for EVENTS: Kartoons.com
is a Minneapolis-based company of elite cartoonists who will
draw high quality caricatures at the rate of ninety seconds
to four minutes each, live, on location, at various events.
We offer only the most experienced professional artists, with
a reputation for outstanding performance in terms of
our ability to put your guests at ease while we draw them
and entertain onlookers. Unlike many third-party middlemen,
if we cannot send you the best, fastest, most qualified artists
due to previous scheduling demands, we will turn down the
job and forego the commission rather than subject you and
your guests to sub-par, amateur or student performers.
quality caricatures by a talented professional artist who
can draw at least 14 guests per hour are ideal for parties,
company picnics, trade shows, receptions at weddings or bar/bat
mitzvahs, open houses, conventions, company team-building
retreats, and many other events. In addition to providing
a highly personalized form of entertainment, caricatures are
wonderful mementos. Simply call to inquire about a date, and
we will take care of the details.
you are planning an event at which more than a dozen people
are expected to attend, beware of online portfolios that display
work done in the studio or at retail outlets or at very small
events where time is not a factor. In an
actual event setting, an ability to produce a drawing at a
level and in a style that is well-received by guests but also
at a speed that makes it practical and fun for a group larger
than ten or twelve guests is not easily accomplished by many
artists. A balance must be struck between elaborate color
or detail and the amount of time a guest is asked to sit--or
others are made to wait. Also: don't be mislead by groups
of caricaturists who tout "combined experience"
of many years--after all, five caricaturists with only six
years apiece may total 30 years, but obviously that can hardly
be expected to improve the ability of any one of the artists
they offer! Our lead artists, Pete
Wagner, Dian J Wall and Jonny Johnson, have, for more
than 30 years EACH, consistently wowed the crowds
at events by drawing 18 to 25 faces per hour at a level of
artistic quality and in a style that makes the event fun for
everyone. Unlike others who make inflated claims, we prove
our speed and ability in our video.
