Hiring an Event Caricature Artist Through Goofy Faces
If you’ve never hired an Event Caricature Artist for a party or event, you may not know exactly how to go about it. Here, we’re answering the typical questions we get from customers who hire our artists for bridal showers, bachelor/bachelorette parties, kid’s birthday parties, corporate events and more.
What kinds of caricature art can I choose from?
At Goofy Faces, we have several offerings for event caricature. For a more traditional approach, consider having a few artists draw black & white or color caricatures on card stock. For something unique, consider Caricature Coasters. They are smaller and quicker black & white drawings on 4” x 4” thick cardboard coasters. Or, go high-tech and hire an eSketch™ artist, who will work on a digital tablet with a large color monitor where guests can watch the work come to life. Full color prints are provided for each guest!
Can I get an event caricature artist in any city in the U.S. through Goofy Faces?
We have artists in most major markets throughout the United States. So if your party is in Miami or Memphis, Detroit or Dallas, we probably have someone nearby. Simply plug in your zip code on our Book an Artist page to find an artist near you.
How many event caricature artists should I hire for my party?
That depends on how many guests you will have at your event and how long it will last. You can count on about 60% of guests wanting to have their caricature drawn. Our artists average between 10 and 15 B&W drawings per hour (one person per drawing), or 5 to 7 color drawings per hour.
Here’s an example for a wedding reception:
To do some quick math, if you have 200 guests, 60% of them are getting drawn and the event lasts for 3 hours.
200 guests x 60% = 120 black and white drawings
120 drawings / 10 drawings per hour = 12 hours
12 hours / 3 hours = 4 artists
In this case, we would recommend you hire 4 artists to ensure there is plenty of time to cover the guests who would like a souvenir drawing from your party.
