Happy Lunar New Year!

This past weekend was well spent with friends & loved ones :)

First off, thanks to everyone who attended The Land of Odd Gallery's "$100 & Under Art Show" on Saturday...there was quite a turnout & lots of great artwork.  I really appreciate the support!

I was also able to spend a bit of quality time with my family for the Lunar New Year. In the Vietnamese culture, we call it "Tết", and the common greeting goes like this:  "Chúc mừng năm mới!" (which is basically "Happy New Year!" in Vietnamese).

So...in observance of Tết and The Year of the Tiger, here's a little painting I did for my parents to help usher in some good luck & happiness for 2010:


The Tiger is wearing glasses, as a nod to my Dad.  My Dad is the most wonderful Tiger I know! :)

Chúc mừng năm mới to my family & friends!

"Little Do They Know" (2/2/10)

We've got a fun group at the office called "Sketchup & Mustard" – which was formed by my friend Jin Han, in an effort to bring colleagues together & to help each other keep up with creative side projects.  Last week's theme was "Kids and Their Imagination".

I decided to apply this theme to my latest Little Do They Know comic strip.  Please click the image below to enlarge:

I'll be posting a few more updates soon. Thanks for visiting :)
