“We totally loved your talent and entertainment. Thank you so much, Joel. “

— Rosa Vargas, Private Party Host

The role of a caricature artist, of course, is to reproduce a likeness of the subject in a whimsical, somewhat exaggerated manner. The keyword for Joel here is likeness.

He prides himself on capturing the essence of the individual, with obvious characteristics as hair, eyes, nose, ears, skin patterns and more providing the distinguishing features.

But it always comes back to likeness. After all, if a custom caricature doesn’t look like the person, both artist and subject have been shortchanged.

“Constant Constant is so grateful to have such awesome and artistic customers such as yourself. I viewed your Caricatures when you phoned into our support line and I was absolutely blown away by the detail, and the amazing content you create.

“We had Joel for our holiday party in lieu of a lunch or dinner and it was a huge hit! Everyone loved their caricature and several people mentioned that they now have an extra gift for their spouse or loved one! We enjoyed having him here — he was professional, courteous and, best of all, he does awesome caricatures! We would definitely use him again! — Suzanne Weston, Client Services Advisor, Pinnacle Financial Partners

“Joel was our wedding cartoonist and drew caricatures for the guests and was a huge hit!  He was great to work with from start to finish.  He has a great personality and he was on time, professional, and great with all of our guests. There was a line of guests from start to finish, we even ended up hiring him for more time because so many people wanted Joel to draw them. Joel is a very talented caricature artist, he was able to capture each individual’s personality and it was great to watch him work. Guests took their drawings at the end of the night and some said they were even going to get them framed and hang them. I would definitely recommend Caricatures by Joel for any event!!” — Lindsay Bonsignore, Bride

“What do you get the man who has everything? A custom caricature (of course)! That’s exactly what we did for Jim Rogers, our retiring CEO.  We enlisted Joel to create a piece that included the retiring exec and our other top leaders. Joel was SO easy to work with – especially on our tight schedule. He was able to capture our vision and improve upon it in ways we never could imagine. Our top leaders are still talking about how impressed they are with the final product.”  — Lee Freedman,  Corporate Communications, Duke Energy

“Joel’s work has been a signature statement for our restaurant from day one. In truth our bar wouldn’t be the same without them. We have ten of his pieces currently hanging and plan to commission more as the years go on. Each piece is meticulously detailed and shows a level of skill rarely found today. I can’t count the number of times I have seen guests admiring them. He is a pleasure to work with and is a consummate professional. I would recommend his work for whatever your needs! Thank you again, Joel!” — Bryan Crossan, General Manager, Harry’s Grille & Tavern
