What are Live Caricatures?

Live Caricatures are quick black & white cartoon portraits that are drawn at A3 or A4 size, on-the-spot, within just 5 to 7 minutes per caricature to entertain your guests! From Corporate Functions to Private Parties, Live Caricatures are a great way to break the ice and get your guests talking and laughing. Scroll to the bottom of the page for testimonials from past clients.

What sort of event would be appropriate for a Caricaturist?

Anything from Corporate Functions • Weddings Conferences • Expos and Conventions • Cocktail Parties • Christmas Parties • Product Launches Going-Away Parties • Birthday Parties • Bar Mitzvahs to Christmas Parties.

How much do you charge?

The standard rate is USD$110 p/hour. (Minimum 2 hours booking Friday-Sunday. Special day rates apply for weddings & conferences.) Payment can be made via EFT, Credit Card, or Cash. An invoice will be sent after the booking. Digital Caricatures are priced at USD$220 p/hour.

Do I have to supply anything?

All materials are already supplied! All I require are two chairs, (one for myself and another for the person being drawn) in a well-lit smoke-free area. This way, people can watch me drawing over my shoulder, also allowing for people to line up to have their caricature drawn. If you have a company logo you would like printed on the paper, you can email it through once your booking is confirmed.

Do you have Public Liability Insurance?

Absolutely! Any professional Live Caricaturist should have Public Liability Insurance. I’ve been insured for full cover since 2003.

Can you draw couples?

Yes! I can draw up to three people on the one page – I can even include your family pet if you like!

I love the caricature Jason drew for me, and my partner does too. it went straight to the pool room! Plus it is far better than one I had done in London a couple of years back. Awesome!
