Powell - Michigan Caricature Artists


A caricature by Powell is great way to create fond memories for your guests and provide them with a souvenir of your party. With over 40,000 portraits drawn and 34 years of experience, Powell’s primary goal is to capture a likeness. What good is a caricature if it doesn’t look like the subject? With this in mind, Powell will engage guests in a fun loving, friendly way while producing a gentle portrait that makes friends smile and subjects enjoy and will want to hang up. It is not uncommon to hear guests state “I’m going to frame this.”


Powell loves drawing your guests doing their favorite activity and loves to be challenged to draw anything your guests can come up with, he has yet to be stumped by any request. Drawing an average of one portrait every 5 minutes, he has drawn up to 10 heads on a single caricature and can draw from cell phone pictures and photographs. He works in marker and colored pencil on 8.5”x11” high quality 12 point cover paper stock. After capturing the likeness of his subjects and depicting them in their favorite activity, the final artwork is placed in a clear plastic bag for safe transport.
