Normal caricatures per hour are as follows:
|Black & white face only about 15 sketches per hour (fast but not so popular)|
|Black & white with body about 8 sketches per hour (big-head/little body or comic book body)|
|Face only in color about 12 sketches per hour (the most popular for children's parties)|
|Face and body in color about 6 sketches per hour (the most popular overall (and artist's favorite!))|
|(NOTE-drawings per hour vary plus or minus 3 faces per hour depending on situation, crowd, set-up) |
|(NOTE-Steve prefers (and is notably faster) drawing couples and/or families on a page)|
Steve also does temporary tattoos with Sharpie pens.
|The tattoos look real and can last three to five days or wash off with alcohol.|
|Steve can create the henna look.|
|If you're willing bear it, Steve can draw on it.|
|How fast? Depends on what gets drawn where.|
He is one of the few artists left in the US to do silhouettes.
|He cuts the silhouettes from construction paper and mounts them on a contrasting colored paper.|
|He has stacked as many as four cut-outs on one finished product.|
|Each face takes about 5-10 minutes.|
Steve entertains crowds with butt sketches of individuals or groups
|posed around a theme prop then drawn from the back side.|
|The posing, with appropriate commentary from the artist and peanut gallery,|
|often takes longer than the actual drawing which takes about 3-5 minutes per person.|
Steve has done scene sketches at fund raisers and parties adding to the ambiance.
|The sketches were auctioned at the fund raisers and given away as gifts at the parties.|
Steve is VERY adaptable and will take on almost any odd-ball-off-the-wall project.
Give him a try.
