Money!
Yup, that's right, I do like getting paid for my work, just like you. I've seen other caricature artists charging $40 or more for a live portrait of one person, and that's just silly. It's hard to have fun when your wallet stings like that.

I work in pencil with a blending stub for my black and white work, and for the colored stuff, I fill using an airbrush. Sturdy and colorfast, just right for framing. The portrait you get is on a heavy paper stock measuring 12"x16". And they look so good!

So why two sets of rates? Simple! When I work live, I work fast. You have places to be, and I know you don't want to sit around for fifteen minutes while I draw you. I just don't have the time to add everything I want. In my studio, I'll put more detail into your portrait, layer more color and take more time--usually four to five hours at least. You'll get better gags, more of a body and a theme of some kind.
