About Vendor 

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Expert Caricaturist John Doherty specializes in drawing live caricature art at parties and in-studio drawings from photographs. Make a birthday party, business event, trade show, Bar/Bat Mitzvah, prom or shower or even a marriage or prom proposal an occasion to remember! Keep your guests and customers engaged as they witness him create incredibly great likenesses right before their eyes and completed in just minutes! Caricature will entertain the crowd and your guests will take home a keepsake drawing, sure to become a lasting memento of your event. John's engaging personality and quick wit make him a fan favorite with every age group! John Doherty is the recipient of an award as Best Corporate Caricaturist in the Boston area, and another from the International Society of Caricature Artists (formerly The National Caricaturist's Network) for speed. He has been invited to draw at the prestigious Salon of Cartoonists at St. Juste le Martel, France. John has drawn everyone from TV, Movie & Rock Stars to US senators and presidential candidates. A professional caricaturist since college graduation, John spent several years as the house caricaturist at the Bull & Finch ("Cheers") Pub in Boston. John is known as one of the most talented and fastest artists working in the New England area, generally he can draw between 20 and 25 people per hour in a black brush line "head shot" style. In color, with full hobby or sport depicted, the drawing output is usually 9-10 per hour. For an additional fee, we can entertain a room full of people and draw your guests on an iPad. As the drawing develops, the other guests can view the work in progress on a flat screen TV. This has been particularly popular with our corporate clients at shows, conventions and expositions to draw traffic to the booth. John recently drew in this style at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on November 19, 2023From Stow, MA

John was hired for my daughter's wedding and did an amazing job. Prior to the event, he confirmed with me what I should expect, he provided personalized canvases for the event. While at the venue, he was professional, personable, charming and his work was beautiful! I would highly recommend him to anyone and if the opportunity arose for me, hire him again! Five plus stars all the way!!!

John Doherty:

Thank you for your kind words, Nina! It was a lovely venue with a great crowd of folks, and you were a delightful client.
