Edric Hsu is a freelance illustrator and avid sketcher whose style is influenced by his background in architecture and the theatre, as well as his love for travel, photography, food, books, music, and art. Edric is also an accomplished singer and a familiar face in local films, TV commercials, stage plays and musicals, with a variety of leading roles under his belt over the past two decades. However, art, in the form of sketching and painting, remains his meditation and joy. And recently it has led to commissioned work in installation art, magazine illustrations, and even book deals with a major publisher. Look out for Edric's first solo book of his paintings, "Scenes of Thailand", at the book stores. Visit http://www.facebook.com/edricism or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
