There's something about elections season that brings out the creative streak in Singaporeans.

As the island prepares to head for the polls on Friday (11 September 2015), some talented citizens have been getting their artistic flair on and sharing their works on social media.

Days after President Tony Tan Keng Yam issued the Writ of Election of Aug 25, Facebook page A Good Citizen released a cartoon by Citizen Dan featuring several candidates – namely Dr Chee Soon Juan, Ms Kevryn Lim, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, Mr Low Thia Khiang and Mr Kenneth Jeyaretnam – as the playable character classes from popular role-playing game franchise, Diablo.



CHOOSE YOUR PARTY!

You can wear this artwork by Citizen Dan. From now till polling day you can grab this design (and others) at The Local Collective for SGD25. The Local Collective is the not-so-official merchandiser for GE2015.

If you really dig the design, you can even get it as a T-shirt from The Local Collective.

Candidates haven't just been getting the video game treatment – thanks to the online brigade of Photoshoppers like Facebook page PixelGod, they've been turned into movie characters and superheroes as well.

From photoshopped posters like this one of Chinese epic Red Cliff:

People's Action Party candidate Tin Pei Ling received the Wonder Woman treatment to delivering the justice she deserves to Mr Cheo Chai of the National Solidarity Party after his sexist tirade against her.

Of course, what's a Singapore election without a local movie being featured? Here's PixelGod's take of Mr Tan Chuan-Jin literally running for office via the movie poster for Jack Neo's Homerun.

Local film-maker Royston Tan even spotted a spoof of his upcoming movie 3688 on social media and sent it to us.

Here's the spoof and the original poster from 3688's official Facebook page for comparison:
