Dennis Porter Caricature Artist -- Fun entertainment for parties, trade shows as artist draws quick-sketches of your guests

Stan Lee, an American Original

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Lee when he spoke in Springfield some years back; great guy, signed my drawing of him. His talk was terrific and he could not have been nicer to the endless line waiting to meet him. Including me! He earned his respect; his 1960s writing is still amazing after…

Celebrating RECOVERY…

UNIQUE PROJECT… Recently I was contacted by an amazing young mother with a very specific wish. Her daughter had been in a catastrophic accident — not expected to survive for a time — and mom wanted a drawing of her in recovery mode. So. Here she is, half her face paralyzed, unable to smile there,…

Is Your Event a CIRCUS??

Last weekend I was invited to sketch at one of the most fun events in my long history of Party Drawing. It seemed to be amazing for everyone there, far more than my usual, which is saying a lot. I do not say that lightly… after about forty years of drawing at thousands and thousands…

Was Your Party A DRAG??

Drawing recently at a Cincinnati Area Board of Realtors picnic — with my old pal John, who was drawing with me — we both noted how some events are more FUN than others. The realtor’s picnic was great fun, nice people, really cool. Not every event is like that. It’s true. Yes. Sure, we know…

Ain’t Nothing Like Family…

Recently I was invited back to draw at a church picnic for maybe the tenth year in a row. Flattering, and always a fun event, too. You can not beat the vibe at those events. Nobody is there because they have to be, they WANT to see their neighbors and friends in that setting —…

Let’s Do It AGAIN!

I was invited to draw at a wedding reception for a young couple, Brandi & Seth, back in 2006. Sketch a couple of hours, gonna be fun. Sure! And it was, too, but… more and more relatives kept stopping by. And the time kept extending… And extending… And extending… — And through it all I…

Death of a Friend

The end of an old friend… No more DAYTON CITY PAPER, alas… I did play drawings for the old DCP from 2006 through about 2010 or so, and was invited to serve as Associate Editor in there somewhere. I was on staff three years, I believe, and began doing staff drawings along the way. That…

Do Ya Like SPORTS??

I had the good fortune to be invited to the Holiday Inn in Fairborn to provide some entertainment for their vital Housekeeping staff last week. Housekeeping is a tough job, I am sure, but this crew was way professional, utterly hilarious — and apparently more than happy in their jobs — so the whole experience…

Never Did THAT Before…

A short time back I was contacted by a delightful young lady with a unique concept — come and draw a full body, COLOR portrait of two people — during church services. Yes! So. This was to be the Pastor and his wife, the First Lady. Of the Mt Calvary Missionary Baptist Church, on Siebenthaler Avenue…
