FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS – LIVE CARICATURES

Q- How long does it take to draw a caricature?

A- Traditional takes about 3-5 minutes per person. Digital 7-10 minutes per person.

Q-Are some people harder to draw?

A- No. But some people are more interesting and make a funnier drawing.

Q- What do I need to provide as I have you draw at my special event?

A- I will need a small area to set up in, about 5 to 8 feet, a comfortable chair for me and chairs for the guests who will be drawn. Good lighting or access to power. Please place me away from loud music if possible so I can better interact with guests.

A small table or extra chair to sit my bag on is appreciated if available. If not I have a small table I can bring, just let me know when you book.

Q- Do you offer caricature in full color?

A- For traditional I recommend black and white to get the most people done in the limited time I will be there. I do offer full color caricatures but they take longer per person and it is at a higher rate. Digital caricatures are available in Black and white and full color.

Q- How long does it take for you to set up? 

Usually about 5 minutes but I like to arrive about 15-20 minutes early to make sure the placement, lighting, space, etc. is good to go.

Q- How far will you travel? 

A- I am local in Kannapolis (Charlotte) NC area, but am willing to travel as needed. Travel fees will be added if outside of my local area. I have been flown as far as England to provide my Caricature services.

Q- Do you draw cartoon bodies? 

A- Yes, at clients request. I usually just draw head and shoulders for speed and efficiency. 

Q- What size paper do you use?

A- For traditional they are drawn on 11” x 17” paper. I usually have some 12 x 16 on hand as well to accommodate larger groups who want one drawn together.

Q- Is it extra to have my logo or slogan printed on the paper?

A- Yes, an extra charge will be added. Pricing will depend on what you want to add. I can add a logo, slogan, headline, or design an illustrated themed boarder or background to emphasize the theme of your event. 

Q- How long have you been drawing caricatures?

A- Since 1993 where it started as a summer job at a local amusement park.

Q- If I am having a big event and want to have multiple artists, can you recommend other artists?

A-  At your option I can either recommend others individually or let you write one check and let me handle hiring and paying everyone. I only hire artists I personally know and can vouch for their professionalism and work.
