For event entertainment, the client is billed an hourly rate and the caricatures are FREE for all of the guests who get drawn at the event. Rommel currently charges $125 per hour for Black & White caricatures or $150 per hour of service for Color caricatures. He is capable of drawing at least 12 people per hour in Black & White or at least 6 people per hour in Color. And since Rommel travels to your event's location, he also charges a travel fee of 50¢ per round-trip driving mile from his hometown of Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Mileage distance is estimated using Google Maps.

As an added option to you, Rommel can also provide Picture Protectors (clear plastic envelopes with sturdy cardboard backing) for each person to protect and display their caricatures at an additional $25 per hour of service. This option is strongly recommended if the drawings are to be handled by children or if bad weather is a factor. You may even want to customize each caricature so that your guests remember your event with a personalized message or logo, stamped on every drawing. Rommel charges $100 for the Customized Paper option, which is a one time fee regardless of the number of sheets printed. If you do some research, you will discover that all of these rates are very reasonable and competitive.
