Silu Design Studio - Live Caricature

London

Every drawing is an adventure full of adrenaline in finding the balance, the beauty and the harmony. Add a live art experience to your event which you and your guests will remember - Corporate Events, Weddings, Private Parties, Fundraising Events When you book please keep in mind live caricature is a performance, so, there is no need for everybody to be drawn. Usually, not all the guest want a drawing. Some of your guests will enjoy watching. Two hours minimum per event is recommended. A Live caricature is a natural process and the maximum speed is acquired after the first few drawings. Depending on the complexity, the quickest drawings can take less than 3! minutes. Travel charges may apply for outside London events. I'm very proud to get the highest-rating from my clients. My style of drawing makes me very popular and attractive at the events where I'm invited. Often I'm the last entertainer who leaves the place as I always have people waiting for a drawing. Booking procedure Full payment is preferred if possible or if the date of your event is close to the booking date, for example, 1 month - 2 weeks beforehand. In this case, everything is set and there is nothing else you have to do. As well, less paperwork means more time for art. Otherwise, a deposit of £50 must be paid to secure the booking at a specified date and the price listed above. Full amount has to be paid no later than 3 days before the event date. If you require further flexibility or wish to discuss details, please get in touch. Event details Individual portraits on A4 size (200gsm paper) is the best choice for the clarity of details and speed. The portraits, ready to be framed, are delivered to your guests protected in transparent folders. I'm happy to draw multiple portraits, couples or a maximum of three portraits on the same sheet, but can take slightly longer. The average is 10 portraits/hour. The number of drawings per hour is related to the size of the gaps between drawings (usually, there are no gaps, my drawings are so popular as people waiting in a queue for one) and to the complexity of the models. For every 2 hours, I may need a short, roughly 10 min break. This is to be certain I keep the quality of the line high and I deliver only the best quality drawings. I always arrive at least 30 minutes / 1-hour earlier, to discuss every detail, to be sure we can set the event how is convenient for you and be in the best shape when the event starts. My aim is to make your guests happy by drawing as many portraits as possible. Working from a stationary position or mix and mingle with your guests? I'm at your party to make lots of drawings. I have, from time to time, requests to mingle with guests, but after the first drawing, usually I became so busy (stuck in the chair for hours) with lots of people waiting for a drawing as there is no reason and time for me to walk around. I enjoy drawing in any condition, seated or standing (See "Drawing people on London streets" project on Live Caricature page, below), still, my aim is to deliver only the best live art experiences and portraits to your guests. The best results in live caricature, the quality of drawings and speed, are achieved when we, me and my model, are seated. A table is helpful but is not really necessary if there is no space, but 2 chairs, is a minimum request for a good successful live caricature event which results in lots of happy guests. As well, the best portraits are made during the interaction with the model. Ignoring each other doesn't give the best results in art when it's about portraits. Live caricature is best with... 1. Decent lighting (indoors) 2. Two chairs normal size 3. A small table is helpful for my tools and to present some drawings for your guests to know what to expect. 4. Shaded area (outdoor), if possible. Sunlight can be very powerful and its reflection on paper makes the drawing process more challenging. Working with children I think there are no better models for cartoons than kids. I have developed a poignant way of drawing children and have received wonderful feedback. For more on this, please check my gallery and the certified review on Poptop UK Event Booking by Andrew Shires @ Polka Theatre - children’s theatre in Wimbledon. I know I'm doing something special when they don't leave without telling me: "I want to draw like you!". Weddings If you think you'll be too busy during your event to attend the live session and you book live caricature for your guests only, you can choose to have your caricature done (bride and groom) full colour from photos and framed, prior to or after your event Please let me know if you need this service to be included in your quote. Your logo & branding The artwork looks better by itself. Still, if it is important for your business, you can have your logo or other symbols at the bottom of the page, but it is preferable to keep it as simple as possible. I'll be happy to add stickers (preferable - you can choose the quality of printing etc.) provided by you at the bottom of every front page or, alternatively, you can have your logo printed, black & white, for free for a limited number of sheets, 10 per every hour of the event. Public Liability Insurance Insured. Why I prefer paper and markers versus digital caricature I used graphics software and computers to draw for 12 years and I can say there's nothing more expressive and spectacular for making art and especially live caricature than simple tools like markers and paper. The accuracy of how emotions are transposed in lines and the expressivity of a drawing is incomparable higher comparing with any digital tools of the moment. The drawing speed is higher, as well, that means more drawings for you. I will need from you 1. Your full name and address (not venue address) for the invoice. 2. The time and time frame when you want to have live caricature at your event. The time frame is flexible if you change your mind. 3. The event venue address. Previous clients who booked live caricature include: Royal Borough of Greenwich for Eltham Music Festival *** Cirque le Soir, London - One of the most exhilarating clubbing brands in the world *** The Flying Seagull Project for Salesforce Tower, London *** Polka Theatre, London - Children’s theatre in Wimbledon *** Under 1 Roof, London - Children's Play Centre *** The Greenwich Centre, London - Better

What do you love most about your job?

The joy that my art brings to my clients.
My portraits capture various, beautiful, genuine expressions and are not limited to the very highly used "smile". Even if these portraits can look relatively simple, there it's a very complex process of emotions and feelings that allow me to represent this kind of drawings. Every drawing is a new adventure full of adrenaline in finding the balance, the beauty and the harmony. There's no difference between my art and my personality.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I enjoy diversity

For this reason, drawing portraits is such a joyful experience! It makes me aware of beauty in the world and I choose to reveal it my way. Diversity is beautiful. Diversity is about how nature expresses its freedom. Be aware - these are not simple caricatures.
My drawings contain emotions.

Why should our clients choose you?

Why my portraits stand out

*Choose for your guests to feel flattered (not offended)!
Unlike classical caricature, my portraits reveal a pleasant appearance, not the ugliness and grotesque. The constant feedback I receive is: "I'm more beautiful in your drawing than in reality."

*All drawings are unique and unrepeatable.
Your guest will receive for free original artworks signed by the author (I have great respect for my art, I don't do anonymous artwork) NOT prints. The joy and spectacle in art and in live caricature come from simplicity, from having spectacular results using simple tools. Also from taking risks, permanent markers can't be edited or undone like the digital caricature.

*Quality of the line
Made with permanent markers (deep black), the artworks are defined by a clear, powerful line which generates a high black & white contrast. Unlike the drawings done in pencils or other media, are resistant (doesn't blend) and have a clean, professional look with no under layers.

*Motivation / Why I draw
Through my art, I try to reveal human beauty in a playful way. My drawings generate moments of joy and incorporate the emotion and energy of the moment. As part of your event, you sustain my artistic journey to continue. I'm also happy to support charities and fundraising events when I have the chance.
