What to Expect
For the ON SITE SERVICE: I set up an easel, a small table, a chair, and my phone. I take a quick picture of you and then stick it to my easel. You are then free to move, watch me, or play with friends while I create an adorable, idealized cartoon likeness of you within 10 minutes. I can reasonably create 6-8 caricatures an hour. This is best for small intimate parties.
If you have an event with a LOT of people, and you don't want them waiting in line for a caricature, you can use the EXPRESS SERVICE! In the EXPRESS SERVICE, I will spend the hour taking pictures of everybody, or you can email me a batch of people and I can do all the Caricatures at home, and I'll deliver them to you in a timely manner! It takes me 2 weeks to turn around 50 Black & White Caricatures. For the EXPRESS SERVICE, I only charge $10 per caricature, plus $30 Photo & Travel Fee to drive to location and take the pictures myself. If YOU send me the photos, then you won't need to pay the Photo & Travel Fee.
When you commission a HIGH QUALITY CARICATURE, I'll ask you to email me good quality photos of the PERSON OR PET you want me to draw. I may message you to ask if you want certain props or other details you want included. It's first come, first served, but once I start the job, it takes me 1 day to email back a Black & White Caricature, and 3 days to email back a Full Color Caricature. You can then go to your favorite printing service to have the caricature printed and framed, put on a mug, t-shirt, or other gift item to share with a loved one. I can fit up to 4 people in a Caricature, and I'll give you a specific quote for those.
For the Painting Party, I offer small intimate sessions with no more than 20 people. I need you to provide tables, seating, and food for your guests. I do recommend a hard or tiled floor room with bright lighting for best results. I'll coordinate with you to discuss which painting you want to do, or if you want something special for a holiday theme or special occasion, let me know, and I'll make up something special and unique just for you! I'll arrive 30-60 min before the guests arrive and set up. I'll bring the aprons, painting supplies, and tablecloths. I'll clean up all the painting supplies and any spills. It'll be fun and easy, and I can't wait to see what you create!
I look forward to making treasured memories with you and your friends and family!
Drawing with Love,
I had the honor of being the caricature artist for the Fall Carnival at my children's school. As I set up my easel and markers, I thought what I offered was a simple amusement. Many of us in the Creator industry underestimates the impact of our own work. Even the industry we register under shows a bit of condescension to our craft as we are listed under Novelty, as if all our effort and skill that goes into our product may bring about brief entertainment, but is then discarded.
This event showed me how wrong that perception was.
As the children sat down in their adorable Halloween costumes, I noticed a strange nervousness with them. Some of the children started immediately apologizing for perceived flaws, and I flinched in pain for them. Even the parents noticed the impact of our appearance-based society on their children, and they had a quiet sadness to them. I remembered that caricatures usually exaggerate people's worst features, and sometimes injure delicate self-esteems of its clients.
I did NOT want to be that kind of caricature artist. I did NOT want them to see their portrait and wince.
So I pulled from my own experience as a child and as an animation artist, and drew them as I would want to be drawn, as a cartoon protagonist. I wanted them to see themselves as the star of their own show, heroes in their own life story. I drew them idealistically, compassionately, and with the same forethought and broad appeal that artists strive for in their own characters for books, shows, and movies.
The response was immediate. Their faces relaxed, and their eyes lit up with joy and wonder, as they've never dared to perceive themselves like this. The parents' faces also showed gratitude and joy that I didn't expect. They expected the worst, and I showed them their best. I showed the children the purity, beauty, and greatness all of us parents see in them.
I made many smiles that evening, and hopefully, when they feel insecure, I hope they look at my drawings and are reassured that their self-doubts are unfounded. I hope that they remember that they are beautiful and amazing.
Drawing with Love,
