Caricatures During COVID-19

(I have a daughter getting married in June of 2021, the date was planned before the pandemic and has never changed, but about 100 people had to be cut from their guest list. I know how stressful planning a wedding can be especially during COVID, but your event will be just as you imagined in spite of the pandemic.)

In June I started doing caricatures for the first time since mid-March when the COVID-19 Virus hit causing NY and Long Island to shut down. I had this backyard bridal shower booked for months before that, as it got closer, the bride-to-be called to let me know it was still on. I wanted to have some sort of barrier around me and got those little flags. I was wearing a mask when I walked in to get setup but took it off since I was the only one wearing one (since then I always keep it on while working at parties and weddings). I positioned myself so the wind was blowing left to right, not at anyone. Now that the weather is changing and parties are moving indoors I get to catering halls and restaurants early to setup for social distancing…


"…I know it’s a little last minute but I’ve been debating on trying to find something to fill some time because of the no dancing policy. We’re only having 50 people so I think 3 hours will be plenty of time. Maybe to start after our first dance." - Melissa O.

~ From Some Recent E-mails Concerning COVID Restrictions and Caricatures at Weddings ~

"I’m getting married on 12-12-20 in a small ceremony / dinner since we had to postpone our big wedding this year. Since there is not allowed to be dancing I wanted to try and figure out some other sort of entertainment. I found your contact info in the BOLI group (Brides of Long Island group) on Facebook and you come highly recommended!" - Tamarah B.

Caricatures At Weddings?
(Reasonably Priced Wedding Entertainment NY)

A caricature artist at a wedding? Yes! Caricature artists for wedding receptions always entertain your guests. I try to get the Bride & Groom before the end, because that's when everyone is leaving and kissing them goodnight, which is very distracting. Since I get there early to setup, what I've been doing lately is taking pictures of the bride and groom at the beginning of the wedding or even before it starts and working on it when I get a few moments so that it's done by the end if they don't get a chance to sit for one (above and below photos). At first you might think that having wedding caricature artists entertaining your guests during a wedding is a unique, quirky, unusual or alternative wedding entertainment ideas, but it has become mainstream over the past ten years. Check out my Reviews on WeddingWire or my Facebook Wedding Page. I do most weddings on my own, but I have other artists I can call if you feel you need more than one.

This is from an e-mail I just received:
"I just saw a Rave Review on "Brides of Long Island" (on Facebook) and thought about HOW FUN it would be to have you at our wedding instead of a photo booth!" - Eileen
She's referring to a Review on a Private Facebook Group "Brides of Long Island" that I haven't seen, but have heard about. Written by a bride who's wedding I must've drawn caricatures at.

A view of my usual setup, I arrive early and find a place where people can watch over my shoulder. It's just as entertaining for those watching as for those being drawn, it even adds to their suspense.

Every caricature artist has their own style, my caricature style is very complimentary looking much like the people, with just enough exaggeration whether in the cartoon bodies or the heads to be fun and not be insulting. Right when people sit and talk a little, I can easily tell who I can fool around with more or less. These caricatures were drawn during a fun wedding at the East Wind Caterers, Wading River, NY.

Always a fun "surprise" scene to draw when I get wine lovers. Actually, I do draw caricatures in color sometimes at large events like weddings, but usually they are in b&w because they go faster with larger crowds.

One of the woman in the group above suggested that I make up a new background; "You should make a scene with the woman doing the laundry, cooking, cleaning and the guy sitting with a beer and the remote." So I did and it's one of the pre-drawn backgrounds I take with me to parties that people can choose from.

Here's a collection of caricatures from a Chinese-American Wedding in NJ. I made up 2 pre-printed backgrounds ahead of time with the single and double Chinese Lions, some text in the lower left corner and worked in the "double happiness" characters. I did color caricatures of the bridal party and b&w for the rest of the guests. Someone even asked me to put their dog into their caricature which happens sometimes.

"Hi Marty, I've used you several times over the years most recently for my daughter's pharmacy graduation party and before that, my son's wedding, he has four kids now! I'll be getting married again and would like you to make a rocking chair background for singles and couples to use at the wedding. Thank you for always being there for my family!"
