Client Feedback

Emily was the hit of my daughter's first birthday party, not just with the kids but with teens and adults too! I would recommend her to anyone. I am so glad she was willing to travel an hour and a half for us. I received lots of compliments from the guests and she was able to hand out some business cards. We will definitely be contacting you again, Emily! Thank you for making our party extra special for McKenna. Mom, 1st Birthday Party, April 2017

I knew from reviews that Emily was a talented artist, but watching her in action was mesmerizing! The booking process was extremely easy and Emily was a delight to talk to - you can tell she is passionate about her work! Throughout our entire cocktail hour and reception Emily worked tirelessly, as there was a continuous line. She always had a smile on her face and everyone loved her drawings. (The drawing of my grandparents was priceless!) Live caricatures is such a wonderfully unique touch to weddings - I'm so glad we had the opportunity to work with Emily and would definitely book her again for another big occasion. Bride December 2016

Emily was amazing. My wedding (6/12/2016 in Monroe, NJ) had ~ 30 kids < 18 years old in attendance. Emily was able to draw them in groups, keep them engaged, and managed not to lose her sanity in the process! She was a consummate professional and and drew lovely caricature portraits for adults as well. I only wish she had taken time to eat! I would definitely recommend Emily for any event. Her style was a perfect bled of portrait-style and cartoon-ish embellishment, depending on what the subject wanted. My (now wife) and I got our portraits done last, and they came out amazing. it's been framed already and it one of our favorite keepsakes from the day. Groom, June 2016 

Emily was the caricaturist at my son's Bar Mitzvah last weekend. She was amazing! We had over 75 kids and she was able to draw all of the kids over a four hour period. The pictures are amazing and really look like the kids! All of the parents were so excited to see the pictures. Emily was extremely easy to work with and I would definitely recommend her! Parent, Bar Mitzvah. June 2016 

 Emily was absolutely fantastic. Having a caricature artist at our wedding reception was so much fun and our guests absolutely LOVED it too. We debated between a photo booth and having a caricature artist...and so happy we went with something a lot more unique. So many fun and lasting memories for everyone; Emily's work is amazing!!! She was an absolute pleasure working with to set everything up, and customized everything perfectly for our special day. Bride, December 2016

Very pleased with Emily. I have used Emily for the last two years for my annual family bbq. My entire family looks forward to the caricatures. Emily is very engaging and professional. Family Reunion coordinator, August 2016 

 We LOVED Emily!!! I picked Emily from the GigMasters' website because of her kind, flattering, loving drawings and her positive bio. She made all of our employees feel so happy and positive about themselves. Watching her draw provided so much entertainment - giggles and smiles all around. It was a sweet way to do team building. We were so impressed with her skill and her professionalism was top notch from start to finish. Thank you for making our company event so memorable and special. General Manager, Corporate Event March 2016

Caricatures By Emily far exceeded my expectations with a digital caricature of someone at work in a setting that was very detailed. The "someone at work" was created from a couple of pictures I sent. The setting and likeness was phenomenal, a testament to her creativity. I described the scene I wanted in an email and listed some of the unique objects, people, and vehicles in it. She returned a draft for review and changes you can modify to your exact requirement. All this in less than two days! I don't usually provide feedback unless the service is extraordinary. I strongly recommend using this vendor for all your manual or digital caricature needs. Client, caricature digital caricature gift commission March 2016

What an amazing artist! Emily was fast and talented. She is very professional and personable. Party goers have a one of a kind piece of art from Emily as a memento of the special occasion. ALL our staff wants to know when we will have her back. Truly, an awesome experience!! Corporate client, December 2015 

We had such a wonderful fun time with Emily! She was just as excited as I was to be my surprise secret guest at "The girls Christmas party" at my home! Emily's creativity, art work, professionalism and sense of humor was outstanding. Each and every one of us ladies loved our caricature prints! Emily is VERY talented. Emily made sure each individual print was detailed, fun and very personalized! A unique take home gift that will always remind us of what a hysterical and fun time we all had that holiday girls party! Holiday party Dec 2015 

