Who does Apple, Microsoft, Blackberry and Motorola hire when they are looking for entertainment for their events? Rafael from Cartoon You! Rafael is the fastest artist in the business. No one else guarantees 20-25 guests drawn PER hour in black and white. A fast artist ensures that your guests don't spend the entire time waiting in a line. His style is flattering, and he can talk and draw a guest, making them feel comfortable and forgetting that they are being drawn. He's not just fast, he is accurate. Featured in publications such as The Orlando Sentinel, Orlando Magazine, Create Magazine, Orlando Leisure, and Orlando Arts, Rafael Diez is the owner of Cartoon You Caricatures, a nationally rated 5-Star caricature entertainment company that provides affordable and professional caricature artists for all types of events - from small family parties to huge corporate conventions.

If you need a party artist, a gift caricature, group caricature, or studio illustration, Cartoon You can help you with one or more artists for your event. Caricature is a proven satisfier, eliciting laughter and delight from both sitter and audience alike. These comical portraits often end up framed and hanging on the walls of their subject's homes and offices for years afterwards.

Corporate FunctionReviewed on August 21, 2023From Kissimmee, FL

Rafael was amazing! He was on time, created great conversation with all the people in the chair, and was an overall joy. People were still talking about his art at a completely different event!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on July 28, 2023From Mount Dora, FL

Rafael was amazing!!! My only complaint was that he got my name wrong when signing the charicatures lol but it’s not a big deal! It’s just a funny story we get to share with our friends! I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a unique experience for guests!

Rafael Diez-Cartoonyou!:

My apologies Melissa! Oh no. My apologies for any mistakes with names. I’d be happy to correct it and revise the drawings! Just send me any pics and I’ll rescan and resign the ones that may be incorrect. Easy to do in the computer. I can mail you the images. Happy to do it! The wedding was so lovely.
