Uniquely Singapore by Sword-Dance Uniquely Singapore by Sword-Dance
Submission for my school's National Day concert programme booklet, in the style of graffiti--hopefully it gets selected! Will probably be submitting it as a postcard design.

Done with a lot of reference to "Singapore: the Encyclopaedia". No planning lines; inking took 4 hours. But I enjoyed it! :D

Hoho, Singapore's national colours: red and white! Though I think that's the case for a lot of countries xD

It's very hot, and there are buildings and roads everywhere. Also very small. You can get from one end of the country to the other in an hour.

nono
Mom is Chinese, Dad is Singaporean, I grew up in America, have American passport. I live in China now as an expat. It's confusing, right? LOL

Thanks! Singapore is an odd place, in the sense that it's the result of a deliberate push to expand and flourish. Everything seems jumbled together...but I suppose that's what makes us proudest.

Hahahaha! This was for National Day last year! And yes, I won; it was on my school's booklet cover :D

The shirt idea sounds good! I'll have to erase that "44 years" at the top right,though xD

I've only done one paper cutting in my life. It looks a little complex to do as a paper cutting, but maybe if you have enough patience, you could print it out and do it :D

This graffiti of yours looks like a rojak :)

I mean there is a mixture of the four race, malay chinese indian and eurasian.

Totaly awesome!

Can tell. Most people outside Singapore don't know what rojak is xD

Yay, thank you again!

design-fx Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2010
eh for your info, there is two types of rojak:

Chinese rojak: Contains youchakueh(sorry for wrong spelling) and black sauce

Indian Rojak: Contains asortment of fried friters and red sauce

So thats a definition of Rojak for those visitors in singapore!

Hope they enjoy both of these wonderful dishes :D

Hi there Sword Dance,

I am a local musician and I want you use part of your art work as my album cover.

I couldn't find your email that's why I'm contacting you here.

Is this art work free to use with the proper accreditation in the album?

Please contact me at Kornfactor@hotmail.com
