Cute Caricatures of You & Your Guests signed by Silu

My portraits reveal a pleasant appearance not the ugliness and grotesque, the constant feedback I get: I'm prettier in your drawing than in reality. No more than a booking a day is accepted.

Description

Price from: £168

Through my art, I reveal human beauty in a playful way. My stylized portraits done with permanent markers are defined by a strong clear line and have a clean, professional look, embody the emotion and energy of the moment, and are very popular at events I'm invited to.

A 20% deposit must be paid to secure the booking at a specified date and at the price listed above. The full amount has to be paid no later than 3 days before the event date. The live caricature event is subject to full payment made in advance. I accept no more than a booking a day and I take great care in preparing it.

Kids' parties: Children must be supervised at all times during the drawing process by the people in charge. My work requires a high level of concentration and I cannot always be aware of what is happening around me.

For a successful live caricature event, it is necessary to have:

* One chair for me and one for my model, or two if I have to draw couples.

* A small table for my tools and to present some drawings for your guests to understand what to expect. If there is no table, a stool, or anything like that, can be helpful to have my tools accessible on it.

* Indoor - Decent lighting in the drawing area, a place close to a window, or a source of light is best.

* Outdoor - A shaded area is a must! Sunlight can be very powerful and its reflection on paper can make the drawing process very challenging or impossible. Also, there is no way to perform to the highest standards in the hot sun for hours. It is good to remember there can be a few other factors that can interfere with the drawing process like cold, wind, and humidity, which can affect my speed.

* All event attendees are entitled to a 20% discount on caricatures from photos for their families and friends on orders placed within 14 days of the event date - full details are included on the backside of the drawing sheet.

Silu was an excellent addition to our work Christmas party! Everything was very seamless throughout the booking process, Silu arrived promptly and gave our guests a great experience. Many of our guests wished he could've stayed longer as they were keen to get their drawings done after seeing his work. I would definitely recommend his services.

Thanks Silu!

Silu had a hard job being in a room full of people who can draw! So we were quite analytical and he probably felt the pressure! Service was good tho- he arrived promptly was polite and delivered what he was meant to!

My experience with Silu has been fantastic right from the point of booking up till the event closure. He is very professional, we have many email conversations leading up to the event to ensure we both met each others expectations. The guests loved him, he was very polite and everyone loved their sketches. I would highly recommend him to others.

Silu Cartoon is an incredible artist and great host. Everyone loved having their portraits drawn and it brought an element to the party which couldn’t have been created without him.
Don’t think twice about Silu, you wont be disappointed!

FAQs

  • How long is the act?

    Two hours minimum per event is recommended. 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. The number of drawings per hour is related to the size of the gaps between drawings (usually, I'm very busy so the gaps are minimum) and to the complexity of the models.

  • Do you need specific materials or conditions to offer your service?

    For a successful live cartoon event, it is good to have 1. Decent lighting, indoors, in the drawing area. A place close to a window or a source of light is best. 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.

  • How much time do you need to prepare for an act?

    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.

  • Do you have Public Liability Insurance?

    Yes.

  • Can we personalise every drawing with our logo & branding?

    The artwork looks better by itself, as well, some of your guests will like to have the freedom to frame only the portrait. Still, if it is important for your business/event, you can have your logo or other symbols at the bottom of the front page, but it is preferable to keep it as simple as possible. I'll be happy to add stickers (preferable - you can choose the quality of printing etc.) provided by you at the bottom of every front page. Alternatively, you can have your logo printed, black & white (it works only for black and white with no shades), for free, for a limited number of sheets, 10 per every hour of the event. The backside of the sheet contains info for your guests to can learn more about the artist and story behind the art - "why I draw - find out about my artistic philosophy". The understanding of why and how the artist chose to express himself thru his work, makes the art experience more complete.

  • What experience do you have working with children?

    I think there are no better models for cartoons than kids. 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!".

  • Do you do caricatures from photos prior to the events/weddings?

    If you think you'll be too busy during your event to attend the live session (bride and groom) and you book live caricature for your guests only, you can choose to have your caricature done prior your event. The drawing will be delivered on my arriver, before the live event. Please let me know if you need this service to be included in your quote.
