Turn your next event into a money-maker by adding a talented artist to sketch funny portraits for a fee. Drawing parodies takes talent, but chances are an art student from your local college will do a great job, so look for an amateur if you can find one. People like to see themselves the way others see them. That's one reason caricature is so popular. You can also include themed drawings, like sketches of people as animals or wearing funny hats. It'll be hilarious. Just make sure your artist knows to keep the drawings funny and not mean-spirited.
