Frequently Asked Questions
How many caricatures can you draw per hour?
Black and White Faces: around 25-30 people per hour (about 2 minutes per face)
Color Faces: around 10-12 people per hour (about 5 minutes per face)
How many face paints can you do an hour?
Simple cheek designs: 30-35 faces per hour
Full face designs: 15-20 faces per hour
If we email you a picture, can you draw a caricature from that?
Yes, the rates will be per person. A clear head shot photo with clear lighting will be the best photo to work from. Multiple photos also help. I can draw multiple people on one page even if they come from separate photos.
Do you do balloon twisting?
We discontinued our balloon twisting service, sorry for any inconvenience.
Can you stay longer if we need you to?
Yes, most of the time we are available to stay longer for an additional cost. We can work up to 8 hours if you want us to!
Do you do face painting?
Face paint has been discontinued for private events and are only done for festivals now because work schedules have been unpredictable which makes it difficult to schedule a face painter. It doesn't hurt to ask if you really want a face painter, you might be lucky if one is available.
Do you do full body painting?
No, only face painting and sometimes on arms.
Do you do clowns, dance, or music?
No, just caricatures and face painting.
Is there a deposit?
Nope. We will just mark you in our calendar and you're all set and pay on the day of the event. If you want to pay everything ahead of time, let me know.
Will you be willing to work for free and get free exposure?
Absolutely not, exposure won't pay the bills.
Are there any other artists besides Liz and Ruben to work at our special events?
We know a few artists that we can try asking. Just be aware that their rates will be different and may also have limited availability.
Where else can I find artists online?
