John did a wonderful job at my daughter's wedding. He was a big hit and I dare say that the caricatures he did will be treasured for many years to come. Best decision we made about the whole entire wedding!
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.
