After all, do you want your guests to go home with a drawing that they will bin, or a souvenir that they’ll proudly keep as a treasured memento of your event?
Caricature Entertainment is ENTERTAINMENT! People love to watch Joanne draw to see the magic of an artwork appearing so quickly.
Guests love the "Big Reveal!" The moment when they see themselves as the fun fantasy character they always wanted to be.
When you hire a caricaturist, you’re not just hiring someone to draw funny pictures, but also someone who is able to chat with your guests and put them at ease.
The experience should be just as enjoyable for those watching as it is to the person being drawn!
Joanne is perfectly at home chatting to the biggest guy or tiniest little baby.
Guests relax and Joanne is able to capture that special expression that makes that person who they are.
Especially if that feature is a big smile!
Joanne is often asked..Isn't it hard drawing so many people for so long?
Joanne is fascinated by our individual differences and quirks as human beings, and it is striving to capture the features that makes us unique.
The variations in features, character and expression are endlessly intriguing.
Joanne has often worked all day, six days a week for months but she still gets a kick out of who will be in her "hot seat" the next day!
WHAT TO EXPECT
All Joanne needs is a table for her character folios and two chairs in a well lit position. Keep some room for people to line up..and expect a big line up..and room for people to gather about to watch her draw.
Joanne has decided to not walk about drawing people as she believes their space is theirs and not to be interrupted . In her years of experience in this business she feels it works best for people to decide to come and see her in their own time.
Joanne's drawing table soon becomes a social hub with people meeting each other, laughing and chatting about their caricatures.
Working this way also means the drawings are far more polished and professional looking. In fact so popular are Joanne's live caricatures, many guests have framed their caricatures and have them proudly hung in their family homes.
Often guests want their photo taken with Joanne with their caricature and she and her caricatures are now all over Facebook!
The artwork is created using black Copic brush pens which are the best quality and give a sleek professional line.
Each caricature can be marked with your logo, date or event name..a lasting souvenir indeed.
