Portraits After Dark is a monthly portrait event OIC have been running at MAAD since 2007! Think of it as a “community centre” for illustrators /artists of all skill levels to hangout, draw, know and inspire one another!
This event is only made possible because of the time / service contributed by busy illustrators/ friends / volunteers!
Come! Let’s make awesome drawings together!

Join us even if you don’t like drawing portraits ( We are illustrators! We draw ANYTHING- not just portraits! ):

How to join if you don’t draw

  • We need event volunteers
  • We need writers, interviewers, bloggers ( writing interviews, reviews and articles ) We need motion graphics, film, video makers
  • Email us with your short resume and full contact info at “oicsingapore@gmail.com”  subject : ” Count me in OIC I am a HELPER “

How to join if you illustrate

  • Keen to be part of the illustration community and work with others to make the scene even better and interesting!
  • Reasonably good / interesting illustration folio. ( of course we love good work but even more important is a friendliness, good attitude and humility. )
  • Loves to make friends and can work / collab with fellow artists.
  • We exercise a – “we contribute by sharing about others 1st policy”  Too often we have to turn away artists who are only interested in pimping their own work and nothing else.
  • Born or based in Singapore.
