Im available to draw caricatures at any party or event. Many people have told me how much my caricatures look the actual person. I can do a really flattering drawing or an outrageous picture.
I also draw “Pop-Art Portraits”, or what some people call comic-book style portraits similar to the style of retro comic books. I am very inspired by vintage pop art and have worked for years to emulate that style.
With either style I strive to capture each individual. I don’t draw people in a mechanical/formulaic style for the sake of quantity.
Gift Caricatures: You, Your Friend, Family and Pets!
This was our first time hiring someone as in-booth entertainment and I searched long and hard before I decided to go with Roger. Roger was extremely professional from the beginning to the end of this whole process and made this a breeze, allowing me to focus on other parts of the event.
When the event day finally came, I was running around and completely forgot to check in with Roger, luckily he was on top of everything and showed up right on time. His caricatures were very spot on and everyone loved having their caricature portraits drawn by Roger. He was engaging, funny, and very fast with each portrait. We can't wait to hire Roger, as we know with him in our booth it will be a successful event.
Roger is an amazing artist!! He showed up on time ,very professional, and extremely patient.
The artist was very polite and professional. I definitely recommend his service. My guest were very pleased with their portraits.
Roger was on time and did a fantastic job. Can't tell you how many caricatures he did because he was so fast. Everyone had a great time and was pleased with his drawings of them. He made sure I got a caricature of myself too. Loved it. Thank you very much Roger. A+++ Well done!
Roger did a great job with our small birthday party. He was able to fit in a lot of detail and requests for everyone and they were all delighted with the outcome.
We had a great experience with Roger doing caricatures for our guests at my husbands 50th Bday party. He arrived on time , set up , and immediately started working. Right before he was ending his session he made it a point to look for my husband and I to make sure we got one done before he left. I appreciated his thoughtfulness . All our guests were happy and complimented how excellent he captured their likeness.
He is a very talented artist!
My guest really enjoyed their drawings and the artist worked great with the little ones. I definitely would recommend Roger to others.
Roger was communicative, on time, friendly and did great work. I would certainly recommend him to anyone looking to add a little creativty to their event!
Roger was amazing! His skills and professional work ethics were amazing! He arrived at the time he said and by the way it was raining, my party was back in January 2017. He was even sick and worked like he wasn't! Everyone loved his drawings so much so that my sister in law used him for a city event for the city of Pico Rivera and he was loved and appreciated by all ! Thankyou Roger sorry for not posting sooner! I highly recommend Roger and will definitely use him again 😘😉💕😎🍻
Roger showed up to my birthday party early to ensure that he could start at the exact time I had booked. He did a great job with everyone's caricatures, and also made sure he got to everyone before leaving. He was definitely a hit with the whole crowd!
Response from Caricature Art of Roger:
Thank you very much! It was a great crowd and a fun event.
I hired Roger for an event at work, and he was incredible! Roger was kind, professional, and did amazing work. Would hire him again!
Response from Caricature Art of Roger:
Impatient. Was rushing because he had another event after us. Should Improve social skills
Response from Caricature Art of Roger:
This is inaccurate, this client mis-communicated about their event . I had asked and cleared it with them about the possibility of starting a little earlier and they said yes. I did this because I had another event request. So I booked the other event, because I really need the income. She then changes her mind long after the fact about starting early, totally disregarding what we discussed. She had plenty of time and opportunity to let me know she didnt want to change the time. We then worked it out and I arrived at the event very early, but because the entire event was not properly planned they got their dinner service started late. And since we agreed to shorten my time, I had to get going when my time was up. Thats how it works, when times up, I pack up. but they kept wanting me to keep drawing after the end time. Oh and they still loved their drawings, so how is this a 1 star review? Notice, she doesn't give much clarification about what happened. Its not my fault their event was badly planned, and don't get to dump the blame on me for everything going wrong. And a person who doesn't eve know me doesn't get to be the judge of my social skills. Simply being impatient, if that was true doesn't qualify as a 1 star. This review has been disputed on Gigsalad.
He was easy to work with and his art was amazing.
We had Caricature Art of Roger over for a late Sunday afternoon family gathering. We had all ages here...12 - 70. Everyone loved their caricature art!
