Live Caricature - Amazing Quick Cute Portraits for Your Event | Silu Design Studio

London

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." 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. I'm very happy that I can draw so many people who enjoy and value my work. The 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. The average is 10 drawings/hour. I'm very proud to get the highest rating from my clients. Please, check my five stars reviews and more details on my website! Event details Individual portraits on A4 size (200gsm paper) is the best choice for the clarity of details and speed, and a higher speed results in more people having a portrait done. The portraits, ready to be framed, are delivered to your guests for free protected in transparent folders. I'm happy to draw multiple portraits, couples or a maximum of three portraits (occasionally - for events of 4-5 hours) on the same sheet, as well, but compositions are more complex and can be slightly slower. 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 arrive always at least 30 minutes / 1 hour earlier to discuss every detail and to be sure we can set up the event best way. My aim is to make your guests happy by drawing as many portraits as possible. Why I draw only from sitting Even if I enjoy drawing in any condition, seated or standing, my aim is to deliver only the best portraits and live art experiences to your guests. The best and most effective way of doing live caricature, the quality of drawings and speed, is from sitting. Walking around is not the best way of doing live caricature and is rarely necessary. My drawings are pretty popular and usually, I'm stuck in a chair for hours drawing people, while others wait for a drawing. So I can't, or there's no point to mix and mingle with your guest, as my goal is making your guest happy by doing as many drawings as possible. I have, from time to time, requests to mingle with guests, but after the first drawings, usually, I became so busy as there is no reason and time for me to walk around. A table is helpful but may not be 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. If there is no way for you to have at least two chairs at your event for live caricature, unfortunately, for technical reasons, I can't attend your event. For a successful live caricature event, we need 1. Decent lighting, in the drawing area, indoors. A place close to a window or a source of light is best. Indoor its a better environment for live caricature usually, not always, as ar fewer factors who interfere with the drawing process (wind, powerful sun, cold, humidity. 2. Two chairs normal size (three if I have to draw couples). 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. Sunlight can be very powerful and its reflection on paper makes the drawing process very challenging. Working with children Kids are amazing models for cartoons. They understand and take my work very seriously. :) 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!". 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 your event. 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. As I dedicate the full day to the event, the time frame is flexible, but please let me know in advance so I can fit it with my travel. 3. The event venue address. Previous clients who booked live caricature include: *** Mozilla - Firefox Browser *** Royal Borough of Greenwich for Eltham Music Festival *** Polka Theatre, London - Children’s theatre in Wimbledon *** Under 1 Roof, London - Children's Play Centre *** The Greenwich Centre, London - Better *** Cirque le Soir, London - One of the most exhilarating clubbing brands in the world *** The Flying Seagull Project for Salesforce Tower, London *** Carousel - Award-winning consumer PR and digital agency

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.
