About

Thank you for your interest in having me entertain your guests at your event.

I offer three main services for LIVE events. We travel. Here are Orlando rates:

TRADITIONAL CARICATURES- The Cartoon You Classic. $125 hr.

Technology changes, but a Classic Caricature never goes out of style. It's unplugged. It’s pen and paper, it's old world magic. Nothing beats the simplicity of a clean black line on a crisp white sheet of paper. Quite simply, an artist with an easel projects a folksy charm that modern technology cannot create. When you want the focus to be YOU, and not the technology, then the Classic is for you.

Suddenly your wedding just got more romantic with the appearance of an artist who captures couples in love. No cables, no wires, no cyber nothing. Sometimes you need a Classic. We live in a warp speed culture. Let's slow life down a bit and enjoy the moment.

A Classic artist can draw 20 black and white caricatures per hour or if you prefer color, 10 color caricatures per hour. Each drawing is an 11x14" original and comes with a transparent bag with handle.

DIGITAL CARICATURE- Caricatures from the future! $225 hr.

Impress with high tech. Want something different than the traditional marker and paper caricatures? Go digital! Hire one or more Digital Caricature Artists to electrify the crowds with the power of the pixel! Artists draw on pressure sensitive digital drawing tablets and guests watch the art projected on 21" or 32” LCD screens. Guests leave with their own full color caricature printed on the spot on 4x6” or 8x10” paper. Each artist can draw 8-10 color caricatures per hour. This option is great for big crowds and big rooms, especially when clients want a sleek and modern entertainment style for their corporate events. Company logos can be printed on the paper along with a custom border. At the end you receive digital copies of all the caricatures. Call for specific rates and packages for your area.

With Digital, guests get a print in a plastic sleeve they can hang on their lanyards, and a download of their image, with your logo on the paper.

Expect 20 guests drawn per hour in bw or 10 guests per hour in color.

COASTER CARICATURES- Make Happy Hour even happier! $150 hr.

Surprise guests with their caricature drawn on a blank coaster! The artist can stroll or draw on an easel, and guests will love their happy hour souvenir. Expect 20 faces drawn per color or 30 in bw PER hour.

GIFT CARICATURES FROM PHOTOS:

Would you like a BRIDE and GROOM caricature drawn from photos? We can draw individual or group caricatures from photos. Groups are great for family reunions, sports teams, companies, schools, etc. Drawings can be themed, and can include detailed backgrounds and text. Surprise someone with a gift they will always remember.

    Small wedding, awesome experience

    Rafael was absolutely awesome. He was fun, engaging, and our guests absolutely loved him. In fact, he was such a big hit that I even had some of my other vendors asking about his services for their own use. He was able to accommodate additional requests after the wedding (as we ran out of time) and had all portraits posted promptly. I would definitely hire him again.

    Exactly what I was looking for!

    I had been wanting a caricature for my brand for sometime but had the hardest time finding something that fit my needs until I saw Rafael's work. I reached out to him about having him draw some for me and wow did he deliver. He gave me exactly what I was after. He was very prompt with emails back and forth and delivered when he said he would. If you are looking for a fun caricature for yourself, your business, an event or your family, he's definitely your guy. You won't be disappointed.
