Price List for Live hand drawn caricatures
If you hire Kumar, there are no surprises.
All assignments are generally accepted with 3 hour minimum.
If quote is accepted, you directly deal with Kumar from start to finish.
If you shop around, you will find that a caricaturist at your event will cost you several hundred dollars per hour. What's happening is that the event host hires an event management company or entertainment company, who then hires a caricaturist. The company takes a hefty cut, the host pays a fortune, and the artist doesn't get very much at all. If we cut out the middle man, everyone will get a better deal.
