"A caricature is a rendered image showing the features of its subject in a simplified or exaggerated way through sketching, pencil strokes, or through other artistic drawings." Wikipedia
I've been drawing my portrait-style caricatures at parties, weddings and special events in the greater Philadelphia, New Jersey and Delaware area since 1994. I don't use a lot of exaggeration in my portraits; they are more realistic cartoon portraits made with markers, pastels, pencils and chalks. I like people and look for their best aspects as I draw them. People really enjoy being portrayed in this way, and I enjoy using my skills to put that image on the drawing paper. It's always a big hit at parties.
I've drawn caricature portraits at many different types of parties, weddings and corporate events
