Tiger Translate


This was done for Tiger Translate sometime last year. It's now on their site under the "Change" theme. The illustration was my take of how global warming to its extreme might see little Singapore sinking with lots of sea water around. Even though the little guy is surrounded by water, there's nothing he can consume and so is really happy when he sees bottles of Tiger Beer floating in the distance. A friend who saw my illustration thought I'd intentionally put the number "40" (read as say-deng) meaning bound to die in cantonese and thought it was really apt, which made me laugh! :)
