We have much to celebrate this month. For instance bringing in our good friend, Caricature Artist and Cartoonist, Chad Engle. In 2015 we found ourselves an artist short at an event. Patty contacted Chad, at the time an acquaintance who had expressed that he had done some caricature drawing and who also lived in the town that the event was in. Chad showed up just in time to save the day. Read the rest of the the story HERE.

Cartoon Ups is celebrating our 35th year anniversary. That's right, 35 years ago Nick started drawing caricatures LIVE! What better way to celebrate than to share in our nation's celebration during the month of July. Summer is in full bloom and we are staying busy in one of the most exciting, most festive months of the year.

Weddings are a big part of our August schedule. If you have an upcoming wedding and would like to have us at your reception to help entertain your guests or give them a great keepsake commemorating your special day have a look at our Wedding Page CLICK HERE

Our schedule is filling up for the year. We will have two booths at Pop Con Indy this coming August and we will be drawing all day at the Street Dance Festival in Noblesville during their Bicentennial Celebration on July the 22nd. We hope you will stop by and check us out. For more information check out our APPEARANCES page.

"That's Not Real Art" is one of the new pages on our site explaining how digital artwork is developed in comparison to drawing in the real world.

Of course March is when we celebrate St. Patrick's Day on Friday the 17th, a perfect opportunity to get a drawing of you and your favorite leprechaun. Cartoon portraits make great gifts and don't forget we can come to your St. Patrick's Day party and draw your guests. Give Patty a call or you can email her. Her contact info is HERE

Since Halloween is full of scary images we figured we could have some fun with a couple of classics. Nick's favorite monster movies are still the classics. No not Freddy Kruger or Michael Myers, the REAL classics. Frankenstein, The Wolfman and topping his list The Creature from the Black Lagoon.


These three groovy goulies are our way of saying Happy Halloween. If you want you can share your coloring on our Facebook page for all the world to see. Just send a picture of your favorite coloring/activity page and we will share your work.

Keep in mind these are intended for private use only. Have fun.

Things are starting to warm up as schools start to open. August is moving Cartoon Ups to a better place in 2020. Thanks to COVID19 the digital aspect of cartoon portrait drawing is catching on. This medium allows the subjects being drawn to watch as the process takes place. The responses have been fantastic.

We look forward to utilizing these available platforms that enable us to provide fun memories and keepsakes to keep those memories alive. If you are interested in having a live virtual event, either for your company, school, organization or family please contact Patty via email at: Patty@CartoonUps.com

Stay tuned, it ain't over till it's over.

Virtual Cartoon Portraits

There have been a lot of changes over these past four months. One of them has been drawing folks in the locations they have been quarantined to. A lot of schools instead of having the typical end of the year events on campus opted to have online events where Nick could draw their staff and students wherever they may be all over the country.

Although LIVE social gatherings and celebrations are the best way to get portraits drawn with friends and classmates the Virtual Cartoon Portraits offer a unique chance to have these drawings done. So far Nick has drawn at events that allowed people from locations all over the world to come together in a fun cartoon portrait. In early July a family that had members in South Korea, Colorado and Ohio.

We are using the latest digital innovations to bring people together in fun ways. We are working on videos that will demonstrate our newest as well as traditional features. Check out our latest commercial. We made it for one of the agencies that represents us. CLICK HERE There's a lot more on the horizon. Stay tuned.
