Planning a Kid’s birthday party? Dennis loves children’s events. Drawing fun, excited kids while entertaining & joking around with them is an absolute 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 help your guests remember your WAY fun party!

Dennis can usually get a laugh and a little conversation out of even the most shy kids.

If they are not comfortable — he chats with the parents while doing that child’s sketch. Of course!

But if the youngster seems okay with it, he gently asks them about their age, their interests, 

jokes a bit with them, asks what they like to do and their plans later in life — and soon they relax and enjoy the moment.

Dennis truly loves his job and can put a smile on almost anyone’s face through his caricature art

and gentle personality. Call today for some super fun at that Kid’s Birthday Party!

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 —  then email that sketch to you; no charge. Then, 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!
