Art in progress: Refugees 2

The last piece for Brush Gallery.  Don’t know the direction I want to take the final CG composition, but the drawing portion took too long to finish, or rather come to a stopping point.  I started the heads before I got sick, it got left empty for awhile, and I spent all of today rendering the rest […]

Art: Dancers 2

Update: This drawing took an awful long time to color.  I’m hoping that it looks okay when printed out in large format. The title is Dancers 2, but the subject matter features just a few costumes of the many different cultures in the small country of Laos. The second piece for Brush Gallery.  Kinda lost my momentum when I got […]

Art in progress: Monks 3

Sorry for the lack of updates, still recovering from chickenpox, of all things…that and the usual stuff.  This is a preview of one of the art pieces for a gallery in Lowell, MA.

Photos: Speedlight in a Softbox

Learned a thing or two in Miami and got a chance to try it out with my own setup.  Thanks to others on the web, it’s quite easy to shoot using a remote speedlight (a flash) in a softbox. Now granted, these shots will never compete for any covers anytime soon, but I think it’s so cool that the technology […]

Lao Art

What does it mean to be a Lao artist? I don’t know, but I did put some of my random Lao themed artwork in this portfolio:   Like I’ve already expressed, growing up Lao in America, you get the best of both cultures. There’s the graceful dances, food, a second language, and the respect you […]

Photos: Boston

…………You know…………there’s more to me than drawings and photos of pretty girls………… I had a chance to finally view Jack Silberman’s very moving film on unexploded bombs in Laos.  The film is called Bombies, and everyone should really check it out.  What’s that information doing on my page, a journal that supposedly only focuses on my random […]

Photos: Miami

Miami was a fun but really expensive city. Went down there and saw how a professional photographer shot in an environment just made for photos. I was actually more amazed at his story, a model in the 1980’s, turned house music DJ, to photographer. The photos that I took (leeched) off the side should hopefully […]

Atlanta Dragon Boat Festival 2007

Hong Kong Association Dragon Boat Race and Festival September 8, 2007 | Olympic Venue, Clark’s Bridge, Lake Lanier It was another fun all day event at the boat race. I remember some of the past ones being rather tame, and to be honest, in the last few years, the increased Laotian participation has made it quite festive, with […]
