"I hired Howard to entertain at my daughter's sweet 16 party and he was a hit! The kids loved him and his drawings were great! Days later the kids were still talking about how amazing he was and how much the kids loved having a caricature artist."

BEHIND THE black marker​

Hi, I'm Howard Bender, a professional illustrator.  I've done countless illustrations for newspapers and childrens books. I've drawn for many comic book companies including DC Comics, Marvel, Disney and others.

For the past thirty some years I've been doing caricature parties and caricature portrait commissions for all kinds of events and individuals. Caricatures are fun entertainment for your parties, trade shows and all events large or small. Commissioned caricatures are a great gift idea!  They are drawn from your photos and make ideal retirement, birthday and wedding gifts.  Caricatures make a wonderful keepsake of a good time remembered!
