Superhero drawing birthday

Hey! Does anyone out there know what they want to be when they grow up??  This young man does. This was a very quick sketch that thrilled this little boy — we hope the parents made copies for him to color! (Caricatures are fun party gift for grownup guests, too…)

Planning a Kid’s birthday party? Dennis loves children’s events. Drawing fun, excited kids while entertaining & joking around with them is a joy for him.

Having a caricature artist at your party 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 your WAY fun party!
Dennis can usually get a laugh and a little conversation out of even the most shy kids. He gently asks them about their interests,  jokes with them, asks what they like to do and their plans later in life — they usually warm up and enjoy the moment. Dennis truly loves his job and has the ability to put a smile on almost anyone’s face 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 your ideas, then sketch up a quick pencil layout after speaking with you about the subject’s interests and personality —  he emails that sketch to you; after your approval, Dennis asks prepayment, then works up a final copy in color or black and white.

Prices vary based on size and detail, so each project is quoted specifically. 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!
