Frequently Asked Questions About Caricatures

  • How many caricatures can an artist do each hour?

    Our caricature artists can draw 12-15 faces per hour. If each person they are drawing requests to have their own individual caricature, they take slightly longer (around 12 faces per hour). If the people they are drawing are requesting to be drawn as couples, or in small groups, this process can go a little faster (up to 15 faces per hour). Our artists are always happy to draw individual caricatures, couples, or groups – whatever folks request! Also the time it takes for the next person or people to sit down can end up affecting how many faces our artists can fit into each hour.

  • What drawing materials are used for caricatures? What size paper do they draw on? Black and white or color?

    The majority of our artists use thick black markers on heavier paper. Paper sizes vary by artist, the most common being 9×12″ paper, 11×14″ paper, and 11×17″ paper. All artists come prepared for black-and-white caricature drawings unless otherwise requested. Color is cooler of course, but it takes twice as long! So black and white is standard, and they look fabulous either way. If color caricatures are requested (they must be requested upon booking), then artists can only cover half as many faces per hour as listed above.

  • How do people get their caricatures home safely?

    All artists bring clear protective plastic sleeves to place each finished drawing in. This allows folks to show off their drawings afterward around the party or event – and keeps them clean until they make it home safely. Caricatures are often put in a mat or frame and displayed on a wall for years of decoration and smiles, so your party or event is remembered for years to come!

  • How cartoony are caricatures? Also what are some other common uses for caricature drawings?

    Different artists on our professional team have different styles – no two artist’s work is alike! Some styles are more cartoony while other styles are more realistic. But rest assured that no matter which artist or artists serve at your event — they are the best of the best, and they always get rave reviews! Also, our clients use their caricatures for many different fun applications: the most common are for business cards and website profiles, for Christmas and holiday card images, or for unique and lasting gifts to give year-round.
