Introduction: I’ve been a caricature artist for 18 years now. I started at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and was there for 10 years. The next 6 I started my own company and have drawn at several fairs across the US. I have also drawn at corporate gigs for companies like Google, Facebook and many more. It is important to me to produce a quality and hilarious product. Recently I completed a “Caricature Japan “ professional course as well as being enrolled for a year in the “Stephen Silver drawing Academy “ which is a character design course. I draw both traditional and Digital caricatures for events!

If you need high quality and timely work, Shahin is the person to reach out to. Not only did he produce 115 individual full body caricatures but also a team drawing set to a Star Trek theme. He had a short turn around time, but delivered early and produced high quality work that the team loved. Shahin was always available via email/phone, he walked me through his art process and idea of the drawing, and provide updates on the progress of the project. Great hire and will definitely reach out to him for all future project needs.

Shahin did a great job for our employee holiday party. He was friendly and our employees loved the caricatures he did of them and their families. We definitely will be using Shahin again! We highly recommend him. He also drove from the Santa Cruz area to our event in the East Bay!
