Freelance Creative Exchange


Jun 26, 2020

Comics illustration have caught the eye of Singaporeans amid the overwhelming flow of virus related information. From the start of the pandemic, local artists and illustrators are using the medium of comics to document our collective experiences and educate the public. We speak to Evangeline Neo from Evacomics about why comics are such a great tool for public education as well as her creative process in engaging and educating her audience about the pandemic through her weekly comic strip. Welcome to our new resilience series, where we invited previous Freelance Creative Exchange podcast guests to discuss how they are dealing with Circuit Breaker and if they have any advice or encouraging words for the rest of us during this challenging period.
