SketchfacesDC draws live caricatures at events

Classic Event Caricatures

Classic caricatures are a perennial crowd-pleaser! Artists draw guests with traditional medium: paper and pens. Guests line up behind the artist and watch their friends get drawn…then take home a caricature of themselves to remember the event. SketchFacesDC provides memorable entertainment and party favors for your guests at all kinds of events, including office parties, conventions, engagement parties, birthday parties, weddings, barmitzvahs, bridal showers, events for dog owners, street festivals, holiday gatherings, family reunions, church events, school/college events and more! It’s a lot of fun being drawn but caricatures will also entertain the watching crowd. Caricatures will appeal to all ages, children and adults alike.

  • Drawn with black marker with a little shading and 1-2 extra colors (we’ll color in a shirt or hair ribbon, for example) on 11×17 paper. Suitable for framing!
  • Quick portrait caricatures are just heads and shoulders cartoon portraits. These are our fastest – averaging about 10-12 people per hour
  • Full body caricatures include “little bodies” and some theme or activity (soccer! on the beach!) and take just a little longer per person – averaging about 8-9 people per hour
  • Full color caricatures include a full color palette and we’ll color everything, including skin and hair. These average about 6-7 people per hour.
  • 2-hour minimum booking with deposit
  • Pricing: between $125-$150 per hour per artist (depending on the date and location), with a 2-hour minimum booking
