A live caricature artist makes a fun and exciting addition to any event. I have been drawing live caricatures professionally for 17 years, I draw 20 faces per hour in black and white and I conduct myself with a fun, approachable, professional attitude guaranteed to keep each of your guests comfortable and entertained. Not only do I entertain a crowd small or large while drawing, each of my subjects walks away with a one of a kind souvenir from your event with memories that will last a lifetime.
I only wish I’d booked him for a longer period of time! He was incredibly kind and my guests absolutely loved it!
Response from Live Caricatures by Jared:
Thank you Jessica! Your friends and family where delightful, I'm happy to have been there!
Jared was phenomenal ! He showed up on time, was patient and kind to the guests. He did excellent depictions of each guest. Could not have been nicer, very humble guy ! We will surely use him for other events.
We had a wonderful experience with Jared at our dinner party. It was a formal event involving about 60 high school students. He was interactive Charming and very professional throughout the whole event. He even stayed longer than he was supposed to in order to make sure that everyone was able to participate. I would highly recommend him for any event that you have planned.
Jared was on time and efficient! He drew 40 people in two hours and all our guests loved him. Watching him work was a real pleasure for everyone, his sketches where funny without being insulting and they truly looked like all of the guests. Jared even stayed a few minutes extra to make sure everyone was taken care of. I would readily recommend Jared to anyone in need of quality entertainment!

Thank you so much Alan!
Jared was a wonderful addition to our party and our guests loved being drawn throughout the night! He took special requests from the kids and some of our shyer guests too and drew cartoons and cute stuff or really almost anything you could think of. A really unique experience that elevated the night! We will definitely hire him again for our next party!
Jared was definitely a hit at our wedding a few weeks back. Most people couldn't believe we had a caricature artist at our reception, and they took full advantage of the unique experience all night. Jared can not only draw his caricatures quickly but he does an excellent job at it! We chose him above the rest because of his comical and over expressive style which makes the finish product both memorable and hilarious. He showed up on time, setup with little space needed, and would not leave until we got our couple drawing done, which we love by the way. Thanks for putting the perfect touch of entertainment on our special day Jared! I would highly recommend Jared Layser for any weddings or special events.
On-time and entertaining.. our guests loved him..
The guests at our party were all very impressed with Jared. The crowd was a mix of toddlers and kids and he did a great job considering they don't sit still at all. He came on time and worked efficiently to make sure everyone was accommodated. Having a caricature to take home was a unique party favor that all of the guests enjoyed. I would definitely recommend Jared and consider him for future events.
I booked Jared to come out for my 30th birthday party and my guests loved having caricatures drawn of themselves. Working with Jared before the event was super easy, he came right on time, was really flexible with where he sat, and had a smile on his face throughout the event. His drawings are fun and unique, and he did them really quickly! I asked him to do black and white drawings since I had so many guests, and they all came out great. I'm so glad I had him join the party - he added an extra element that really made the event special. Thanks for coming out, Jared! I'd love to book you for any other future events that come up :)
Price Range: $100 dollars per hour
What to Expect
I arrive before the start of your event, giving myself enough time to setup and prepare for the occasion. I typically draw in black and white when working at private events, and can easily draw no less than 20 faces per hour.
I began my career in Caricature art at the age of 16, drawing as an apprentice at HersheyPark in central Pennsylvania. In 2010 I co founded a company which furnishes high quality caricatures at some of the largest fairs and outdoor festivals in the country. After extensive travel all across America I settled down in the triangle area and have committed full time to commissioned art and private events.
