Don was the hit of the night at our nearly 400 person corporate event on June 2nd. Don had asked me ahead of time if I thought I might want to keep him on longer then I originally anticipated, as the party had been overly scheduled and we had him until dinner time I had said no. Needless to say I regretted this decision as guests were forgoing dinner just to have a chance to have their image drawn by Don. He did an incredible job and many of the guests I spoke to about him mentioned that they intended to hire him for their own events. I would HIGHLY suggest you hire Don for your event and when he asks if you want him for longer then you think you do...SAY YES!
Don came on a busy train Sunday for us and kids were excited to have their carticature done! Would hire again!
Don was amazing. There was a constant line of people looking to have their caricature done. We had kids and adults go up multiple times! I wouldn't hesitate to reach out to Don again for future parties.
Response from Partoons: Caricatures by Don Landgren Jr.:
Thanks for the kind words. A fun crowd all around!
Attended a party that Don did caricatures. He made everyone feel relaxed, laugh and we came home with a picture nice enough for framing. He is very personable and fun.
We hired Don in for our carousel themed wedding reception and he both outshown and out performed all othe entertainers we brought in. Don was pleasant, professional, and just all around spectacular. he offered us a range of prices and customizable options that put our wedding favors over the top! Although I feel bad he never got to experience our yummy food, the fact that he had a line all night says enough about his talents!!! Wish I could bring him to every event I hold! Thank you!
Great artist and a hard worker...well worth the money
I was exceptionally pleased with the artistic caricature ability that Don presented at my daughter's sweet 16 party. Don was not only kind, his professional manner showed how true he was to his work. Don worked quickly while still producing quality work. He made everyone happy about the funny faces he created of them. Both, the young and the bitterly old guests enjoyed his work. The rate was reasonable and I would definitely consider having Don draw caricatures at my next function.

What to Expect
I set up my easel so the kids can gather and watch as the caricatures are drawn. Watching the creative process adds a fun level of entertainment as everyone jokes, laughs and comments.
I can draw 15 to 18 B&W single heads and bodies and 10-14 color single heads and bodies per hour. Younger children age 5 and under can reduce the number of caricatures per hour. I draw on 11" x 14" card stock and offer plastic sleeves to protect the finished caricature.
It's best have me come after the start of the party. I set up in a central location with access to a plug for my lights if its dark and I require two to three chairs.
I gather all the kids, introduce myself and tell them my two rules, then start drawing. I encourage them to watch and usually let the person being drawn choose the next 'victim.' As long as there's someone to replace the next kid in the chair it moves along quickly and I can draw the higher number per hour.
I usually begin with a joke drawing to get the kids laughing and interacting. I sometimes I intersperse some other joke drawings depending on the conversations and banter of the kids.
All parties are different, but the kids especially the girls love it. There's usually some budding artists who will stand next to me the whole time enthralled with the process.
