Turn my husband into a Samurai

A broadcast journalist who interviewed Kamal during his caricature graffiti performance at the Esplanade during NDP08 ordered a caricature as birthday gift for her husband. He is probably a fan of Manga comics or a Japanophile. Either way, we made him into a fierce Samurai warrior by our standards.

A true Samurai warrior carries 2 swords. One long and a short one to redeem one's honour in defeat.

Roaming Caricaturist at Esplanade on National Day

Kamal did a performance art project in conjunction with Singapore’s National Day. A large mural was created by drawing ‘live’ caricatures of people from all walks of life at the Esplanade on two weekends before the big day. Forty three faces to commemorate Singapore’s 43rd birthday was spray painted graffiti style onto the glass entrance. On National Day itself Kamal roamed the bay area and drew caricatures for free. He drew at random and roam about so as not to allow a queue to form.
