Testimonials for our live digital caricatures

Court and Debbie were fantastic to work with! Very friendly, professional and accommodating with our constantly evolving needs. We have used them twice now at both corporate and trade show events. The crowds at our events LOVED the portraits. It was definitely the fan-favorite activation compared to others. We will definitely be using them again!

- Lauren Taigen, Otter Products

We have worked with Court for two of our annual events and he has been extremely professional and friendly. Court had everybody at the convention over to our booth and fully engaged. Everyone at the office has their picture hung up to remember the special day. Digital Event Caricatures are now our annual tradition!

- Nicole Zeuske, Navistar, Inc.

Court did a fantastic job drawing caricatures in our booth during our trade show in Las Vegas. Not only is he talented and personable, but he had the perfect set-up with digital display so attendees could watch the drawings in real-time as they passed by our booth. The caricature drawings were great for driving traffic to our booth and the perfect opportunity to start a conversation with potential clients... Highly recommended if you're looking for something fun and engaging.

- Emily Raines, Cetrom

These are a few of the many companies Court and Debbie have drawn digital caricatures for at various events over the years.
