What to Expect
Expect laughs and exaggerated caricatures of you and your guests. Drew can do full color caricatures but usually does black and white caricatures with grey shading at parties to save time. However he is willing to do full color and backgrounds with no extra charge. Drew draws with only the best tools such as an easel filled with premium prismacolor art stix and either a copic marker or a crayola conicle marker. He uses these materials because these are the industry standard and are non-toxic and safe for all guests. Drew is friendly and wants your guest to have a good experience and will usually chat with them while they are drawing to keep them from getting nervous or bored. Drew also can provide rubber bands to keep your caricatures from getting ruined or smeared with cake or other delicious party cuisine. Drew can also provide a center piece caricature upon request for an extra charge.
Drew first learned about caricatures when a professor of his asked if he would be interested in attending a free caricature workshop at The Art Institute of California San Diego where he was studying animation. Drew was amazed at the art and artists he met at the workshop and at the end of the workshop when a panel of hiring managers from Sea World asked if anyone would like to apply for a position at their park for the summer, Drew was the first to raise his hand. Drew honed his skills over three years working at Sea World park drawing kids and adults sitting on the back of whales, surfing giant cartoon waves or showing off their pecs as musclemen or bikini babes on the beach. Although Drew loved the crowds, the smell of hot popcorn and chicken fingers and soggy splash zoned sneakers, he jumped at a chance to do private events for a local entertainment company.
From there Drew learned how to draw fast as he would have guests lined up to get a caricature before the birthday boy or girl handed out goody bags and cake. He drew at the bay, at the Palm restaurant, at the Diamond Tower downtown , even on second base at Petco Park! Drew drew everywhere you could draw.
After Drew graduated from college with a bachelors degree in animation he headed to Hollywood to work in show business. Even though he had some success working on movies as a visual effects animator, there was something missing. He missed the smell of hot dogs and popcorn, the laughs and snickers from the audience behind him and more than that he missed the smiles and memories he made with the people he drew. So Drew packed his bags and went back to San Diego, got a cool new haircut and is ready to draw at your party and help create long lasting memories for you and your guests!! Book him today!!
