About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

In addition to our in person events we have done over 300 live VIRTUAL or hybrid FULL COLOR DIGITAL SPEED SKETCHERS caricature shows since March 2020. Just like our "in person" shows, we can draw black and white digital caricatures in about a minute per person and we can add color, backgrounds and body situations to the presentation too if there's time. We can draw everyone present on the call including PETS and combine the images from the calls to draw people in groups together! We have developed a very polished presentation and a relaxed atmosphere for your guests to hang out in online. Our LIVE VIRTUAL CARICATURES show is perfect for your in person guests AND those attending from home both, so that everyone can join in the fun from wherever they are. All that is needed to participate is a smart phone, tablet or laptop computer. We can use whatever virtual platform you're most comfortable with. We can send you the files as we go for you to print directly at the party so that your guests can take home a hard copy of their sketch or we can send the digital files out after the event so that they can be printed and shared. We are very versatile and able to do whatever it takes to fit your needs at a moment's notice. For larger events we have multiple artists on the same call and we can easily add a logo, message or background to your artwork as well. Give us a call and we'll show you exactly how it works and talk about any specific needs you have. Looking to add a bit of fun to your virtual meeting? Got a group of people that are looking for a fun way to reach out to people you haven't seen in person in a while and brighten their day? Got a recent grad or a birthday coming up? Give us a call and we'll take care of everything! We can even make up customized coloring pages, mazes and games to keep your guests busy while they watch others being drawn and wait for their turn! OUR IN PERSON ARTISTS cover the Detroit/Columbus/Pittsburgh area (based to Cleveland). Kansas City, MO area (based in KCMO) and the NYC/Philadelphia/Washington DC/Baltimore area (based in New Jersey) - When you call THE FASTEST CARICATURE ARTISTS IN THE WORLD more of your guests will get drawn, shorter waiting times, more fun at your party. - In most cases, we can draw EVERYONE at a party!! We're very easy to work with, very open minded, INSURED, travel friendly, easy pricing and easy to set up. - Your guests will love watching our artists draw their fellow guests. It's an interactive entertainment experience and we strongly encourage audience participation. - Our artists have the delicate skills needed create a fun drawing with an accurate likeness and a positive reaction from each individual guest. - When appropriate, we stroll around to where guests are for the entire party, rather than have them come to us. We don't use easels so we are very versatile and mobile. This makes us more useful than a Photo Booth and other novelties that just sit there and are only busy for a short while at most parties. - B/W drawings on (8.5x11") are easy to photocopy so guests that get drawn together can share their drawings. (and a self serve photocopier is available) DIGITAL is even easier to share! - Guests can hang up their drawings on our optional display so that they can show off their artwork and guess who's who until they are ready to go. - When a stationary set up is appropriate, we bring a large, colorful sign with a TIMER on it, so guests can time our drawings and play "beat the clock". Each drawing takes around a minute per person. If there is a line, it is positioned so that the guests can SEE what the artist is doing as much as possible. Digital caricature artists will bring a monitor to broadcast their drawings being made in real time. - More than one artist is available for extremely large crowds. - Drawings can be customized with your personal message, theme or brand. - In the case of a promotion or trade-show, we can hold quick 'on message' chats with guests while drawing them. (Your spokesperson can intereact directly online) About the artist/owner: Adam Pate is the originator of the 60 Second Speed Sketch Caricature. He is regarded by his peers as one of the fastest, friendliest, most versatile and experienced caricature artists in the world, and was recently awarded the title of 2016 FASTEST CARICATURIST IN THE WORLD and 2015 PARTY ARTIST OF THE YEAR by the International Society of Caricature Artists (ISCA), the premier organization for caricature artists world wide. (out of several hundred participants from around the world) Adam has so far coached 6 other similarly skilled artists to do a performance like his. They are the only other artists in the world that do this kind of performance. (We travel ANYWHERE)

Corporate FunctionReviewed on June 24, 2022From Beachwood, OH

We hired Adam for our corporate summer picnic and so glad we did! He mingled in with the group and made sure everyone got a sketch that wanted one. I love seeing all the pics posted up throughout our office. Job well done and would hire him again.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on May 7, 2022From Wooster, OH

Adam went above and beyond! His talent cannot be matched! So many guests commented that his art was a special touch to an already wonderful event. Enjoyed the way he moved about the room sketching. He has a very friendly personality. It was great that he also brought a copier so many of the guests made copies of their art and left messages for the Bride and Groom. I strongly recommend Adam for anyone wanting a special touch for their wedding. I want to Thank Adam


Aww!! Thanks Barbara! It was so nice to meet and draw your wonderful family!

WeddingReviewed on September 15, 2018From Akron, OH

Adam Pate is a wonderful man. He is quite the talent. He is extremely personable. He routinely asked if you wanted to watch him draw. He also chatted it up with our guests which was very nice. Since he is so talented he was in high demand, some of our guests kept asking for their turn, he tolerated them gracefully. I HIGHLY recommend Adam Pate. He is pricey, $800.00 for three hours. My daughter asked for a character artist, all the others weren’t as fast and I was concerned about leaving guests out. I was torn spending so much not knowing how it would turn out. Hiring Adam was the best decision we made. He made the wedding a hit for sure! Worth EVERY penny!
