Thumbtack Spotlight

SocalToons Caricatures

(25 reviews)

Jon Abelardo grew up exposed to the art of caricature, drawing while watching artists have fun doing caricatures and entertaining people as well. This inflamed the passion in him and sparked the idea of starting his own caricature drawing business. Now, he draws beautiful and fun caricatures for various parties and events.

The greatest challenge that I have encountered is balancing the marketing of my business with the artistic side of the business. I basically have to put my business marketing skills to the test and I've learned a lot along the way.

Jon has added more entertainment and fun in many parties and events. His most successful project to date was a party for a business conference in the Mickey suite at the Disneyland Hotel. His customers were very excited and had the best time getting their caricatures drawn. It was such a rewarding experience for Jon.

My strategy is to keep the lines of communication open with my customers which is the best way to make sure that the caricature service that I'm providing matches their needs. This is one of the options I provide in my service that makes a great impression at parties.

Add more excitement and fun into your parties by having amazing caricature drawings. Book Jon now, and bring smiles to everyone's faces with his caricature and personality.

    Scott Whitesell entertained kids ages 4 to 12 at my son's birthday party. He showed up early than planned and had enough time to set up before, at 6 he was ready to face paint about 15 kids. It was an army themed party and the designs he made were nice and professionally done (from camo to hearts and butterflies. He then followed with the magic show. The children were very exited, Scott is really good with kids. The smiles and laughter from all the children and adults too were very memorable. At last he made Ballon designs for each kid. My son's was very happy and full of joy! Please don't think twice about hiring Scott, you won't regret it! Again thank you Scott!

    Duy N.

    We hired Jake to do magic during the cocktail hour for our wedding on November 22, 2014. We are very happy that we chose Jake. We were planning our wedding from out of state, but it was very easy to communicate with him. He was professional and responded to questions via email or text in a prompt manner. On the day of the wedding, he arrived on time during the cocktail hour and went from group to group and performed close up magic. Many of our guests were non English speakers, but this wasn't a problem because the many of his magic was done without words. We received a lot of feedback throughout the night that his magic was amazing. At the end of the cocktail hour, he showed me some of his magic. We were able to get a good crowd surrounding us. He captured everyone attention because his magic was very impressive. Everybody was amazed and was talking about his magic. My wife and I were occupied during the cocktail hour and we couldn't get to interact with many of our guests during the cocktail hour. We wanted to keep our guests entertain while we were busy. We couldn't be happier in choosing Jake to do his magic at our wedding. Jake made it a magical filled evening for many of our guests.
