About
Beautifully funny, quick, and accurate caricatures for any event by highly-acclaimed artist Damon Renthrope. With 15+ years experience, Damon captures a complete likeness with a huge amount of fun, in a small amount of time. Completing each drawing in 2-5 minutes, Damon offers each guest if they'd prefer a "cute" or a "funny", and each is presented with a professional piece of art, worth framing.

Damon has been into art for as far as he could remember, going all the way back to a scribbling 3-year-old. In '98, fascinated by a caricaturist at a Planet Hollywood, he jumped into caricature art full swing, and ever since. He's influenced by caricature giants such as Al Hirschfeld, Sebastian Kruger, Bill Waterson, and pop artists such as Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Studying at SDSU, SDCC, and SDMC, his formal fine art and graphic design training offers a keen insight to exactly what it takes to create a streamlined piece of art that people would love.

Since then, he's enjoyed the patronage of such names as MTV, Nascar, Paramount Studios, Red Bull, Tiger Woods, Rohan Marley (the Bob Marley family), Mandy Moore, Johnny Knoxville, Rob Dyrdek, and others. In addition, he is a published children's book illustrator, Oil painting artist, and muralist.

He is very flexible to any theme or event, and absolutely loves drawing and working with people of all ages. You'll love your experience, and you'll love the way you look as a caricature from Damon.

Damon arts was honestly the best decision we made for our wedding ! He is SO awesome at his craft all our guests were raving about him! So much so, that we HAD to hire him an extra hour cause the line to get a caricature by Damon was still going strong even after the 3 hours we had originally hired him for! I will for sure be contacting DamonArts for any future events! If you want your event to be unique and stand out I definitely recommend hiring DamonArts! I promise you, you will not regret it and your guests will rave about him too!

Hiring Damon was one of the BEST last minute additions to our wedding. Everyone loved him and his drawings. I originally hired him for 4 hours and then asked him to stay until the end! So just save yourself the trouble and hire him for the whole thing! Thanks Damon you were fantastic!

Our company had hired Damon for a high-end VIP Event at our San Francisco office. We wanted to offer our clients a fun activity while they were networking. The communication before the event was excellent. Damon was very responsive and flexible as to our requirements for the event (we had a special theme). He showed up on time and didn't put down his pen even once during the whole evening. He stayed longer than required to finish up the last requests. Besides his drawing talent Damon has a very welcoming and social personality that put our clients at ease right from the start. We will definitely hire Damon again for our next event!
