So your planning a party or an event, and you want your guests and attendees to have FUN and to be entertained. Plus you'd love for them to take home a keepsake memento from your event, that they'll cherish for years to come. Then you need to invite Russ Hogle - Caricature Artist~Entertiainer, better known as Cartoona Matata to perform at your party!

As Russ puts his pen to paper, a crowd will gather to watch and laugh along as their friends are immortalized in Cartoon likeness, while they wait eagerly to be the next "model"! Then after all of the FUN and excitement, your guests take home a party favor custom made for them, as a memory of your event that lasts forever!

You can check out samples of drawings from events where Cartoona Matata has attended and performed, as well as some videos capturing the action and reactions of some of the passed Cartoona Matata "models". Russ has been invited to draw "models" from newborns (the youngest being 3 weeks old!) to some nearly 100! He has not only enjoyed the experiences, but is extremely proud and honored to have been chosen to capture some of life's special moments for those "models" and their friends.

Cartoona Matata has been asked to entertin at a variety of parties and events, everything from Birthday Parties,Bat & Bar Mitzvahs, Wedding Receptions, Family Reunions, Company Picnics & Holiday Parties, College Campus Events, Business Trade Shows & Marketing Events, and even Dog Shows!! Yes Cartoona Matata draws Caricatures of Dogs and pets, we call them Pet-Catures!

Russ is a Gold Member of the International Society of Caricature Artists, where he has attended their annual conventions to perfect his craft, learning from some of the best Caricature Artists in the world! He is committed to being the best that he can be, providing top quality caricatures and entertainment for his clients.Simply put, Russ is passionate about his artwork and entertainment service that he provides. When watching him perform, you'll regualarly hear people commenting that, "he really seems to be LOVING what he's doing!". That's the passion!

In addition to drawing "Live" at events, Cartoona Matata also offers Custom Studio Caricature pieces made using photographs provided by clients. These types of drawings make GREAT gifts for all most any occasion, like Birthdays, Weddings, Anniversaries, Retirements, Job Promotions, Relocations, Employee Appreciation Awards, Graduations, and the list goes on. If it's something that someone is celebrating. then it's probably something that could be fun to give a Custom Caricature as a gift for!

Thanks, and I look forward to " 'Toonign You Up !!"

Russ was amazing, he had a huge line, and even stayed a half hour more than we originally had him scheduled for.

Cartoon Matata was very flexible in meeting the needs of our special event, even printing our logo and a special message on the bottom of each caricature sheet. The caricatures were excellent and lightened up the whole event. I would definitely recommend Cartoon Matata to friends and colleagues!
