Laughter is one of the largest of all icebreakers and with a caricaturist, they have the very unique flavour to any corporate event. They have the amazing ability to amuse your guests by not only getting them to laugh at each other and themselves.
A good caricaturist will also be able break down the boundaries and can mix both ends of the spectrum together, young and old all at once. The caricaturist will generally fit in alongside a show agency act such as an illusionist or magician who can not only make use of a large stage setting, but can also offer table entertainment to guests giving them that personal experience. Sometimes it might be better to have a caricaturist one part of a particular venue so as the people are able to come along and be drawn if they so choose. Caricaturists commonly work between three to four hours, depending the size and amount interest at your corporate event.
It is very easy to book a caricaturist direct from an entertainment agency or through and event planner as they come fairly “self-contained”, in no need of any electrical equipment and little, if any, space in which to work.
There are a few things to be aware of when booking a caricaturist for your private or corporate event. Have a sense of humour but DON’T make them work in dark! Be very wary of caricaturists who place too much emphasis in the amount of drawing they would produce as the quality is likely to take a hit. It is more sensible to hire a person who will take the necessary time both to produce good sketches (which will be the lasting memory of your event) and to talk with some of your guests. Most caricaturists are willing to do some drawings from photos which make excellent and surprising presents.
Being a caricaturist can be a full-time job working for an artistic agency, entertainment agency or he or she can freelance and work in one-off projects corporate events. As a full-timer, the job entails working in advertising companies as well in newspapers. The point of a caricature can range from a snide remark to overwhelming praise to plain and simple fun. Nowadays, caricaturists are also hired at all kinds of events such as children’s birthday parties, weddings and other private functions. Not only do they provide some well-loved light hearted entertainment, they can also act as fillers between events at functions.
Caricaturists are talented and exceptional artists and to go further as a caricaturist, the person needs to practice a tremendous lot, possess a unique skill set that sets their demand in society and needs to market his or her ability such that people get to know him or her.
By far and away this unrivalled talent provides your guests and you with getting laughter out of people as well as the ability to look at themselves in a different light. Nothing quite brings a new perspective than your very own caricaturist picture.
