For my daughters first birthday party we wanted to do something different from face painting and so happy we did! Everyone loved their drawings!Feb 9, 2020Verified
Mike was excellent! We had a pre purim carnival for boys, the age ranging between 6 and 17. Mike was on time, and drew fabulous drawings. Everyone enjoyed his professionalism and calm nature while drawing each child. A real pleasure to work with.Mar 19, 2019Verified
Draw My Party did a wonderful job at our corporate event! Our guests loved their caricatures and he used new technology that was really cool! He drew digitally, so you could see the caricature on a screen as he drew and then printed the final product for the guests!! He is awesome!!Dec 27, 2018Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I generally charge $125 an hour for conventional caricatures, and $200 an hour for digital caricatures, with a two hour minimum. Conventional caricatures are drawn on letter-size paper, and each drawing goes into a plastic sleeve for protection. Digital caricatures are drawn on an iPad and projected onto a video monitor in real time. Each customer receives a printout and a digital file sent to his or her phone, both on the spot. I can draw about 15 caricatures an hour black and white, or 10 an hour in color. After two hours, I can work in 15-minute increments at $35 each.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?After I speak to them, or correspond with them through e-mail, for the details of the party. I then send them an invoice for 25% of the estimated bill, to retain the date. This is done through PayPal. I also send a contract by e-mail, which they fill out and e-mail back to me. The remainder of the payment is due the day of the event, by cash or check.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I went to art school (twice!) for illustration, and I have been drawing all my life.
