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.

Review by Susan S.

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?

Corporate FunctionReviewed on November 17, 2022From Pittsburgh, PA

Pleasure to work with. Friendly, professional, and very talented. Our guests had a blast and we were so glad to have him there.

John Manders:

Thanks, Julie!

Review by Paula C.

PromReviewed on May 13, 2022From Clymer, NY

This was unique and fun for the students at our prom and provided an alternative to dancing. Mr. Manders was professional, accommodating, and kind! I could never say enough about this experience, but instead, have already provided his contact information to a parent who might be interested in booking for a graduation party. Thank you, Mr. Manders, for a memorable opportunity for our students!

John Manders:

Thanks so much, Paula! What a nice crowd of young ladies and gents. It was a pleasure to draw them. John
