Caricatures drawn live or from photos for gifts and more..
Judy creates quickly drawn live-style caricatures at every type of special event, party or celebration. Because of Judy’s natural talent for portraiture, she has developed a unique caricature style. It is really a portrait-caricature hybrid, leaning toward portraiture, with the fun and line art of a cartoon. Some may argue that is does not reflect the true “definition” of the word caricature, stressing exaggeration, but her customers are surprised and happy to recognize themselves! Even the skittish guests are often willing participants when they see the often “kind” renditions, with little or flattering exaggeration!” She is a 4 time recipient of a “Best of” award from Gigmasters.com, and online bidding agency, which recognizes artists with at least 4 reviews of 4+ Stars within a year, so alas, there are “caricature” styles running the gamut, and a market for all!
A down-to-earth and social person, she has a tendency to make people of all ages feel at ease, while they pose for her artistry, and she enjoys people gathering around to watch, since her specialty is not only to provide personalized souvenirs or keepsakes to be taken home, but also to serve as a distinctive entertainer. For over a decade, she has drawn for numerous Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, Birthday, Anniversary and Graduation parties, Customer Appreciation days, Fundraisers, After-prom and grad parties, college events, weddings, civic events, festivals and more. She can also subcontract other unique and talented artists for customers requesting more than one or if she is personally unavailable. Be sure to contact her for a custom quote! Because a lack of insurance undoubtedly causes some potential clients, especially corporations, to book entertainment through agencies rather than with individual artists, Judy now carries liability insurance for your convenience and piece of mind!
In lieu of or in addition to drawing individuals entirely onsite (where paper is included in price), pre-created and custom designed papers may be ordered (often “headless” full-body themed/activity poses), or bordered and captioned papers for a commemoration or to accomodate time restraints. See further description and samples at bottom of page.*
OR check out our pre-designed “Scene-zine® mock magazine cover-style”border papers. These have been pre-created ready for your custom “caption” to be added and duplicated for drawing on at the event. These make unique party keepsakes and can be mixed. Caricature head shot or full body activity poses are drawn day of event.* These have not been aggressively promoted, but are cute for color events.
*Note: All custom papers are priced in addition to party booking

Pre-drawn bodies, with props and/or borders with titles/ captions created before event, at additional cost depending on clients needs. They are then scanned and laser printed to be completed (if “headless”) or drawn on start to finish, in quantity needed. This is a great option when time is of concern, or for theme parties or commemorative events. The following “masters” were created for actual events. (she is in the process of creating BW numerous master body/poses to create a library to be chosen from upon request, or for “custom coloring pages” that can be copied and colored after children are drawn).
