I am Vicki of Caricatures by Vicki and I would love to come add a special creative spark to your party. The guests love having their fun, flattering caricatures done and enjoy showing it to their friends and family. Every personalized caricature (color or b/w), is a great conversation piece and makes the perfect momento of your party or event. I have 50 choices of different hobbies sports and cartoon characters to pick from where the bodies are done ahead which give them a tighter look like they were created in the studio or they can be done on blank white paper. I also offer custom party theme backgrounds.
Call for more info and prices and I will answer any questions you may have.
We hired Vicki for our daughter's 5th birthday party. We wanted her to do caricatures of 9 kids and about 18 adults in color, and paint tiny elements like flowers, animals on kids faces or hands (not full face painting). Vicki said that she would need four hours to complete that. It was an hour more than we needed since we had other entertainment planned but agreed since caricatures were supposed to be party favors. In over 4,5 hours time Vicky only painted small characters on kids hands, did caricatures for 8 kids in color using pre-drawn character bodies and just adding kids faces to them. And she also did caricatures for 7 adults in black and white (there was no way she could do color even for those). Basically in more time than we agreed upon she did not finish even half of her job!! She was just too slow!! And caricatures that she did do, had no resemblance to people whatsoever. Don't know if she is able to do them at all. I called Vicki the next day saying how extremely unhappy i was, since she practically ruined the party we had to schedule everything around her and yet guests left without party favors. So she agreed to finish her job so that we can actually gve our guests their caricatures and we told our guests that they would get theirs. After trying to get in touch with Vicki for over a month, i was finally able to reach her and she asked to give her couple more days and that she would call to let me know when to pick up the ready caricatures. Needless to say that she has not responded to the emails and phone calls ever since. So, if you want to ruin somebody's big day Vicki Becker is definetly your person, otherwise she is absolutely incompetent in her job!!!!!!!!!!!

What to Expect
An audience member who gets their caricature done generally gets so excited thy jum up with it and run to share it with friends and family. Others are entertained seeing me draw carticatures that are cheerful, flattering and really look like the people I render. They love seeing how they are done. when rendered in color they are drawn with a black marker first and them colored in with pastels. When rendered in black and white they are shaded with other markers in greys. Having over 50 choices to choose from right off the bat is exciting because the members can flip through a book to see what they will look like when done. Some people rather have a drawing done to their specifications on white paper and like the surprise element. Whatever their fancy our communicative interaction as well as being drawn are a very joyous experience!
