Caricatures, cartoons, comics...no matter what you call it the result are just plain family-friendly fun. Kurt has "gently"...and upon request..."not so gently" drawn and entertained thousands of adult and kids alike from corporations such as Boeing and Kelloggs to "little Cindy Lou Who who was no more than two". Refrigerator doors and office conference rooms all love Kurt's uniquely spot on caricatures.
Kurt's caricatures are individualized, head and shoulder, cartoon drawings done in black marker, colored pencil, or digitally produced that take only minutes to complete. Typical black marker caricatures take only 3 minutes. This is a great supplement to your event's activities.
We decided to book Kurt for our Wedding Reception and he was one of the best decisions we made in terms of vendors for the day. We had almost 140 guests and literally everyone in attendance was entertained and enjoying themselves immensely thanks to Kurt's talents. Our guests had a blast even just waiting in line near Kurt, chatting with him, and of course receiving a comical & fun party favor momento to remember the night by. Impressively too, every caricature I saw, I could identify by their face who they were exactly, thereby proving that Kurt's 27 years of experience really speaks for itself. I highly recommend booking him for your next event, he was a pleasure to work with and we're so glad we did!
Everyone was very pleased with their art! Kurt was very engaging and very funny! I would recommend hiring him.
Kurt was very professional and personable. He was very quick when drawing, yet every caricature was on point and he still was able to hold a personable conversation with the people he was drawing.
Having a caricaturist for our wedding was a great decision and all of our guests loved their not-so-traditional wedding favors! We can HIGHLY recommend Kurt Dreier for whatever event you might be looking for a caricaturist!
Response from Kurt Dreier Caricatures and Illustration:
Thank you Robert! I had a great time.
He did great at our event. Very friendly and creative. Provided great art in a timely manner.
Although we actually worked with Steve instead of Kurt, we had a fantastic time. Steve did such fantastic work. Thank you!
Kurt was very friendly and accommodating to what we wanted. He did a great job at my daughter's 16th birthday party and the girls attending enjoyed his wonderful drawings. He was super easy to work with. Thanks Kurt!
Kurt was amazing addition to our wedding reception last weekend. We booked only a few weeks before the event (last minute decision) and he was the highlight of the party! He was very personable with guests and they all had amazingly wonderful things to say about him and his work. If you are looking for a great artist who can work the crowd, look no further!
Kurt did a fantastic job at our wedding reception this past weekend. We didn't inform all of our guests ahead of time because we wanted it to be a surprise. Before we booked Kurt, we brought it up to some close family members who weren't crazy about the idea. It turns out everyone LOVED the caricatures, and they couldn't stop talking about how cool it was. Our guests mentioned how fun it was to talk to Kurt and how he drew them so well!
Awesome job!! Very professional and calm. Very nice with kids.
Having Kurt Dreier at our wedding reception as a caricature artist was the best idea we had! Everyone was so happy and entertained by Kurt and his talents. We had a WONDERFUL time and a lot of laughs. Kurt was so professional, yet very fun and respectful of everyone. We highly recommend him to anyone that is planning an event. We have had so many compliments of people happy with the evening. This was a great gift to give our guests as well. We hope that he had as much fun as we did!
Kurt is truly amazing! He added a special little something to our fundraiser! Our guests truly enjoyed themselves and had a wonderful time!!! He was a wonderful addition and so much fun to have! We will have him back for other events!
Our artist was excellent. Very talented and easy to work with. We had less than stellar weather for our outdoor event and he had a positive attitude the entire time.
Kurt was very professional and friendly. He arrived on time and did a great job with the kids and adults. We will have him back again.
Price Range: $130/hr - $225/hr traditional and digital
Gig Length: 120 - 480 minutes
What to Expect
I draw fast but without sacrificing likeness (18-22/hr black and white, 12-15/hr color). I realize that my fee is significant so you should expect me to work fast and hard. I don't take any breaks for the first two hours and then only a drink of water or a bathroom break for events longer than that. Although even at 22 faces an hour I will not probably draw all of your guests but I do feel that I entertain many more than I draw.
I also offer digital caricatures for an additional fee. Digital caricatures are caricatures drawn on the computer and displayed on a large 40" monitor or projector. The caricatures are then printed on the spot and can be emailed or downloaded to both your guests and the host as a memento of the evening. These are also in color as opposed to the traditional black and white caricature. These can also have pre made backgrounds if you so desire which helps move things along. That is just another option that I would be happy to talk to you about if you would like.
Kurt has been entertaining as a caricature artist for over 26 years. Kurt's caricatures are individualized, head and shoulder, cartoon drawings done in black marker, colored pencil, or digitally produced that take only minutes to complete. This is a great supplement to your event's activities.
Events such as :
Weddings Receptions, Trade Shows, Conventions, Special Promotional Events,
Proms and After-Proms, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, Retirement Parties, Holiday Parties,
and just about anywhere where you want to "draw" and entertain guests.
Types of Caricatures Available: Traditional Black and White Marker Drawings, Colored Art Stix and Marker Drawings, or Digital Caricatures drawn on the computer, displayed large screens or monitors, and printed on the spot!
Ask me about the numerous options available.
Some large corporate clients have included:
...and a host of private individual events and custom illustrations.
Additional Booking Notes
I am very self-sufficient but typically I need two chairs provided and a fun audience. I can provide lighting if necessary along with a 10' x 10' tent for outside events. Other than that relax in knowing that your guests will be entertained not only at your event but for years to come when they look at their caricature in their family room or office and fondly remember the great fun they had at your event.
