TAR University College Inspiration Workshop

Thank you Serene. Thank you Edwin. Who been support very much. Thank you students who attend to this workshop. Thank you Tunku Abdul Rahman University College giving this opportunity. Enews from TAR.

More photo of the day can view here. A lot of University College Malaysia not really into Caricature knowledge or any caricature class. So sad. I wonder why Malaysia art college not intend try to bring in caricature as a main subject course.
Yeah...this is what really happen in Malaysia. This is what really happen since I started caricature careen until now. Who cares? Who care actually is? Yeah...but I wouldn't stop to make a such awareness to public. I hope who read this can take some time to think. Think about how this situation happen in Malaysia. Instead we always said others country so good so nice. Eventually we our self, ours country have problem already. Never solve it until now.

Try bring up your thought. Try bring up yourself. Try to be yourself. This is important to know yourself better, in this cyberworld century now. Time changing. Aging. Things fast changing too. But believe yourself, be the one who have a right bright heart since born.

How to Charge Client for Your Caricature Work

Recently, ABC asking me, how do you price caricature commission work for your clients?
I asked ABC, are you the type of person, who work on confidence with your expertise. Or the type of person who work confidence just based on money number figuring offered?

Somehow this type of question is killing people. In office, staff don’t normally talk open salary amount to others colleague. Why? Because to avoid any conflict happen in between colleague. To avoid any jealousy/unequally feelings happen. Same situation happen in here.

Things to consider for your own way to make a charge:

1) How Confidence On Your Expertise.
You are full time. Or just doing freelance some sort of it. Doing/ drawing caricature easily without care any improvement. Without care the need and details of caricature. I just take any money whatever the customer offer. This count when you draw a caricature with your expertise. Having proper website, will count, how good the caricature artist put effort on it.

2) Value Based Pricing
  1. How Long To Finish A Order
    For Example: a client want a caricature order, you charge USD 100 per piece in 3 hours to complete, which would be reasonable price USD33 per hour. But if you charge USD 1000 for a piece of caricature in 3 hour to complete. Which would be USD330 per hour. Seem ridiculous.
  2. How Much Materials Will Cost
    The cost of materials. How much expenses you put on the drawing material. Even computer design software & computer hardware. Rental. Others expenses.

3) Don’t Be A Copy Cat
In this industrial, you have to be yourself. To be a unique person who would you represent your art in caricature. You have tell yourself, be a good caricature artist, you have to improve yourself. You have to be yourself. Not just simply copy others artist style. This will not going work for you in long term business environment. Honest to yourself always remember that. Do not steal others artist stuffs. This will make you suffer.

4) General Research Market Industrial
You may start to survey the industry market price. But this will only tell you the roughly figure in the market. You only get a general view of it. For me, there is no a standard price in this industrial. Every artist unique, using various drawing material, using various technique. So charge the price according yourself. Charge = experience + material + time

These all things that you need take into account when you quote a client. And do not simply answer/reply unknown email/sms/phone call. In case to protect yourself.

写blog,update social media,统统很吃时间。但是,如果你觉得,这是应该值得去做的,就应该做。别等。做给自己喜爱兴趣的自己。

SJK(C) Chung Hua Klang Fund Raising

Thank you Mr Bill & family, for all thing arrangement. Thank you Carisa, finally see you here. Thank you Madam Goh, Headmaster of SJK(C) Chung Hua. Thank you Yee & Christy for helping, without you I'm afraid I can't finish so well. Thank you Nancie, finally see you here too. Thank you everyone who love my caricature drawing. And great to be here. My last time for school fund raising charity was at SJK(C) Kwong Hon, Sungai Besi.

This fund raising is fully 100% donate to school. No even any profit sharing either. I'm grate can do a little help to school. I know I'm not a well known big business corporate person. I'm know this is caricature art, all based on hand drawing. Limitation in generate fund raising. Hand tired. But it's worth to help.
As I said early, different area, will have different level of people understanding caricature. Always happen. Great can do a little awareness to public same time. Below is the Appreciation Certification by SJK(C) Chung Hua, Klang. Thank you so much. Appreciate it very much.

If you, ask me what is different/ how do I feel, the SJK(C) Chung Hua fund raising compare with previous one. Sure the education of school. The discipline of parents. The kindness of people here. The environment of this area. The well arrangement from committee. And the help from my friends. That's why I always emphasizes to event business partner. Be a good co-ordinator/referrer. Or be a "Touch N Go" earning money profit agents. Because in future/now, co-operate in 2 way is important. No just we care how much we earn. The society, caring is. How we give the best service to the society. Make an effort to society.

Gift Caricature OL Boss

Thanks Crystal having me for no. 4th time order. To drawing a unique gift caricature for your lady boss. Yes. Only one produce. And only one in life time. No more redrawing. No more reproduce. Only one. Review back the no. 3rd original caricature artwork piece here.

Everything can be happen during drawing caricature for this lady. Electricity blackout. No light. No PC. No modem. All black. Nothing can do. Blind. And the funny thing is, only few unit of my place blackout. Included mine. What a black day for me. Yea, this kind of situation happen. So that's why no recommended to run urgent order. In order to make sure every piece draw in standard. And this is water coloring caricature.

Anyway, I personal love this lady boss so much. Haha. See what I had turn her to caricature with a smart casual office styling dress. Everyone have theirs own unique and beauty. Do not shy to cover. Do not shy to hide. Let it go. While in my field, drawing with free mind is important. You have to let go the border of yours. Then can only step forward to beyond.
