How much does it cost?

Promotional sessions at the moment are free of charge! The ticket for a regular session will cost 25$ per person.

Can I be drawn live together with my friends?

Yes, I can draw multiple faces in one picture. You don’t even need to be at the same place. Every person can log in with his/her own phone/PC. But each person needs one ticket.

Can you draw from a photo?

The prices for commissions from photos are listed here and they are higher, because they take considerably more time and effort.

At the moment I’m not taking private commissions from photos. If you want to gift someone with a caricature, you can consider getting a live ticket for him/her instead.

Any Other Question?

    Further appointments will be added. Make sure to follow @xidingart to get the announcement, and put yourself on the waiting list.

    • Promotional price: free!
    • Regular price: 22 € ($25) per drawn person
