If you're planning a large event, we also have many talented caricaturists' available including balloon twisting, face painting and other entertainment.

Caricatures are a big hit with kids as well as adults, and Grant is great with kids, he was a former art teacher (6-8 graders) through the SDSU foundation. Kids and adults love watching the hilarious drawings come to life in minutes, and enjoy seeing themselves and their friends and family with exaggerated features.

*To my Illustrator, Grant ... dude, you are so freaking talented. Thank you for giving extra baby laughs to the new mommies who could use some.

(* * * * *) Had Grant come out and entertain at our get together last week, and he was fabulous! He's friendly, prompt, professional and above all funny. He got through everyone in just over 3 hours and I had well over 50 people come. He was a great addition to our family party picnic. It was really hot that day but he kept going. We were all impressed by how we could tell who each person was without even having to guess. Also when I was going to book him, he replied to my emails and phone calls very quickly and helpfully answered any and all questions -Shane Schaetz


(* * * * *) We hired Grant to draw at our wedding last November and he turned out to be the main attraction! What made it really special is it brought both of our families together in a way that both memorable and fun. I had to keep him for 2 extra hours just because the line was so long for him all night, and everyone wanted one! Grant made it really simple to work with him, and his set up was easy to move from the cocktail hour into the ballroom. He was talkative and funny to top it off. A couple of my friends already have him lined up for other events I am so thrilled we found him! The drawing he did for my parents is hanging up in their house now and cracks me up every time I see it and it reminds me of my special day! Thanks again Grant!!! - Dana Clarkson


Dear Grant,
Bob's retirement party on Saturday was a HUGE success.
Everyone loved your artwork and Bob, of course, was absolutely thrilled with it!
He was just in tears and so surprised. It was a wonderful moment.
Thank you again for all your beautiful work. I really appreciate it.


Dear Grant,I personally wanted to thank you for coming out to the wrap party and drawing for so many of us for such a long time. Everyone was thrilled to get their drawings and I know there was a line for awhile so it was indeed a big hit. You are incredibly talented and it was a pleasure to do business with you. I hope you were able to have a good time yourself.Would love to do this again sometime in the future. Until then, take good care.Best,Mindy Weissman

Hey there!  I was soooo happy to have you as a part of our wedding.  I can't thank you enough for the amount of smiles and laughter that you brought to our special night.  Your energy, personality, and spirit is so unbelievably contagious and I just know our night would not have been the same without your presence.  I am truly grateful. Again, Grant, I couldn't have chosen a more perfect artist to be a part of our celebration.  I hope you enjoyed yourself too!

Everyone loved the caricature. Rex couldn't believe it. Once we gave it to him, he just kept looking at it and talked about it the rest of the night.
Thanks for making the evening so special and for being such a good sport about all of our details.
Happy Holidays!

Dear Grant,
I just wanted to thank you again for coming out yesterday. The kids loved their drawings and so did the parents. I kept hearing comments like, “I can’t believe how much that looks like him/her, or how cute”. One Grandma went out and bought a frame and is giving it as a gift to another grandma. Thanks again you did a great job.

It's great! You are fantastic!I can't thank you enough ... it really is superb. I can't wait for everyone to see it -- they will be blown away.Nice working with you, Grant. I am very grateful for the good price, too, and for your patience and SPEED -- my goodness, what a bargain!I belong to a sort of underground internet-based group that shares information about highly recommended services, products, people and places. To be put on their list is really to have a strong "Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval." I am going to rave about you to the list, and about the idea of caricatures as a great gift -- especially for and about people you work with. I'm sure it will eventually result in more clients for you. Plus I can't wait to give you another job myself.Anyway, thank you very very much!All the best,Suzanne


It was nice meeting you, Grant, and you did a wonderful job!! Thanks again for adding to the enjoyment of our divisional dinner!!! Take care, Linda.Linda Ford
