star wars_postcards_by_al_lau

Since Disney acquired the franchise, the Star Wars story and characters took an interesting direction. Do you like how episode 7 (The Force Awakens) and episode 8 (The Last Jedi) have turned out?

The part I do enjoy is how they breathed new life for a whole new generation and we old school fans get to experience the nostalgia we had as kids. Those opening credits gets me every time. And John Williams’ musical score still gives me tingles.

I created fan art postcards in celebration of Star Wars. The set of 4 cartoon drawings are now available at my store.

May the force be with you!

My cartoon celebrates the classic scene from the original Star Wars trilogy. It also honors the old but wise Yoda. I remember as a kid learning how powerful this short wrinkly creature was. It is totally shocking. Right? Yoda is also the perfect representation the idea in Asian culture to respect your elders. In many ways, he is ultimate hero of the galaxy.

By the way, a movie called Solo: A Star Wars is out this weekend. Which is your favorite film out of all of the Star Wars franchise so far?

My brother is a big fan of Star Wars, as am I. And he recently had a baby boy. I drew a cartoon as a homemade card to send to him. What do you think of it?

Dear fellow trekkies and adventurers of all kinds.

I can’t let this week beam by me without doing a little drawing in honor of the Star Trek universe. The tv show (namely, the original series, The Next Generation and Voyager), and the movies have inspired my imagination for so many years.

My sketch shows the classic Enterprise traveling at warp factor 9.

Happy 50th Anniversary, Star Trek!

As always, New York Comic Con was a blast, be it a crowded venue. Suprisingly to me, as a casual gamer, there were no booths for Microsoft Xbox, Sony Playstation or Rockstar Games like previous years. Nintendo did have plenty of representation with stations featuring their Wii U, DS, Mario and Donkey Kong lines. Still, with less video gaming stuff, that gave me more time to browse comics, toys, collectibles, meet other artists and take photographs. Here are some pics I want to share with you.
