FACES IN FOCUS - a full service event art and illustration company serving your area with 'on-the-nose' caricatures, 'elegant' portraits and 'a-cut-above' silhouettes.
Lothar Speer, known in certain circles also as "Da Renaissanz Man", has been "drawing crowds" for over 2 decades. He owns and operates one of Chicago land's premiere caricature retail locations and can provide multiple artists and talents for large events.
Having studied at the National Academies of Vienna and Basel, he earned a Master Degree in Fine Arts from Philadelphia's Pennsylvania Academy. Lothar enjoys working in a variety of artistic expressions: humorous traditional caricatures, full service digital caricatures (on-site print-outs, up-loads, CDs, giant plasma screen projections), dramatic fast full length people sketches, realistic Renaissance Style Portrait Sketches and amazing 3-D Silhouettes (an art form he invented).
He also belongs to an exclusive - and sometimes elusive - club of a handful of caricaturists, who - under duress - can produce a high quality caricature within one single lonely minute!
If paid, Lothar is charming, funny and highly entertaining. Those who had the good fortune of having witnessed his performances happily attest to his outstanding "chair-side manner".
In his studio, he executes high detail customized caricature and portrait illustrations to acknowledge individuals or groups for their professional accomplishments or as gift items for weddings, mitzvahs and other family functions.
