Fun entertainment choice for parties &
"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 be entertained AND all of your guests will go home with a caricature drawing - a great party favor and memory of your event. Available within 35 minutes of West Chester Pennsylvania. I can even mix in some close-up strolling magic if you'd like - I'm just about the only caricature artist in the country that is also a magician! 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 as a professional caricaturist for 30 years. I bet I've drawn 100,000 people (but I haven't been counting!).
I also do custom caricatures from photos - available to anyone from anywhere in the world. They are a really fun unique gift idea, great for people retiring, graduating, birthdays, teams of coworkers, etc. The custom work I do is now created on my computer and emailed to you, then you can print and frame it.
Above is an example of an "action pose" drawn at a wedding. 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 (15-20 people an hour if just drawing faces).
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 takes 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.
I'm available to do quick drawings as entertainment for adult or kids parties & events; company parties, holiday events, birthday parties, open houses, weddings, Bar and Bat Mitzvah's, college events, grad parties, proms, corporate events, family parties, etc.
Quick drawings, 12-20 people per hour.
I make it fun and funny - people love to watch.
Very popular idea for any special occasion.
Caricature art is a fun permanent memory for your guests.
I can draw couples, co-workers, family caricatures and groups of any size together on the same page.
