2009 - A Far Cry from Pedestrian

By Studio Ensemble - http://studioensemble.com/


This illustration aims to capture the unique and lively environment of Orchard Road that we've come to know – modern, exciting, and bustling with activity.

We wanted to portray more than just one-off events held on Orchard Road. To show the vibrancy of the everyday life in the precinct, we drew inspiration from its mobile ice cream carts, perpetually-packed streets, iconic buildings, and the always-impressive light displays during festive seasons.

The human element also plays a big part in this piece. Shown outside of the malls, the crowd is exploring this famous street. It is a diverse group made up of people from all walks of life. They are the focus of this composition, through all the liveliness and character that they bring to the scene.

After all, Orchard Road's plethora of patrons is one of the reasons why it is so attractive.
