Superhero drawing birthday

Who knows what they want to be when they grow up??  This young man does. A fun party gift for the party guests too!

Kid’s birthday parties are by far one of Dennis’ favorite types of events. Drawing fun, energetic kids while entertaining & joking is a joy for him.

Having a caricature artist is a terrific idea to entertain guests of any age.

Caricature portraits at a kid’s birthday party are sure to leave a lasting impression and give them something to remember that fun party — YOURS!
Dennis can always get a laugh and a little conversation out of the most shy kids. Asking them about their interests, joking with them, asking what they like to do and study is a quality you may not find in many other party entertainers. Dennis truly loves his job and has the ability to put smiles on everyone’s faces through his caricature art.

Looking for something special to give as a gift for a birthday? Dennis loves the chance to work on studio pieces. Tell us your idea by calling or by writing us an email (info below), we’ll consult with you to make sure the caricature portrait is just what you want for that special gift. First, Dennis will ask for the photo, he will sketch up a concept based on that picture and after speaking with you about the subject’s interests and personality —  if  everything looks good at that point, and only after approval from you, Dennis asks payment, then works up a final copy in color or black and white that is sure to please.

Prices vary based on size and detail, so please don’t hesitate to inquire. Studio work can be a true treasure and is great kid’s birthday party fun. Have an idea already in mind and a good picture you’d like us to draw? Email Dennis your ideas with photos attached and he will reply promptly. Great fun that will last for years!