Fantastic experience. We would gladly recommend Emily!Corporate cient, Feb 2016 

Emily was simply amazing. Everyone (from 3-85) enjoyed her artwork and it was a big hit at our wedding. I can't tell you how many people told me how much they loved the pictures. My husband and I will cherish the portraits that she did of us. I can definitely recommend her, she was great. Bride, Dec 2015

Emily was fantastic! To begin with...she communicated with me prior to the event. She was on time both nights. She was friendly with all of our guests. Talented??? Her talent is overwhelming!!! I would recommend Emily a million times over again. Thank you so much, Emily! Corporate client, Nov 2015

She is great. You will not be disappointed!!! Corporate client, holiday party Dec 2015 

Emily was a huge hit at our wedding! She was professional, accommodating, and her work is the best! Would recommend her without hesitation, and will definitely book her again for future events! Groom, wedding August 2015

I booked Emily for a carnival themed family BBQ.. I was very pleased with her professionalism and her drawings.. Emily was the hit of the BBQ.. My guest were both surprised and pleased.. If Emily is a representative of GigMasters I will definitely book with GigMasters in the future.. Hostess, backyard BBQ, August 2015

She was on time, very professional, and extremely talented! A lot of people coming to the party were shy at first and didn't want their portrait done. As one went they all started watching, got interested, and decided to go for it. Everyone ended up getting theirs done! I've been told by many she was a huge hit! Can't stress enough how great she was. Worth every penny! -Mom, graduation party July 2015 

Emily was great!!! She is an awesome artist!!! I love how she came dressed according to the theme of my party. It was great having her, I will be calling her for all future parties. Hostess, girls' night out birthday party, August 2015

Fabulous!! Such a hit at my son's second birthday! Thank you so much! Mom, 2nd birthday party, August 2015 

I chose Emily over several other vendors because she had great reviews on Gig Masters and offered a beautiful portfolio to view. I went into the event knowing that we'd be taken care of because Emily handled everything up front and was very excited and enthusiastic about everything she did. She was a pleasure to work with and a delight to have at our internet marketing company for the day! - HR administrator, corporate event, July 2015

Emily was AWESOME!! She was professional, polite and engaging with the guests and her talent speaks for it's self. After the first few portraits were completed and the guests saw Emily's artwork, she had a line the entire event!! Mom, graduation party, June 2015 

Emily felt like a part of our team by the end of the convention! She was a total hit with all of the attendees and really helped us drive traffic to our exhibition booth. The time it took for her to do a drawing was the perfect amount of time for us to give our pitch to potential clients. Emily is very easy to work with, and she is a great artist. Manager, corporate booth at convention, June 2015 

Emily was AMAZING. She attended our non-profit's picnic and worked for three hours. She drew caricatures of our campers who have Down syndrome and she did an awesome job. She captured their individual likeness without emphasizing their "disability." We would absolutely use her again! Administrator, PALS picnic, May 2015 

Emily was wonderful! We had so many compliments on her work at our recent wedding. It was our guests favorite part of the night. We would definitely hire her again for another event! We highly recommend her to anyone getting married and looking for something fun and unique. Bride, wedding May 2015 

Emily was a pleasure to work with. Not only was she professional and very helpful, her artwork was wonderful and our guests were extremely pleased. I look forward to using Emily again. 

Emily did caricatures for our wedding. She was so nice and accommodating throughout the whole process! Our dinner ran late so she stayed an extra half an hour to make up that time we lost with no extra charge. I would definitely recommend her! She goes above & beyond! Bride, wedding, May 2015 

Everyone loved her caricatures. It really added something special to our Car Show! Manager, car show, April 2015 

 

 

 

