About
Inspired by Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, Chuck Jones and local Seattle legend, J.P. Patches, Michael Hopkins unique sense of humor and absurdity has been bringing smiles to the faces of those who understood humor and consternation to those on the receiving end of his biting satire. Michael has proven over and over again, that the pen is indeed mightier than the sword.

Michael will entertain at your private gathering or corporate special event, by drawing his "Quick Caricatures" of your guests. Unless otherwise requested, all caricatures are black and white (with a slight pastel background).

Standard paper sizes are 11 x 14, however if you would like different size paper, just let us know.

Drawing paper with your special event's name or company logo, can be used for the caricatures at an additional charge and must be requested 2 weeks in advance of the event.

*A two hour minimum booking is required.

Whether it's a holiday event, a corporate conference, a wedding reception or any other special event, Michael will provide a unique experience, one that will be remembered forever!

We were thrilled with Michael! He was very flexible and accommodating in regards to what we needed for our wedding, especially when the timeline changed and we needed him to stay longer due to the long line of guests wanting a caricature! The caricatures were amazing! We highly recommend!

My guests enjoyed Michael’s talent and the entertainment was unique and interesting to them. He was professional and pleasant in all my communications with him and I recommend him for future events. He traveled a considerable time to get to Forest Hill and I appreciate that. He went above and beyond by creating some special drawings for friends of ours that we used as presents. They were a big hit! Thank you for helping to make my wedding cocktail hour a success!! Tammie M

Michael is a super nice guy, showed up early and stayed late. However, his caricatures looked nothing like the quality of the website. I wanted to hire him for another event but was disappointed with the way the caricatures turned out. Not sure if there was a miscommunication on what I was looking for, but the guests were not exactly thrilled with their souvenirs. I feel I should be entitled to a $100 refund. Once again, super nice guy, just very disappointed in the caricatures.

Michael Hopkins Caricatures’s Response:

I am surprised by my client’s negative review, concerning the quality of my caricatures. I believe that the drawings did turn out very well and from the very positive comments I received from the client’s guests, they were also very pleased with the results. Are they the same quality as my Original Pen & Ink Caricatures on my website? Of course not (this fact is stated on my website) My Original Pen and Ink Caricatures on my website are drawn with pen nibs and black India Ink and may take five hours to complete one drawing. While my Event Caricatures are drawn as quick entertainment for an event or special occasion and only take five to ten minutes each, to complete.
