Your guests will be charmed and AMAZED when you invite caricature/silhouette artist Emily Byrne (formerly Emily Anthony; she got married!) to your party! It's so much fun to watch spot-on, yet light-hearted likenesses emerge from her pen or scissors, in only minutes per face. It's not just entertainment--it's also a party favor that your attendees will treasure forever!

CARICATURES: Emily has caricatured everyone from newborns to one-hundred-year-olds...and is proud of her many years of professional experience at all types of events, from casual to formal. She draws approximately 12-14 faces per hour in B&W, and 8-10 in color, using archival ink markers, smearless colored pencils and quality heavyweight paper. Each drawing gets its own plastic bag. As an award-winning gold member of the International Society of Caricature Artists, Emily is passionate about her craft. At events, her clients remark that they can plainly see how much she enjoys what she does for a living--putting smiles on faces, both literally and figuratively!

In addition to traditional live caricatures, Emily also creates Studio Digital Caricatures from client photos (think birthday, corporate, retirement, and holiday gifts, commercial caricature illustration, and sign-in boards for large parties--this is especially popular for weddings) which can be emailed to any location for printing. Caricatures make the perfect customized gift!

SILHOUETTES: Emily has recently mastered the amazing-to-watch skill of freehand silhouette cutting--no drawing is involved at all, she just looks at each subject and cuts an accurate profile in a minute or two! The delightful result then is pasted to a customized-for-your-event 5 x 7 card and placed in a clear plastic sleeve for your guests to take home and treasure. She can currently cut 20+ faces per hour.

For all events, there is a two-hour minimum. For further-away gigs, there may be a three-hour minimum. Emily also carries event liability insurance if your venue requires it.

Please check out Emily's feedback below from her fantastic Gigmasters clients--it speaks for itself :-)

I knew from reviews that Emily was a talented artist, but watching her in action was mesmerizing! The booking process was extremely easy and Emily was a delight to talk to - you can tell she is passionate about her work! Throughout our entire cocktail hour and reception Emily worked tirelessly, as there was a continuous line. She always had a smile on her face and everyone loved her drawings. (The drawing of my grandparents was priceless!) Live caricatures is such a wonderfully unique touch to weddings - I'm so glad we had the opportunity to work with Emily and would definitely book her again for another big occasion.

Emily was amazing. My wedding (6/12/2016 in Monroe, NJ) had ~ 30 kids < 18 years old in attendance. Emily was able to draw them in groups, keep them engaged, and managed not to lose her sanity in the process! She was a consummate professional and and drew lovely caricature portraits for adults as well. I only wish she had taken time to eat! I would definitely recommend Emily for any event. Her style was a perfect bled of portrait-style and cartoon-ish embellishment, depending on what the subject wanted. My (now wife) and I got our portraits done last, and they came out amazing. it's been framed already and it one of our favorite keepsakes from the day.

Emily was the caricaturist at my son's Bar Mitzvah last weekend. She was amazing! We had over 75 kids and she was able to draw all of the kids over a four hour period. The pictures are amazing and really look like the kids! All of the parents were so excited to see the pictures. Emily was extremely easy to work with and I would definitely recommend her!
