Event Artist’s Job Volume

According the latest news, the world’s economy starting recovered from the previous’ economy crisis, thus in our events and entertainment industry was picking up as well.

Due to the economy’s crisis plus the H1N1 incidents, the market really quiet, many entertainers do not have much event booking, this is not a surprise due to our past experience of the SARS incident between the months of November 2002 and July 2003; in such circumstances, event entertainer’s booking definitely not much.

Usually due to such circumstances, you can see some new comers was anxiously asking around why they can’t get more job, I would say this is because they do not see what happen to the big environment, they did not understand the peak and down period of the event industry in Singapore as well, of course this is because due to they are too new and inexperienced.

The new entertainers starting suspect their competitors had been undercut them and they were trying hard to find out what was happening on their competitors.

In my experience, once the market down, all the entertainers will facing the same poor booking problem altogether, nothing about who is under cutting who (unless those really do so).

Technically, it was much tougher to gain more jobs in this industry whether you are part timer or full timer due to same type of entertainers was growing and had been crowded in the current market.

For example, in 1993, caricaturist who’s in the market including Einstein (the pioneer caricaturist in Singapore) from Norway, Eric Ng, Desmond Ng Cheng Eng, Saik, Chong Jit Leong and few more people.

In 2009 today, they are more than 28 caricaturist in the market including Kamal Dollah and his wife Roushi Ye (also known as Singapore Florism Artist),
Reggie Wan, William Lee,
Zaki and his brother Yunos,

Mat Tokang, Belle Kwan, Diana Lim,Mulan Tay,

Work in a Special Place

Time flies as arrow, the F1 event had been over. That was a great experience to work inside the F1 circuit‘s walkabout event area.

Within these 3 days, the most challenging things were the very warm whether and the roaring of the racing cars to me, so to many entertainers and the related work forces.

As a caricaturist, I need to spend more energy to concentrate to draw the guests in this warm whether as well as having distracted by the strong roaring sound by the racing cars.

While the racing cars passing by, you can’t hear any voice or sounds besides the roaring of the engines, due to some performances was on going in different stages like belly dancers, singers etc, they could be having a hard time to catching be their dancing and music rhythms.Anyway, seems everyone enjoy the atmosphere being in the F1 racing area.

Many people was try to go in the racing track to take some photos after the ending of the race in the last day.

Hmmm.. is is the youngster’s ‘Getai’! Haahaa!Great to see some foreign busker down the street while on the way back home.
They really look professional, nice and original, thought as an entertainer, we really need to put more effort on improving our image.
