- ENTERTAIN WITH US -
We offer both traditional and digital entertainment. Traditional entertainment caricatures are drawn by hand in one or more types of materials including ink, pencil, marker, chalk, or pastel on high quality paper. Illustrations are available in color as well as in black & white.
Here's what you can expect from our traditional caricatures ...
Exaggeration - We only emphasize and capture the best qualities in the individuals we draw. Our aim is flattery and feel-good humor - in other words, we draw everyone a few years younger and a couple of pounds lighter.
Attention to Detail - We draw personalized (and humorous) caricatures of faces or full body depicting activities, hobbies, occupations, and sports.
Speed - Black and white head shots take 3 minutes per face while full body drawings take 5-7 minutes each.
No Waiting Lines - We distribute numbers to guests as they line up for their caricature so they can enjoy the event and revisit us when it’s closer to their turn.
Sizes - We use high quality, thick, standard size paper, typically 8'' x 10 or 11'' x 14''
Pre-printed Paper - We can provide pre-printed papers with personalized script, logos, event date, and a border.

KOUROSH (founder of Creative Caricatures)
What has made Kourosh a success beside obvious artistic talents, is his unique sense of humor. Early in his life, Kourosh gained his degree in architectural engineering. But being somewhat of a “NIGHT OWL”, he opted to stay self-employed, so that he wouldn’t have to get up early for work each morning. Kourosh has dedicated his life to creating caricatures and cartoon illustrations. His work has appeared in Time magazine, on CNN, and in many ads, in a variety of publications. Kourosh created caricatures for the 1988 Democratic convention, and the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, GA. He has been commissioned by many fortune 500 companies, the list including: Coca Cola, Mercedes Benz, Ford Motor Co., AT&T, Sears, etc. From the day Kourosh decided to pick up a pencil and start drawing, the world has not been the same.

It takes me approximately 3 minutes to draw a BIGhead Cartoon - so guests don't wait too long in line.
In recent years, I have added full-face caricatures (with or without little bodies) as an option and I also offer DIGITAL caricatures drawn on an iPad! My goal is to create a cartoon portrait of my subject and I strive for a likeness that YOU will like.
