As a caricaturist, I have 11 years of experience drawing caricatures at parties, corporate events, weddings, and more! If you need an artist, I'm your guy! I draw on 11" by 17" paper and bring bags for you to keep the caricatures in. It only takes three minutes per face for a black and white drawing, and five minutes per face for a colored caricature.
My then fiance, now wife, and I requested Rolando to draw caricatures at our wedding. He did a fantastic job and was one of the most talked about things from the evening. We didn't get a chance to sit down and get our caricature drawn that evening but Rolando followed up and said if we sent a pic of the two of us then he would get one made for us. Total class act and our big day wouldn't have been complete without Rolando!
Rolando did a fantastic job, and I couldn't speak more highly of him!
Omg! Book Rolando for your event! It was the absolute HIT of our wedding reception. He was so fast and I think most everyone got one done. He was on time and professional. Highly Highly recommend!
Rolando was absolutely superb at drawing Family and friend at my sons wedding. It was so popular he stayed an extra hour! Highly recommend him. His pricing was spot on too!
Great service! Prompt! Courteous! Wore a mask! Friendly! And Gray wish! Highly recommend!
They did wonderful. They brought a fun touch to the holiday party! The drawings were well done and they were able to get a lot done in a short time. Thank you again!
He did an awesome job. Drew the kids first to allow them not to have to set to long and was very personable
Thanks Rolando for a job well done. All our families were delighted with your drawings!

What to Expect
If booked for your event, I will arrive 30-45 minutes early for set-up. Each face will take three minutes to draw and I will put finished drawings in bags. I will give you a physical invoice after the event is over and also email you a digital invoice for personal records.
Rolando Jose DeCastro III has been happily drawing caricatures for eight years at corporate events, weddings, and parties. Starting as an artist at the Indianapolis Zoo, Rolando has extensive experience drawing people quickly and capturing a great likeness, while also accentuating the sitter's personality. When not doing caricatures, he teaches animation courses for the Computer Graphics Technology Department at IUPUI and does freelance illustration work for the video game and film industry.
Additional Booking Notes
I always bring my own table, chair and easle! If your event can provide me with at least two chairs for people to sit, that would be great!
For markers, I use a combination of Black Crayolas, Copics, Chartpaks, and Sharpies. I also bring bags and rubber bands for people to store their drawings.
It takes me three minutes to draw a black and white face and only five minutes to do both color and ink.
