Media Coverage

What’s Black & White and Read All Over?

It’s not often that one reads about caricature artists, or even the subject of caricature art, in the media — print or online.

But Joel has had the privilege of being covered in Charlotte and North Carolina/South Carolina regional-area publications, both consumer and business-to-business. As he likes to note, “caricatures aren’t just for the boardwalk anymore.”

Because there are many applications for them — not just at parties and corporate events, but through marketing/promotional efforts — it’s an opportunity to get the word out. That caricatures are a fun and unique approach that can even, now and then, out-perform photography as a visual medium or accompanying illustration.

Here are ads for Caricatures by Joel that have appeared, respectively, in Charlotte Wedding, Today’s Charlotte Woman and Hampton Inn magazines.
