I offer caricature services for all types of events. I get hired to draw at birthday parties, graduation parties, weddings, bar/bat mizvahs, and corporate functions just to name a few. I draw fast, high-quality color caricatures. I am punctual, reliable, and personable, and will make sure all guests have their picture drawn before the event is over even if it means I have to go past my contracted time. I love what I do and really enjoy being around people. In addition, I carry commercial liability insurance.

I have been a professional comic book artist/caricature artist/illustrator for the past 30 years. I'm a graduate of the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon Art in Dover, NJ. I have worked for most major comic book companies: DC, Marvel, Dark Horse, IDW, Tokyopop, Archie Comics, and also was a staff/lead artist for Harvey Comics from 1990-95 where I illustrated characters such as Casper the Friendly Ghost, Baby Huey, Richie Rich to name a few. In my career, I have worked on other famous licensed characters including Angry Birds, Strawberry Shortcake, Bullwinkle & Rocky, The Flintstones, Archie & Jughead & Jonny Quest and many others. In addition, I was Lead & Staff artist at JUNCO/Flamehead clothing from 2002-03. Other accomplishments include working briefly as staff artist for Jim "Garfield" Davis, teaching basic cartooning at UCLA, and having my own syndicated strip CEO Dad which ran in 12 major newspapers. I've also illustrated 8 children's books and spoke at the Charles M. Schulz Museum and the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity.

WOW! Simply put.. Jorge was AMAZING! Not only did he arrive on time, he was very humble and professional. My guests are still talking about how having Jorge at the party MADE the party. Jorge worked quickly to accommodate all my guests without sacrificing his quality of artwork. He went above and beyond by making sure he attended to everyone, even if it meant him going over the time that I paid for. Who does that? Jorge Pacheco does! I highly recommend JORGE. A++++ all the way! Will re book in the future! His rates are super affordable compared to others, while his quality of work is TOP NOTCH! Thanks Jorge!!! ;)

Jorge was great! We hired him for our wedding. We opted to have him during our cocktail hour and reception. Everyone loved him! My only complaint is that several guests didn't get any time with him because he was so in demand!

Jorge was awesome!! Every single one of my guests loved him! I hired him for my daughter's 6th bday, so he was dealing with kids all day, and I must say he has the patience of an angel! He conversed with the kids, and got to know them while he drew. I'm not surprised that many of my guests asked for his card because he was amazing! He's priced low but the quality is outstanding! He's also very professional...My husband and I made him a plate of food and served him a slice of bday cake, but he never took a break to eat until he left the party. He even stayed over an hour late to make sure everyone had their personal caricature! And didn't even charge us! We loved him!
