What is a caricature artist?

A caricature artist refers to a special style of a portrait artist. A caricature is a portrait or depiction of real-life people. They are not cartoon fabrications of fictional characters. A caricature artist exaggerates the essences or features of the subject while keeping the subject still recognizable.

Caricatures by Sean offers traditional hand-drawn "old media", as well as digital caricatures using various software. Traditional media includes color pencils, markers, chalk pastels, watercolors, acrylics, and oils, usually on a medium to heavy-stock paper for the dry media, and paper board, watercolor blocks, masonite boards, canvas, and directly onto walls and other structures for the paint mediums. Images can be transferred to banners, business cards, announcements, and invitations or as online avatars or virtual backgrounds. We specialize in children's parties, including Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, Baby's First Birthday, Sweet Sixteens, Quinceañeras, and Weddings, as well as the latest trend, online teleconferencing or Zoom parties, which we call Caricature Virtual Events.
