Who does Apple, Microsoft, Blackberry and Motorola hire when they are looking for entertainment for their events? Rafael from Cartoon You!

Rafael is the fastest artist in the business. No one else guarantees 20-25 guests drawn PER hour in black and white. 90% of artists out there draw 10-12 guests per hour, and do not guarantee a number, and that is why they charge less sometimes because they draw half the number that I can guarantee. Warp speed Captain! 2 minutes per person, and guaranteed likeness, you can time me! So maximize the number of guests that will be drawn by hiring me, my rates are fantastic for the amount of people I can draw. Get your money's worth and invite me to your party.

Featured in publications such as The Orlando Sentinel, Orlando Magazine, Create Magazine, Orlando Leisure, and Orlando Arts, Rafael Diez is the owner of Cartoon You Caricatures, a nationally rated 5-Star caricature entertainment company that provides affordable and professional caricature artists for all types of events - from small family parties to huge corporate conventions. We offer one or more artists and traditional hand drawn caricatures and high tech digital caricatures to meet our client's needs. If you need a party artist, a gift caricature, group caricature, or studio illustration, Cartoon You can help you with one or more artists for your event.

Caricature is a proven satisfier, eliciting laughter and delight from both sitter and audience alike. These comical portraits often end up framed and hanging on the walls of their subject's homes and offices for years afterwards. You can make this service available to your family, friends, and/or employees at competitive rates. Not local to Central Florida? No problem! We'll come to you. Call Rafael at and let's discuss what we can do for you.

Rafael was simply Amazing!!! He had fun with our guests and he truly is the fastest caricaturist we have ever met! He did my wife's and my portrait in less than 10 mins and we just LOVE it! We plan to use Rafael for future celebrations and would recommend him to anyone for a wedding reception, kids birthday party or any type of function where you want your guests to remember their day. Thank you Rafael! Deborah and John DeGraw - April 23, 2016
