Helpful Articles from Professional Minnetonka Caricaturists

Caricaturist hirers beware of these tricks! All Events How To / Instructional

Caricature artists can be great fun at events--IF the artist is a good performer as well as a good draw-er. Many artists are very shy and introverted and not good at entertaining. Many are good technicians but much too slow for an event.

Almost all will show you lovely, even mouth-watering, eyeball-popping works of art and dazzling videos as "samples" of their talents. Quite often, unfortunately, these are totally deceptive and do not give you an honest or realistic clue of what they will actually be able to do for you at an event.

The main trick they use is showing caricatures drawn at retail concessions, not at events. At fairs, theme parks, malls, where they are selling one caricature at a time, they can take a lot more time and put a lot more work into the caricature than they can ever do at an event. It is a totally different kind of caricature, much more finished looking, more detailed, "tighter."

A related trick is using paintings or airbrushed drawings done in the studio. Even more deceptive. These take hours to complete, and they have the chance to work on a piece over and over to get it just perfect. This has nothing to do with what they should be showing for samples for events.

Finally, the video. A video of caricaturing should be shot on location at an actual event, not in a studio or retail stand. And it must be un-edited. No fast cuts, no special music, no sped-up footage, no "Time lapse." These tricks are used by almost every caricaturist I've ever seen!

Video is the best proof of caricaturists' claims of speed and quality. If they say they can draw 12 people an hour but have no video, assume they are better at exaggerating numbers than they are at exaggerating people's noses!

For still photos, insist on photos done only at actual live events, and which show the person who was drawn next to the drawing.

Very few of us artists are true caricaturists. There are many desperate out-of-work illustrators and portrait artists and even artists from fields totally unrelated to drawing faces who are horning in on the art form and the profession. You can easily get a very good artist who is very bad at caricaturing, especially at events, which requires a very special set of talents and skills. Hourly rates that seem low may actually be much higher because of how slow they are, even when the work is pretty good. Think about your event, and what you really will need to make it a success!
