About Vendor 

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

I've been drawing caricatures since I was a kid. I've drawn them professionally since studying at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh—under the mighty John Johns—back in the 70s. I keep it simple: a Sharpie and a sketch pad. A caricature takes around 3 minutes. My philosophy is that a caricature should look more like you than you do. I'm an artist taking you seriously enough to capture something of your character as well as your likeness. Besides caricaturing, I'm a children's book illustrator with over 65 titles to my credit. I've been named Illustrator of the Year by the Pennsylvania School Librarians Association. I won a Reuben Award for Book Illustration from the National Cartoonists' Society. I travel to schools and colleges to speak about illustration, graphic design and children's literature.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on September 3, 2023From Lucinda, PA

John was very professional and engaging with our wedding guests. We and our guests enjoyed his caricatures and would hire again. Thank you, John!

John Manders:

Thanks, Phil! I thoroughly enjoyed drawing your lovely guests. Best wishes for a happy life together. —John

Club EventReviewed on May 20, 2023From Knox, PA

Only complaint is that he said it took him about 3 minutes to complete one sketch. He was paid for 3 hours but only completed about 24 sketches?
