VIRTUAL EVENT CARICATURES AND VIRTUAL MEETING CARICATURES
Virtual events and meetings have become a way of life and a great way to conduct business meetings or celebrations while we are asked to remain distant.
We have a way to bring the entertainment to you safely in the meantime. We’ve been providing live virtual caricatures via Zoom, Skype and Google Classrooms for parties, weddings, corporate meetings and virtual events. We share our screen so you and your guests are able to see the drawings take form. We will gladly draw a group session, or book individual time slots for private sessions with us.
Great for employee morale boosts and appreciation for those who have adapted to a new way of working and great student orientation or team building virtual events.

You will have a chance to proof, comment and request changes on the draft stage. Upon receiving your changes, we redraw the image according to your feedback. We repeat these steps in two rounds of changes. Additional changes applicable for any changes made after the approval of the final illustration
