Comfort “Food”

In Chinese culture, at least what I’ve been brought up and told, it is typically going to be a bad year for those whose sign is being celebrated. That probally calls for one to stay in and avoid doing things. I tried to do the opposite and in doing so that has lead me down the path of “being a foodie”. I’ve come across some great people and some not so great people. Art has always been a part of who I am and these two passions have combined and I was recently asked to create some drawings from a few foodie friends. Here they are.

“Mario Kart” at the Niagara Speedway

It has been awhile since I’ve post a video. So, buckle up because here we go!!!

I finally made it out the the Niagara Speedway to do a few laps around the multi-leveled go-kart track in Niagara Falls. Apparently, it’s the go to kart track in North America. It has been deemed “Mario Kart-style”, although not affiliated with Nintendo in anyway, perhaps it is because it successfully brings together traditional go-karts with the added fun & excitement of a rollercoaster with an elevated track and sharp turns. You can speed down the straightaways, whip around the turns, all while heading for the checkered flag.

The Niagara Speed way is open from 10am to 1am daily. It’s $12 if you want to get behind the wheel and $4 if you just want to enjoy the ride. There is a height requirement and limit. Video recording is allowed, but your camera must be affixed to your body, no hand head devices.

It’s Been Awhile…

It has been a long time since I posted an artwork. Not that I’ve stopped creating, I just haven’t posted any to the site.

So here’s a sneak peek, if you will, of the latest piece that I was working on. This took me awhile to finish for a number a reasons.
