Want to get a unique gift for the person who has "everything?" give them their very own gift caricature portrait, beautifully drawn traditionally using pencil with a more modeled "realistic" look. These beautifully rendered portraits can also be made into poster size.

Hello, my name is Elgin, and I want YOUR Business! I've been a Professional Caricature artist in NYC since 1990.
I've drawn in a variety of venues, including street caricatures in Times Square and Central Park,corporate events, for Kraft Foods, and Sardi's Restaurant, Toys R Us, and The M & M Store. I've drawn at Tavern On The Green, The Hampton's Classic, and Yankee Stadium! I've done Canine Caricatures For The American Cancer Society's Annual Dogs Walk,Petco, and I've done more Bat-Bar Mitzvahs than the average Rabbi!
If you need an artist that's fast, look no further. Im one of the fastest drawing caricature artists in New York city.I draw at a rate of 20-25caricatures an hour. Thats a LOT of pictures! the great thing about caricature drawing at a party is that everyone gets entertained! It doesn't matter if you're young or old, make or female, Democrat or Republican, EVERYONE loves to have their picture drawn!
Caricatures are the ultimate party favor that not only serves as a momento of that special date or event, but also can be used as an effective marketing tool for business. Imagine having your contact information on every caricature. It can be done.
Why wait 15 minutes to get your caricatue drawn when you can get yours done in FIVE MINUTES OR LESS? The pictures you see here were all done LIVE within that time frame. I understand that when you are at a PARTY you are not there JUST to get MY caricature, but to enjoy the entire party! that's why I make it my policy never to have a person in the chair more than five minutes. Keeping the line moving is essential to the most people getting done and having time left over to enjoy whatever else is going on!
Caricatures are not just for parties. You can also use them as gifts for that special someone who is having a birthday, graduation, anniversary, or any other ocassion you can think of. Just send me a photo of the person who is being honored along with a list of their hobbies, interests, personality quirks, etc. and I will deliver a beautifully rendered caricature of them. Make sure that it is a CURRENT picture of the person! we can only draw what we SEE so make sure its a picture you LIKE! Front view Three Quarter and Side view is BEST!
Gift caricatures can be drawn in a variety of ways, I can do a cartoony style, semi realistic, or highly exaggerated!
Gift caricatures can be done in pen and ink on paper, with pencil, or colored digitally. The choice is yours.
Price is determined by turnaround time, as well as the complexity and size of project.
We also draw caricature GROUPS with 20 people or more!
