I've been a caricature artist for 33 yrs. I draw 55-60 caricatures per hr. sustained. Any good caricature artist must be an entertainer too, so my job is to keep the atmosphere funny and light. I love my work and want to share it with as many people as I can. Since Speed is important to me when caricaturing, I have endeavored to see how fast I can go in an allotted time. Over the last ten years or so I have done one hour speed trails to set a record for most caricatures in one hour. In my first attempt I drew 113 people, in my second and third tries 129 and finally in my last attempt 133 (WHEW!!) Try as I might Guinness has refused to except my attempts but either way I am the unofficial worlds fastest caricaturist. Any function where people need and want entertainment is where I want to be. Caricatures can be a great addition to any party, corporate event or wedding reception. My setup is simple and doesn't need a lot of space so location isn't a problem.

Hiring Steve for my wedding this past Saturday was one of the best decisions I made during my planning process. I was unsure whether having a caricaturist was too carnival-like for our big day, but after seeing how how many people opted for a caricature, I quickly realized I made a great call. Steve was timely, professional, and overall, just wonderful! People not only raved about his talent in sketching, but also commented on what a happy demeanor he had the whole time - always smiling and having fun! You can tell he truly loves what he does. In short, I’d hire him again in a heartbeat and recommend him to anyone. Thanks, Steve!! - Kristel

Just WONDERFUL!!! We needed a 2 hr time slot for our office of 100 and he was able to squeeze us in with another gig later that day. Just great!! The whole office loved him. He was quick with the drawings and even though some wanted to change their 'look' he was amazing at turning them down and for them to just enjoy the humor of the drawing. It was just great. I would highly recommend and gigmasters made it super easy too.
