My easel and I can take an average party and make it fun and memorable.
Worked out great! Everyone enjoyed getting their picture drawn by him. He came prepared and ready to draw.
BobKat Art did a great job at our party!
Bob is a delight to work with. I have worked with Bob on a few different occasions. His caricatures are amazing and has a personality to match. He always makes his clients feel comfortable.
If you are looking for something special that will make your event remember-able. Call Bob today! You will not be disappointed!
Bob helped make our event AWESOME!! He was great with all age groups. I had so many positive compliments from our guests. Thank you so much!!!
Hired Bob to draw at our company Christmas party. He drew for 5 straight hours and was great from beginning to end. He was professional, courteous, and engaging with the guests. Everyone really liked their drawings. Would recommend his services for any function.
We held an 80th birthday party for my father over the memorial day weekend and we hired BobKat Art to come and sketch caricatures for all of our guests. Bob was a true professional from the moment I submitted a request on GigSalad. He quickly (I mean within an hour) responded to my request and followed up each week until the party. We had approximately 40 guests and they all raved about Bob and his work. It was a great addition to our party and my father (also an artist) was thrilled and truly enjoyed watching Bob sketch. Bob has a wonderful personality and he engaged so naturally and easily with all of our guests and I would recommend him in a heartbeat. Our guests all went home with a wonderful memento of my father's birthday celebration. Thank you Bob.
Bob was a great addition to my dad's 80th birthday celebration. Not only is he a talented artist, his fun personality made our party even more enjoyable!
Great drawings, very polite, punctual, and organized. He has a nice feature that included pre-printed gold personalization-great touch, thank you!
Absolutely the best Christmas gift I've ever bought for the staff. BobKat Art injected the fun and livity we needed after a challenging year. So grateful for gigsalad and the connection to Bob. Bob was very professional and the staff enjoyed the night. It turned out better than I anticipated. So talented. Would recommend BobKat Art without hesitation.
Bobkat was awesome! We had him for a communion party and everyone loved his drawings. A big hit!
BobKat Art was a big hit at our Christmas Party. Bob was a lot of fun and everyone participated. We had many positive comments from our staff and guests. I would recommend BobKat Art without reservation.
Bob was easy to work with, proactive, and very supportive of my book signing event. Customers were thrilled with their caricatures. Bob included my book title on each paper making the drawing an excellent memento of the event. I would definitely partner with him again!
Bob was a wonderful addition to our Harvest Dinner Dance. He is a very talented artist, and as the night wore on, he had a small crowd gathered around him, admiring his caricature skills. He is professional and has great interaction with everyone. He's highly recommended!
Mr. Anderson showed up on time ready to draw. He was friendly, professional, and best of all - he made all of his subjects happy with his wonderful caricatures. He was the hit of the part as far as I'm concerned. Would I hire his services again? You betcha! Would I recommend him to friends and family? Absolutely. Great job, Bob!
Bob worked our 2014 Grosse Pointe North All Night Party doing caricatures of the graduates and did a great job. He is very gregarious and knows how to relate to the kids. His caricatures are excellent and he created some nice keepsakes for the kids. Bob was punctual, professional and a super nice guy! Highly recommend him.
Bob was AMAZING at my sons birthday party. My guests had a BLAST with him and I got nothing but great reviews after the party. I will def be a hiring Bob for a future event. I would recommend Bob for your next gathering. Soo worth it!!
I have used BobKat Art on several occasions now, and for different reasons, and can't say enough great things about him. Bob was hired by the dealership that I work for, BMW of Rochester Hills, to draw caricatures of our customers for a ride and drive event we were having, and was also consigned by us to have some signage made. On all occasions, he has been extremely professional, timely, personable with our customers and employees, and a pleasure to work with. I personally had Bob draw 5 caricatures of friends and family that I gave as Christmas presents this year, and let me tell you, everyone loved them. If you are looking for a "WOW" effect, whether it is his phenomenal talent as a Caricature Artist or his knack for getting any printing job done (signage, murals, letterhead, business cards etc.), look no further. Bob Anderson, aka BobKat Art, is your connection.
Price Range: $125/hr.

What to Expect
I can set up my easel in any area of your event. I will need a chair for myself and one or two chairs for my subjects that I'll be drawing. An electrical outlet is helpful to plug in a couple of small lamps. Typically a line will form and guests will congregate to watch me draw and to watch their friends and fellow party guests being drawn. It is often a lively group.
I am a caricature artist and have been professionally drawing faces from photos and events for over 35 years. I will arrive at your event with my easel and draw quick faces of guests. I do not take up much room. Typically, I will draw faces in black and white and typically on 8-1/2" by 11" card stock with a plastic bag for the finished art - but I can draw on larger paper and/or in color and/or with bodies if so desired. I can draw up to 12 faces in an hour ( and have drawn as many as 15 kids in an hour ) and regardless of everyone getting their face drawn or not it has proven to be an entertaining aspect of the evening just to watch.
Additional Booking Notes
An electrical power source to plug in two small lamps is helpful. Without electricity, I can use battery operated lamps if necessary. When drawing outside, it is good to have some shelter from the elements whether shade from the hot sun or a tent or canopy from the potential for wet weather. Supplying 2 or 3 chairs is helpful.
