Five Things to Consider Before Hiring a Caricature Artist
If you are searching for a caricaturist in the Twin Cities area, you don’t have to look too hard because there are many of us. The number one quality that differentiates one artist from another is talent, and this is the first thing you should consider before hiring a caricaturist for your event.
Greg is an extremely motivated and hard working individual and has the awards to prove it. Do you want your guests to go home with a drawing that they will put on the fridge, or a treasured keepsake that they’ll proudly hang on the wall?
Some artists sketch out their drawings, erasing and re-sketching while their subject waits tirelessly for them to finish. Others speed through their drawings so quickly, you have to question how much of their subject’s likeness and personality they are really trying to capture.
Greg can draw 12 faces per hour, which is one face every 5 minutes. Through Greg’s experience and hard work, he has developed to a point where the quality of his work does not suffer for the speed at which he draws.
There are a lot of caricature artists out there who have only been drawing professionally for a short time. Doing a drawing with a crowd of people watching over your shoulder can be very intimidating and frightening for the novice artist.
Greg has been drawing live caricatures for over 10 years now, and thrives in that sort of environment. He has drawn caricatures of people from all walks of life in places such as New York, Miami, Las Vegas, Orlando and Iowa to name a few.
The first three qualities that have been listed above all relate to a caricaturists artistic abilities. The fourth quality has nothing to do with artistic ability, but is still very important. When you hire a caricaturist, you’re not just hiring someone to draw funny pictures, but also someone who is able to talk to and entertain your guests. The experience of getting a caricature should be just as enjoyable for the person sitting in front of the artist as it is for all the people standing behind the artist who get to watch and chuckle as their friend’s facial features are humorously exaggerated.
The more Greg shows his personality, the more his subjects will show theirs which makes capturing that person’s personality much easier, and capturing a person’s personality is a very important part to creating a good caricature. Greg has an energetic, outgoing personality and loves talking to people while he is drawing.
You’ll find that the four items listed above distinguish Greg from most other caricature artists in the country. What really sets him apart from everyone else, however, is his passion. Greg is very passionate about his work. More importantly for you, he is just as passionate about creating a fun, enjoyable atmosphere at every event he draws caricatures at. He loves seeing the looks on peoples faces when they see their drawing for the first time and strives to make sure that the guests at your event go home happy!
