Client Testimonials:

Tracy C. (Wedding) 9/25/16
So we hired Sean from toonupz for our wedding reception and absolutely loved him! 5 stars is not enough he deserves 10. He was fast and his work was AMAZING! Thorough out the reception our guest kept coming up to us saying OMG look at our picture, Sean is great, we love it. Not only was Sean fantastic but he was also very professional and very personable with all of our guest. The paper with our names and date of our wedding was a fantastic addition. And the picture Sean did of us we just love. We couldn't have been happier with Sean and toonupz. Highly recommend for any wedding or party. Thank you Sean for the great work that you did.

Grace M. (Birthday Party) 8/6/16
Angelo was our artist and he was fantastic. Very polite and professional. He was the hit of my daughter's party. With no doubt the best entertainment we hired. We will definitely be hiring him on our future events.

Michelle L. (Company Event) 8/5/16
ANGELO!! Super chill dude. Thanks for the caricature with my cousin.
We got to converse with him while he was doing the works on drawing our faces & he mentioned how he does events between weddings & parties.
4 minute hands on drawing & you don't even have to keep still. Although, it does feel awkward having them stare at you for awhile just to get the details of the drawing, Angelo nailed it!
Fast for a fun cartoon looking version of yourself. I would recommend him for any event!

HE WAS PERFECT FOR THE JOB! VERY FRIENDLY, PATIENT AND TALKATIVE.....I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND TOON UPZ (AND SEAN) TO ANYONE INTERESTED IN BOOKING A CARACTURIST FOR AN EVENT!!

DeNielle Powell (30th Birthday Party)
I booked Angelo for a Vegas themed adult birthday party last August. My guest were thrilled with the idea that they got to have their picture drawn and his line stayed constant. Angelo was extremely responsive via email, arrived on time to the event, and even stayed an extra hour. He was very accommodating and made the party that much more fun. Great entertainment for adult party goers...you will not regret.?

Andrew F. (Birthday Party) 3/31/16
I did a lot of research and ended up choosing Toon Upz. I originally booked with Angelo but due to over booking I was asked if I would like to have Sean at my event. I agreed but was on edge due to the fact I researched Angelo's work and got nervous if I was already double booked I worried if they would even show up. They kept in constant communication and assured me it would turn out great. It actually turned out better and I'm glad I agreed to go with Sean because he turned out to be the coolest dude and was a huge hit!!! Sean is a genuinely kind person! Oh yea, not to mention Sean showed up early and helped with finishing the set up, he didn't have to do that!!! Yea need I say more about the kind of person he is?! Book with Sean!! Do it now...Stop looking at other company's or other reviews and just book with Sean!

We were more than satisfied ... our caricature artist was awesome!! Our birthday party was a big success and it had a lot to do with having an artist present drawing our young and old guests. We didn't pass out any party favors but they were able to take home soemthing to remember the event. Some guests requested his information for their future functions and I gladly provided the info. I would definitely recommend a caricature artist to anyone seeking to capture the moment in a unique and fun way!!
