I've Got You On My Back
The Zebu, a breed of cow descended from wild Asian aurochs, is arguably the most important livestock for rural Cambodians. Not only does it provide meat and a source of income, it is often used as a draught animal as many rural Cambodians are still too poor to afford trucks and tractors. Its dung is also used as fertilizer and fuel. Keep a lookout for these animals the next time you visit a Cambodian village, but watch where you step!

Joshua is a Singapore born artist now based in Phnom Penh. Ever since he successfully sold the only copy of his first original hand-drawn comic-book The Adventures of Hercules and Odysseus to his mother for a meal at the age of nine, Joshua Chiang has been filled with an unquenchable belief that he will achieve greatness in the realm of visual storytelling. In 2017, Joshua started Candid Cambodia, a collection of illustrations about what’s peculiar in Cambodia. He draws his inspiration from the day to day happenings in the streets of Phnom Penh. Joshua is probably most well-known in Cambodia for his pile-up art illustration of a motordop ferrying a large number of passengers and much more, capturing the spirit of anything goes in this country.