I should mention at the outset that I've known Emily for many years, and I mention this because I have had the opportunity to view scores of her caricatures on social media.  I never get tired of looking at them, and I'll tell you why.  Emily does more than capture what the person looks like; she somehow manages to depict their entire personality right on the page.  For many years I thought this was just a perception I had, but one day she posted a caricature of a woman I've known since high school.  Let me tell you, the image so accurately depicted her personality that I had to do a double-take to make sure it wasn't one of those animated "Harry Potter" photographs.
So, when my wife suggested that I start a blog to showcase some of my tall tales and attempts at painting, I immediately thought that the site would be enhanced by a caricature by Emily.  I contacted her, and she made the process as easy as could be.  She asked me to email few good photographs of myself (if there is such a thing).  Then we discussed what it was I was looking for.  Her pricing schedule is written clearly on her web site, so we chose the appropriate one, and she was off and running.  She sent periodic drafts to ensure I was happy with the direction in which she was going.  From the first pencil sketch it was clear that I would be better off giving her full artistic license, because she really knows the business.  By the time she got to the finished product, I marveled (and was horrified at the same time lol) at how much it looked like me.  Even more incredible was that it looked a little like my mother, who to my knowledge Emily never met and even more incredibly most people say I look like my father.  And yet she accentuated parts of my face that are part of my mother's ancestry.
So, let's talk about the business transaction a little more.  Have you ever worked with artists?  They can be quirky and the business transaction can be awkward.  This is not at all the case with Emily.  She is upfront about costs, deadlines, and requirements.  This makes her perfect for doing corporate events where there is a bean-counter watching from a business perspective.  She is unobtrusive, which makes her perfect for your wedding or Bar Mitzvah.  Her prices are very reasonable, which makes her perfect for your family gathering.  And she is fun, which makes her perfect for your birthday party. 
Thanks, Emily, for making the ordinary extraordinary!

He absolutely loved-loved-loved his picture. As soon as he got home, he hung it up in his mancave....lol. Thank you so much! Client, 30th birthday airbrush caricature, February 2015
 
 Emily - just a note to say thanks again for your time and awesome caricatures! The girls loved having you at their party - and what a fun memory for their friends to take home! Client, Valentine's party, February 2015
 
Absolutely amazing! I've met other caricature artists and Emily is by far the BEST. Not only did she nail personalities she had it together with little kids! She was able to get the personality and features of the little ones, remember it and let them run off if needed. EVERY guest was amazed by Emily and are just raving at her caricatures, as well as her as an artist. Emily is personable yet very professional and had everything in order from communication prior to the event all the way through to the end. If an opportunity arises, I will certainly use her again! If I could give her 10 stars I would!  Client, 70th birthday party, January 2015
 
What a terrific experience. Unique activity was enjoyed by entire team of 20+ people. Emily is warm, engaging, quick and produces amazing caricatures. Highly recommend. Client, corporate dinner, January 2015
 
If I had to describe Emily's work in one word it would be AMAZING!!
We have been going to a yearly work function since 2006, when my kids were 3 & 5, and Emily has done many pieces or art for our whole family.  We have them all framed and hanging on the walls in our home for all to see.  Such amazing talent you have Emily.  We consider ourselves very lucky and blessed that you capture the beauty of our family and put a silly twist on it.  Thank you!!!  I highly recommend Emily!!! Guest, Holiday party, 2014
 
 
Emily is an all around 5 star gal! She made our Holiday party such a hit. I received 12 emails the following day about how much our guests enjoyed Emily and her caricatures. Emily is very talented and very friendly! She was part of the gang within minutes of joining us. She is relaxed and fun and made great chit chat with our rowdy group. I would recommend Emily for any event. The conversation and fun that her talent brought to our party was priceless. If you're looking for entertainment that is easy going and will bring smiles to your guests faces, chose Emily! Client, Holiday Party 2014
 
Emily is awesome! Her artist skills are fantastic and her portraits were the talk of the party! She created "keepsakes" for many of my employees that will be cherished for years to come! A true professional with exceptional skills! Client, Holiday Party 2014 
 
I didn't have a chance after the party for my twins' Bnai Mitzvah in December to tell you how much everybody loved your drawings. I got so many compliments!  Thank you so much, we'll keep you in mind for future events and recommendations. THANKS!!!! Client, B'nai Mitzvah, Dec 2014
 
