The fun begins with the first stroke of my marker and laughter soon follows. I do more than just make the drawing look like you; I turn up the volume by including that special aspect of your personality that
people will recognize. Your guest will be taking home a little piece of the party to be enjoyed for years to come.
I always leave 'em laughing.
Ernest, was on time and made everyone fill comfortable and did a caricature of all my guest who wanted one.
Thank you Ernest for a job well done!
Ernest was one of the highlights of my event. His work is amazing and I will definitely be using him again. My only concern was all of my guests didn't get a drawing and there were a few people asking.
Ernest completed sketches during cocktail time and my dinner party and my guests loved it!
Prompt, professional, and accommodating. Loved his interactions with the children and his impeccable work.
Would recommend,very professional.
He was timely, well dressed and friendly! Worked great with all age ranges at a 40 guest family reunion and genuinely seemed to love what he was doing! He has the 4 year olds and the 80 year olds all laughing and loving the art! All pieces turned out wonderful- highly recommend!
Ernest was timely and worked well with the variety of attendees including kids. Everyone loved the art which is clear as they are posted around the office.
Expertise - knew what he was doing, no bad pic and kept a good pace
Communication- we worked well together prior and staff enjoyed his table
Professionalism- asked what was appropriate for the occasion and kept a smile on his face
Value - thumbs up better than a photo booth
Adaptability - last minute changes, handled them like a champ
Price Range: $135.00 per hour. 2 hour minimum.
What to Expect
You'll laugh at my drawings of your friends and family then you'll laugh at a drawing of yourself.
I grew up in a great time of art and animation. My artistic style is influenced by classic Disney animation like Beauty and the Beast and the Little Mermaid. The genius of the Looney Tunes, Hanna Barbara cartoons and a local kid's show called Cartoon Town was more than enough to boost a young boy's love for art to the next level. I graduated from Columbia College with a B.A. in Advertising Graphics and have been working as a professional artist for years.
I always arrive to an event 30 minutes early and dressed for the theme or occasion. I'm polite and professional. I great at entertaining all age groups. I bring my own table and lights. All I need from the client are chairs and a shaded area if outdoors.
