Live Scribe and Live Pin Up Portraiture
£275 day rate plus travel expenses
As your Live Scribe i bring my unique style of illustration and interpretation live to your event. I can sit quietly in a corner, or mingle with your guests, creating artwork before their eyes. I bring a range of media including watercolours, pencil and marker pens and create a large quantity of illustrations on the day. These illustrations can be displayed as they are made, to create an interesting ice-breaker or talking point for your guests. The style of illustrations produced can be bold and chic, bright and fun or soft and feminine to suit the tone of your event. Illustrations can be representations of the key talking points at your event (great for conferences and workshops) or portraits of your guests (great for press days and mixer events)
Guests can take illustrations away with them, or they can be digitally scanned and delivered after the event for a small extra fee.
Suitable for : Conferences, workshops, blogging events, fashion events, press days, events with a female focus, vintage fairs, charity events, wedding and hen parties.
Past clients include: Tesco & The Blogcademy.
