Live Event Fashion Illustration

Jennifer Marlin

Live fashion illustrations are a memorable experience and a unique gift!  Each guest receives a stylized fashion illustration they can share on social media or take home to frame. Live sketching is perfect for fashion and beauty store events, weddings, bridal showers, private parties, PR launches, and galas.

I draw full body, torso, or portraits (shoulders up) sketches on 5 x 7″,  8 x 10″, or 9 x 12″card stock, and have a few different alternatives for level of detail and speed. I offer the option to take home photos of guests and complete the  additional artwork for drop-off. 

* Please email me for more information and samples of different sketch options. 

• I’m available for travel events.

• I can draw live with guests lining up at my table, from photos on my Ipad, or a combination of both live and from photos during the event depending on when guests are seated or what works best for the itinerary. Having a host to take photos is an add-on option. I offer virtual zoom sketching at the same rate as onsite + shipping. 

• For weddings if requested I draw the Bride and Groom either during dinner from a photo, or later at home to be mailed or dropped off after the wedding. The Bride and Groom sketch takes 30 minutes of booked time. Often couples will choose a detailed sketch for the family or Bridal party and quicker sketch for guests. 

• Typically I draw using the elongated body fashion illustration aesthetic. I’ve done a few events where the client requested  a more realistic body size. In that case, I shorten the legs  and for curvier figures add some width, though everything is still a bit stylized.  Please let me know if this is something you might be interested in. 

• Packaging to protect artwork and art materials are provided, and I have an easel chalkboard sign, though you can create your own sign if you prefer.  All I need to set up is a chair, good lighting, and ideally a 6-8′ table or surface area, please.  Please contact me for pricing and booking. I’m looking forward to working with you at your event!

Clients events I’ve illustrated live for include Nordstrom, Tiffany’s,  Dior, Armani, David Yurman, Louis Vuitton, Target, Moxy Hotel’s, The Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Bumble BFF,and Forever Bride. I also do many weddings 😉
