It takes around a minute per person and I goof around and encourage guests to watch me draw the other guests. I bring a large, colorful sign with a timer so guests can time me- OR I can stroll around to where people sit and interact with them at their tables. I'm very friendly, ask a lot of questions and love to answer questions. Allowing people to watch me draw their friends and family is a big part of the show. To me it's more about entertaining everyone more than it is drawing everyone, even though almost always anyone that wants one gets one. Even with a VERY large crowd, usually the longe ... st waiting time is around 20 minutes. I'm very versatile and if needed, I can switch it up to draw bodies, draw digitally, do silhouettes, 5 minute speed portraits, scene sketching of an entire table or group of people and even paint a mural for guests to watch. All the time interacting with them and encouraging questions and answers and the focus is on the entertainment. I have a very fun job. ;)
I am the fastest caricature artist in the world (Officially won this award at the ISCA convention in 2016, Won Party Artist of the Year in 2015). I've been drawing since the late 80's. In the early 90's I started drawing in bars and restaurants for tips and learned quickly that the faster I drew the more money I could make. Naturally, I set my sites on drawing as fast as possible and learned to work the crowd. At some point it occurred to me that nobody else did anything close to this and I had found my niche. I am constantly challenging myself to improve my speed, likeness and skill at render ... ing as well as trying to find new ways to get people to smile and laugh. I have added a few new types of artistic novelty entertainment to my bag of tricks as well in 2015. I have written about my experiences and how do get started for the budding caricaturist that would like to learn and I have taught 2 other people to draw as quickly as I am. They can cover for me and join me at a booking if requested.

I travel often to do college events all over the USA. I can stroll around a loud, crowded room, with drunk people, in dim light, in bad/cold/hot weather, for long periods of time, etc.. I am VERY versitile and come well prepared and not afraid to try new things. Most of the events I am asked to do are cake compared to this. :)
What kinds of details do you want? I have MANY MANY references. You can view some of my wedding client's reviews on Gigmasters at www.Gigmasters.com/SpeedSketchers. I mostly do private parties but I have done some larger corporate things. If there's some particular type of event or referral, I can point you to where a relevant referral would be hosted online. I have several EPK's that are useful for this.
