Hello and thanks for your inquiry! Most people hire me based on the strength of my artwork, my 5-star ranking and the many thoughtful reviews left by my former(and often repeat) clientele. I've been called a natural-born showman more than once...someone with the ability to relax people with a warm personality and quick wit. Please consider my many years(since 2002) of EXCLUSIVE(this IS my day job) caricaturing experience for your event. You might just find, as many before have, that my caricature skills and performer's sensibility is the only entertainment your special occasion calls for.

Need more than one artist for your larger event? I've a team of experienced artists I've worked with for years to help out. Want customized, preprinted paper to help memorialize your big day or a studio piece to present to that loved one or co-worker? Special requests are my specialty. Whether its traditional, hand-crafted caricatures for that backyard BBQ or state-of-the-art digital caricatures for your corporate trade-show, I offer competitive, affordable options to suit your needs. Please feel free to contact me with your questions and details and allow me to put together the perfect package for your occasion. Thanks again for your interest and I'll look forward to hearing from you.

Cheers,
Alex

Alex was incredible! He showed up early and was ready to start right when we needed him to. His work was incredible and he was a great addition to the party. He had our guests laughing while he worked and never looked overwhelmed or overworked (which I'm sure he was). When we went over our allotted time, he was more than accommodating and stayed until everyone had a picture. It was also an ugly sweater party and he wore his own so he fit right in. I've been getting rave reviews since the party, everyone was so impressed and our office is covered in his work!

Alex was a huge hit at our team event, and working with him was an absolute pleasure! There was a wide range of personalities, cultures, and ages at the party, and this activity appealed to all. We posted each drawing on the wall as it was completed, so all guests could enjoy them throughout the evening. As an unexpected benefit, everyone knew the name of every single team member before the party was over. The drawings gave everyone something to talk about -- a great conversation starter! I definitely recommend caricatures for a teaming event, and you can't go wrong with Alex. He was charming, funny, and interacted well with all the guests...a true delight!

Alex was fantastic! During the booking process he communicated very well and was very accommodating as we changed things along the way. He arrived early enough that he was setup and ready to go at out start time. Everyone was so impressed by his drawings and entertainment that we asked him to stay longer and he accommodated us. He rolled with the punches and dealt very well with a few intoxicated guests that clung to him. This guy is a true professional! Not only do we recommend him to all but we already plan to book him again in the future. We have had four or five previous character drawings done so when we say Alex is talented we have a good comparison.
