Booking A Caricature Artist? Here`s How To

(1) Don`t assume that all caricature artists have the same ability..... I have caricature artists contact me to ask me for my help, and advice on drawing live caricatures that can be found on the first page of google.
(2) Be aware that these same artists are also quoting for the same weddings, and events as I do...
(3) Ask to see footage of a caricature artists drawing live, when making your enquiry....
(4) You can also search for UK caricature artists drawing live on youtube.
(5) Make sure the artist you`re booking has plenty examples of their live work on their web site, with the people they have drawn holding their caricatures...... Reasons for an artists not having many examples on their web sites can be: Each caricature looks very similar, or that they have a low level of drawing skills, and find it hard to get a likeness.
(6) Be aware that there isn`t a governing body for the caricature industry.... to score artists on their ability for getting a good likeness, speed, reliability, and professionalism... Anyone can pick up a marker and say they`re a caricature artist.
(7) Never book with an artist that offers a low fee!!! Take this as a warning that a low fee means low quality....Don`t take the chance for your special day, or event..... I know of so many horror stories from couples, and businesses that did.
(8) If the artist you make your enquiry with isn`t available, ask them to recommend a good caricature artist.
(9) Always do your research before booking a caricature artist to avoid disappointment.
(10) Make sure you have a contract between you, and the artist.
