Custom Caricature Cookies, Sign in Book, Cake & more!

I have been creating caricatures and caricature gifts for a repeat client in Connecticut and her beautiful daughter for the past several years.  Each year, the client gives me details of details to add to the caricature such as adding new born twins, the family cats, favorite toys, special colors, etc.  This year, she ordered a whole slew of treats to accompany her daughter’s caricature.  Here are photos of this year’s goodies, as well as caricatures of her daughter over the past years:

Caricatures at Bat Mitzvah in NYC

On Saturday, NYSketches provided a caricature artist at a bat mitzvah at Bridgewaters at South Street Seaport in New York City.  The event was very tasteful, with a band playing rock & blue tunes, as well as the required Hava- Nagila.  The host also set up unique activity stations- a ‘Tikun Olam’/ Repair the World’ floral arrangement making table to be donated to local nursing homes, and a Memory Book station where guest could make their own page in the Bat Mitzvah girl’s sign in book.  The host provided polariod cameras with which to snap a photo and craft supplies to decorated the page.  The guests also were give a choice of caricature types- either color/ head and shoulders, or black and white with body/ theme so as to have enough time to accomodate all the kids, and a few adults too!  Here are photos from the event:
