This is a farewell gift for the CEO of 7-11 and they wanted a ‘big-gulp’ sized caricature. Our usual assignments are A4 or A3, but this is A1 size and there were lots of specific items in the gag. It shows all the different interests and achievements of this great man and also included some of his peculiarities. As a result, the caricature is not only a funny gag, but an interesting narrative of his career. I did not realise that there were more than four hundred 7-11 stores in Singapore until I saw their corporate video for reference. So unlike the usual photo for reference, I was studying him by video which is better material but not easier.
Holy cow! Its Abigail Chay, the hottest babe in Singapore and she has yellow latex gloves with tongs in her hand eyeing for the ahem… Well this is subliminal messaging requested by his staff that I’m not privy to. Hmmm… a state worthy of analysis by Sigmund Freud I suppose.

thanks for dropping by. It took 2 full days to complete this as its unusually big. The framers did a wonderful job too. The subject is a very important person so its a rather bold decision to upsize the bulge. My bet is that it will be flattering for any man. As usual, I told them that if you don’t give me artistic freedom, I’m not taking the job.
I love your work too.
