Roving Caricaturist

Seems most of my caricature booking was in a roving style which holding my drawing board to the guests and draw them. I am not sure whether roving caricature drawing had been became a trend or not.Basically, roving artists were commonly requested by the event organizers; hence, as a professional entertainer, we must be able to do roving anytime upon request or based the circumstances.

The good things about doing roving, we felt more freedom to do our job and mostly emphasizes on our showmanship which need to know how we present our drawing in the events, how to create an entertaining atmosphere to the event etc.

The difficult of doing roving caricature was the guest being drawing could be moving too often, some other guests just do not care what is happening and just cross between you and your guest being drawn especially in an event with crowded guests and waiter/waitress, other than crossing by between you and the person being drawing that could be someone accidentally push your body or your hands and caused the drawing in an unexpected outcome.

Hence doing roving caricature, other then try your best to do a looks alike drawing and merge it in your drawing styles, you need to just like Jackie Chan or Jet Li in their kung fu movie which need to handle many distractions like after somebody walk across between you and your guests being drawn, you still need to take care not accidentally push by someone, not accidentally pushing someone or blocking the entrance or blocking people’s view on the projector screen etc etc. one more thing: the narrow of the working space like in a restaurant, the more difficult for us to work; you really need another level of skills to handle all this.

In children parties, if you are lucky, you can meet a lots of young guests that able to sit stills and let you them, else they could be running around and very impatient to be drawn, this could be a tough job. Haahaa!

Drawing in a very dim light places? In a dim light, you need to have a strong drawing basic skill and experiences, because the detail of the face of the guest was less due to dim lighting. I don’t think you bring a mini torch can solve the problem, it need some skills I had been mentioned just now.Drawing with roving in a very dim light places especially like a pub that having many blinking lighting effect? It is another type of tough job, much more skills and experiences and energy to be required! Heehee!

Big Body Kai Lan and Sharks Steak

Bought this big body Kai Lan from NTUC supermarket, my first time cook kai lan in such size. I just cut it in small slices to ensure it easier to get cook.Just display it in Chinese’s ‘Ba Gua’ matrix. Heehee!Another new ingredient which is I going to try in my first time as well!My typical cooking way! Haahaa!Hmm..I just realized the way to cook and the ingredients for sharks meat is different, not suitable with my ginger chicken ingredients, thought the mushroom XO sauce which I use few days ago to cook the salmon is much better for this sharks steak.

Cooking to me is an art, just like my caricature, having many things to learn in a long going way. Heehee!

White Button Mushroom

Bought this white mushrooms from Cold Storage Super Market, and cook with my ginger chicken ingredients.Hmm….white button mushroom in this dish was good to me, I only feel the great unique taste of this mushroom while the time I bite on it; not like black China mushrooms that usually merge its taste in the cooking sauces.

Hmm... Different mushrooms added in this dish will having different outcome. Now I realized that for this particular dish was only suitable to cook with one type of mushroom instead adding assorted mushrooms.

Just add one more vegetables for my “lunch + dinner set” :)

Caricature at Meritus Mandarin Hotel Singapore

Did an event yesterday, great to meet Ivan and Lee Lee doing airbrush tattoo( wire crafts!!!Look at Ivan’s tools! You should not doubt his skill! Hia hia hia!The building of the new add-on shopping mall on Meritus Mandarin Hotel Singapore is on the move.
Due to the economy crisis, Orchard’s crowd was much lesser, only saw some busking artists down the street.Partial of the new look of Paragon after renovation.O! This is one new thing that belong the 'Make over of Orchard Road Project', nice artistic glass! Not sure whether they will add onj some more stuffe on that, because I see this glass was very fragile.This ‘mini column’ starting from the pedestrian walk from Border bookshop to Forum Shopping Mall was seen since last year’s November until today, I still can’t figure out what is that and what stuff they are going to put on in these ‘Make Over project’