 
Emily did a wonderful job. We were not sure how our guests would react to a caricature, but they were overjoyed with her. We had booked her for two hours and she was a big hit, so we asked her stay an additional hour so everyone, and a few more, got more than one opportunity to sit in front of her. She was early, very easy to be with and she never took a break the whole time she was there. We would strongly recommend her to others, the young to the old enjoyed her talent and it was a big plus to our 30th holiday party. Client, Holiday Party 2014 
 
Emily was a pleasure to work with and my guests were very excited about the caricatures they took home with them. She is extremely talented and I would absolutely use her services again if the opportunity were to arise. Client, Bat Mitzvah, Nov 2014

Emily is fantastic! We've gotten our caricature done by her twice, every time we go to the state fair of Texas! And she's great at what she does! :) I love her personality and energy and you'd think after 10+ hours of her doing caricatures at the fair she wouldn't have a lot of energy but she puts a smile on her face and does wonderful work! I absolutely love it! Worth every penny! Customer, State Fair of Texas 2014
 
Grand Slam!!! Emily was on time and ready to get drawing. Everyone at the wedding reception loved their pictures. She is a phenomenal artist and such a pleasant person to work with. Thank you so much Emily! Bride, Wedding reception, August 2014
  
You did a great job, everyone did look like they had fun. I posted my caricature on FB, it was excellent!! Client, 70th birthday party, August 2014

Thank you! Everyone loved it. I gave out your website to a lot of people! Client, Graduate sign-in caricature, July 2014
 
Emily Anthony was exceptional! We only needed 3 portraits of the people we were honoring and we sent her photographs of them. She delivered the 3 caricatures to our office in time for our company picnic and the work was phenomenal! We look forward to using Emily again in the future! Client, corporate gift caricature, July 2014
 
 
I was planning a high school graduation party for my daughter, and felt I needed some sort of entertainment that would appeal to everyone and make for a memorable occasion. One of my first ideas was to bring in a mobile photobooth to have people get pictures together. After researching this and thinking about it, I stumbled onto the better idea of a caricature artist. My only experience was at amusement parks where I watched the artists work but never took the time or money to have one drawn. I found Emily Anthony on the net and corrosponded through E-mail. She was AWESOME at the party! People who did not know each other began to talk and laugh among themselves. Watching her work and seeing the reactions from the people she drew when done was so much fun! It turned out to be a much better choice than a photobooth at less than half the price! Dad, Graduation Party, July 2014
 
Emily arrived early and her talents were the perfect addition for our pool party. The moms enjoyed watching her draw and the girls were delighted with their caricatures. It was a special day and well worth the expense. Mom, birthday party, June 2014 
 
Emily was beyond awesome! She really added a beautiful touch for my wedding and all my guests LOVED their pictures! Emily arrived early and was extremely friendly! She even offered to do a picture of my husband and I after the wedding, since we where so busy during the reception greeting guest. I would recommend Emily for any event!!! If you don't book her, you're missing out on an awesome experience!!!! Bride, wedding reception, June 2014 
 
 
Emily was amazing. Everyone loved having their pictures drawn and Emily is a very talented artist. Every single person at my daughter's graduation party kept on commenting how great Emily was and how they loved their pictures. I was very, very happy that we hired Emily to draw for my daughter's party. You will not be disappointed if you hire Emily for your next party!!!!! Thank you so much Emily!!!!

Emily,

Thank you so much for the fantastic caricature.  I printed out the 11 x 14 and matted it for signing per your suggestion.  I also printed the party favors on magnet sheets using a regular ink jet printer, and used a self-service cutter at Staples.  Lastly, I printed an 8 x 10 which the supermarket bakery used to transfer the image onto a birthday cake.  Everyone loved your art work.  You really helped me make the event special.

Emily was AMAZING. We had the HONOR of having her at my son's First Birthday party yesterday and let me just say that everyone is still raving about her!!! Emily is the real deal. If you are looking for someone professional, kind, and extremely talented, book her. We used the caricatures that she drew as party favors- the kids will always have something to remember my son's first birthday party with! Her work is amazing. I can go on and on. I'll leave you with this, she is truly a professional and her passion for what she does shows in her work. Beyond happy with her services. Emily,thank you again for a job well done.

Emily was awesome! I really enjoyed everyone's reactions. I could not have picked a better mode of entertainment or a better person!

