I offer traditional and digital Caricatures. Depending on location there may be a gas charge. 2 hour minimum for traditional and digital.
Traditional: I typically draw black and white head and shoulders for events, as I draw 20 to 25 people per hour. I typically use 11x17 paper, but can use 8.5x11 paper.
Digital: It take about 10 minutes per person. I use a laptop/tablet to digitally draw, print it out on 4x6 photo paper and place in "badge" lanyard. I bring TV screen on a stand so the crowd can see. If you provide me with you company logo I can have it on template to print out on picture.
****Digital is great for getting attention at conventions!!!!!
Kids were obsessed with Mary's caricatures! For sure would hire her again!
Response from Caricatures by Mary:
Thank you so much!
Mary was really great at our art reception. She was professional, flexible and did an outstanding job with the caricatures. Our guests loved her. We would love to have her join in the future!
Response from Caricatures by Mary:
Thanks Sheela! I look forward to more events w/ you!

Gig Length: 120 - 480 minutes
What to Expect
I like to show up at least 15 min. early to set up, as it doesn't take me long to set up. If you have chairs I am even quicker, but I have my own chairs if you don't have chairs.
I typically use 3 chairs, 1 for me the other 2 for guest. I use easel, typically 11x17 20 lb white copy paper, black crayola markers (non-toxic). I roll up the paper and rubber band it. I am able to bring another easel w/ samples upon request.
I usually draw traditional black and white head and shoulders, as I can do 20 to 25 people hourly. Can do bodies (just about any body) and color, but they take me longer. For color I use color sticks (like the inside of a color pencil).
****If interested in Digital, please ask.
I have worked as a Caricature Artist at Sea World San Diego (1 year) and Universal Studios Hollywood (7 years) and now I do live private parties in the San Jose, CA area. I have a more realistic style. I show up on time and don't mess around.
Additional Booking Notes
If the event is at night and there is not adequate light, I can bring light. Please let me know if I should bring light.
