Event Caricature and Queue Control II

Unable to do Caricature for Sleeping Children/Baby
I found sleeping children or baby was very difficult to do.

In live quick caricature, the outcome of a sleeping baby or children was bad; thought such caricature only can be done in studio that having plenty of time, not in an event that having crowded and long queue.
Moreover, after you spent big effort to try it out, the parents will tell you: "Doesn't looks like at all!" Hence I strictly not doing any sleeping children or baby; such type of drawing, beside studio works and for editorial purpose, it belonging to fine art drawing, not suit for live caricature at all; unfortunately, lots guests in the event did not understand this.

Not Drawing photos or photos from mobile phone which given by the guests during Live Caricature
Many people thought during our live caricature drawing session, we can be able to draw their wife/husband/children's caricature (whom not presented in this event) from their mobile phone since they queue. Thought they did not understand that we taking much longer time to draw caricature from a photo due to a photo was giving limited info compare with the real person, moreover, the photo's quality, the clearness of the photo, when the photo being taken, the angle of the photo etc could caused us spend more then 25 minutes to produce the drawing.
We are hired to entertain the guests that attended this event with a limited time frame of booking, the organiser can't afford us only entertain 2-3 guests in an hour's booking for a 20pax -900pax (or more)'s event.

Event Caricature and Queue Control

Doing caricature in the event under "Free Drawing" category, as a caricaturist, we not just purely in-charge doing the free drawing for the guests during our booking hour, we need to know how to control the queue effectively.

Usually, in the last 30 minutes of my drawing session I will check the queuing guests and cut the queue by telling them I can only draw that much of people within the last 30 minutes and give respectively paper to each guests in the queue that I am able to completed within 30 minutes.

At this moment, you can found many people in the queue who wanted the free drawing became very "creative" like asking if can squeeze 2 or more persons in a drawing so they can get more people being done.

Frankly speaking, most of the time I insists only 1 person allowed to be drawn in an individual piece of paper is because 2 or more people being drawing in same piece of paper will take longer time, it involved time taken in positioning of the persons being drawn and the right scale size of the heads to be drawing in this paper, it definitely not suitable for an event that having big crowd and queues with limited working time frames.
