Caricatures Parties

A caricature is a rendered image showing the features of its subject in a simplified or exaggerated way. What better way than to celebrate your next event with a caricature artist?

Not only will your guest enjoy watching others being drawn, they will have a souvenir to remember their wonderful time.  Whether your party is large or small, people are amazed when they see their friends and family humorously and tastefully illustrated into cartoon “immortality”.

Black and White Traditional Caricatures

My most popular request!

If you are going to have a big party with a lot of people, black and white caricatures may be the way to go. This affords everyone a chance to take home a memento from your event.  On average I can draw a single caricature in black and white in about three to five minutes. Drawn on 12 x 18 inch paper. Frames that fit can be easily purchased at any local store.  Frames and mattes can be provided for an added cost if so desired.

Color Caricatures

Caricatures with flair

For more intimate caricatures, you can add color. Color caricatures are a great choice for smaller parties.  I can draw a single color caricature in about six to eight minutes. This affords me the opportunity to make the caricature pop, not only at your party or event, but framed in your home as well. Drawn on 12 x 18 inch paper. Frames that fit can be easily purchased at any local store.

You Host It – I’ll Draw The Crowd

Your party guests will be talking long after you clean up!

Over the years I have drawn caricatures for many types of events. Contact me today so we can incorporate something truly special that will complete your event.  I do not charge for travel unless it is over 45 miles.  In most cases I ask that you provide the lighting and chairs. If not, I just need to know ahead of time so I can be prepared.

Speciality Caricatures

Commissioned artwork

Speciality Caricatures are great one of a kind gift ideas that incorporate more detail than my standard caricatures. Perfect for family members, the big boss, or friends! Be sure to check out examples in my Gallery. All speciality caricatures come complete with frame and mat.

My Speciality Caricatures are drawn with both ink, color sticks and chalk to add detail through inclusion of multiple mediums. I can add names, logos, and dates of important events as well, if needed.  Pictures can be sent to me via email or we can meet at a local coffee shop so I can bring your vision to life.

Nothing says I care beside something from Jared, and a caricature!

Speciality or Commissioned Caricatures are fun, detailed and deeply unique.  If this is the direction you want to go, please contact me below and we will make arrangements to get it done in a timely and efficient manner.

I have drawn for celebrities, politicians, executives, both big parties and small parties. From Little Angels celebrating their first birthday to couples celebrating 50 years of marriage and all in between, my caricature skills fit any and all event and ages. I strive to provide you no stress as you add an element of excitement to your party. Let me bring the artwork so you can concentrate on the “other” details to make your party a success.  It has been my experience, that caricature art is a hit, and you will be the envy of all who attend.

By contacting me direct, you will save money on “middle-men” and agencies. Not only will you save money but you will get a quality experience that will be satisfactory or your money back!  You don’t pay me until my work is complete.  I am on time and will stay late if needed. Agencies don’t often provide this level of courtesy and commitment to their clients. I truly care about my clients and understand that my work is not complete until my clients are satisfied and have a smile on their faces.
