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.

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!

Damon was awesome at our work event. He created such fun schetches that everyone was standing around watching him draw couples and single sketches. Everyone leaving took such care of their drawings because they wanted to frame their caricature pictures. Thank you for making our work event awesome!

Damon was the perfect combination of fun, talented, and professional! We booked him for a wedding reception, originally for 1.5 hours, but everyone was loving it so much that we asked if he could stay later. He ended up working all the way to the end of the night, an additional 5 hours (!!) and people were still crowded around him and having a great time at the end. Highly recommended!

AMAZING!!! He did Caricatures during our wedding reception and it was a HUGE hit. We asked him to stay 2 or 3 hours longer because our guests were loving it so much. He's a great artist, easy to work with, and a great sense of humor.... overall AMAZING doesn't even get close to describing how happy we were with him.

BOOK HIM! Damon is INSANELY AWESOME! His pricing is deserving as his quality of work was spot on! I promise you won't be disappointed! We hired him for our corporate event and he was by far the highlight of the evening. We were awed by the fact that he draws in a black marker! Clients, employees and guests were gathering around him all night and watching one another being drawn both in extremely funny and exaggerated faces as well as cute/handsome caricatures. His personality is inviting and outgoing. We actually ended up asking him stay for the entire event and he had no problem doing so. We're planning to hire him for several future events. Thanks Damon!

I hired Damon for my kids wedding and OH MY GOODNESS Damon was a hit! His drawings were perfect for each guest. I had him draw my son and his bride first just to get the interest of the guest and he NAILED it! The line was continuous all night and our guests had fun sharing their drawings. I would hire him over and over again! Erica was so much help getting things planned for our event. Thank you guys for all your work! I absolutely loved you guys! Thanks again!

As a wedding coordinator, I am always looking for fresh ideas. I hired DamonArts as a way to provide a personal keepsake to each guest attending the wedding. We kicked off the service by Damon sketching the bride and groom (fantastically done in old hollywood style as requested) and guests went crazy, immediately lining up for their own. Not only was Damon professional, skilled, talented and fast, he was also extremely likable and funny. The guests loved talking with him during the sketching time and raved about him and his service. I will consider DamonArts for all future events I book in CA, as well as recommend him to everyone I know.
