DRAWING BOOTH PORTRAIT ARTISTS
Drawing Booth seeks exceptional artists to provide sophisticated hand-drawn portraits on an iPad for private and corporate events. Artists must be reliable, comfortable working with a crowd, able to engage event-goers in casual conversation and able to draw flattering portraits of people in as little 90 seconds (and up to 3 minutes).
The job of the artist is not only to capture the portrait, but to engage with attendees, while handling the technology and procedures smoothly with aplomb. Tasks include include drawing the portrait, engaging in conversation with the subject and guest-bystanders, diplomatically fielding attendee and client requests, saving and sending the completed drawings to the client and to print on a mobile hip-holstered printer, and presenting the finished work- all in a matter of minutes.
