    Did this illustration for the Circuit Breaker period in Singapore. More than a month ago, I was still working at a studio, going to the hawker centre to have kopi-o-siu-dai and wanton mee with my studio-mate. Today, dining out is out, the playground is closed, and masking tape is everywhere for social-distancing measures. It is a challenging time as we cope with the new norms that would likely persist beyond the circuit breaker. Most of us are staying at home. Working and learning form home and coping with it in our ways: cooking, music, art, yoga, writing or plenty of Studio Ghibli films. Some are going beyond by volunteering, promoting social awareness, raising charity funds to help the less fortunate, the migrant workers, and the elderly. Behind the scenes, there is a whole system and team of people working to keep Singapore running so that we could stay at home, taking care of our loved ones and working with peace of mind: deliverymen who could bring a little comfort like mee chiang kueh from Ghim Moh or bubble tea. Supermarket workers who stock the shelves with pasta sauces or vegetables. On the front lines, medical personnel, the SAF and first-responders and volunteers are keeping our daily situation in check as the pandemic continues to develop globally. This illustration is done in collaboration with Gov.sg The work is a homage to the ongoing efforts against Covid-19 from people from all walks of life. We are all in this together. Stay strong, stay healthy, stay sane and stay safe!
