$150 - $400 per event
I have a college degree in art from the Maryland Institute College of Art. I draw the large head with small body caricatures. I use a black marker on white paper. The subject tells me something about himself that I can work into the caricature, maybe it is hobby or sport, maybe it is something he makes up as an original idea. I pride my self on being able to improvise many 'on the spot' requests, not restricted to a preplanned pose like hitting a baseball, etc. I do not use gross exaggerations very much, I would not give a woman a huge nose for instance, like some artists do, unless of course the sitter says "go ahead make it outrageous". I have never had a subject complain about that. I will exaggerate more if requested, however, it has never really come up. The large head on the small body with the cartooning style always gets a laugh, which is the idea, to make people smile. I do have colored chalks to add color, but since speed is of the essence here that is rarely used as it takes longer. I bring my own setup, and supply a plastic bag for each drawing which is done on a heavy stock paper. I see so many caricaturist use a thin paper that they just tear off from a clipped pile and just hand it to the subject, but in a festive situation I worry about protecting my work and having it last, a lot of people get them framed. I try to take precautions so the drawing won't end up stained or crumpled. I do see myself as an artist, I always want my work to be appreciated and saved.

George is an excellent artist who cares about his work. He was pleasant and interested in producing quality drawings for our company.

George Edwards was great! We really enjoyed having him and he was definitely a popular attraction. The caricatures were awesome and his rates/fees are the best I've found. This was our first time booking a caricature artist and I'm glad we went with it versus booking a face painter or a different vendor because the kids can take the drawings home and keep them forever! We plan on booking him again for our next birthday party. If you want a caricature artist at your event, then book George Edwards. You won't be dissappointed!

I have not a bad thing to say about George. We had our son's 1st birthday costume party. Not only was George so tentative getting back to me throughout the time i hired him, he was early to the party and did an AMAZING job! He was very kind to all the children(there were a lot!)and was steadying working for 5 hrs straight! He was so patient with each of the kids, which can be hard when they are all crazy on cake! From his amazing pricing (hundreds of dollars less than others doing the same work), to his wonderful drawings, to his overall great attitude, I could not have found anyone better. I will certainly be hiring George in the future for more parties!
