I am having cabin fever, so I wanted to draw something outdoorsy like this tandem canoe.

The weather will be above 50 degrees in the coming week, in the Northeast. I hope to get out on the water and do some paddling because the outside is my gym. Being active is good for the body and soul.

When possible, I like to paddle with a friend or family member like in this video with my Uncle. (He is the one who inspired me to do Winter skiing and Summer paddling).

What are you going to do when it warms up? Maybe go walk, hike or cycle? I would love to know :)

In case you didn’t know… I enjoy fishing and drawing. I felt it was about time to combine my two pleasures in my cartoon. My characters, who love fresh sushi, go on a boat to catch the big one. To their surprise, they reel in something much bigger than they expected.

Happy New Years everybody!

I did a cartoon drawing for my friend’s birthday. He is from Britain and loves the Vespa scooter. One day, he wants to get the classic scooter. But for now, I hope he likes my card drawing.

casita_trailer_by_al_lau

I recently went on a camping trip to the Adirondacks. Car camping, that is. Access to a real bathroom is one luxury I can’t do without. Anyway, I couldn’t help but notice a cute tiny trailer in a nearby site. It is called the Casita. It is small but is complete with a bed, air conditioning and propane stove. Talk about luxury :)  So… I had to draw it!

I’m sorry that I haven’t been posting art as often as I used to. The reason is I have been dedicating more time to my video channel. Creating content and editing the footage takes a lot of time. And so my artwork has suffered I guess. But then again, making video is a form of being creative too. Right? So I figured why not add it to my blog website.

Both my artwork and my videos mostly fall under a common theme – the Outdoors and Nature. I want to officially introduce my videos on a more regular basis. Without further ado, below is a video I made about Camping and Canoeing in the Adirondacks. It features a glimpse of what camping is like near the popular Northern Forest Canoe Trail and includes the Casita trailer that I saw. Please feel free to Subscribe & Like it if you think I did a good job (fingers crossed). Happy Fall everybody!

forehand_return_by_al_lau

The US Open Men’s and Women’s finals are on this weekend. Who do you want to win the tournament?

My drawing is of a player, staying low, to perform a forehand return. Much like Osaka’s brilliant technique which she used to beat Madison Keys in the semi-final. This was a fun sketch to do because of the simplicity and flowing lines to capture the human form in action.
