I am an Irish, Dublin-based visual artist specialising in LIVE CARICATURE as it is great craic. I enjoy drawing and chatting to your guests as much as they enjoy getting to pose as VIP models (even if it is only for 8 minutes approx) ;). No need to fret over perfect hair and make-up, as my virtual cosmetic and reconstructive surgical skills can transform you entirely! Benefits can include lengthier lashes, gigantic smiles, bug sized eyeballs, rippling male muscles and busting bosoms. All of this and more whilst accurately maintaining your underlying natural beauty of course. However a disproportionately large sized head compared to your body is a common adverse side effect (always important to read the small print).
Free beers, cocktails or champagne with each drawing and the added benefit of zero calories! Any desired prop can be included in your caricature for that matter. Moon-sized diamond ring, pumpkin shaped carriage, or some action appropriate to your pastime, occupation or relationship (for dual pictures of couples or friends).
The humour in my caricature drawing is based more around the funny action / interaction of your miniaturised bodies rather than poking fun at your facial features. I am kind with my craft – You are all beautiful mutants 😉
I provide clear plastic covers to protect and display drawings on the night and for safe keeping as a take home gift.
So treat yourself and your guests to the finest of flattery with an aesthetic enhancing cartoonification by booking me for a quirky and fun service on your fantastical day. Kids and adults are equally thrilled, and my clients have always reported positive feedback.
My rate for Live Caricature Hire is
€60/hr, with a minimum of 2hrs up to maximum of 8hrs. Travel expenses may be incurred for venues outside of Dublin.
Another great gift to consider ordering is a
Pre-Prepared DETAILED CARICATURE from a PHOTOGRAPH of the romantic couple. This can be:
1) classically Framed behind glass,
2) centered and mounted to a large surrounding Signing Board for guests to write dedications upon, or
3) used as the image for Wedding Invites.
Detailed caricatures can contain a great deal of character, history, and humour. I work closely with clients to capture as much of the couple’s personality as possible. Brainstorming on creative designs is part of the fun (or you can easily leave it all up to my experience) and rest assured that I will put my very best artistic sheen on top.
Prices vary depending on the level of detail requested – Line, Black & White, Colour etc. Please contact me directly for a tailored quote.
