New in 2015: Visual Artist Entertainers!!
Have you ever met someone who brings something so special to your life that you just don't feel like you can live without them - a match made in heaven? We know all about it!
About 5 years ago, Suite Elegance was introduced to Adam Pate - "The Caricature Guy" at a bridal show. His was a unique talent - we'd never seen anything like him in our then 16 years of working in the wedding and special event market. What really impressed us was his ability to make an outstanding sketch rendering in less than 60 seconds! The friendship was born.
Fast forward these five years. Adam has become quite successful in his own right here in Northeast Ohio - and, indeed, across the country! There are now several options for caricature artists in the local area, but we have yet to find one who can accommodate 50-60 sketches in under an hour - all of his local competition averages under 30!
In 2014, Adam diversified to bring together his passion for his art with other local visual artist entertainers in Northeast Ohio, creating 'Something Fun and Different' and making him a one-stop shop for any kind of entertainment you can imagine - sketch artists, painters, silhouette, balloon artists, street magicians, and specialized musicians such as Suite Elegance Entertainment, ironically enough! A partnership was conceived!
In 2015, Suite Elegance Entertainment has been reborn so as to bring Adam Pate and his eclectic talents into our family of entertainers, along with some of the best talent in Northeast Ohio. We believe that this brings a new level of professional - and elegant - entertainment to our discerning clientele here in Northeast Ohio. We are thrilled to be working with Adam and his team diverse talent.
Without further ado, let us make the introductions:
The Caricature Guy
Adam Pate is the originator of the Speed Sketch Caricature and is arguably considered the fastest caricature artist in the world by his peers. A sketch takes about a minute. Adam is capable of drawing up to 200 people in 3 hours, while strolling. Guests are encouraged to watch, interact with, AND TIME HIM(!) while he draws. Live video examples, referrals available.
A self-taught free-lance artist since 1978, Tim has perfected several styles of visual artistry, including airbrushing, caricature, oil painting, and silhouettes. Tim has an extensive portfolio of logo work, design illustrations for screen printers, and murals for restaurants, as well as many fun and personal pieces, some of which are showcased here. Tim's talents speak for themselves, and he is a wonderful entertainment addition for any event and venue.
Silhouette cutouts are fun and nostalgic, and Tim can produce 20-30 per hour. They only take a minute or so. Duplicates are made automatically! Each cutout is pasted to a custom background and the duplicates can be put in a scrapbook (and participants can leave a little note on their page!) - a fantastic memento of a memorable event!
Tim's caricatures are equally entertaining and extremely detailed. Tim differentiates himself from Adam by offering the more traditional caricatures created in front of your guests on an easel, He can also stroll through your event and engage your guests individually if you prefer. With an average yield of 20-30 caricatures per hour, Tim captivates his audience wherever he goes!
