Paul Manning is a college graduate from Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). After his graduation in 2007 he started teaching in the the Baltimore city public school system, as well as with various local non-profits. In 2010 I was hired by a caricature and face-painting company called 'Goofy Faces'; who had a contract with the National Aquarium. Since that time I have worked for several special event companies including; Baltimore's Best LLC and Bubbles Prod. LLC. I am a face-painter, caricaturist and balloon twister. I have worked as such for about three years now and have done everything from corporate events to local private parties. Once again the name is Paul Manning...
Paul was part of a surprise proposal to my girlfriend. It was everything I wanted it to be and my lady was shocked and pleased. Paul was amazing, very professional & accommodating.
he was absent due to sickness, so i had someone else. it was ok but i would have love the one i booked first.

Gig Length: 60 - 480 minutes
What to Expect
Depending on what the client has demanded for a certain gig, I will be doing caricature drawings, face painting and/or balloon twisting. I give the client the option to construct their event as they please. Some clients have hired me for multiple hours with each hour dedicated to a separate craft. I also am willing to negotiate flat rates for types of situations. The number of caricatures that can be done in an hour is dependent on the number of subjects in a picture, whether or not the full body is pictured and also if color is used. Finally plastic sleeves for protecting the drawings can be provided upon request for an extra cost of $15.
I grew up in Baltimore in a very creative household. My grandmother was a teacher and my grand father was a bass player in a jazz band. Intriguing music and volumes of books were my entertainment in my household. I attended the Baltimore School of the Arts (BSA) in high school and then left Maryland shortly some time after for Chapel Hill, North Carolina. In Chapel Hill, I attended and graduated from East Chapel Hill high school. After high school I returned to Baltimore to attend MICA and eventually received a bachelors in General FIne Arts. My caricature and face-painting art exemplifies my steady hand, and line control. I have cartooning and portraiture experience from MICA which I use in my work. I recently have added balloon twisting to my arsenal. My rates are $100 hr with the option of sleeves and mixed specialty booking.
Additional Booking Notes
Tables and chairs are not provided for events. This is the client's responsibility. Also the number of people being drawn in a single picture, whether or not the picture is in color, as well as if the full bodies and a background are depicted dictate how many pictures can be done in a full hour. APPROXIMATELY: 10 single, B&W, neck and shoulder pics per hour. 6-8 single, full body/full color, pics per hour. 8 single, full body B&W pics per hour.
