What to Expect
A client of my services should expect professionalism, punctuality, and fun. This will expand from the event planner, to the hosts, to the guests. I always make it a point to engage my clients, make them feel comfortable and again have a lot of fun. Professionalism is very important to me as well. I am not the caricature artist that you will see wearing tattered jeans, a t-shirt and jacket. My supplies are well organized, and I strive to make sure not to take up too much space when possible, or work with the space given, as the main event is the most important thing going on. Communication is also very important to me as well. In order for things to go smoothly, I need to communicate with who I need to so that we can all be on the same page and things can go well. Of all these things that I am offering, quality is also very important to me. I draw in various styles and will do what I feel is best for each client and offer great quality artwork that should always match the quality of the event being held.
My name is Ian Walker. I am a freelance comic book artist and illustrator from Seaside CA, and now living here in Monterey Ca. I am an experienced caricature artist looking to expand my business to do select weekend parties and events all over the Central Coast. As a caricature artist, I will bring a fun and light atmosphere to the party. I'm a very social guy and like to bring humor to my work, while simultaneously creating simple caricatures that folks will love and never forget.
The caricatures that I do for guests will be simple B&W caricatures that are fun and memorable. I am also an intermediate Graphic Designer that is very experienced with Photoshop, as well as a high end printer. I am able to create special event materials for whatever is needed for an additional fee if that is requested. I do Save the Date items as well as specialty caricatures for the Wedding Party if necessary.
I am very easy to work with as long as the person I am with is respectful and fun also. I am available only on weekend days of Friday and Saturday. If booked in advance, I can possibly do some days during the week, however as mentioned, I need to be booked in advance.
Additional Booking Notes
Proficient in Photoshop, Sketchbook Pro, and computers.
Influences & Inspiration
My influences have been any and all things from the comic book world or fantasy realms. I like to think I have a very active imagination, and as a comic book writer, and illustrator, I love to entertain and engage people in any way that I can. I also enjoy living in Monterey. This place is a wonderful area to meet people from all over the world and get inspiration. Being a social butterfly is a must in this business, and since I am very social, doing caricatures has been a fun outlet in doing this.
