Roving Caricaturist

One of the important factors to work as an event artist was you needs to take note about the environment. Your working space could be very big (eg. On the football field) or it could be as small as in a restaurant or ballroom that the guests was sitting on the chairs set table by tables.

As a roving caricaturist’s demanded by the organizer, I like to work in a big space, because I like to work in a comfortable space.

Roving in a restaurant, not an easy job, event I had do experienced that since 1990, in 2009’s today, I still need to pay a lots of energy to handle such job carefully during the show time.

You must know where to start, when to pause you drawing while there are someone having a speech during the event. Other than that, you also need to know when to give way for the guests or waiter/ waitress walk pass you while you are roving to draw the sitting guests.

That is a big challenge within this 5minutes to draw a person that having the distraction of the guest being drawn was moving his or her head a lot / someone just walk pass between you and the guest being drawn and so fort….and make sure you drawing still looks alike and having a great resemblance you know…haahaa!

Roving Caricaturist

I not sure whether roving caricaturist is the latest trend and demand in the market or not, but so far almost all my enquiry about my caricature service was roving job, maybe someday I should check with the caricaturists who are worked in this line that are much longer than me to see if this really the current trend.

In my experiences, if you want to work as event caricaturists, you hardly avoid doing roving job, unless you have a real big famous name that can made all the guests in the related events come to sit down on the chair right in front you and let you draw their face.

Once you asked to do roving caricature, you have to be compromised you are belonging to one of the servicing staffs in the event, how was the guests seeing you was depend on your luck; what I mean if you met a group of guest that respect you are a professional or a specialist, you sure can tell and feel it; else some will treat you as an waiter or waitress, hence, once you drawn them and give the drawing to them and they could made a bad comment about it, this is a realistic world.

At this moment, you hardly tell or show people how stunning your background an experiences are, because to such group of people you just a waiter or waitress.

(Photo taken in 1993 while I doing roving caricature in a Valentine day event at Raffles hotel if I am not wrong. I got hair during that time! Heehee!)

Roving Caricature Job

Do a birthday party at Shangri-la Hotel last week. As a professional event artist, you may need to prepare related tools while you do caricature in the related event, one of the common circumstances was client asked you to from doing stationary way to roving way, you properly need a drawing board to clip your paper to do it. For my case, I usually do black & white drawing, hence I just have a custom made waist pouch to put my wax pens and the plastic bag while asked to do roving way.

I think for those who draw in colors, they might need a special design costume or pouch with many portion that able to put their color drawing pens. In my view, that was not easy to do color drawing in a roving way.

Up to now, what I mentioned above is just the basic setting about roving caricature.

Key Chain Caricature Shrink Art

I had been a long time I did not have a chance doing shrink art caricature for key chain under event company.Basically, the process of such art craft was using a special plastic, we just draw something interesting on the surface then put it in a small toast oven in few minutes, and this special plastic will shrink down 50% and became hard, hence it is suitable to put in a key chain ring to make it into an interesting unique key chain.

Traffic Jam inside NTUC Ang Mo Kio HUB

I like to go Ang Mo Kio Hub’s NTUC super market to buy things, except the ‘Shopper’s busy hours” or during weekend unless no choice.During such timing, you can see really big crowd in the ground floor especially inside NTUC. Everyone believe they have a right to walk first, everyone believe other people should automatic give way to them.You can see the ‘trolley traffic jam’ down here, shopper who using trolley will take their own sweet time to push their trolley in the ‘middle of the road’, some people will anyhow park their trolley, it is a common scene you can see down here.
