Professional caricaturist for 19 years, I work with individuals, corporations, event planners and agencies. I confirm events beforehand, arrive on time and always act in a fun, friendly, professional manner. I also draw really nice, accurate cartoon portraits, I laugh with the sitter, not at them- I have heard too many people say they got a portrait that they hated, I want the sitter & client to keep and love the drawings! I draw "painless" caricatures at live events, I am not interested in hurting anyone's feelings, for corporate clients every interaction between yourself and customers should be a positive one, especially for the entertainment.
B.F.A. in Painting East Carolina University

What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 60 - 180 minutes
I work sitting at an easel so onlookers can watch the caricature appear in front of their eyes, and typically, laugh at the sitter, who doesn't get to see until the end. Depending on crowd size, I can draw faces only, or face body background scene. I always dress appropriately and am happy to wear theme hats or costumes (if provided).
2 chairs, normal lighting
Client to provide 2 chairs (total).
I have chairs if none available, enough light that you could read by it, or provide electricity I'll bring clip lights. I prefer not to be set up directly in front of large speakers when drawing.
Black & White caricatures, I use thick card stock, that is nice, heavyweight paper, and black artists' markers.
Heads only - about 20 per hour (varies)
Head/ body/ scene about 13 an hour ( varies )
