"Involving events,I am best known for creating sophisticated,personal 'caricatures' and greatly engaging the crowd with my ability to learn much about the person I'm drawing and incorporating the interesting and maybe previously unknown aspects of the person into the illustration.
All of this is done very quickly. Typically between three to ten minutes, depending on what is said. Attendees of an event love to gather and listen and watch me draw,not knowing what might be said or drawn. The final product becomes a conversation piece as those in attendance ask about the person and what the drawing is about. This all helps creates more of a sense of community amongst those attending. This all works best for company gatherings, trade shows and weddings, where two different families get to learn more about each other.
What I do does not work well for children events. My drawings are not like those found at the kiddie amusement parks.
I am an award-winning, nationally recognized cartoonist and caricaturist who has been cartooning professionally since 1979.
Besides caricature, I am also a motivational speaker that can charge the charge the crowd into wanting to be more creative and productive."
