Services

Our main service is entertaining at parties and conventions.

Cartoon exampleOur goal is to put a smile on your face and give a gift that will be long remembered with the clean style of drawing.
We do not mock or ridicule your guests with exaggerated drawings.

Having a caricature artist at your event is not only entertaining, and makes a thoughtful gift that can also act as a promotional / advertising product for your company, but it is also an ice-breaker at parties.

The cartoons are drawn on a heavy card stock that is suitable for framing: 8 1/2" x 11".

Black and White front views, 3/4 Views or Profiles take about 2 minutes each. (Color takes a little longer and is not suggested for large groups).

Guarantee 30+ Black and White drawings per hour!

There is no event too large or small for us to cover. We have a staff of excellent artists that work with Tom that will help to make your party a successful and remembered event!

So, Let Us Entertain You! You will be pleased you did!

Hey Tom, It was a very rare joy to meet you last night. I've been an anonymous admirer of your work for years now. The caricatures you've done of my grandkids; Valentine, Viviana, and Vincent Sanford are precious.Single-handedly you've created family treasures, heirlooms even, that we will prize for ages. It is indeed a pleasure to make your acquaintance at long last. I hope you can excuse my rock star groupie exuberance, but in my experience, artists you admire from afar seldom turn out to be people you'd want to hang out with. Stay well and be strong,
John Echavarria

 Hi Tom, The drawing is so darling, amazing I love it!!!! You did such a great job of capturing their essence!  You have great talent, no flaws! The dress is uncannily similar to her wedding dress!  And he has a full head of hair – he'll love it! Very debonair and stylish! Anne Armbrust (Client in Rocklin CA)

 Hi Tom,

   I have been meaning to write to you.  You were a big success at our party.  I really appreciate the fine job that you did.  Everyone loved you.  Thank you so much.  It is funny, but my brother and I were talking about my party, and I told him about you.  He lives in Ohio, and well, he got married out here back in '98.  Anyway, I said that your work reminded me of the artist who drew at their reception.  I told him your name, and he looked at his caricature that he has framed, and said that you were that artist.  Needless to say, I had to look up my old one.  I did scan it.  So here it is. (See Number 14 under "Black and White Drawings")  Thanks for the great effort.  Thanks for the beautiful artworkAnd thanks for making my party a wonderful experience for all. Take care, and hopefully one day, we can have you at another outing. 

 Best Regards,
Steve Hardy

When special events come around, everyone wants to have a place to go for a gift that is beautiful, personal and unique. I was very fortunate to find the perfect gift in the artistic caricatures by Tom Kelly. On his website, I was immediately attracted to the images which caught my eye with their playfulness and warmth.   I sent him a photo file, and explained a little about the personality of the person I wanted him to sketch. He offered some ideas for a background and then made a perfect likeness from my photo, capturing the essence of the person and creating a piece of art which continues to produce smiles to this day (see Gallery/Special Projects Numbers 1 and 3)Tom's artistic skill and ability to communicate and understand his clients' needs are seamless.  The next time you need to have a truly special gift that will continue to warm the recipient's heart long after the wapping has been opened, I wholeheartedly recommend that you explore the artisitic medium of caricatures with Tom Kelly.

"This gentleman is an artist !  He is fast, funny and a joy to work around. He takes people's faces and makes them into cartoon characters. His many years at Disneyland have given him an amazing repertoire. Used at parties, receptions, conventions, special events. Good with kids and adults alike. Very professional and presentable. Always smiling and professionally attired. This guy is great !"

Thank you !
