Cartoons & Caricatures by Dave has been a preferred vendor with the Event Planners Association of Southern California, San Diego Style Weddings and Temecula Valley Wedding Professionals.
Dave’s art has become increasingly fashionable with planners, brides and grooms who appreciate a balanced blend of humor, talent and elegance.
Dave draws approximately 16-18 guests per hour if he draws upper bodies portraits with tones and spot coloring. He can draw as many as 20-22 guests per hour if he draws heads in black ink only.
Dave uses only non-toxic, archival-quality 11″ x 17″ semi-glossy cardstock with black and gray ink brush pens, calligraphy pens, and wax pencils for spot coloring. He does not do a “rip and tear” technique or use thin papers.
Our custom-designed drawing papers are a staple of our event packages. They elevate the drawings to cherished party favors on top of the already fun art entertainment. Danielle designs the paper with your clients’ names, event date, special colors, logo, theme or just about any design motif. She can even work off the colors and themes used in invitations or save-the-date cards. All of our designs are one-of-a-kind and never repeated.
Cartoons & Caricatures by Dave also offers more than live traditional pen/paper caricatures, such as:
::: Live digital caricatures (in lieu of traditional pen-and-ink on paper)
::: Wedding-party portraits for your wedding website, ceremony programs and/or gifts
::: Save-the-date and invitation illustrations
::: Sign-in board, party favor and drawing paper illustrations
::: Hand-drawn illustrated “love maps” (the when/where of your love story)
::: Hand-drawn illustrated wedding-week maps (for invitations or website context)
We are more than happy to provide additional references and samples upon request.
