Block Party is never the same with us adding to the booming laughter and crowds of Singaporeans from all walks of life.
We were greeted with enthusiam and curiosity as our caricaturist, Ruoshi, woo the crowds with her skills. It was so overwhelming that we forgot to take pictures till the party is over.
February is approaching which explains why we are drawing a lot of couples lately. A caricature drawing really is a good Valentine day gift. You will continue to enjoy it long after the roses has withered, the chocolate has melted or past its expiry date and what’s left of that posh candlelight dinner was just a fleeting memory… but you’ll still have this funny drawing on your wall to laugh at together and we wish your relationship last till old age and by that time this original piece of art could be worth millions so you can bequeath it to your descendants if your CPF don’t quite make it (sorry I got carried away, I’ve been eating expired chocolates it seems).
But be warned! Do not get a caricature gift if one or both of you lack the humility to laugh at your own appearance. This gift option is only for the cool people who can imagine funny ideas for an original gift. 😀
Wooahhh… before you get all excited about barging into our studio to demand for an on-the-spot treatment, please note that we draw from photographs and standard order is completed in 7 days. Off course we have other options so please call 6297 8313 to discuss with Ms Suhailah if you have any question.
The Marina Bay area was party central on new year eve. Its especially special celebration this year culminating with a full eight-minute firework celebrating the completion of the Marina Bay area development. The area is now a breathtaking sight of the bay area, Integrated Resort and the central business district.
The previous year we had only one artist performing. Due to outstanding response from the public two artists, Kamal and Ruoshi were engaged this time. The Esplanade wanted a fresh entertainment format and suggested caricature artists roaming at night. This gave us an opportunity to introduce our new set-up for roving at night. Our artists dressed in colourful outfit walked among the crowd and drew selectively. They had a customised clipboard designed for fast drawing at speed of up to 25 drawings per hour and hands-free movement when handing over the drawing. It has enough lights to illuminate the drawing board and subject. Not only that, they were accessorized with glow-in-the-dark lights to attract the crowd. With this new set-up, we could practically draw in total darkness and we did test it out that night by walking into dark areas. And our artist are able to draw standing, squatting, kneeling or seated on the floor or chair.
The set-up worked well outdoor and also indoors as we moved on later in the evening to draw guests at the VIP Lounge of the floating platform. This is the best job of the year as its fun and it ends just before midnight to party! Happy 2011 everyone and thank you for your support.
It was a night filled with new found confidence as the students of our first intake caricature class plastered the classroom walls with crazy caricature of each other on their last of eight weekly sessions. Mentored by the Mr. Kamal Dollah, founder of Cartoon.SG, this batch of students came from all walks of life and varying level of drawing proficiency yet they all improved their drawing in the end. This is a starter level programme and the focus is drilling to in the fundamentals of caricature drawing that is Likeness, Exaggeration and Humour.