We hired Emily for our daughter's Sweet 16 party on 1/25/14 and are so very happy we did. The weather forecast for that day was a little iffy with the threat of snow, so Emily made sure she hit the road in plenty of time to get to the party. That alone told us that she was very dedicated to her commitment. Emily drew for three hours and all of the kids absolutely loved their pictures. (many of them used their caricatures as their Facebook profile pictures) Emily is a very pleasant lady and an extremely talented artist. Class act all the way!
Client, Mom of Sweet 16, January 2014
 

It was so much fun having Emily at our Halloween party! All of our guests enjoyed her and loved her caricatures. The party was a zombie theme and she drew everyone in zombie form with cute additions and captions to the pictures. She was friendly, professional, and courteous. I would definitely recommend her as an addition to any fun event! 
Hostess, Halloween Party 2013
 

We had 40 people at our home for a family reunion. Emily's gifted drawings truly made the party an unbelievable success. She drew everyone there and some more than once in a short amount of time for reasonable $$. We will definitely ask her to attend our future parties and draw for our friends, she's amazing!

I hired Emily to draw my wife and I for our one year wedding anniversary. She came to our home and did a fantastic job! It was a great  gift, and my wife and I felt very special as she was there for only us. She even did a few drawings of my friends from photos that we wanted to give as gifts. She showed up on time and was very professional. Best of all the drawings are great!! Thank you again Emily!

I just wanted to thank you so much for the caricature of my daughter Jessica.  It was just so perfect. It's a surprise for her so she hasn't seen it yet, but I'm sure she will love it.  Everyone that has seen it so far loves it.  Also it was very easy and quick doing this through e-mail with you.  I looked at a lot of caricatures on the internet and I really liked your pictures.  Anyway just wanted you to know that I really appreciate it.

  • Emily was amazing! Her pictures were the hit of the party. I love how she captured all of us in a way that was fun and not at all negative or mean. In addition to her incredible talent, Emily is a pleasure to work with. I would recommend her to anyone I know and will definitely use her again. Five stars! Bride, 6/16/2012

  • Our experience with Emily was absolutely awesome. We hired her for my mother's wedding reception and she literally did not stop for 4 straight hours. The moment she set up there was a line and I saw guest after guest walking away with smiles on their faces and showing off their caricatures. So many people told me how great they thought the idea of having a caricaturist at a wedding was, and I can't think of a better one to have at any future events than Emily. She did a terrific job, she's a phenomenal artist, and is such a kind person as well. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Emily and I am so pleased to have found her through gigmasters. Daughter of bride, 6/10/2012

  • Emily was such a pleasure to have in my home. She made my husbands 45th birthday soo very special. Emily is amazingly talented with a personality that will warm any heart! Both the children and adults loved her work and personality. I am still hearing about her to date. She answered all of my emails (and there were many) with such professionalism. Emily really, really, loves what she does and it shows. I would recommend her in a heartbeat and would use her again. Client, birthday party April 2012

  • Just wanted to let you know what a huge success Mark's surprise party was, and Emily was definitely one of the keys to the party's success!  She is absolutely delightful and was very engaging with all of the guests.  She carried on conversations with each guest as they sat for their picture.  Her caricatures were very well done, and people really enjoyed showing theirs to other guests.  She worked quite quickly and completed caricatures for everyone who wanted to have theirs done. Thanks so much for making the arrangements for her appearance at the party! Wife, 60th Birthday party for husband, 2012

  • Emily was the best - personable, patient, just went with the flow as we shuffled guests in and out of her chair - our guests have been calling all morning about how much fun it was to have Emily draw for our party and the kids were so excited to have something special to take home than a goody bag that gets tossed out the next day! Mom, child's birthday party, Jan. 2012

  • Emily was the hit of our party. She arrived early, efficiently went about setting up and was non-stop throughout the entire time. Our friends are still talking about her amazing likenesses and the humor she displayed in each. She made each guest feel special, not rushed, and the results were fantastic. I would recommend her without question to anyone who wants to have a party that will be talked about for weeks. Hostess, holiday party, 12/10/2011

