Live event entertainment Frequently asked questions
On this page I have a list of some of the typical questions folks ask about my digital cartoon entertainment package.If you have a question that does not feature here just click the button to talk to Lyn the artist behind picky pencil.
What if my guests are reluctant to have a CARICATURE drawn?
I offer all your guests a choice between a caricature of their head and shoulders or their actual face on a cartoon body (see examples).My caricature style is very flattering .Past clients have described their drawings as cute or glamorous.If your guest is still a little shy there will sure to be a cartoon body they might like. Alternatively they can enjoy watching others have their cartoons created by watching my tv monitor which is connected to my tablet and transmits everything I draw.
Do you need any special equipment from my venue?
All I require from the venue is a space near a power socket and 3 chairs.
How will my guests know that there is entertainment available?
I work from an easel so your guests know something arty is happening .I bring along a banner so that your guests can see whats on offer.I also mingle to get things started and tell folks whats happening.
Do my guests get something to take home?
Yes each cartoon I create is printed onto a 4x6 inch photo print and presented in a protective sleeve.
My event has a theme ,can you adapt the cartoons you create?
Yes absolutely. If your let me know at the time of booking your theme I can make sure I have plenty cartoon bodies that match and I can add a background or wording to the caricatures.
How long does one cartoon take?
Unfortunately I can't guarantee how many cartoons I can create in the time you book me for. The cartoon takes around 5-8 minutes to create depending on the style your guests choose, it can vary but on average I can create between 6 to 12 per hour .I will do my best to give everyone that waits at my easel a cartoon home with them. Some caricaturists try to create more than 10 an hour but I feel this rushes your guest through the process creating a less relaxed and fun atmosphere.
Where do you travel to ?
I am based in Stuartfield in Aberdeenshire but regularly travel all over Scotland .
How much does this type of entertainment cost?
What happens if I lose my cartoon at the event?
After the event I upload all the cartoons created for your event to a personal webpage where you can request a jpeg copy of the cartoon free of charge.
