Caricature event hire Old school markers from speed to standard caricatures this page explains it more.
Speed caricatures are best suited for large events, I use less pens and markers and don't use a grey wash
allowing me to do the caricature in less time, generally in around 3 mins for each one drawn on A4-A3 copy board.
Standard caricatures are the most popular and will take me around 6 mins to complete a good caricature using
a series of markers then finishing the cartoon with a a few different shades of a grey wash over the caricature.
Both forms of caricatures are done head to chest, but I will do full body with their interest on demand, but these
caricatures will take longer, allow 8 mins for full body caricatures, all caricatures are fitted into plastic sleeves.

Frequently Asked Questions????
Question-Do you do singles to groups?
Answer-I will draw what you want, but groups caricatures will need larger drawing paper.
Please advise if you want groups drawn-as a rule A3 is default drawing size and is easy to carry around at events.
It's far easier drawing one on one or couples-this is far quicker.

Answer- I do any type of events from Weddings to corporate events Kids birthday parties.
Christmas parties-private house parties, it doesn't bother me.

Answer-Speedy caricatures I can do in 2-3 min. or standard caricatures 4-6 min. the ipad around 6-8 mins.

or simply knock them out as well, it's best to call me to discuss what best will suit your event.

For best results standard caricatures are the best. Speed caricatures are best for large events.

I do two hours as well but please ask me about this option.

Answer-I draw both, it really comes down to the discussions between me and the client,
in most cases though we go with just head to chest as it is quicker. But it's your choice.

Answer-Both are perfect forms of mediums for caricatures and both produce good work,
but as a rule ipad caricature will take longer to do because of the colour work.
Ipad caricatures can be displayed on screens etc. ipad are popular for trade shows.

Answer-I supply all my paper [200gsm or thicker] pens and markers, plastic sleeves to
place the caricatures in, with the ipad I supply printers, photographic paper, protection sleeves

Question-Do you work longer than your hired time?
Answer-I really like to sort my times out and fees prior to the event, if we both think there is
an option for another hour we can have this set aside, and use the extra hour if needed.
It's important to respect that once the allocated time is up, please allow me to
pack up and go home. Let's face it no one likes working for nothing.
