Mike and his father, Martin are a caricature duo. Since 1975 Martin has drawn and since 1994 Mike Rosenthal has drawn profile caricatures (side views) at up to 30 faces/HR. In all these years Mike has never seen someone faster. Mike's live caricatures are more than just fun drawings as a memento for your event but an experience. He can entertain your guests while drawing them with his charisma, extraverted "life of the party demeanor" and witty banter, and enhances beauty and does NOT draw with exaggeration. Whether it be couples at your party, co-workers or groups it really is unique that a caricaturist can draw so many people all together.
With customized backgrounds created specifically for your event, your clients will take a piece of your event with them as memorabilia and remember your corporate party above all others. No other caricaturist in the Bay Area can draw as many of your guests.
But don't take my word for it, check out some of my YELP reviews :

"Michael did caricatures for our daughters first birthday. He showed up early to set-up and was extremely nice and personable to all of our guests. The caricatures turned out great and it was something fun that all of the kids and adults could participate in and enjoy. I would highly recommend Michael for your next party!"

"Had Michael and his partner for our company party last night -- In the course of 90 minutes, they had done every staffer (90 of us!) and had time for couples, etc. They were extremely professional, courteous and friendly. Big thing in my book? They were prompt (ready and waiting when our group swept into the room). Did I mention that they are extremely talented? They absolutely ROCK!! If you're looking for that extra "something" for your party, book these guys!"

"We hired Mike for our department holiday luncheon and everyone loved him! He showed up on time, was very personable, and made each person sitting in his chair very comfortable and at ease. And his caricatures are great! He really focuses on making you look good as opposed to exaggerating features and making you look funny. I think everyone really appreciated that. I know I did! I will definitely be passing along his information to everyone interested in some great entertainment at their next function. Hire Mike, you won't be disappointed!"

"Mike is awesome! I hired him to draw for my wedding and he was professional, punctual and quick. He was able to draw all my guest with little wait time. He was a big hit with the adults and children and created a fun atmosphere. Mike even pre-printed my husband and I's name on his drawing paper.. which made for a great wedding favor! He made my wedding day even more spectacular. Highly recomend Mike for your next party or event."
We hired Michael for our daughter's first birthday party and he was a hit with both the adults and the kids. He was friendly, prepared, entertaining and FAST. He came early and set up before the party started and was very easy to work with. Highly recommend him as a caricature artist! 4/29/2013
"My company hired Michael for two events geared toward referral sources, and he was a major hit. Michael is very talented, but his presence goes beyond just drawing great pictures. He is highly engaging, funny, and entertaining. Michael has a way of making the 'subjects' very comfortable, and they always enjoy the process. In a business/vendor setting, standing out is what it's all about. At both of these events, we were the stars because of the presence that Michael brought with his exceptional service. He is also lightning fast - it's unbelievable!" - Joseph Z.

"Michael set up his caricature station at our reception for our wedding and he was a big hit. Being the bride and groom, we were shuttled around for photos and other activities at the time, and so we were not there in time to actually see Michael in action, but we heard from many of our guests that the activity was a real hit. Despite the fact that we booked him at the very last minute (within the week of the wedding), Michael was very professional and prepared for the day-of. Added a great little touch to our reception activities, and we felt very fortunate that Michael happened to be available that afternoon. Thank you, Michael! Made the day even more memorable for our guests, both young and old."

"We hired Michael to be part of a fair we hosted for students. He is friendly and outgoing, so he gets people to relax and get their caricature done. He was very professional and I would recommend him. Michael's participation made the event much more fun."
