EventToons Inc. is devoted to providing live digital caricature services to corporate customers. It was founded in 2010 by Doug Shannon, a San Francisco based caricaturist of 25 years, legendary for his deadly accurate caricatures and entertaining repartee. Doug and his crew of associate artists, each carefully chosen for their exceptional talent and people skills, use state of the art technology to deliver a unique blend of art and marketing that has taken the trade show and corporate event world by storm.
EventToons artists leave their French easels and chalks at home, arriving at your venue with 21st century tools for creating likenesses. The artists draw on iPads or other tablets displaying every stroke on an external display, giving onlookers an intimate inside view of the artistic process. Caricatures are completed confidently and quickly, so that a vivid full color print is in the hand of the subject, start-to-finish, within 5-10 minutes.
Although caricature is an art, EventToons is first and formost a marketing company. Your logo and/or message is prominent at every step of the process, from the external display to the final print. With badge holders and clips added, you can watch your clients wearing their caricatures around the venue, acting as walking billboards your brand.
At your corporate event or trade show, your guest and clients are your most important responsibilty, and EventToons artists share in that responsibilty whole heartedly. EventToons caricatures are never insulting or offensive. Doug's approach is that a caricature is a "toon-over", a way to celebrate our individual differences and uniqueness, not to mock them. For that reason, there are rarely complaints, in fact you may have to reassure a person that yes, you do look that good!
And the fun doesn't stop after the event. Digital caricatures can shared instantly by text or e-mail or downloaded at EventToons.com or the EventToons Facebook site. It isn't uncommon for Doug to run into someone at a trade show who shows him a caricature he'd drawn two years before at another show still residing on their cellphone.
Wherever your event, show or conference will be located, EventToons can be there. Averaging over 70 trade shows and conferences a year, EvenToons has been seen in nearly every major city in the country. Whether it is a three day conference in Atlanta with Doug, or a holiday party for Google in San Francisco with six artists, clients know that the EventToons' unique blend of talent, experience and technology will deliver both raves and ROI.
