Rob's interviewing and rapport skills with guests lead to extremely personalized caricatures..."He captures the soul of you," say customers.

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.

We just can't believe our luck in finding Rob for our event! The connection that he established with the residents of our senior community was really powerful, as he quickly captured their interests and personalities in their sketch portraits. Everyone loved him and his work brought smiles and laughter to the folks attending. Before, during and after the event, Rob's communication and professionalism were outstanding. We would definitely hire him again, and certainly recommend him for your event with five stars. We couldn't be more pleased. Thanks, Rob, for being here and making our event a success.

Rob was a hit at my brunch wedding reception. He is extremely talented and personable with his subjects. As he is interacting with them and gets to know a little about them, he includes something unique and personal to the subject in their drawing. Prior to arriving at our reception, Rob had a color drawing of me and my (then) fiancé he'd drawn from photos we sent to him. It was fantastic! Thank you, Rob for drawing for our event. I highly recommend you! ??

We hired Rob Smith, Jr. for our wedding reception in late February and he was a hit! Our guests loved him! He took the time to ask each guest questions about themselves and customized their drawing to reflect each of their unique personalities and interests. It was so much fun looking at everyone's drawing and figuring out what they must have told him. He was very professional and responsive and arrived to our reception way ahead of time to ensure he was set up and ready to go. His price was beyond reasonable and everyone thought having a caricaturist was such a fun and unique alternative to the usual wedding photo booth. We recommend Rob Smith, Jr. 100%!
