I was in the middle of working on an entirely different comic strip when this idea for a one-panel, The New Yorker-esque cartoon caption idea popped into my head that I couldn’t shake. So I listened to my gut and switched gears. The drawing and writing came so naturally. I’m happy with the way it […]
Great news to share: I received a grant opportunity from Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) to produce creative, culturally resonant communications about COVID-19 and vaccinations. It’s the perfect art opportunity fit considering the recent comic work I’ve been creating highlighting life during the pandemic and my interest in sharing as much vaccine information as I can. I’m super excited and […]
This latest comic for Sampan Newspaper was inspired by a Facebook post. Someone left a comment thanking their friend for sharing vaccine sign up information and that they would forward the link to their mother. I was taken aback. What? You’re not handling the sign up process for her? That’s a luxury that I am […]
The relief I feel now that I’ve been able to secure one of the very few vaccine spots for my mom and in-laws has now been tempered by the fact that even if they get fully vaccinated, I’m gonna have to worry about them getting hate-crime’d when they’re out and about. Anti-Asian hate crimes are […]
It was a challenge navigating the MA Covid-19 vaccine sign up process for my dad who was eligible because he falls in the 75+ category for phase 1.

Phase 3 of Boston’s reopening begins today.
Who else is worried about getting hate-crimed?
In the beginning, I went hog wild with every chip you could imagine – dill pickle chips, Cheetos, Doritos, boba popcorn, shrimp chips, Andy Capp’s hot fries, honey butter chips and it goes on and on.
The temptation grows with each day. Maybe this time will be different…or maybe not.
My latest covid-19 comic was inspired by a brilliant gif.
It seems as though everyone is expecting the other person to initiate the six feet of social distancing. In the end, no separation has been met – it’s just business as usual.
As we all move into video meetings, online learning and television interviews, there’s just one tip to be mindful of. Because in addition to social distancing, let’s also practice video distancing.
This coronavirus era has just reaffirmed my mother’s food hoarding / apocalypse planning ways. I guess she was right all along.
In the pre-Coronavirus era, everyone was fine being their nasty selves. Handwashing? WTF was that? After Coronavirus?
PAX East is a week away and SONY has decided to pull out of the convention over coronavirus (aka COVID-19) fears. Seriously?
It’s a great time be an Asian and Asian American. Coronavirus hysteria is in full force and you can feel extra long looks on you as you’re out and about.
