    George was a smash hit at our wedding reception on September 4th. We wanted to add a bit of wow factor to the party and George did just that. Everyone was amazed and loved his work. Thanks George for giving our guests something memorable to rave about for years to come.

      George E.'s reply

      Thank You! This is typical of the reviews I have had over many years of doing caricatures. The two above are not normal. Read more below and you will see 100% satisfaction. You can't be perfect and I am dissatisfied that one bad review is now in the number one spot after a PERFECT record since 2011.

    About this pro

    I was awarded a Thumbtack "Best of 2016" badge. I concentrate on getting the face to be recognizable of the person I am drawing, often with other artists I hear customers say it doesn't look like them, but is exaggerated like crazy! I take a little more time with my face work and have more detail. My caricatures do not use goofiness to mask a bad likeness. I use quality, archival materials like thicker paper than most caricature artists. I like the interaction with live subjects when doing party caricatures, and I like parties! I like traveling. I grew up in a family of artists, so it seems to be in my blood, I don't think I could be happy in any other job. I just love to be creative and make pictures, whether it be caricatures, portraits, or photography.

      Q & A

      • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
        I have 3 basic packages: 2 hours for $120 if in Baltimore or Baltimore County, $148 for 2 hours if I travel beyond that, $180 for 3 hours for most areas, and a $200 special for 4 hours for most areas under 2 hours driving time.
      • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
        I follow developments on the web, observing what the latest work by others looks like. My main source of learning caricatures in particular still comes from working with other professionals and picking up things that I feel can improve my style.
      • How did you get started doing this type of work?
        I come from a family of artists. My father used to draw on the boardwalk in Ocean City Maryland. He taught art at Southern High School in Baltimore, and introduced me to Irv Finifter who was also an art teacher their, who had a shop on the boardwalk in OC for portraits and caricatures and I worked there for 6 summers learning the trade..
