I had a thoroughly enjoyable evening making custom linocut portraits at MAAD last Friday. The crowd was awesome even though it was a wet night!
Got my first customer, a Mexican tourist, right after I set up my table in the museum!
Next up was a young man, a Singaporean. It's always nice to have the support from a fellow countryman! Behind the young man was a big screen showing images from previous MAAD events and I happened to catch my friend MMohawk, the mohawk specialist, by chance!
Then a young lady stopped by and commissioned a portrait for her aunt, whose birthday is just a few days away. How sweet of her!
Before I was aware of it, the crowd was getting bigger and the night was almost over. It was a pity I was not able to accept everyone's request due to the time limit, but I managed to accept a few more commissions that I would do at home and then deliver the finished jobs on another day.
As I was writing this blog post, I had just finished drawing these two portraits for a couple who were patient enough to wait for their prints to be done over the weekend. Really awesome couple whom I enjoyed chatting with and having their portraits drawn!
Just when I decided I had my last customer for the night, a Caucasian man came running to my table and persuaded me to take on one last job before I closed shop. He is from Scotland and a fellow participant and a regular at MAAD, so I was just happy to take him on. He was so pleased when he saw his portrait being rolled out from my table-top press that I felt so glad it made me forget all about my tiredness.
To sum it up, I would say this was my best MAAD ever! Before I sign off, here's a sneak peek of me as a MAADman surrounded by a group of curious onlookers.

We were back at MAAD on September 9! This time round, we had our little booth set up outside the venue (Red Dot Museum, Singapore). By the end of the night, we had sold out most of the items we brought down and were left with an almost empty showcase!