Roger was great at communication during my booking and prior to our gathering.
He arrived a little early to set up and was ready to go on time. He was very professional. We would definitely hire him again.
Roger was prompt and was able to set up in our entryway. He brought his own lighting and was able to accommodate everyone who wanted a caricature of themselves. He even did my puppy with my husband and me. Everyone enjoyed how closely he was able to sketch each of them.
We truly enjoyed having Roger at our party and will definitely do this again.
Roger was very professional and easy to work with! Everyone loved him at the party...
Roger is very prompt, professional and great artist. Everyone enjoyed his services.
We thank Roger for making our sons 5th Birthday even more memorable! He arrived before scheduled time and was very professional. Everyone enjoyed his talent!
I WAS VERY HAPPY WITH THE CARICATURE CAME EARLY VERY PROFESSIONAL. THIS WAS MY FIRST TIME BOOKING ANYONE FOR A EVENT AND I WAS VERY PLEASED HAPPY GUESS. AND ALSO GREAT PARTY FAVOR FOR MY GUESS TO TAKE HOME . THANK YOU AGAIN WILL MOST DIFFENTLY WILL BE BOOKING AGAIN FOR MY NEXT EVENT....
Response from Caricature Art of Roger:
Thank you so much! It was a fun party, wish I could have stayed longer!
Rodger was very professional! Arrived early and was set up and ready to go before the agreed about time. He was polite and friendly. I really enjoyed his art word and services. Would definitely use him again for another function.
I took a chance in hiring an artist for my party online, without meeting in person. What a pleasant surprise!! Seriously, He was the BEST character artist I have seen! Each of 30 guests actually looked like their sketch. Well worth the money as this was the hit of the party. He offered black and white or colored sketches. I ordered the black and white because of the time crunch. It takes awhile to get through the guest line. I will hire Roger in the future.
Roger was punctual, communicated really well before the event. My guests and I were extremely happy with his drawing skills and rate of drawing (he was good & fast). Pleasant personality, I would highly recommend him for your next event and will definitely have him at my future parties.
We asked him to do a surprise project and he answered our call on the first shot and followed through. Very reliable
Roger was prompt and called before and after. Guests loved his work.
I will be hiring him again.
Roger came to our 6th grade graduation party. He was on time, brought all of
his supplies and was ready to go when the party started. He did caricatures in black and white and did a great job! The caricatures were really fun!
Roger was a hit at my daughter's two year/ baptism party. He was on time very professional and everyone loved him. I would definitely hire him again.
I was extremely pleased with Roger's work. His drawings were more like portraits than cartoons. He has an amazing talent. I will definitely hire him again for any future parties/events I 'll have in the future.
Roger provided his caricature services for 4 hours at a first birthday party. He arrived on time and did a great job drawing our guests' faces. He was a very hard worker. Would hire him again for a future event! Thanks, Roger for making my daughter's birthday extra special.
Roger is a wonderful artist and worked well with our students!
What to Expect
I arrive usually 20-30 minutes early to setup my drawing area. When I am a ready to draw I usually draw people first come first serve. My drawings can be done in any theme requested and can be either black and white or color. Please keep in mind if purchaser/event planner wants themes and/or color on each drawing, I will be drawing much less per than if I was just drawing black and white faces.
I tend to use a high quality 11 x 17 inch paper and I have drawn up to 8 faces on one sheet. If a bigger group drawing is desired, please request early on so I can get appropriate supplies in advance.
If a break is needed, I will always draw for the full time that was quoted for the hourly rate, even if I stay later than originally requested to complete the full drawing time.
I have been drawing Caricatures since 2003, having spent several years drawing at major theme parks such as Knott's Berry Farm and Universal Studios Hollywood. I have drawn thousands of caricatures of people from all over the world. I have also drawn at many local fairs and festivals such as the Long Beach Lobster Festival. I have also drawn gift caricatures for Engineers and Executives at Toyota motor company for 7 years.
Additional Booking Notes
If the event is to take place at night, I would need to be in vicinity of an electrical outlet for my lights or be provided with sufficient lighting at the event.
