Show Description

It takes around a minute per person and I goof around and encourage guests to watch me draw the other guests. I bring a large, colorful sign with a timer so guests can time me- OR I can stroll around to where people sit and interact with them at their tables. I'm very friendly, ask a lot of questions and love to answer questions. Allowing people to watch me draw their friends and family is a big part of the show. To me it's more about entertaining everyone more than it is drawing everyone, even though almost always anyone that wants one gets one. Even with a VERY large crowd, usually the longe ...


I am the fastest caricature artist in the world (Officially won this award at the ISCA convention in 2016, Won Party Artist of the Year in 2015). I've been drawing since the late 80's. In the early 90's I started drawing in bars and restaurants for tips and learned quickly that the faster I drew the more money I could make. Naturally, I set my sites on drawing as fast as possible and learned to work the crowd. At some point it occurred to me that nobody else did anything close to this and I had found my niche.

1981369 Adam Pate is an extremely talented artist ... What he said he could provide, was provided; and, done in a very professional manner. He was very flexible in our scheduling needs. Attendees provided very positive feedback and enjoyed his caricatures. I would very much recommend Adam for any type of event where you want to add something fun and out of the ordinary for your guests/attendees. His drawings were a fun addition for our event and I would not hesitate to have him back at another event. -Connie G, Galena, IL (gig ID# 1981369) 2138021 Adam Pate was fantastic. We had a company picnic at a baseball game and Adam went above and beyond to make sure that everyone who wanted a drawing got one. I appreciate his willingness to take hi talents to the crowd. Our team members loved the drawings! -Colleen C, Avon, OH (gig ID# 2138021) 1824571 Adam did a great job. I really like his approach to the event, he wanders the crowd and goes to the guests, instead of sitting at a booth and having to have guests go to him and wait in line. He was funny and my guests were entertained. If you are looking for something fun and different at your next event, I would recommend Adam Pate. -Erin M, Olmsted Falls, OH (gig ID# 1824571) 1248892 Adam was a pleasure to work with. He designed a special mermaid background to fit in with my daughter's theme. He went around the room and interacted with guests. He is also a very talented artist. I highly recommend his work!! -Kerri T, Cuyahoga Falls, OH (gig ID# 1248892) 1202258 I was so happy to have hired Adam to be at my reception. Guests were commenting all night and are still talking about how awesome the cartoon guy was. BIG hit!!! -Joyce A, Toledo, OH (gig ID# 1202258) 1304732 He was great! -Diane S, Cleveland, OH (gig ID# 1304732) 1364325 Everyone one loved the artist. Very entertaining, professional, and so very talented. Would highly recommend to anyone. -Jennifer J, Avon, OH (gig ID# 1364325) 1450563 Adam was polite, friendly and quietly doing his work in the background. Our guests loved having him there. He was a big surprise. Everyone there had never been to a wedding reception that had an artist so he was a big hit. We were very satisfied with the experience. -Janet R, North Olmsted, OH (gig ID# 1450563) 1448828 My guests keep telling me that having a caricaturist at my wedding was "genius"! Adam did a great job, and I am so glad that I chose him as my wedding entertainment/wedding favors. Highly recommended! -Katie G, Knoxville, TN (gig ID# 1448828) 1256426 very fast and great job.

He is to be commended for that. Our guests had a blast and have commented on what a great idea they thought it was. It was a great idea to offer entertainment like that. I would highly recommend Adam! Thank you!!! -Joanne S, Cleveland, OH (gig ID# 1300248) 1441295 Adam was great, and a huge hit at our company party. He is very talented and his joking professionalism really wins over the crowd. People thought hiring him was a great idea, and had a great time! Thanks, Adam! -Stephanie B, Cleveland, OH (gig ID# 1441295) 1448427 Adam did a great job. He was very patient, using a soft, gentle voice while drawing pictures for 25 6 year old girls. Before the party he offered suggestions and was professional and respectful. Everyone loved the original party favors they left with and my daughter will have a book full of wonderful, funny memories of her and all of her friends! -Ann M, Rocky River, OH (gig ID# 1448427) 1595330 Adam was very professional yet relaxed and very people oriented. -Barb C, Cleveland, OH (gig ID# 1595330) 1627453 It was great having Adam at our "4th of July on the Hill" picnic this year. Guests are still telling me how much they love their caricatures and even more so after the fact. I would say most guests here had never taken the time to experience this,,,and were all delighted! Adam was very professional, went to the people….would highly recommend him for any occasion. We are especially happy with the caricature he done of the 8 little cousins together…..what a treasure for the parents and grandparents! THANKS ADAM -Susan R, Fresno, OH (gig ID# 1627453) 1791413 Having Adam at our fish fry was a delight and added a spark to the cookout. My guests were not expecting him and were pleasantly surprised! -Sandra B, Cleveland, OH (gig ID# 1791413) 1383821 He showed up late but was a hit with the guests and staff.

He was punctual, professional and very accommodating to all my guests. Adam is so talented. I cannot wait to have another function so I can request his services. All the guests enjoyed their " adult favour" to take home from the party. -Priscilla C, Akron, OH (gig ID# 2400241) 1274381 (no additional comments) -Nancy F, Detroit, MI (gig ID# 1274381) 2113622 We are so lucky to have found Adam to cover our event. He was such a pleasure to work with. So easy going...fast to respond to emails...and accommodating. He was so patient with us and worked on our couple's caricature until we were 100% satisfied. Our guests truly enjoyed the caricature experience. We used Adam's caricatures as our thank you favors with our 'couple caricature' printed at the back of our guest's caricatures. We got many compliments at the unique experience that Adam offered. He even sketched my husband and I into a couple of pictures, even though we refused to stay put and kept running to the dance floor! Would highly recommend him to anyone:) -Nisha B, Buffalo, NY (gig ID# 2113622) 622411 (no additional comments) -Sheryl M, Commerce Township, MI (gig ID# 622411) 1949963 Adam Pate arrived on time and ready to work. He was fast, personable and had a sense of humor. Drawings were excellent!!! It was such a nice change, instead of the usual Photo Booth weddings normally have nowadays. The guests got a kick out of it! Don't hesitate to get Adam! He is well worth it! -Kathy T, Utica, MI (gig ID# 1949963) 2649374 Adam was wonderful.

I travel often to do college events all over the USA. I can stroll around a loud, crowded room, with drunk people, in dim light, in bad/cold/hot weather, for long periods of time, etc.. I am VERY versitile and come well prepared and not afraid to try new things. Most of the events I am asked to do are cake compared to this. :)
