I am the "Glamour Shots" caricaturist for women, the "Mad Magazine" artist for men and children will look like themselves only cuter, if possible! My subjects might request to look more handsome or attractive or even goofy-funny and will be delighted with the results.
My black and white drawings take five minutes or less per person and I airbrush my color drawings taking a few minutes more. I draw 12 to 15 faces per hour. I use heavy professional drawing paper and provide a protective plastic cover.
I also do Face and body paintings. I have over 20 years of experience including 3 summers at Mount Olympus in Wisconsin Dells. Please see my reviews from many happy customers.
Melody was very sweet and flexible and did both face painting and caricatures, which was nice. People liked her work. Unfortunately she was late and we missed about 40 minutes of our event. Her GPS took her a very strange route. Just wish she would have given me a heads up versus trying to track her down as people were waiting for her.
Melody was very personable and engaged with the partygoers. Her drawings were super cute and everyone enjoyed their pictures.
the caricuture i ordered never showed up and you send me a crappy face painter....
will never use this site again and will blast social media to never use this site ever.
POOR SEERVICE NOT EVEN A PHONE CALL ABOUT HE BAIT AND SWITCH!!
We had an appreciation party for our employees at Zander Solutions and we wanted to have something fun and different for the party. I had been at other events and saw how much fun it was to have a Caricature Artist there. I would recommend Melody! She was fun and very involved with the person or people she was working with. She had people lined up and so excited to have their picture done. She was so wonderful!! She really made our party special. Sara
Melody was so nice and drew such cute caricature drawings for my 10yr old son’s birthday party. She was quick and sweet. Thank you for sharing your talent with us!
Thanks for being available for our event. Everyone here at 2309 LOWE'S enjoyed your work.
I hired Melody for my husband's 40th Birthday. She was on time, Melody was a highlight of the party. Her pictures made everyone smile, the likeness of the guests were very accurate.
Melody did a great job at our Community Party.
I know mistakes happen. I know it was not done on purpose so part of me feels bad about this review, but i am also upset. My twins' first bday was a unique and special time. It is entirely true that i was booking the day of, but i was happy when i got 2 quotes. Unfortunately i went with the person who misread the date. Bad luck, but my guests got excited for nothing. It would've been an awesome thank you gift for them. I'm sure the lady does great work, but attention to detail (day of booking) is important. So i get my money back, as i should, but that doesn't make up for my dinner party not having that fun factor. I can't really even rate her so it's probably unfair...
Melody was delightful. She was on time, very easy to work with, great with the kids, and does beautiful work. Would definitely recommend her.
We are a senior community and booked Melody to provide her service during our annual Senior Prom. Our residents loved having this surprise addition to our event, and were thrilled with the drawings she did of them. Melody was on-time, super friendly, and contributed to a great party!
She showed up on time and was able to get all the kids face painted and even did a Caricature for my boys! Would use her again for another birthday party 😊
Our guests really seemed to enjoy their caricatures and many of them had multiple drawing done.
Melody was very nice and on time, but we were disappointed. All the information we read and saw was for COLOR Caricatures. Unfortunately all her drawings were black & white. The images didn't even come close to being able to recognize who the drawing was of. It was a cool idea but we were disappointed and would chose someone else for another event next time.
Response from Caricatures by Melody:
I was hired to draw black and white drawings and as usual everyone was happy with their drawing that evening to the point of staying and drawing beyond my hired time.
Melody was fun, and our employees enjoyed the caricatures. Thanks!
It was absolutely great i loved melody and her services.
Melody went above and beyond for us to make our residents event special. We enjoyed her very much!
She was good!
She was amazing! Everyone loved the caricatures that she did.
Pleasant experience. Feedback from the group was that we needed a little bit more time. Couple of people wanted drawings. Those that received drawings loved them

Influences & Inspiration
I have been influenced by my little sister, Rachel Walker Murphy, a very accomplished caricatist. I have also am in awe of Tom Richmond and, of course, MADD Magazine.
