Signature Cartoonist Aster

All the benefits of live cartoons

Idea of the cartoonist
The best advantage :
The cartoon doesn't require a special time range in the program.


Like the illustrations contained in written communications, live cartooning using caricatures allows you to:

  • Enhance the content put across in an original manner
  • Maintain the attention and interest of your audience, spectators and speakers
  • Lighten the load when presenting information, and relax the atmosphere
  • Create a break, allowing you to 'breathe' for a moment... using art and humour!
  • Represent your topic, making it less abstract
  • Structure the event: introducing the themes, moving from one speaker to the next
  • Humanise the communication through the subjectivity of the drawing
  • Offset your speech, give a different perspective (that of the outsider, the neophyte, the 'artist')
  • Cement certain points in the memory through the impact of the image
  • Emphasise, get a key idea across (which can be communicated to the cartoonist beforehand)
  • Flag up a certain detail, attract our attention to something that might have gone unnoticed
  • Summarise long developments or a situation through a drawing
  • Raise a smile or laugh from the audience and/or the speaker (perhaps making him or her more 'friendly'!)
  • Convey a positive image of the organising body (ability to be self-depreciating)
  • Ex-press ('relieve the pressure of') the audience's feelings, through representation
  • Dare to say what remains unsaid, or to ask that naïve or 'fatal' question - what everyone is thinking or perhaps nobody has thought of
  • Temper an idea that is too unequivocal
  • Conclude in a positive manner

Specific, very practical uses

  • Welcome the participants, guests, audience
  • Capture their attention
  • Ask them to switch off their mobile phones
  • Remind the speakers to keep to their allocated time
  • Encourage them to speak closer to the microphone
  • Explain a communication procedure applied during the meeting
  • Call the room to order in a nice way
  • Announce a break, lunch, etc.
  • Fill a gap (due to a technical problem, for example)
  • Help a speaker in difficulty - having trouble making themselves understood, being heckled, losing their place in their notes
  • Pay tribute to those who cannot be there
  • Thank the participants in an original way
  • Communicate a reference website or e-mail address to be noted down
  • Invite the participants to a drinks reception
  • Provide a set of illustrations for any meeting reports or
  • Give a gift or reward to the participants: caricature, original drawing, etc.
In the case of a less formal event:
  • Amuse, provide humour, laughter, surprise, a touch of originality
  • Promote communication (the drawings will prompt reactions, get people to move around, etc.
  • Encourage a sense of relaxation in circumstances that can sometimes become 'stilted'
  • Bring the participants together around a drawing (created with them, for example)
  • Offer participants the pleasure of seeing themselves or their friends being caricatured
  • Respond to requests from guests, participants or attendees
  • Provide a souvenir (the drawings can be given to the participants)
