The were doing quality and nice mini T-shirt name making by airbrush in the event.mini T-shirt name making by airbrush which mean using airbrush to spray your name on the mini T-shirt and let you take home as souvenir.

Usually in such event I having high chances to met many tall guests in the event as well; there are a way to do silhouette cutting for them to ensure the scale of the portrait silhouette cutting is still in the right proportion ;p

Silhouette Cutting in Dinner and Dance

Did silhouette cutting for a dinner and dance in Fairmont Hotel yesterday.eat to meet the nice guests in the event.Usually, the speed of a professional silhouette artist should be able to produce about 40 pieces side profile cutting within an hour's booking.
My "One cut 2 pieces" silhouette artwork with one of the guest.In an event with crowded with people, any of the professional silhouette cutting artist should produce the amount of at least 30 pieces cutting and should try to be in good quality. As I always said, due to globalization, we should always improve or maintain our skills, because more and more people had been traveling often and had came across silhouette artists in different countries; if you think you can simply doing the artwork anyhow, it only spoiling your reputation, because many guests know what standard you are because they had seen it in other countries.

The Entertaining of Silhouette Cutting

After 10 years doing silhouette cutting, I found that, doing silhouette cutting is like doing stage performance, but this stage are really small just withing 1 meter - 2 meters area that surrounding you.Why I say like that? Look, since we had surrounding by the crowd, then we have to do our best. Do you realized the attractive of this art was we can just cut out a guest's side profile without drawing and everyone was was keen to know why we can do it without pre-draw the guest's side profile but just cut out a very look alike portrait silhouette, technically, skill involved actually.

Since such interest curiousness from the crowd, as a silhouette artist, in my view, we should make it as a performance to increase the entertaining level while we at work, just like a magician, like a dancer, like a singer that impress our guests.

"I am not the best, but I always try my best", this is my concept while I at work, it always help my maintain my artistic level and quality of my work in certain standard.

We should always in the right mood, enthusiastic attitude and right (or high) morale while we at work, hence we sure can produce nice and professional artworks.

The Quantity of Silhouette Cutting within an Hour's Event booking

As a professional Silhouette Cutting, I would say, in an hour's booking we can be produce average about 40 pieces of silhouettes which as large as our palm size.

Basically, a standard palm size portrait silhouette can produce within a minutes, meanwhile, exclude the time taken for us to put the artwork in plastic bag and the time spend in guiding the guest to pose correctly.

I don's see any reason for a silhouette artist require more than a minutes to produce a standard palm size non complex shape portrait silhouette.

Those who produce less than 30 pieces silhouette in an hour's event booking, they either apprentice or they are taking it for granted to do it slowly to kill the booking time and try to earn easy money.

Singapore is a branded world class great country, hence, as a professional, we should always maintain our high standard for our artwork, both quality and quantity.

How long do you need to produce a cutting in this shape, which in a mobile phone size?

The Quality and Quantity of the Silhouette Cutting for Event's Booking

As a professional Portrait Silhouette Artist, a silhouette to be produce is usually done within a minute in a A6 paper (a quarter size of A4, or it look similar to our palm size), plus the time we put the artworks to the standard plastic bag with the background, it will be average 40 pieces artwork can be produced within an hour's booking.

Any artist who only produce 7 pieces silhouette cutting or much lesser than at least 30 pieces cutting within an hour's event booking in a big crowd's event, that mean they are fake artist or either purposely do it super slow to kill the booking time.This quantity standard, not set by me, is the feedback from many guests and clients that having such demand.

Due to people traveled to many countries easily nowadays, there are more and more people know how to judge our artworks.
