NEWS!! - Adam was recently awarded the title of PARTY ARTIST OF THE YEAR by the International Society of Caricature Artists (ISCA), the premier organization for caricature artists world wide. 188 caricature artists from all over the world attended and competed at the annual convention in November. Around 50 artists participated in the Live Caricature Party Art Competition. Adam did 26 drawings in his regular style in 30 minutes and was voted #1 by his peers who attended.
About the artist/owner: Adam Pate is the originator of the 60 Second Speed Sketch Caricature and he draws more people per hour than any other caricature artist in the world. He can draw up to 200 guests at a typical wedding reception type of event, while strolling from table to table. He also encourages participants to watch him draw over his shoulder and TIME HIM as part of the performance. Adam has trained 2 other artists to do a similar performance. They are the only other artists in the world that do this kind of performance.
Adam does Festival Style Caricatures like other artists as well, but he also personally offers some other very unique services that you will not find anywhere else:
Digital Caricatures with many display and printing options
Pre-Printed Paper (with bodies, themes, backgrounds, logos, messages, ads, etc...)
5 Minute Quick Sketch Portraits, (Faces or Full Body: Front or Back, Color or b/w)
Silhouettes. 3D Hand Cut or 2D Drawn On Paper or Digital.
Life (Drawing) of the Party Sketches- Incorporate your entire party into one picture
Group Caricatures For Large or Small Groups into a Large Drawing.
Drawings of Pets and Posessions
Oversized Caricatures, Sketches or Other Artwork
Full Color Live Mural Painting or Themed Speed Painting
Illustration For Party Props From Photos; like sign in boards, stationary and images for other fun entertainment options (Images will also be added to the back of the sketch paper if he is hired to draw Speed Sketches at your event)
Adam represents a few very exceptional novelty artists as well. These entertainers do what they do better than anyone Adam has seen in his 25+ years of experience and are definitely not just whoever is "cheap", "local" and "available". Adam takes great pride in his work and his professional relationships with other vendors. Only the best will do. You can count on it.
Face Painter, Airbrush Tattoo Artist, Henna Artist, Glitter Tattoo Artist, Balloon Artist, Clowns, Magicians, Illusionist, Comedians, Blues Singer, Cover Band, Original Acoustic Songwriter Singer, Tarot Card Reader and a few other ...Unique... acts that might interest you if you really are looking for something fun and different.
You may notice that in most cases, we charge a little bit more than most artists in the "local party" market. In this case, you truly do get what you pay for. For instance, because he can draw 3-5 TIMES AS MANY caricatures, Adam charges just a bit more for his Speed Sketches. If you actually break the price down per person served, you'll see that the price is actually a bargain compared to Adam's 'competition' (including a photobooth if you really want to go there!). Adam and most FunDiff entertainers are available to travel anywhere in the country. Several have been featured on popular syndicated TV shows and won awards in their fields.
Studio gift drawings, illustrations and graphic artwork can be drawn from emailed photos of people, pets and belongings, for individual awards, group drawings, logos, T-shirt designs and whatever else you have in mind. Please contact Adam to view his online illustration and graphic arts portfolio.
