I draw black and white caricature/portraits of your guests in ink. I work fast. Each caricature takes around three minutes. Color caricatures take about ten minutes. I can draw groups, kids and pets. I don't make cruel caricatures. I like people to smile rather than cry.
I can also do children parties, I can draw color themed drawings of everyone or I can bring pencils and paper and give them an hour lesson on how to draw cartoons.
My background is in Hollywood animation studios where animators were always caricaturing each other.
Gene not only was early to setup and he was willing to help. He made everyone feel relaxed and calm when doing the drawings. People loved his humor and his speed. As the hiring manager for the event he was over communicative and confirmed several times of the event.
Gene traveled 3 hours each way for Chico High School's Sober Grad Night and worked all night drawing great caricatures for our graduates! Everything about his work was great!! Thanks, Gene!!
It was a fun addition to our birthday party
Gene was very prompt on all communications leading up to the event. His rates were very reasonable. He arrived ahead time, was flexible to our needs, drew lovely caricatures and taught 8, 9-year-olds how to draw animation creatures. They had a lot of fun with Gene..I'd highly recommend him!
Gene was responsive to all emails and answered quickly. He is very professional and showed up at the exact time he was supposed to. Everyone had such a great time, getting drawn as a caricature, he made our party very enjoyable. Gene is so talented he drew everyone in 3 min ! He definitely made everyone smile and I would hire him again. I recommend Gene 100% and will be booking him for any future parties I have. Thanks Gene!
Gene came on time, and was really professional and funny. My guests loved the caricatures. I highly recommend his services.
Our party was made special with Gene
Gene was very easy to work with, very friendly, and the guests at my sons party thoroughly enjoyed having him there. I would recommend if you are looking for an affordable caricaturist.
We had 60 people over for my daughter’s engagement party. Everyone got a caricature and enjoyed their interaction with Gene. Gene went above and Beyond to make this a fun time for all. We had young and old. Gene was great with all!
I hired Gene to be a caricaturist at my moms surprise dinner party. I wanted something different that would really be a conversation piece so I decided that a caricaturist was a great option. I saw Genes’ work and I was beyond impressed he was such an amazing person to work with and had just the sweetest heart and personality. Everyone loved him & was super impressed. I am so proud to say that he was apart of our party and he really made it amazing. He arrived early everything was set up and he’s a true gem! I will 100% be working with Gene again!

What to Expect
I can draw black and white ink caricatures in three minutes. If you have a large crowd at your event, you will definitely get your money's worth. I roll them up and rubber band them so you can get them home in one piece. I don't draw cruel caricatures. Nobody had ever had plastic surgery after I drew their caricature. I like making people smile rather than cry. I have been invited to draw caricatures at several senior gatherings and I have been known to leave out some wrinkles and add some hair to the drawings.
