What CartoonVegas does at Events
I’ve always had trouble categorizing live caricatures. That’s because we do two things:
(1) Entertainment. An artist at a party will always have people clustered around, watching the drawing take shape. There’s something mesmerizing in art that happens really fast. We don’t do a lot of underdrawing or preparation, and we draw as fast as we can, so your guests can watch their friends come to life on the page in five minutes or less. It’s an interesting activity to watch if you don’t know the person in the hot seat, but if your best friend or your own dad is the subject, it will be the funniest thing you’ve ever seen. Age doesn’t matter. At kids’ parties and 50th wedding anniversaries alike, a crowd always gathers around the artist.
(2) Souveneirs. An artist at your party will generate dozens of keepsakes for your guests. People like pictures of themselves and their friends, and they already have plenty of photos. The caricatures that are generated in one night will go on cracking people up for years. They last a long time. I’ve seen caricatures of grandmothers and grandfathers that families are holding onto like heirlooms.
And the person in the drawing always remembers where they got it. When a guest tells me they’ve had a caricature done before, I always ask where, and they always know. A company party five years ago that would have been forgotten stays in their heads. The strange experience of being drawn, then the reminder of the cartoon itself, serves as a memory anchor. It’s rare for me that a person can’t remember their drawing location.
