Need a NYC Caricature Artist? Call Elgin Subwaysurfer Bolling For YOUR next Party or Special Event!
There are HUNDREDS of very talented caricature artists in the NYC area, so WHY should you hire ME??? I can think of FIVE reasons:
1) IM FAST
Caricature at a party should be FAST.
Look, you go to a party to enjoy yourself, eat the food, make a love connection, and dance! why would you WANT to spend the MAJORITY of your precious party time in a Loooooooong line waiting to MAYBE get drawn. It takes me 1-3 minutes to draw who ever is in front of me. FIVE MINUTES TOPS and if I take THAT long Im reallllly taking my time.
The great thing is if you get drawn by me you can get your pic FAST and enjoy the rest of the party.
2) I WILL MAKE IT LOOK LIKE YOU
The ugly truth is that there are a LOT of caricature artists who can draw a decent picture at a party that just doesn't look like YOU.
They cover up their lack of art skill by excessive shading and lots of color hoping that because you see blond hair on the character in the drawing that it MUST be YOU because you have the same color hair. When I draw you, it LOOKS like you. Sometimes HILARIOUSLY so!
I am committed to giving you something that is INSTANTLY recognizable to everyone. You will be proud to hang my picture on your wall, or your office.
3) IM EXPERIENCED
Ever have a novice plumber fix your kitchen sink? If you're not careful, you'll have an indoor kitchen pool.
While this doesn't apply to ALL novices, Experience really IS the best teacher. I have over 10 years of it working every kind of entertainment venue. Working these different venues have given me a certain "feel" for particular parties that a novice just doesn't have yet, and NEEDS if they are going to handle themselves with poise and professionalism. Unlike "studio drawing" which most artists are accustomed to, PARTY CARICATURE is a "live animal" full of noise, crowds, and energy that I’ve seen lesser artists fold and crumble under.
Don’t let that happen to you. Go with an artist with experience...er... that would be ME.
4) I’M MULTI TALENTED
man.... this isn’t even FAIR to say....Whenever you hire an artist to entertain your guests, if they are FAST, ABLE TO GET A GOOD LIKENESS, and EXPERIENCED, then technically they've done their job... what MORE could you "legally " ask for?
How about a TOTAL ENTERTAINER???
I believe that a caricature artist should be MORE than a person who stares blankly at you and hands you a picture.
I feel that he is a part of the ENTERTAINMENT PACKAGE and he should be multi talented.
IS HE INTERESTING AND THOUGHT PROVOKING??? CAN HE ENGAGE AND ENTERTAIN YOUR GUESTS WITH CONVERSATION??
CAN HE DANCE?
And DO. In fact, upon occasion I've even Taught an entire waiting audience how to break dance, moonwalk and do "tutting" all while not skipping a beat or losing time drawing...
CAN THE ARTIST SING???
I frequently break out spontaneously in song, encourage singalongs and other such antics while drawing..
I CAN EVEN BUST OUT A FEW RHYMES OR TWO...
I realize these things are not required, but they are just a few things I do spontaneously because I LOVE what I DO. When your guests leave your party I want them to say, “MAN! THAT WAS A GREAT PARTY!!”
5) I UNDERSTAND THAT A PARTY IS A REFLECTION ON THE HOST
If an entertainer does something crude, rude, or lewd at an event, it’s going to reflect on the HOST, NOT the entertainer. Folks are going to say, “WHY THE HECK DID THEY HIRE THAT JERK FOR??”
If you are a Businessperson, throwing great parties are crucial to your success, as they are reflections of YOU.
I understand THAT.
MOST artists DON’T.
Most are in it to sit down draw a picture, and LEAVE. Often times I’ve seen them cruelly make fun of a party guest just to feed their own ego, leaving the guest angry embarrassed, and humiliated in front of their friends and people they wanted to meet and impress.
I’m not saying that a Caricature drawing “should NEVER be exaggerated” after all, exaggeration of facial features is an essential part of the art form. What I AM saying is that an artist SHOULD have the SENSITIVITY and COMMON SENSE to be able to “read people” and know when it’s appropriate to do an exaggeration and when it is NOT.
When I exaggerate at parties my goal is to have you LAUGHING WITH ME Not ME LAUGHING AT YOU.
I make it a point to realize this is about entertainment. I’m there to make YOU the HOST look good and to make your guests feel great about coming to my stand.
That’s why I want to do it for YOU.
