- When you call THE FASTEST CARICATURE ARTISTS IN THE WORLD more of your guests will get drawn, shorter waiting times, more fun at your party.
- In most cases, we can draw EVERYONE at a party!! We're very easy to work with, very open minded, INSURED, travel friendly, easy pricing and easy to set up.
- Your guests will love watching our artists draw their fellow guests. It's an interactive entertainment experience and we strongly encourage audience participation.
- We may just have the funnest job in the world! We get to make funny pictures of people and see them smile and laugh at us, themselves and each other.
- Our artists have the delicate skills needed create a fun drawing with an accurate likeness and a positive reaction from each individual guest.
- When appropriate, we stroll around to where guests are for the entire party, rather than have them come to us. We don't use easels so we are very versatile and mobile. This makes us more useful than a Photo Booth and other novelties that just sit there and are only busy for a short while at most parties.
- B/W drawings on (8.5x11") are easy to photocopy so guests that get drawn together can share their drawings. (and a self serve photocopier is available)
- Guests can hang up their drawings on our optional display so that they can show off their artwork and guess who's who until they are ready to go.
- When a stationary set up is appropriate, we bring a large, colorful sign with a TIMER on it, so guests can time our drawings and play "beat the clock". Each drawing takes around a minute per person. If there is a line, it is positioned so that the guests can SEE what the artist is doing as much as possible.
- More than one artist is available for extremely large crowds.
- Paper we draw on is customizable for your personal message, theme or brand.
- In the case of a promotion or trade-show, we can hold quick 'on message' chats with guests while drawing them.
- Printable promotional posters are available for you to advertise our appearance and get the most out of your promotion.
- Live stream video service also available for streaming online
- Other live interactive party art services available by our talented artists:

- PERSONALIZED coloring page projects for large or small parties and individuals
- Live DIGITAL black and white or colored caricatures, displayed on a monitor/screen and printed onsite or hosted online
- Live black and white or colored traditional hand drawn caricatures on 14x17" paper drawn at an easel, with or without bodies
- Live SILHOUETTES. Hand cut or digitally drawn (same options as above.)
- Live 5 Minute Quick Sketch Portraits (not cartoons) of faces or full body (also available in digital)
- Live Quick Oversize Drawings at stand up easel as a show.
- Live Active Scene Sketch Drawing of Your WHOLE Party. One large sketch/painting of the party or several smaller sketches/paintings of key scenes at the event.

Adam Pate is an extremely talented artist ... What he said he could provide, was provided; and, done in a very professional manner. He was very flexible in our scheduling needs. Attendees provided very positive feedback and enjoyed his caricatures. I would very much recommend Adam for any type of event where you want to add something fun and out of the ordinary for your guests/attendees. His drawings were a fun addition for our event and I would not hesitate to have him back at another event.

Adam Pate was fantastic. We had a company picnic at a baseball game and Adam went above and beyond to make sure that everyone who wanted a drawing got one. I appreciate his willingness to take hi talents to the crowd. Our team members loved the drawings!

Adam did a great job. I really like his approach to the event, he wanders the crowd and goes to the guests, instead of sitting at a booth and having to have guests go to him and wait in line. He was funny and my guests were entertained. If you are looking for something fun and different at your next event, I would recommend Adam Pate.
