Alisa Maxime Studio offers custom art and top-tier Live Fashion Sketching services at events.
Our art embodies a high spirit, a positive mood, and a beauty that shines from within. We bring it to our clients with every artwork. We work with artists in Austin, Houston, and Dallas, travelling out of state for events.
Hire a professional fashion illustrator for your personal or business project.
Our In-studio Fashion Sketches are similar to the Live Sketches created at events, and even more detailed and beautiful.
This is a perfect handmade personalized art gift for your loved ones, or for yourself.
Watercolor, markers, pencils, and ink on premium Italian paper, 8x10in, matted, in a protective sleeve.
How long does it take to draw one person?Each sketch takes just under 7 minutes, allowing the artist to draw a significant number of your guests at a very competitive pace. Considering this pace and your budget, you may wish to increase the number of hours, hire a second illustrator at the same rate, or order an in-studio completion of sketches, that we will mail you within a week of the event. We are open to discussing that.
Do you travel outside of TX?Yes, we do! Please fill out the contact form to get a free detailed quote for your event.
How many hours do I need to book?We book a minimum of 3 hours and recommend 5 hours for weddings. Each sketch takes just under 7 minutes, allowing the artist to draw a significant number of your guests at a very competitive pace. Considering this pace and your budget, you may wish to increase the number of hours, hire a second illustrator at the same rate, or order an in-studio completion of sketches, that we will mail you within a week of the event.
Do you create a sketch for every single guest?We know that not all guests may want or have a chance to participate. It is rarely our goal to create a sketch for 100% of the guests. We create a shared experience that all guests enjoy by turning the event into an improvised art exhibition, where guests discuss their impressions about the art and some of them have a piece of their own artwork to take home. Our booth becomes the highlight of every single event we work on, regardless of the coverage.
Can I write names on the template?One week before the event, we create a free customized template that reflects the style, colors, names, dates, and any memorable words for your event. So once you are ready to book, please also send that info.
What materials do you use?We use watercolor, markers, and ink on premium Italian paper and hand the sketches to the guests in presentable protective sleeves, ready to take home.
Can you draw during the wedding ceremony?The illustrations are created based on photos of the guests we take during the event. This allows us to work non-stop throughout your event without requiring participation from the guests. Our onsite assistant helps and guides the guests with poses and scheduling, so artists can focus 100% on the artwork. We'll arrive one hour early, prepared to start as soon as photos are available.
When do I need to pay?Once the details are finalized, we prepare an invoice and request a 50% deposit to book your date. We also offer interest-free payment plans to make the process as convenient as possible for you.
What are the setup requirements?Our requirements for the venue are - a 4ft table, 2 chairs, and an electric plug. It's as simple as that! Still, we will discuss the venue layout and make sure everything is tailored to your preferences. It is preferable to set up a table inside to avoid changing weather conditions impacting the art materials.
What is the ideal time to start during the event?The typical drawing time for an evening event is 6pm - 10pm. Although it is completely up to you - the illustrations are created based on photos of the guests we take during the event. This allows the artist to work non-stop throughout your event without requiring participation from the guests. The pictures can be taken throughout the event and even before such activities, as wedding ceremony, dinner, auction, etc. Artists keep drawing when your guests are busy. We'll arrive one hour early, prepared to start as soon as photos are available. We only charge for the drawing time, not the setup time.
