Hire me for your event.I specialize in quick 8”x10” black and white caricature faces that take 3 – 5 minutes each. I also do color caricatures as well, but for your event, they take more time. When I do caricatures, you can expect 12 –15 done per hour in black ink. I supply the board and bags for each piece of art.
My fee is $90 per hour. There is an additional travel fee of $40 to $125 for travel outside the Tri-County area. Tell me about your event and I will try to hit your budget, especially for multi-hour events.
Here is what folks who have hired me had to say…
“Joe was a big hit at our libraries’ grand opening! Kids lined up to get their caricatures drawn, and he is an entertaining guy as well!” --Dawn Smith, Germantown Hills library
“Joe was fantastic! He was easy to work with, brought everything he needed and had a long line the entire night. All guests, of all ages, were eager to get drawn and it added a nice touch to our wedding. Joe was very friendly and even agreed to stay over his scheduled time to draw the bride and I. --Matthew, groom
“Joe, thank you so much for coming to the Argenta & Oreana Libraries today. Your program was awesome!! The kids & adults really enjoyed it!! Thanks again.” --Carol Roberson, Argenta and Oreana Libraries
"Joe's work was a must have with the invited guests. I highly recommend his services to anyone who is interested in providing FUN to their special day". -Stephen A. Bill, Father of the Bride
I can draw your caricature / personal portrait as well. Email me a couple of pictures, and I can get started. The 8’x10” black and white is $30 including postage and handling. Color is $45. If you wish to have an 11”x14”, black and white is $50 and color is $75. My clients enjoy it when I add additional features related to that person’s life to make their portrait extra special. I can also do serious pencil and colored pencil portraits of you or your family.I will email you a proof of the art, and arrange for you to send payment before your art is delivered. You can expect to see your proof 3 to 5 working days after your pictures are received. Caricatures make great gifts. I also work art fairs and events throughout the year. I usually charge your attendees a nominal fee per caricature. If you are interested in any of my services, email me at email@example.com
