Studio caricatures are done at my home studio, and often involve me looking at several photos for inspiration, integrating the personality and hobbies or occupation of the model, and are more detailed. I enjoy doing these so much, as they are often surprises for a special birthday or that special boss. I love to see photos of the presentation and hear about the reaction. Also when you go to send the references on the quote page (to many photos just e-mail them separate at email@example.com), please have the faces in several different angles, and close up. If you want body situations please either help describe or send a picture of that pose. Other details such as landmarks or other objects include them as well. Ask me about a studio caricature.

Highly Rendered Caricatures in traditional and/or digital mediums
I can’t tell you how many times I have met people that have seen me performing my Art-Tainment (Caricatures) at live at Fairs, Festivals, networking events, Birthdays, weddings, trade shows, reunions,or in life and remember that I drew their caricature recently or years ago. They often say that it’s hanging over their desk or in their room to this day, but also that they remember me because I created not just a quality piece of art but also provide a service that is fun and memorable experience as well.
NEW: DIGITAL CARICATURES LIVE:
We now also provide digital Caricatures drawn on a Wacom Cintiq Companion, printed either 4-6″ or 8.5-11″ (prices vary depending on size) on a Canon ip100 printer, and is shown on a display screen to help create a dynamic art experiences. Prices are a higher because of the extra cost invoulved with printing, set up time, and other factors dealing with technology investments. You can see some of my work below:
“Lars entertained artistically at the April birthday party at the Fountains retirement center. I am not an employee but attended with my mother. The residents who attended the party so enjoyed his art work and his lovable personality. He relates so well with elderly people and put a lot of smiles on faces that may not have smiled today. He also gave the residents a lot of laughs. Do hope he will perform at the Fountains again. The residents absolutely loved him.”

I like to entertain a crowd while drawing and engage people even across a crowded room or field. How many drawings have I done? Thousands. People of all ages, races, sizes, and their pets too. I update my posterious site alot when I go on locations. You can find me doing live caricatures via my calendar, or hire me for your next event.
“Lars made such a great impression on my sales guys at one of our conferences that they told me to hire him going forward for every tradeshow we participate in, no matter where it is! His energy and attention to detail go above and beyond… so if you want to make a lasting impression at your next event, look no further and hire Lars!”
Portraits are generally done in my studio; however, I’m also available to create a portrait with live models. The portrait can be a serious fine art piece, or more of an extended studio caricature. I enjoy capturing the personality, appearance, and emotion of my portrait subjects. I must paint you – Send me a quote request along with some photos.
This section generally contains earlier work also. As a student, I did a lot of studies from the work of other artists who worked with different techniques and materials. I’m sure that I learned something from every drawing. I still view, appreciate, and borrow ideas from other artists work – whether it be composition, technique, color scheme, texture, or something else. Having my work studied and appreciated by other artists would be a great joy to me.
