I was at Dinacon for almost four days in the first week of the conference, and created illustrations and comics about my time on the island.
A Kayaking (Mis)adventure
Featuring Danielle and Shreyasi
Singapore Foodscapes Illustration
Created for Foodscape Collective, commissioned by Huiying; as part of a public letter about urban farming and agri-diversity in Singapore
I wanted to portray what alternative foodscapes, imaginary or otherwise, there are to standard food practices in Singapore. A little boy picking up a fallen fruit in a supermarket encounters a dream-like glimpse into another world where product and nature are entwined. It is a farmer’s stall in a luscious, colourful setting, glowing in stark contrast to his own sterile surroundings. I was inspired by the lush vegetation on the island.
