Rob Smith, Jr. is a nationally recognized, award winning cartoonist and caricaturist who has been performing as a professional caricaturist since 1979 for corporate and private parties.

Rob entertains with caricatures, creating a memorable cartoon depicting each person in a world uniquely their own ... revealing the humor in their personality to everyone watching! Rob's interviewing and rapport skills with guests lead to extremely personalized caricatures..."He captures the soul of you," say customers.

Rob's talent is unlike what you'll normally encounter in the caricature world, but he works with the blazing speed of a traditional caricaturist and captures flattering likenesses that make a person look their best - HE'S NOT EXAGGERATING! No big noses or ears ... it's an illustrated version of you!

Rob has been creating exciting caricatures for 35 plus years at everywhere from Disney World to too many to count professional and private parties. His client list just in the past few years include: Boys and Girls Town, City of Orlando, Coty, Inc., Dr. P. Phillips Hospital, Ducati, Florida Hospital, Florida Trail Association, GrayRobinson, P.A., Orlando Regional Medical Center, PepsiCo, Travelers Insurance, etc., etc.

Many, many churches and medical organizations across Florida have also asked Rob to entertain at their events. Also various divisions of the State of Florida and cities and counties throughout Florida.

Rob is proud of his being fortunate to be able to travel for the USO, with fellow cartoonists, and entertain our troops across the country and around the world.

Outside of caricature, Rob is an editorial cartoonist seen nationally and a book and advertising illustrator. He also has 'Swampy's Florida' to help people learn about Florida travel opportunities, history education and fun! 'Swampy's Florida' currently incorporates 14 books, 39 prints, 2 DVDs and a series of greeting cards. Rob also serves in many, many organizations across Florida involving historical, environmental and other issues.

Rob was great, a lot of people loved their caricature drawing. Only thing was we wished he drew more than one person at a time. But other than that his work is awesome!

Cartoons By Rob Smith, Jr.’s Response:

Luis, Thank you for having me at your wedding! I love the Kapok Tree! I make sure I speak to each person, as I did with you, that hires me as soon as I can after a booking to go over all I do to add to the event. We spoke again about what I do a few weeks before the wedding. I always express how I actually draw people and don't do the simple formula work at the tourist places. I mentioned, since I actually draw the person, I'm unable to draw multiple people. That's how I get the best likeness possible and make each drawing very special to each person. Thank you all again! - Rob

Third time hiring Rob Smith Jr. To sketch caricatures at our most recent retirement party. He was a great conversationalist amongst our guests and they were able to take home a special drawing of themselves. We have had Rob to a special project for us a gift to someone, plus a wedding rehearsal. After 25 years we still have our caricatures. Thank you Rob, for your awesome talent that you share with others.
