Introduction: Whether big parties, little parties, college parties, children’s parties, trade shows, or bar/bat mitzvahs from Las Vegas to the Jersey Shore, Atlantic City, Hamptons, and all points in between, it’s always the same--entertaining, engaging, and magical, and it’s always different--as one-of-a-kind as every guest. Do you say caricatures? It's much more than that; I call them FELIS FACES. It is a truly engaging form of entertainment, one that will give your guests something to remember for a long, long time. I love what I do, and each one of them gets to go home with proof of that. I know that planning a party or special event may seem like an unending list of choices and decisions to make. After 30 years of doing what I do, I can guarantee that choosing FELIS FACES for your entertainment is the best decision you could make. For over 30 years, I’ve participated in the most special occasions everywhere, literally drawing a crowd. I observe party guests just like yours and show them what I see--beauty, humor, and fun. That's why for 30 years, from my very party right up to yours, one thing is still true--entertaining at an event makes me feel like the luckiest person alive.

While Mr. Crooks was drawing his caricatures, he talked with each person as he was drawing them. Everyone enjoyed their conversations with him. He was very nice and accommodating when I was having an issue getting home on time for his appointment. Would highly recommend him. His caricatures were very good!

Steve was great to work with from beginning to end. Everyone really enjoyed sitting for their caricature and talking with Steve. He was punctual, professional, courteous, and the quality of his drawings were wonderful. We would definitely call on him again for future functions.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My fee is considered on simple hourly basis, and ranges from $100 - $150/hr depending on travel distance, tolls incurred and such. 1/2 of the total fee is requested upon approval of my participation in the event.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    First, of course, we speak over the phone and discuss the specifics of the event: time: date, time, location, how many attendees (adults or children), and of course, what the special occasion is! In the case of a family event, if the family is within five miles or so, I'm always happy to set up convenient opportunity to meet in person, and in fact do couple of caricatures right then and there (they are quick, after all!) First, we get to know each other face to face,and second, they won't have to take time out from the actual event to sit for me!A win-win! In fact I can say with certainty that every party has been better when I've had the opportunity to get to know the families in advance; to go this extra mile. Or five miles, for that matter!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I've been a professional artist and illustrator for over thirty years, with a particular specialization in caricature and portraiture. I'v just always considered people's faces to be there most special thing on Earth!
