I'm a local Los Angeles caricature artist available for party bookings in the southern California area. I have a BFA in Illustration/animation from the Academy of Art College San Francisco and been drawing since I was a kid. I really enjoy creating interest in my artwork and adding excitement to every party that I attend. I'm interested in Caricature art because it fulfills my creative /artistic needs as well as my interest in meeting new and interesting people. Caricaturing has been a integral part of my artistic life and I enjoy every moment of each personalized drawing that I create for each of my clients. I'm very adaptable and I've worked at small private parties with 20 guests to large events such as the Pomona Fairplex for a college dance with 300-400 guests. So if you have the need for a caricature artist for your event just let me know. Thank you.
Additional Booking Notes
I need very little as far as set up is concerned. If you have an event outdoors I would need ample shade (if during the day) and adequate light (if it's an evening event). And I would also need 3-4 chairs and (optional) a small table. I would bring my own easel,drawing supplies and paper so that will be covered.
