The Beginning: 

Recollections of my initiation into doodling elude me. There were no artistic mentors within my immediate family circle, guiding me through the strokes of a budding artist. From my earliest memories, I find myself engrossed in the act of drawing, employing any available flat surface as my canvas – be it paper, newspaper, desk, floor, blackboard, or wall.

An incident etched in my memory involves a reprimand that summoned my parents to the school. The cause? An epic pirate ship battle vividly illustrated atop a pristine classroom desk. My father, an import/export businessman, cognizant of my penchant for American comics, took an unconventional approach. He subscribed me to Mad Magnize and Playboy, oh yes I only read its' articles, fostering my artistic  inclinations. Furthermore, he urged me to submit my drawings to newspapers for potential publication.

 

My inaugural venture into the

public domain occurred at the

age of 9, with the publication

of my drawing depicting an

F-86 Sabre fighter jet. This 

milestone graced the children's

section of the Central Daily

News (中央日報) in Taipei,

Taiwan.

Unfortunately, the original or any copies have sincevanished, prompting the recreation of the drawing presented here for illustrative purposes.

From that juncture onward, my artistic contributions became a consistent presence in the children and youth sections of newspapers,

a trend that endured until my high school graduation in 1963.

While in high school, my cartoons were published in many newspapers.
