Hey there! I'm Alex, and I've been doing caricatures for just over 12 years now at all kinds of events like weddings, proms, private parties, and amusement parks! I'm fast, accurate, and friendly, and want to draw at your event!
I'm quick to setup and quick to draw. Generally, I draw black and white pictures, and can get through about 15-19 people an hour, averaging out to about 3-4 minutes per face, and I can fit up to 5 people on a page! I've had a lot of positive reactions to my artwork, and my clients have often become regulars.
So, if you're interested in my work, please contact me today, because I can't wait to be a part of your next event!
Alexander did an amazing job! Everyone loved their pictures. We booked a two hour session and he was busy the entire time. 10/10 👍🏻
Great picnic with Alexander the Art. Awesome artwork and everyone was pleased.
Adding Alex to our dinner party birthday celebration was a great success! Everyone was thrilled with their souvenir to take home as a reminder of the great night we all had!
What a great service thank you so much Alexander for your kindness your great art skills we really appreciate you 😃
Alex was on time, and drew the entire time! His line was long, and needed to be "cut off" at one point. He was friendly with the adults and held great conversations with the kids. I would recommend booking Alex for your event!

Alex had our customers shocked at how well he caricatured all of them! Amazingly accurate talent! I received countless bits of excellent feedback from everyone at the event. He was a real hit and I would Highly recommend him for any event! Thanks.
Alex was an awesome addition to my childrens Birthday Party. Every child was excited and very patient to sit and wait for Alex. I highly recommend him, his artwork is amazing and every image he drew looked exactly like that child. He was child friendly and went above and beyond to make this a special touch for their party. We asked him to stay an extra hour because he was such a hit to make sure everyone was able to ge their picture drawn to keep for memories.

I have a quick, simple setup. I bring my french easel and set up a sign on top of it that details my info and the time I'm drawing until. I arrive about 20 minutes before I am to start drawing to set up, and then start right when I'm scheduled and don't stop until I'm done. Once I get going, I almost always stay busy!
I can draw about 15-19 people an hour, depending on hair, beards, or clothes. That averages out to about 3-4 minutes per face! My drawings are then placed in flat, plastic bags for protection. I don't require any supervision while I work, and can work in any kind of environment, quiet, loud, outside, inside, or even in the dark, as I have some lights I bring with me just in case!
I started doing caricatures back in 2005 at Cedar Point, OH while I was going to art school. After I graduated, I moved down to Tampa and worked at Busch Gardens. After hitting a few other amusement parks I eventually found my way back to Pennsylvania and settled in Bethlehem to work at Dorney.
I finally left the amusement park business to get a graphic design job in 2010. Worked at a local brewery for a few years before getting a job at Crayola. Now I just do caricatures on the side, and am busy most weekends! It's a fun side job, and allows me to be creative and talk to people, two things I love!
All I need is three chairs, and a cozy corner where I'm not in a way, I supply everything else! Very simple!

I have worked with so many different talented artists at different parks around the country, and all have helped to influence my style both on the paper and with customers. I trained new artists, and attended the International Society of Caricature artists convention several times, where I have won various awards, such as "2nd place best retail/party style" and "3rd place, world's fastest artist," and "1st place, best body situation." I have also given a few seminars/guest speeches regarding my work.
