FREQUENT ASKED QUESTIONS
Q. How long have you been drawing caricatures?
A. I have been drawing caricatures for private and corporate events since 2006. Read About US
for further information. Other artists I work with also have many years of professional experience.
Q. Why should I hire a digital caricature artist?
A. Live digital artists draw on digital tablets or IPads that are connected to a printer and a large LCD flat screen.
The LCD display makes a huge difference. Guests can see what's happening and watch the fun from farther
away and in larger groups, entertaining more people at once. The guests get to keep a highly personalized
souvenir print which will remind them of the event and then go online to download their sketch to share on social
networks or use as their profile images. A live digital art display just looks amazing and sets your venue apart
from anything the guests have seen, increasing foot traffic enormously and giving you a bigger return on
Q. Do I need to provide anything to the digital artists? What do they require from me?
A. The artists only require access to an electrical outlet, two chairs, a small table and ask to be indoors
or in a covered area so that we and the event guests can easily see the LCD screens, We bring everything else
we need to perform. There are no hidden charges for our standard services.
Q. How long does it take to create each drawing?
A. Approximately five to six minutes each to draw a face in color. So we average nine to ten faces per hour
at most events. Although artists can draw more faces per hour if just working in black and white usually
create fifteen to twenty faces per hour.
Q. What is required to book an artist?
A. After all the event details are settled and agreed upon, we will send you a detailed contract and ask for a
50% retainer to confirm the booking.
Q. Do you have a minimum amount of hours for a booking, or maximum?
A. Generally, we have a three hour minimum booking requirement but we have been known to make exceptions,
We charge $250 per hour for a two hour booking. We try to maintain ten hour daily maximum but we have no
overall maximum limit for a booking if it is spread out over multiple days. A 30 minute meal break is required
for shifts between 4.5-7 hours. A one hour meal break will be included for shifts of more than 7 hours.
Q. What does each guest walk away with?
A . Each guest receives a complimentary 4 x 6" glossy print in a clear plastic sleeve with an adhesive strip that
' can be attached to lanyard badges. As part of our standard service, we include your company logo or a
specialized message on each print. We also host the digital caricature files for you or your guests to download
after the event. Each caricature print will have the web address of where the guests can download their art or
share it to social networking sites, unless requested otherwise.
Q. Can you include a logo on each caricature? What about background?
A. Including a logo or the name of the event on each caricature is part of our standard service. There is no
additional charge to include any artwork or content that you provide but if you would like the artist to create
a custom background environment or cartoon body for the template , a studio fee will apply - usually $100
per custom background (example: A city skyline or body template where the guest appears to be using your
product). Please contact us for an exact quote.
Q. Is a caricature a drawing where the artist just accentuates on particular feature, like a nose?
A. Absolutely not. A good caricature is a drawing that observes your individual likeness and accentuates those traits which make you look like you. Some features get bigger, some smaller, closer together and farther apart.
There is no single formula applied to everybody. Each new face is a different challenge which is what makes it
interesting for the artist.

A. Checks, credit cards or Paypal. Details can be worked out when you contact us.

A. Our artists generally use 32" LCD displays on a floor or table stand. If you would like us to use your display
device, we are happy to do so.
Q. Can guests use their digital caricatures on their business cards?
A. The caricatures created at live events are for personal use and enjoyment only.
Guests who receive a live caricature are encouraged to share and post their artwork online to social media.
If anyone is interested in using a caricature for their business card or commercial advertisement, they may
commission the artist to create a studio quality caricature which will include all reproduction rights.
