Thank you for being a part of the Fall Festival. This year’s 20th Celebration was complete with your personal caricatures.

Thank you for sharing your talent. I have the caricature framed and hung in my office so all the parishioners can enjoy it!
I hired Mr. Finifter to draw caricatures for 2 hours during my wedding reception, and he was an absolute hit! Children and adults alike waited in line to get their caricatures drawn, and crowded around just to watch him work. He is incredibly skilled and very imaginative. His caricatures delighted all of us, and if I'd known it was going to be this big of a hit with our guests, I would have had him come earlier so that all of the guests could sit for him. He was a total and complete professional and clearly loves what he does. Hiring him was a great decision!

We hired Doug at Caricature Concepts to draw caricatures at our wedding and were thrilled with this decision. Doug’s work was very high quality and set our event apart. Everyone was raving about this feature and we even received comments like “best wedding souvenir ever.” The likeness of his depictions is to be praised and each drawing had the perfect amount of personalization. On top of that, Doug made suggestions to ensure this portion of the event went smoothly and that we would be satisfied with the end result. He brought a fellow artist to ensure that there was enough manpower to give each guest a caricature. Communication was never an issue—which is a relief when planning such a big event. We felt that his prices were very reasonable and found that the cost was comparable or cheaper to other wedding features that people incorporate (looking at you photo booth). Doug was so easy to work with and we would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone looking to add this unique artistry to their event!

I do not have the words to express how incredible Doug was. His caricatures were better than I could have imagined. Our staff absolutely loved his work. His ability to draw everyone so well and in any scene you desire is great, making each one unique to that person (or people). Doug was very accommodating and stayed an additional 1/2 hour to complete everyone who wanted one. If you have Doug at your party you will be sure that everyone leaves happy and will talk about his work for days afterwards
