From New Orleans all the way to Destin, Florida....I DRAW a crowd!
I've taken the art of event caricatures to the next level with my Caricatures with Character!
Your guests will receive a black & white 8.5 x 11" Cartoon Character headshot (singles or couples....adults and children) pre-imprinted with your color event icon custom designed by me. The art is drawn with a black sharpie pen on white premium vellum hi-bright card stock and inserted in a clear protective sleeve.
Along with event caricatures for guests, I can do an advanced custom color caricature of the guest of honor (bride & groom, birthday girl or boy etc...).

Tim and I discussed the plan about 2 days prior to the event, he asked all the right questions and showed up a few minutes ahead of schedule to set up and acclimate. This was for a large family reunion....Tim engaged with all the guests and they all loved him! He was fun and did a great job capturing the excitement of the event! Thanks, Tim!
Tim showed up during a bit of chaos, as our venue was in preparation for a debutante party. He was able to find a person to give him some direction while his point of contact was busy dealing with an unforeseen emergency. In minutes, he was set up and ready for our guests. I was not formally introduced to him, however, I met him like any other guest, when I sat for a caricature. He didn't know I was the host. He was fun and friendly and I was very happy with his drawing. Would absolutely book again.
Response from Caricatures by Tim Banfell:
This was such a fun event to do! It had so much love extended from the family to their guests and everyone was so kind and complimentary to me. It was a pleasure working for Lisa on this special occasion.
Great service , guest loved him !!
Tim did an excellent job and exceeded my expectations at my wife's surprise 40th birthday party. He was very professional and did his best to meet the huge demand for his services at my party. Everyone had a great time and enjoyed his services. Tim was very reasonable and very professional.
Tim's set up drew a attention to our booth. Once guests were seated he mad them feel very comfortable by engaging them in conversation as he drew their caricature. The pre-drawn body was so cute! He created exactly what we asked him to do and he included our logo in color. It really jumped off the page since the erst was in black and white. He was able to process our guests FAST. It was one of the best give-aways I ever used. We plan on using Tim at our next trade show in Orlando!
