Yes and no. I’m a caricaturist in that I use heavy stylized lines to draw portraits. However I do not exaggerate features for comedic effect.
The problem there is that the subject is often the one not laughing. I don’t want my artwork to be a vehicle for embarrassment. Those pictures end up in the trash. I want my work to be put on display.
There are many advantages:
No. All portraits are hand drawn and colored. I do not use any programs to “vectorize” or otherwise take shortcuts to creating your portrait. This is art aided by technology, not technology produced art.
That depends on the location. At an outdoor event where there is no access to electricity, I print the pictures as 2×3 inch stickers on portable battery powered printers. At indoor events there is the option of larger prints. Either way however, models get a high resolution digital copy of their image sent via email which they are free to print as they wish.
Absolutely. And I will resize the picture to the appropriate dimensions for any social media or other online use free of charge.
I do. For these events the per person cost is much lower and can be further reduced by not offering printed portraits. This can be a good option as guest often prefer to not have to carry around a picture. With access to wi-fi, portraits can be shared on the spot and showed off via smartphone.
It’s easy. Drop me a line.
