Caricature for Dinner and Dance at Pan Pacific Hotel

Just completed a caricature fringe arts at The Pan Pacific Hotel Singapore for Chanel's annual dinner. As my usual drawing style: using 2 hands to draw, my trade mark in the event industry.
I had been doing such drawing style since 1990, I am the only person who draw using both hands in Singapore so far.I am not the best artist in the industry but as long I have a chance to do the show, always try my best to ensure my quality and quantities within the booking hours.
There are always better artist appeared every second,nobody can control the world, everyone learn from scratch,anyone every heard any baby born from hospital and start to draw already? Heehee! The world is fair enough ;p
I don't teach, so anyone said he or she is my student or partner that using both hand to draw, is copycat and fake artists. There are so many caricaturists in the market now since around 3-4 years ago.
So many caricaturists doing event in the market, unfortunately, each of their standards was very big different according clients and some event companies feedback. Basically, there are too many event companies using cheapest artist so they can earn more, it had been caused a lots of problem. Anyway, seems getting cheapest artist is the current trend!

It depend what kind of guests you going to entertain for your event, your choice to go for quality artist or go for cheapest artist, "just someone show face as a caricaturist will do lah"! All depend on your budget of course ;p

Some of my work.

Chinese Paper Cutting Preparation

After the peak period for dinner and dance in December, is time to prepare my Chinese new year theme item, which is Chinese Paper Cutting.
I remember in about 15 years ago, the artist who hired in the event, they just need to do some simple demo,the main resemblance of Chinese Paper Cutting just from the pre made artwork displayed from the artists. The most art piece to be giving away just limited to 1 or 2 pieces within the whole duration of the event booking. That was big different compared with nowadays, every items of event booking we must prepare certain amounts to be giving away during the event booking hour.
I would say, for event wise, only few people doing Chinese Paper Cutting in Singapore, because this item was really tedious and too time consuming to be produced, it just a seasonal art that having limited life time.
