  • How do my guests get their caricatures?

    Unless instructed otherwise, all caricatures are drawn unto 11×17 paper and handed to the recipient in our custom bags so they can remain safe until it’s owner is ready to post it up or have it framed.

  • How Many Drawings Can You Do in an Hour?

    Each artist draws at a slightly different speed to capture a good likeness in a short amount of time. Speeds range from 8 – 12 people per hour, depending on different factors. Deciding on whether to do full color, B&W or B&W with a Splash of color will factor in. Working with a custom background can be another factor. But all of our artists are sensitive to the event’s environment and whether or not they can spend a little more time with each guest, maybe putting in the extra details, or streamlining the process, cutting some corner in style or color to get more people drawn when there’s a growing line.

  • We're expecting a lot of people at our event. Can we get more than one artist? And how many should I get?

    Absolutely! You can a number of artists. If your budget allows for it, you’ll guarantee getting more of your guests and clients drawn with more artists. Please feel free to contact us with any questions concerning additional artists and we’ll do our best to advise.

  • What would we need to provide at the event?

    In most cases we just ask you to provide a couple of chairs, a small table and access to an electrical outlet. Each artist has a slightly different setup, so there’s no standard deal. Your wants, the artist(s) equipment, travel arrangements, event’s location and venue will all be factors, but we’ll do our best to provide as much as we can in working out all the details.

  • Do You Charge for Travel Time?

    If travel requires an airplane, ferry etc. the client will assume responsibility for the cost. If a “local” event is more than 50 km from Caricature Creators’ home studio, a request for reasonable travel compensation will be made at the time of booking.

  • Do You Draw Caricatures from Photos?

    Of course we do! Our Caricature Creators can and do work from photos. If you book us for an event and would like to have some additional materials created from photos (an invitation, sign-in boards, thank you notes etc) then we would be happy to help out in that area. We can also take a look at other projects to be done from photos, including detailed caricatures for gifts, awards, caricature sign-in boards, business cards, websites, etc. If you’re not sure whether you need our illustrative or portrait services, just shoot an email to or call 647.640.7043 for details.

  • Do You Do Caricatures in Black and White or Do You Do Colour Caricatures?

    It’s your choice. Our Caricature Creators can draw vibrant, full colour caricatures or elegant monochromatic drawings.

  • Do You Make People Look Ugly or Weird in Your Caricatures?

    No. Caricatures have an unfortunate stigma from their use in where the subjects are lampooned based on their least flattering features. That is NOT what The Caricature Guy is about. The Caricature Guy draws humorous illustration that achieves a flattering likeness.

  • How Do You Know If You're Hiring a Good Caricature Artist?
