Simply put, Work Buddies is a collection of desktop accessories that keep you company through the collective shared trauma we call work.
Not-so-simply put, Work Buddies is an exploration into the work culture of Southeast Asia's most stressful country drawn from years of practical research. The forms of the figurines are inspired by individuals that can be found in offices around the country. The figurines lack any colour beyond sparse streaks of black to reflect the dull and monotonous corporate grind — this is absolutely in no part due to any form of laziness on the artists' end.
Take home a Work Buddy and place it on your office desk to feel a little less alone at work and show your colleagues your questionable spending habits.
highnunchicken is a group of cartoonists that finds joy in this mundane and miserable ritual we call life in Singapore. They tend to draw inspiration from their 9-5 jobs and various other petty grievances.
It's not all that serious, and there are better things for you to spend your time with on online.
