So you’ve read Teo You Yenn’s book, but have you seen the movie? I’m so excited to have drawn and animated this–an illustrated version of “Growing Up In An Unequal Society”, the talk she gave for the Singapore Children’s Society lecture in September. It was an absolute delight and honour to work on such rich and important material. Please watch and share.

If you’ll allow me to raise my head from the books for a moment: here is a video that accompanies a fundraising drive for Singapore’s first and only specialist service supporting women who have experienced sexual assault. It features the powerful testimony of survivors of sexual assault – talking about, among other things, the importance of supportive services to their recovery. Please watch, give and share! [Disclaimer: this service is run by my employers!]
At some point I must put into text my EXCITEMENT about Sarah Waters’ The Paying Guests (Sarah Waters! Squee!) but that point is not now.
