I have been a cartoonist/caricaturist for more than forty years. I have worked hotels such as The Thayer Hotel in West Point, The Nevele, Granite, Concord and Pines Hotels in the NY Catskills as well as Resorts International in Atlantic City, NJ. I have worked cruise ships such as the Europa Star out of Florida and The Honey Fitz (President's yacht). I have worked dude ranches like the Pine Grove Ranch in Kerhonkson, NY and The Rocking Horse Ranch in the NY Catskills.. I have worked commercial celebrations like Special Theme Days for Macy's Stores in NYC, Brooklyn and Connecticut. I have done convention gigs for GMC and many other major corporations.
Private parties? Way too many to list.
I was hired as a quick sketch artist/caricaturist during 2007 and 2008 to draw elderly residents at a retirement home every Tuesday night as a form of activity/entertainment. This experience ... putting a quality of vibrant life and energy into the sketches of the very elderly ... has carried over into all of my work afterwards.
What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 120 - 360 minutes
My caricatures get saved for years! People who have been drawn by me at hotels and at conventions have come back or contacted me for additional drawings as the subjects grow older.
Not only is it fun for the subject to have a caricature sketch made by me at parties or conventions, it's also a form of entertainment for the people who like to stand around and watch me draw.
One small table, two chairs and adequate lighting.
Table, chairs and adequate lighting need to be provided by the client.
