On-the-spot likenesses in minutes! We create a stir as you watch faces emerge from seemingly random scribbles. Up to 10 pencils at a time and drawing with both hands, these keepsakes enliven a crowd.
We work independently and concurrently to double the drawings in an hour. At times double teaming a piece.

This is the first and certainly not the last time we will offer caricatures during our annual picnic for Multiple Sclerosis clients and their family members. On top of being skilled artists Joseph and Lisa were very warm, patient and kind. We certainly would hire them again and encourage you to do the same.
Response from Beyond Caricatures:
Thank you so much for the kind review. We will be happy to attend next year's party. We also had a wonderful time.
It's really fun to find out how you look in a FaceScapes drawing. Not a typical sidewalk sketch portrait, but an original drawing of you. Joseph and Lisa are a lot of fun to sit for.
First time ever being drawn and it was seriously the coolest experience ever! Can’t wait to have my kids done.

What to Expect
Either Lisa or Joseph (or both) will draw fast portraits of your guests as others can watch their friends emerge from from the layers of marks created by multiple multi-media tools - using both hands - simultaneously. These drawings take about 6 minutes.
Either an individual on a page or combine faces on a single page, as requested frequently by couples and parents. Every drawing is a gift to your guests.
We dress as you prefer from gussied business professionals to the comfort of tennis shoes.
Self-contained, we bring our own tables, easels and lights.
Lisa and Joseph have drawn people since childhood. Schoolmates, teachers, bosses, coworkers and passengers on public transportation have given them countless opportunities to capture someone's likeness.
After attending Hipbone Studio in east Portland for years, they finally met and their favorite activities are to draw together and participate with Creative Arts Community.
Additional Booking Notes
We bring our own lights and tools. Nothing technical required at the site.

Influences & Inspiration
The casual observation of anyone's face influences us to find the unique shapes that are the essence of one's likeness. We have been influenced by our many teachers, combining many techniques into each
drawing or painting.
Other artists also influenced our talents and interests.
