Letter from the Artist


Even after four years of art school and many years taking on commercial illustration work, there was still some small part of me that wished art had stayed as fun as taking out the coloring book on Saturday morning and doodling away. 


I ventured into the world of caricatures in 1999, working on the waterfront in downtown Boston.


I discovered that I liked being able to make people smile using this skill. And I liked the challenge of having to keep things simple.


It’s a very addictive art form once you get the hang of it, and so when folks ask me “how did I get into this sort of thing” I respond laughingly, “more importantly, how do you get out ???” JK of course, I love my job, as silly as it may be. 


“Man is the most intelligent of the animals - and the most silly” - Diogenes


Peace, love, and happy doodling !

About the founder

Founded by artist Melita Lewis, Your Caricature.com has been bringing joy to thousands of party guests since 2006. 


Her vision in creating the company, was to merge skilled artistry with quality entertainment to create a unique ‘‘artistic” experience that fits with almost any type of event.


Melita began drawing at a young age and according to her mother, drew her first portrait at age two.


Melita’s first attempt at drawing a caricature was after graduating from art school. She had doubts about her ability to draw that quickly, as her biggest challenge in her illustration classes was meeting two week deadlines.  Her very first caricature took about an hour and twenty minutes ! She then spent the next five years working events in Boston, perfecting her drawing quality and speed. 


After moving to California in 2007, she took a job at Universal Studios in Hollywood. which helped her perfect her style and speed even more.


Today she has been know to draw over 20 people in one hour. That’s under 2.5 minutes per person.   


Melita and Yourcaricature.com has provided caricatures at events for many well known corporations and celebrities
