Amy Gorman is a freelance illustrator/caricature artist based in Dallas/Fort Worth, TX. If you need design or illustration work done for your event, Amy can create artwork to suit your needs no matter where you are located. As a caricature artist, she can travel to your event, provided it is in the Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas area, and draw live caricatures of your guests. Please don't hesitate to contact her for more information.
Amy has been drawing caricatures since 2003, beginning with her first job at Six Flags Over Texas. Since then, she has earned a BFA in Illustration from Ringling College of Art and Design in 2009. Now Amy currently works as a freelance illustrator and also as a caricature artist for events, parties, etc!
Amy can draw your friends, family, guests and even pets at your party or event! A two hour minimum is required for live caricature services and an additional fee may apply for locations greater than 30 mi. from Fort Worth. Amy draws her caricatures on a sheet of thick stock (80 lb.) 11" x 14" paper with markers. All of her materials are archival quality, so they will hold up for years to come as a memento of your event! She can draw each face in about 3-5 minutes (16-20 per hour for faces only, 10-14 per hours for full body caricatures, or 8-10 per hour for faces only in full color.) She can fit several faces in one drawing if your guests would like to be drawn in groups, although pairs and singles are ideal for detail/size reasons.
All that is required for set up are two or three chairs–one for the artist and one or two for the guest(s) being drawn. For the outdoors, a shady spot is preferred as your guests will be hard to draw if they are squinting at the sun! Amy provides her own drawing easel, drawing materials, lights and small table.
As additional features, Amy can do caricatures based on a theme (for example, base the theme on your child's favorite cartoon for his/her birthday party!) or print the paper ahead of time with commemorative text (great for weddings and other cherished moments!) Please let her know in advance if you have any ideas for added extras so preparations can be made.
**Please note that CARICATURES WILL BE DRAWN IN BLACK & WHITE, unless color caricatures are discussed in advance.**
