Artistic Takeaways

Caricatures and Portraits for St. Louis Events!

Everyone loves to have something to take home from the event. An impression of your guest as a caricature, portrait or silhouette cut out will be something that lasts for years to come and reminds them of your special event. With our large number of artists we can fill any event size in the Greater St. Louis Area!


Caricature drawings are special to us at Circus Kaput because this time-honored tradition began with the circus!  Early circuses offered various styles of pictures of patrons to take home, and this was always a favorite of the townspeople as a way to remember their day at the circus.

We carry on this tradition at your event in many clever ways.  We have old-fashioned black and white caricatures for guests to take home, one artist can provide 12-15 of those.  One or more people, or even dogs, can be in the picture.  If given enough advance notice, we can include your logo or event name on the paper for a small fee.  We can also go high tech and provide caricatures on iPads!  These can be printed, or simply emailed as digital images.  Your guests can pick them up from a digital gallery after the event.  We can even project or magnify the image from the iPad so everyone at the event can watch the drawing being done.

For the more eclectic tastes, we can provide artistic pen & ink portraits of your guests.  These are fast impressions of your guests done individually.  Our artists can produce about 12 of these per hour.  They are amazing renditions and so much fun to show around after you've had yours done.  These are great for parties that have an artistic flair or want something a little different.

In recent years, silhouettes have caught on as event entertainment, after enjoying a lot of success across the pond in Europe.  Artist's hand cut a black paper silhouette of each guest's profile, with unbelievable accuracy and likeness.  These are mounted to paper and can even be framed before being taken home by your guests.  Again the paper can include your logo or event name, for an additional fee, if we have plenty of notice.  Silhouette artists can produce about 12 per hour.
