A New Spin on Photo Booths

Doodlebooth offers hand-sketched portraits of guests in the same amount of time it takes to snap a photo.

Doodlebooth is a Chicago-based company that puts a hand-drawn spin on traditional photo booths. Illustrator Jana Kinsman, who's designed custom illustrations for clients such as CB2, sits with guests and quickly sketches their portraits. She gives the pictures out as keepsakes, and can also scan them into online albums that guests can digitally share. Examples of her event sketches are here.

To book Doodlebooth for an event, the rate is $650 for three hours. There's no extra cost for transportation to events in Chicago, Evanston, and Oak Park, but Kinsman will travel to events throughout the country for transportation fees at cost.
