Keith Tan Chee Siang.
F**king child abuser.

Forced a nine-year-old boy to stand still,
then brutally kicked a football thrice at the defenseless child,
causing him to suffer bodily pain and resulting in a nose bleed.

Even worse, he was ordered to pay a paltry $108 as compensation
to the boy.

What do they actually teach at law schools in Singapore??

This further solidifies what I have been rightfully suspecting all along:
Singapore's legal system is run by nincompoops.

Did you vote?

This was done way back in 2004,
complete with a big-ass CRT TV and what I think is a Nokia handphone!

What young people want

2,100 youths were asked to give ideas on how to build a better Singapore

One of the suggestions is hostel living for all undergraduates,
so sparks will fly and couples will marry younger.

Not the same (Part One)

It's quite fun to deviate from my usual style once in a while.

I had to illustrate a story about overprotective mothering,
and I decided to make the drawing look different from what

This next one is for an article about an online black market
that offers essay-writing services for hundreds of dollars.

Despite warnings from schools that students caught paying
for their grades could be expelled, those services are thriving.

I tried a new look by mimicking a student's doodling on
a notepad paper using a ballpoint pen:

Here are the steps I take when drawing my Sunday strips on my Wacom Cintiq:
1) Start with the grids
2) Insert the dialogues
3) Sketch the drawings in blue
4) Go over with black
5) Colour...
6) ...then print!

What you see below was done up to Step #3,
after it was deemed unprintable in the national newspaper:

You people are in for a treat!

Here is another of my Sunday strips that stalled at the "Blue Draft Stage":

I have no idea why this one got a "no-go" for print.

Maybe it's too close to what happens in hospitals in real life?

From the Rejection Pile ("The screen")

This cartoon did not make it to print because the editor was concerned
that many readers might not get it.

But if you do, you must be a person of a certain age (like me!).

First, some background:

The Land Transport Authority is testing new display panels in buses
that help commuters plan their journeys.

The screens will display info such as the bus service number,
the current bus stop, the upcoming stops, and the end destination.

This was what I came up with:

Google "TVMobile" if you are not familiar with it.

You have no idea how lucky you are to not have to endure this insufferable gadget.

I loathe it with a passion.
