Caricature at Orchid Country Club

Did caricature for pre-event today.Edwin Tan from Pho Leng Lion Dance Instruction Centre was doing Chinese Calligraphy in the event.Mohammed F.B.I doing his snake chaming!

Roving Caricature Job

Did event yesterday night at Zouk.That was a nice place!One of my friend was caught using the roving caricature gear exactly same as Mr Kamal Dollah's gear set! Heehee!I think that was a good idea that using such gear that originally invent by Mr Kamal Dollah (if I am not guess wrongly), he is one of Singapore's famous and International Accredited top rated caricaturist. I believe you can really safe lots energy by using it. But I think for those who drive, is quiet good to carry this gear.

For my case, I do not drive, so I still prefer using my drawing board that support by my fat stomach whenever I do roving caricature! Heehee! ...and hope using my fat stomach to support my drawing board can help to burn more fat! Hiahiahia!

Just my dinner with friends!

Taxi Driver Who Did Not Know The Road

I am not sure whether I don't have luck to take the right taxi, that was very high chances the taxi I took always who do not know the road and drive to the wrong place.

Due to my job, I need to take taxi often, so based past bad experiences, I always have my map with me and recently I even bought the Navigator device.

Unfortunately, many lousy taxi driver who seems not living in Singapore always drive to the wrong place or told me never heard the road name before, that was really a Big Big shame of them.

If you say I might having poor expression or bad conversation, then if I SHOW THE PRINTED MAP + NAVIGATOR WITH VOICE ASSISTS, can they still unable to drive to the destination?

It happened to night! This taxi driver told me he stay in Clementi, while I tole him I wanted to go Kent Ridge Crescent and go in by Clementi Road, but he drove me to west coast road, he insist not look at my map and the Navigator's guide, end up went to the wrong place again and again!

It really 'impress' the tourists who came to Singapore, a world class and famous branded Singapore!

I hope the related firm should do something about this.
Hardly understand what wrong with these group taxi driver who do not know the road.

The real professional I ever met which he really tried his best call up his friend or colleagues to guide him how to drive to the destination I required, unfortunately I had not met the second one who do this since 2 years ago.

A Cold Rainy Day

Due to the current economy status and many other reasons, thought the booking of event artists / entertainers was cut down in November and December; it could be due to maybe many companies having their dinner and dance in smaller budgets, hence the pre-events activities was cut down, thus in this year’s November (or December) many entertainers / event artist not fully booked over every weekend.This is just our quick view after chit chatting with each other within our entertainer and event artist circle. Basically, this is a little bit strange for all of us but it did happened so far.

Fortune Teller for Events

Fortune telling is one of the popular pre event booking items.
Basically, it can be categorized in 2 types:
which more belonging Western type or either Eastern type.

For western type, Numerology, Tarot Card reading, Crystal, Crystal stone reading is commonly seen. Tea leaf fortune telling as you seen in Harry Potter movie which I had ever seen was done by Angela Yip so far.

Renae's tarot card and numerology fortune telling.Paul's Crystal stone reading.
Graphology, which commonly known as Hand writing Character Analysis is one item that people thought it belonging to fortune telling category but it actually not, it belonging to statistic type of human character analysis according the graphologist, it is Science, claimed by them.

For eastern type, Palm reading is of the common item.
The latest eastern type fortune telling which I seen in recent years including ‘Yi Jing’ or ‘E Jing’ (易经)fortune telling, Chinese poker card reading during pre events, as I know, specialist who doing event is rare, not because having rare master, but related master who can speaking English is rare due to conversation in English is essential during the event booking.

Most of the eastern type fortune telling was commonly seen in the ‘Shanghai Theme’, “Eastern Theme’, Chinese Culture theme and Chinese New Year period.

One of the unique eastern type can be seen is the Indian Parrot‘s Card ‘fortune telling, which the Indian master will get his Parrot pick one of the pre-written fortune telling card on the table to the Indian master (its owner), the card being picked was your fortune of the day ;p

Event Caricaturist Day!

6.30pm – 7.30pm, 11th, December, Friday, 2009!
6.30pm – 7.30pm, 18th, December, Friday, 2009!

That was many event companies asking for caricaturist to do their dinner and dance since 2 months ago, as per usual, the above date and timing is the hot date for caricaturists’ pre-event booking.

Does it mean the economy of the market had picked up?
I don’t think so, because is just happened the whole Singapore island’s related companies having dinner and dance from 6.oo pm onwards.

Train 500 caricaturists to meet the ‘Caricaturists Day’ to meet the market’s need?
Wrong question! From my experiences, it only occurs 1 to 3 times within each year so far.

There are up and down period within the year, it could happened that continuously no events caricaturists demand or having super low demand, for example like the period that having H1N1 cases, many caricaturists will try to look for job and trying hard to check which competitor is undercutting them. Haahaa!

6.30pm – 7.30pm, 11th, December, Friday, 2009, can do pre-event caricature?
6.30pm – 7.30pm, 18th, December, Friday, 2009, can do pre-event caricature?

As an event caricaturist, please ask yourself how many places you can go in above mentioned time frame?

Clone 50 of you so made the 50 cloned ‘you’ grab the entire job?
Nope! Because the 50 cloned you already a real human, ‘they’ need to use the money to survive (just like eat, drink, clothing and related expenses)

My idea is getting 50 ‘Surrogates’ of me (a robot which made exactly like me, see Bruce Willis’s movie), so after the 50 ‘Me’ done the entire job, just back home and past me the earned $, and then all of them go back to the cupboard and sleep (or charging electricity)!

Hia hia!

Caricature at Jurong Bird Park

Just did a caricature for a dinner and dance’s fringe activity at Jurong Bird Park yesterday. I almost lost after struggling finding the actual event venue. I saw my friend doing their rehearsal in this amphitheater, I thought my booking venue is here; luckily I call up the event company who hired me and found out the right place. Phew!I managed to take some bird photos.
