Everything You Want to Know About Kirkatures (But were afraid to ask)
Kirkatures are appealing cartoon portraits that bring out the best in everyone!
Lucky enough to be born with a last name perfect for either a caricature artist or a spaceship captain, Adam Kirk settled on a career in the arts when he realized that his drawing skills surpassed his knowledge of interplanetary navigation. An alumnus of Sheridan College’s BAA Animation program in Oakville Ontario, Kirk has traveled as far as Beijing China to make films, has worked as a storyboard artist and animator for tv shows, teaches film making at MTYP and has been drawing caricatures under the name Kirkatures since 2011. Kirkatures took the Fringe Festival by storm and have been appearing at parties, festivals, craft sales, trade shows, weddings, after grads, birthdays and other events across Canada ever since. There is a lot that Kirkatures has to offer for all your cartooning needs, including...
Kirkatures is based in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Send a message with the time and date of your upcoming event to find out if Kirk is available to draw you and your guests. A friendly caricature artist at your next function is a great way to entertain friends, family, coworkers and everyone on your guest list. The price to have Kirkatures draw at an event is $100 per hour and he can draw about fifteen faces per hour. Alternatively, the host can pay nothing and anyone who wants to be drawn can pay $20 per person for their Kirkature. Each drawing is done on 8.5x11 card stock paper with a pencil and a Sharpie.
