I’m offering my talent as Caricaturist, Cartoonist and Illustrator in general. Not only will you find me to be a very creative person, I am a very patience and easygoing person as well, who will team up with you to produce a final product what will delight you. I don’t have a big ego, so I don’t come with any attitudes. The foundation of a great final product is communication … so let’s talk!


Portraits:Portraits can be done digitally, or I can prepare an oil painting on canvas, markers on paper, charcoal on paper, etc. (Please read ‘Technique and Materials’ at the bottom of this page for more information.) I respect the likeness of the person and don’t overly exaggerate any feature.

For a good job I request at least 3 clear pictures. I need to see details: eyes, nose, lips, etc. You can send them to me either by email or use the upload file feature in the 'Request Service' form

(see some samples here)





Caricature: It is a graphic representation of a person, but with some exaggerated features. Likeness will be present and recognizable as well. I do flattering caricatures, with the level of exaggeration guided by the client. The idea is to make everybody happy and never to offend anyone. Some common exaggerations are a big head with a little body or a person placed in a funny situation suggested by the client.

Caricatures are typically done digitally or with markers on paper. Other techniques are available by request. (Please read ‘Technique and Materials’ at the bottom of this page for more information.) If you want more information or you have any questions about this service, please send me a message through the 'Request Service' form.

I also offer a live entertainment service, creating caricatures at private parties or corporate events. For more information about this service, visit ‘Parties’or click here.



Illustrations in General: With an extensive artistic background, I am able to do just about anything. If you have a project in mind that I haven’t listed on my website (like a sign, a billboard, etc.) please feel free to contact me and let me know what you have in mind. I will be happy to give you a free consultation, and together we will see what the best option is for you. Please send me a message through the 'Request Service' form.

Techniques and Materials

I work with different materials and techniques, categorized it in two main groups:

- Tangible Artwork: Like a marker caricature, an ink illustration, an oil painting portrait.
Portraits, Caricatures and Illustrations in general are given in a 11 x 14 inches (27.9 x 35.6 cm). Most of the time the technique used is markers. I also offer illustrations in black ink only. Other colorig options are available per request.
I also offer Portraits painted on Canvas (20 x 24 inches / 50.8 x 61 cm). Other sizes are available per request.

- Digital Artwork: Like a mascot design, a digital illustration, etc. This type of work is given to the client by email or in a DVD. All digital illustrations are given in vector format and bitmap.

Vector Graphics: is the use of geometrical primitives such as points, lines, curves, and shapes or polygon(s), which are all based on mathematical equations, to represent images in computer graphics.

Vector graphics formats are complementary to raster graphics, which is the representation of images as an array of pixels, as is typically used for the representation of photographic images. There are instances when working with vector tools and formats is the best practice, and instances when working with raster tools and formats is the best practice. There are times when both formats come together. An understanding of the advantages and limitations of each technology and the relationship between them is most likely to result in efficient and effective use of tools. (source Wikipedia)


Bitmap: The BMP File Format, also known as Bitmap Image File or Device Independent Bitmap (DIB) file format or simply a Bitmap, is a Raster graphics image file format used to store bitmap digital images, independently of the display device (such as a graphics adapter), especially on Microsoft Windows and OS/2 operating systems.

The BMP File Format is capable of storing 2D digital images of arbitrary width, height, and resolution, both monochrome and color, in various color depths, and optionally with data compression, alpha channels, and color profiles. (source Wikipedia)


Vector vs Bitmap: Any vector file can be printed in any size possible; From a very small print to a gigantic format. Is also ideal for logotype, Offset Print, etc.
Bitmap isideal for web and for some printing process. You will receive a 11 x 14 inches file in 3 standart resolutions:
- High: 300 dpi
- Medium: 180 dpi
- Small: 72 dpi
