Why don’t we learn from the birds and fly together?
Oil on canvas
50 x 50 cm (each)

You might have seen flocks of birds flying together in  formation rather than a single bird flying over a long distance. Flocking enables them to go further while protecting and supporting one another. During the trying times of the COVID-19 crisis, it is even more crucial for us to work together to resist the difficulties and adapt to the new normal. In this painting, my friends and I are passing each other cranes through windows as a symbol of support, even if we are socially distanced, especially during the Circuit Breaker. Despite all the uncertainties and struggles, we should stand by one another like birds, to thrive and to find comfort and happiness in challenging times.

The mousetrap
Digital illustration

"To be or not to be", that's the dilemma Prince Hamlet from Hamlet faced when he was pondering on how to use a play to catch the conscience of his uncle. However, instead of portraying Hamlet in the middle age, I decided to take on a modern twist in his clothing and give Hamlet a pair of glasses to emphasise that all in all, Hamlet is not only just the tragic prince but a manipulative scholar.

Mama where's my baby Dono
Digital illustration

Shylock the cobra snakey snake

Becomes a watch when he's awake

Oh no! Where's hiss majestic scales?

It's fine he shall adapt to these all.

 

Dono the poor little turtle. Wake up

To find him in a black deep hole

Mama where's my baby Dono

Is all this poor turtle could hear at all.

 

Oh my watch starts to have some scales

Sometimes it even starts slithering

And gets bigger and bigger

Oh is that my baby Dono

 

You have no way to slither away so silently

Words are tsunami
Graphic Design

Words on the Internet spread like waves that radiate outwards from a source. Ironically, such a powerful force starts from a simple click. Hence, we need to be aware of our actions as a simple mouse click could lead to dire outcomes. As the Chinese saying goes, "千夫所指,无病而死".

Think first, post second
Graphic Design

I have observed that with the increased use of the internet, the global cyberbullying rate is also increasing. People are more daring to make comments when they do so behind a screen. I feel that it is important to raise people’s awareness of the detrimental effects of vicious and groundless posts, and hopefully get them to think twice before they post.
