Rest In Peace, Mr Lee Kuan Yew

I was working overnight on a new illustration project when the news started streaming in on Facebook and Instagram:

Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew, Singapore’s first Prime Minister, passed away early this morning, at 3.18am, on 23 March 2015.

May he rest in peace…

Gouache and watercolour on A4 Kraft recycled paper.

Just a few nights back, as news of his health deterioration spread across social media platforms, I decided to do a quick sketch of Mr. Lee’s portrait for practice.

Even though he’s got an instantly recognisable face, it’s certainly not easy to capture his likeness on paper.

Maybe I’ll leave this at his memorial, along with everyone’s well wishes and prayers…
