The Caricature Artist
Fun entertainment choice for all occasions
"Just wanted to let you know what a fantastic job you did with the caricatures at our wedding reception on 10/18. Everyone loved them !!!!" - Judy
"All of my guests were very impressed!" - Kathy A.
Everyone will entertained AND all of your guests will go home with a hand drawn caricature - a great party favor and memory of your event. I go to your location - available within 35 minutes of West Chester Pennsylvania. I might even mix in some close-up magic or balloon twisting if you'd like - I'm just about the only caricaturist in the country that can do that! I'm very fast on the draw - I draw 15-20 people an hour in B&W on 11 by 14" paper. I am very friendly and professional. I've been entertaining people with art for 27 years. I bet I've drawn 100,000 people (but I haven't been counting).
Above is an example of an "action pose". Action poses are a lot of fun for people to watch being drawn. I can base the pose on a hobby or occupation, or just make something up for a funny surprise. I draw 12-15 people per hour when doing action poses.
Action poses take longer than doing just faces but are more entertaining. If I have a lot of people to draw, I will switch to just doing faces so I can get more drawings done per hour. Color caricatures take an extra 2-3 minutes per person.
These are examples of individual caricatures. When drawing faces from the shoulders up, I draw about 15-20 guests per hour.
Another example of an action pose. This one is of musician/actor Jack Black. The drawings are usually done with black marker on 11 by 14" paper.
