Cheah Sinann is a Malaysian self-taught and self-syndicated cartoonist based in Singapore. He draws ‘Budi & Saltie’ – a green-oriented daily cartoon strip about a Borneo boy and his pal, a huge saltwater crocodile that is featured in the ‘Borneo Bulletin’. Against the backdrop of South-east Asian rain forests and swamps, ‘Budi & Saltie’ tackles issues on life, wildlife, and conservation with tremendous wit and humour. Sinann also maintains ‘Event Horizon’, a weekly editorial cartoon on the latest happenings in science and discovery.

In a span of 20 years, he has come up with famous works including ‘The House of Lim’, a popular cartoon strip about a three-tiered Chinese family, which ran in ‘The Straits Times’ in Singapore, where he worked in the 80s and 90s. His works can be seen in houseofcheah.com.houseofcheah.com
