$125 - $175 per hour
Funny, professional, experienced, excellent at capturing likenesses ("WOW! That really looks like us!")... Personable artist who entertains while he draws, with stories of travel, metaphysics, things that go "bump" in the night... Multi-lingual cartoonist with international experience.
Corporate events, sales events, weddings, private parties, Bar/Bas Mitzvahs, college events (over 150 different colleges and universities!)
And he knows how to draw!

I give individual attention to each drawing, whether we're drawing at a corporate function or a child's celebration. I use no templates, no formulas. Each sketch is started "from scratch." And you get truly individualized drawings! I can offer straight portrait drawing (in a cartoon style), or the notable exaggerations that people have come to expect in caricatures. I am a classically trained portrait artist, so in straight cartoon portrait drawing, LIKENESSES ARE GUARANTEED!*

*No "generic faces!" Each drawing will be distinctively different, one from the next!

Gene was absolutely wonderful. It was "unbearably hot" but Gene kept his cool. He was gracious and accomodating to the whole family. It was a huge success and a lot of fun for all. I would highly recommend him for both adults and children. Everyone went home with a "cartoon" likeness of themselves to frame. --Louise Ecke, Oakland, NJ

We hired Gene as a surprise for our daughter's Sweet 16 Birthday party. We chose him because his drawings are accurate and flattering, and his cost was also reasonable. Gene really knew his audience, and the girls warmed up to him right away. He spent time with each girl, making each one feel special, and they loved their portraits! He did not exaggerate the girls' features, which would be a huge no-no for teenage girls. The girls cheered each time he completed a picture! Now they have a nice keepsake memory of their time at our daughter's party. Thanks to Gene, we were the "cool parents" for an evening. We would highly recommend Gene Mater!
