Phathead Caricatures

Why book Phathead Caricatures?

Mike G is a professional caricature artist in Delaware county, PA. He receieved his formal art training at the Hussian School of Art in Philadelphia. After that he worked at Walt Disney World as a caricature artist until 2005 when decided to relocate back to Pennsylvania. Mike is excited and ready to draw all of your guests at your next event!




Mike was wonderful. Not only is he very talented, but during lulls he was searching out people to draw. Mike was very flexible with our scheduled time and stayed longer to accomodate everyone. Would not hesitate to hire him again for another function.

Thrilled with the service

We hired Phathead Caricatures for my 8 year old daughter's end of school party. We wanted the kids to be able to leave the party with something to help them remember the event. We had well over the 30 guests we thought we would have. Michael accommodated everyone that wanted a caricature - in color! He was super creative working in the interests of each child (and adult). Our party was more than 6 hours long and Michael took only a tiny break to eat halfway through the party - I don't know how he did it. When it was getting close to the end of the party and it was clear that we had way more guests than we expected, Michael gave me several options to consider to make sure that each guest that wanted one got their picture drawn.

Unlike some other caricature artists I was considering, Michael's drawings captured the 'cute' features in everyone, which both my daughter and I loved. It was amazing to watch him work!

Michael did arrive a little bit late, but made up for it by staying a little longer. I called Michael the day before the party to confirm and it's a good thing I did because he had the wrong address listed for me. Perhaps he would have called me to confirm the address if I hadn't called him, but I don't know this for sure.

Despite the logistical issues, we were thrilled overall with Phathead Caricatures' service and would happily hire him again.
