I draw the big head and little body caricatures with a hobby, sport, or special interest theme. I use a thick paper and put each drawing in a plastic bag.
We used best party caricatures for our daughters first birthday party, such a hit!! Very talented and fabulous work! We were very happy and so were our guests! Came early to setup & stayed past the original time to do out daughters caricature without questioning!
George Edwards of Best Party Caricatures did an awesome job drawing caricatures at my son's Eagle Scout Court of Honor. George actually drew my son from a photo since there was a Boy Scout ceremony occurring. My goodness, did the caricature look just like my son! He was drawn in his Boy Scout uniform. And, since my son is also an artist, he was drawn with an easel and paint brush in his hands. An eagle was in the background.
When the ceremony was over, there was a nonstop line for George to draw someone...children and adults. He was great! The caricatures caught the essence of every single person...their eyes, their cheekbones, the smiles. Everyone looked just like themselves...except with a big head and a little body. :-) George even stayed past his contractual time because he had two more people to draw.
Thank you George! I will assuredly hire you again and will definitely recommend you to others! Your price is reasonable and you are worth so much more than you charged. Your work in black and white is magnificent! Next time, we'll do color too!

What to Expect
I usually ask for 2 chairs and proximity to an electrical outlet, except for daytime outdoor jobs. I provide plastic bags for each drawing and use a heavy stock paper. I provide entertainment for the party.
I graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 1974 and started drawing caricatures on the boardwalk in Ocean City during the summer. Eventually it became a year around job and I have been doing it ever since. I draw the large head front view caricatures with the small humorous body with a them customized to the sitter's preference, like a hobby or sport.
