We start from your photos and theme. A pencil draft is produced which you critique and comment on. Upon receiving your changes we redraw the image according to your feedback. You critique the new draft and approve or request new changes. We repeat these steps in two rounds of changes. Additional changes after the two rounds are billed on an hourly basis.
Once you are happy with the rough draft we produce the complete artwork in ink and paint using quality paints and permanent inks. The artwork is produced on acid free cotton base museum quality art boards. Voila. Your first experience as an art director was a success!
Other than being a solid form of entertainment for all age groups, the attendees take an original piece of art with them. Our live party caricatures are often framed and remain in offices and homes for years. Impress your guests by hiring us to draw them at your function, event or party.