  • Emily was a hit at our employee party. She delivered on everything she promised and immediately developed a rapport with our group. She added to the fun of our event and we would highly recommend her for your special occasion. Organizer, corporate holiday party 1/28/2012

 We hired Emily for the wedding rehearsal dinner for our son and daughter-in-law to draw caricatures of the guests. She also drew a large caricature of their engagement photo, which everyone signed and is now framed and hanging in their home. Emily also provided small copies of the engagement caricature that we gave each guest as a memento of the evening. People still talk about how unique and fun Emily's caricatures were -- and many have the caricatures hanging in their homes. Emily was fun to work with and didn't leave until everyone who wanted one had a drawing - which meant staying past the originally agreed-to time. Client, father of the bride, January 9, 2012
 

We had Emily come over for our daughter’s birthday party as one of the entertainments for both kids and adults and she was a big hit! Emily is very easy going and friendly, and interacts well with people while remaining very professionnal. She is careful about people’s sensitivity about their looks and does not make too harsh caricatures even though they remain very funny and resembling to people. That said, if you have enough sense of humor to laugh at yourself, you can ask her to draw a “meaner” caricature and she will be glad to do it. Emily is a very talented caricaturist. She truly “sees” people and seems to catch their features at the very first sight. Drawing fast is another strength she has, which is very valuable for parties with a lot of people or for caricatures of small children who don’t sit still.Everybody at our party was thrilled with their caricature.To summarize, Emily is the artist to go to if you are looking to give the gift of a high quality caricature.

Emily,  I cannot truly begin to express how pleased Doug and I were to have you at our wedding.  Having you draw the caricatures of every one of our guests was the perfect addition to our wedding reception.  Your caricatures will be displayed in homes from Oregon - to Colorado - to West Virginia, and of course Delaware.  We are already thinking of our next family reunion and how we can manage to have you be part of that event.  Thank you so much, you were truly welcomed and appreciated.

 (To Agent) I just wanted to shoot you an e-mail to let you know that Emily exceeded all expectations last night!  She was wonderful, and the caricatures were a huge hit! I am happy to say that mine is currently being displayed on my desk in my home until Tuesday when we return to school and I put it up in my classroom. I'm sure Emily will tell you - we kept her an extra hour (due to popular demand). Thanks again for everything...I'm sure I'll be in touch again soon!

Emily is so sweet and accomodating. Everyone loved her, she was personal and just simply a pleasant person. On top of all this, her talent is amazing ! She did an excellent job with every picture. She is without a doubt a 5 STAR ! I would bring her back in a minute and not consider anyone else !
Hostess, 50th birthday party 2011


 I cannot say enough about Emily Anthony's talent! I was looking for a unique gift for someone who is hard to buy for. I thought a caricature might be a good idea. I came across Caricatures by Emily. She was very friendly and very easy to work with. When I got the finished picture, I was thrilled! It was great! The likeness was amazing! The gift was a hit. Not only with the person I bought it for, but with everyone he shows it to, and he shows everyone!

The experience was fantastic! Everyone loved their pictures. Emily was very personable thru the entire event. And also very helpful to me answering questions etc. And there were numerous comments on her talents and that she was the best caricaturist they had ever seen. I would recommend her to anyone wanting this type of service. She made it very entertaining. I cannot say enough good things about her and her work.  Mom, graduation party 2010

 You were a pleasure to work with leading up to the event and even more impressive on the day of!! Everyone was raving about you at the wedding and excitedly showing off their pictures... people enjoyed just watching you work.

 Emily, I spoke with you the first Sunday Orioles game of the season against the Mariners. You did an outstanding job on my older son's caricature a couple of years ago. I would like you to do my younger son's caricature as well. I was wondering when you are planning on being at Camden Yards this summer? Baltimore Orioles caricature concession customer, 2007

 

 We had the opportunity to have Emily draw a caricature of myself and my friend. We have those pics framed and hanging in the reception area of my business. Almost daily we have someone remark about the amazing likeness and expertise of these drawings! Emily has the type of talent that can only be admired, especially by me. Keep up the good work!
