Larry was born on the same date as Walt Disney and the King of Thailand, so he felt destined to become either a cartoonist or a monarch. His attempt to locate and rule Gilligan's Island as emperor never came to fruition. So he had only one option left.
He began as a caricature artist at Honolulu's Waikiki Beach, then moved to Los Angeles, where he joined DIC Entertainment, a Hollywood animation studio. In 1985 he visited Hong Kong, intending to stay for two weeks, and ended up staying and making a name for himself as a cartoonist. His The World of Lily Wong daily comic strip was considered a belwether of life and politics in Hong Kong. Perhaps for that reason, the strip was abruptly terminated one day when the new, Communist-shoe-licking owner of his newspaper took issue with the way his buddies in the Politburo were portrayed. In 1997 Larry was commissioned by Britain's The Independent to chronicle, in cartoons, Hong Kong's final 100 days under British rule.
He later spent two years in London freelancing for Time, The Economist, Fortune, and others, then returned to Hong Kong to resume Lily Wong in the now-defunct (deservedly so!) newspaper, the Hongkong iMail.
In 2001 Larry put aside cartooning and returned to animation. He designs, produces and directs cartoon animation for television, online, and other media. He also writes columns and essays for magazines and is working on several books. In 2011 he received a fellowship from the MacDowell Colony to work on a literary project.
Larry considers himself a "generic" American: born in New York, raised in California, lived in Georgia, Vermont and Hawai'i. He currently resides in a small village on an island in the South China Sea with his wife, Psychologist Cathy Tsang-Feign, two perfect children, three smelly dogs, as well as many lovely migrating birds and the occasional cobra in the garden. In his spare time, Larry enjoys Snickers bars, cycling, classic literature and trashy romance novels, sometimes all at the same time.
