Live guest portrait Illustrations
A wedding experience your guests have never seen before
What is live guest portrait illustrating?
Artist, Jes McGinley, will sketch your friends and family during your wedding cocktail hour and reception in her signature back-facing style. Live event sketching gives your guests the best of both worlds: fun entertainment and a guest favor they will actually keep!
I am available anywhere from 4-6 hours on-site. On average, I can draw 1 guest in roughly 5-6 minutes & 2 guests in roughly 9-11 minutes. Please take into account transition times between each guest/drawing. I can approximately draw 4-6 couples or 8-10 guests per hour.
I am currently only booking weddings in 2023. If you are interested and your wedding is in 2024, feel free to reach out, and I will give you further infomation. Thanks for understanding!
