I Created This Series Of Comics And Artwork In Response To The Coronavirus Epidemic

I am a picture-book author and artist from Singapore and have always been expressing my views on social issues and sharing positive messages through my comics and artwork.

In late Jan 2020, the coronavirus started to spread and developed very rapidly and Singapore is faced with new social issues almost every other day (from the panic buying of masks to food hoarding to littering of used masks, etc.) So I started creating artworks and comics as a fast way to express my thoughts on these issues.

The first piece I did was actually a “logo” created using the Chinese characters of Wuhan and incorporating a blue ribbon, along with the hashtag #PrayForWuhan. That was done on 30 January after I was saddened by days of bad news about how the virus is spreading rapidly in China. I did the piece hoping to spread some positivity and rally support for Wuhan in their fight against the virus. Very soon, that developed into a series of artworks and comics which I shared online every 2 – 3 days.

Coronavirus really sucks. My best friend's niece died from it recently & the entire family is in shock. She was such a bright, happy little girl. Thank you for making these comics. Everyone needs to band together in times of need.

Yes, the coronavirus really sucks. I have friends and relatives staying in Wuhan and its heartbreaking to hear what they are going through over there. It is really time for everyone to stay united if we want to win this fight against the virus.

I live in Birmingham UK, and it's horrible to hear about the racial attacks both verbal and physical that the Chinese community is suffering. People are so ignorant and appalling in equal measures. It's like Brexit has become a green light for the far right to rear it's ugly head

Larger than Chinese, really. Anyone who looks east Asian is a target.
