This illustration is of a row of confectionery-coloured shophouses on a Singapore street. It also happens to be (ahem) done by yours truly. Sketching is a hobby and I have a shop on etsy.com where I have put up prints of my illustrations for sale (shameless plug). And this illustration has outsold the others and in fact, sales have gathered momentum in recent weeks.
It did set me thinking as to why this particular illustration. A clue came from one of my buyers who said “I was looking for something Singapore related to decorate my apartment in Helsinki and most of the ones I found were kind of generic in the sense of what a tourist would see Singapore as. This print however reminded me of the Singapore I remember growing up there!”
