"the Quality Artist"
Beautifully funny, quick, and accurate caricatures for any event by highly-acclaimed artist Damon Renthrope. With 15+ years experience, Damon captures a complete likeness with a huge amount of fun, in a small amount of time. Completing each drawing in 2-5 minutes, Damon offers each guest if they'd prefer a "cute" or a "funny", and each is presented with a professional piece of art, worth framing.
Damon has been into art for as far as he could remember, going all the way back to a scribbling 3-year-old. In '98, fascinated by a caricaturist at a Planet Hollywood, he jumped into caricature art full swing, and ever since. He's influenced by caricature giants such as Al Hirschfeld, Sebastian Kruger, Bill Waterson, and pop artists such as Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Studying at SDSU, SDCC, and SDMC, his formal fine art and graphic design training offers a keen insight to exactly what it takes to create a streamlined piece of art that people would love.
Since then, he's enjoyed the patronage of such names as MTV, Nascar, Paramount Studios, Red Bull, Tiger Woods, Rohan Marley (the Bob Marley family), Mandy Moore, Johnny Knoxville, Rob Dyrdek, and others. In addition, he is a published children's book illustrator, Oil painting artist, and muralist.
He is very flexible to any theme or event, and absolutely loves drawing and working with people of all ages. You'll love your experience, and you'll love the way you look as a caricature from Damon.
