Roving Caricaturist

Studio caricaturist which work in studio or art workshop or gallery, it totally different from an event caricaturist. Because in the studio, the caricaturist only serving individual customer in live drawing or draw from photos. They can use whatever tools like easel or table and sit in a comfortable way as they like while working on the drawing.

Event caricaturist, which work as an artist who need to entertain immediate and unpredictable crowd in the event like family day, dinner and dance, product launch and etc.

As an event caricaturist, sometime we unable to know whether the event we are doing surely having proper setting like providing table and chairs for us or not; I had experience many times that the event venue totally do not have any proper setting, it forcing us do our caricature drawing in a roving way.

Sometime you have to start to do your caricature drawing in the indicated time frame to meet the schedule of the event or it could be because you have to finished your drawing session on the dot which allow you to rush to another event booking, it made you having no choice to start your drawing in a roving way as well.

Some venue, like some pub do not have suitable table and chairs for you to set your drawing corner, or the organizer want all artists entertain the guests in a dynamic way, that also part of the reason that caused us do our caricature in a roving way. As a experienced and professional event caricaturist, you have to know how to handle such unpredictable situation, thus, you must be able to be flexible and having proper tools to handle it.

Am I right to say : A professional event caricaturist, should be able to handle any or many difference kind of situation to make the event or our program run smoothly?

Hence, can I say: "A Professional Caricaturist" is totally different from "A Professional Event Caricaturist"?

Because "A Professional Caricaturist" or a caricaturist who work in studio or gallery, never ever need to handle or facing such problem at all.

Roving Caricature Drawing

One of the common request for roving caricature drawing was during special event like Valentine day. We usually been arranged roving around the restaurant or the dining area, After the violin musician or guitarist play the music or song to the guests table, that will be our turn to entertain the guests.

Hence, as long as you are doing live caricature or portrait drawing for event, you are belonging to entertainer, you are required to serve the guests.

Sometimes,we roam around with stilt walkers, close magicians, roving balloonist at the same time, we work as group performing artists or entertainers; meanwhile we are here to create the fun atmosphere for the event, you definitely no longer made the crowd only comes to you because we are sharing the pride as group entertainers.

Roving Caricature Drawing for Event

Did roving caricature in a shopping center today. Talking about roving caricature drawing, it seems to be a trend nowadays.Thought many event organizers tried to make caricature drawing in a dynamic way, make this item as a lively fringe art as roving close up magician, roving balloonists, still walkers and so ford.Thought due to globalization reason and roving caricaturists was very common in oversea, it caused roving caricature drawing getting highly demand and popular in many Singapore's event as well.

Bangkok Trip

Just back from Thailand, Bangkok trip yesterday, and I was really enjoy this trip because it was my really first proper tour in Bangkok with friends.We just met the "Red Shirt" people seized some main road while we on the way to our hotel. We were quite scared but it is actually a peaceful new year party gathering for them and only happeded on last Sunday 9th Jan, one only, phew..!.There are some stalls selling red shirt, photos and food as well during this big gathering, we did not ever think about we are passing between them during this holiday occasion ;pMy first time taking "Tuk Tuk" Taxi,they can drive very fast and squeeze between the gabs of 2 vehicles to keep driving to the destination, you will feel a bit dangerous if you are first time taking it, but you will found it quite interesting after a while. Thought it was safer than taking "Motorcite" which is mean Motorcycle Taxi.
