Caricature and silhouette entertainment can add that extra needed zip to your party. When choosing an artist for your event, it is good to hire an experienced artist with great reviews. Darci Herbold has a degree in art, years of experience, and over 100 great reviews from happy customers on the internet (Yelp, Gig Masters, etc,). In many of Darci's past reviews, clients have said "Her caricatures were the hit of the party!" and "Her silhouettes were an elegant addition! "
Darci's caricatures are done on quality heavy paper and put in a clear bag. Great for corporate events, 1st birthdays, weddings and other events. Often you will hear laughter from the guests when she is drawing, with her humorous situations for the backgrounds. With kids, She does not "over exaggerate" features so as not to embarrass them.
Darci's creates her caricature quickly. Her speedy 1 to 1.5 minutes per person style is great for large events. She also has a 2.5 to 3 minutes per person style with more detail. You can also have Her do the 2.5 to 4.5 minute per person, most popular, "standard style", caricatures that have even more detail. There are 4 time lapse videos of her drawing on this website to watch.

Darci's silhouettes are also truly enjoyed by party guests. She hand cuts Her silhouettes on the spot ithout any pre-drawing. Each silhouette is put in a beveled edge mat board black frame and is placed in two bags 1. A clear plastic sleeve/bag. #2. A translucent/frosted white gift bag.
Darci does not distort the faces and her attention to detail of your guests and clients will be enjoyed by all. A couple of phrases Darci hears a lot when she is cutting out silhouettes are " amazing!" and "I have never had this done before". Hold up the silhouette to your guest's profile and see the likeness. Glasses, bows, curly hair, the correct shaped noses, all these things are noticed by Darci and cut to make a beautiful silhouette memento to take home.
When She cuts the silhouettes, Darci cuts out two at a time. The 1st goes to the guest and the 2nd silhouette is for you for an album. Also, this second one is for the guest to put a personal message next to the silhouette.
Practicing fast drawing for years as a young person Darci later studied art at Long Beach State. Not long after graduating, Darci started her own art business.
Some of her clients are Costco, Jet Blue, Toastmasters, Target, Parker Aerospace,Fletcher Jones Mercedes, University of Phoenix, Toyota, Pepsi, Visa, Verizon, & Guess Jeans.
Darci comes early to set up and is professional in how She dresses and conducts herself. She also carries artist liability insurance.
Do not hesitate to book Her before someone else books her for the day of your event. Your guest will be thrilled with their "take home" keepsake.

Our guests LOVED this addition to our daughter's wedding. I didn't imagine that every single guest would want to have their silhouette done. Darci made everyone happy. I would highly recommend hiring Darci. I think she provides a lot of bang for your buck!

Darci not only an amazing and talented artist, she is also so sweet, warm, and accommodating, and she makes your guests feel incredibly comfortable. I hired her as a silhouette artist for a bridal shower and everyone was so amazed at how quickly she worked-- it is a marvel to see! She is able to cut two silhouettes at a time, one for the guest to keep and one that will get put into a scrapbook for the bride, what great way to make the event memorable and special! I would absolutely love to work with Darci again, I am going to be a repeat customer!

Darci was singlehandedly the most fabulous vendors to work with. She is exquisitely talented, accommodating and just a joy to have around! She was a huge hit, so much so that she stayed for the whole reception. Do not hesitate to hire Darci for any event you are planning! The guests adored her and reported they will treasure the silhouettes she did and unlike many other wedding favors, they want to display her work. She arrived on time, was highly professional and such an asset to the wedding. You will be missing out on a distinctive and elevated addition to your event without Darci! She will be a hit at your event!!! We feel lucky to have met her.
