Cartoons & Caricatures by Dave: Lines on paper, at your command!

We understand that working with artists isn't always easy, so we strive to offer an effective blend of art and business. We're fun, provocative, visionary and talented, but we're also intuitive, timely, efficient, responsive, and strongly focused on details and deliverables. In other words, we work to light up both sides of your brain.

Principal artist Dave Stephens has been a professional artist for nearly 30 years. He worked as an animator for Marvel Production's Saturday morning cartoon Attack of the Killer Tomatoes before he branched out on his own to do commercial art and event entertainment.

In his San Diego studio, Dave specializes in cartoon character development, cartoon maps, private studio caricature commissions and commercial art for web, books, magazines, mobile apps, branding and advertising.

Dave has been commissioned and entertained for some of California's largest media groups, including Disney, NBC and Universal Pictures. Dave is a member of the International Society of Caricature Artists (ISCA). His recent clients include GE, Hilton Hotels, the San Diego Padres, Southwest Airlines, Sketchers and Symantec.

Dave and Danielle have been married since 2007 and working full-time together since 2011 when Danielle retired as an award-winning news reporter to contribute her skill set to the family business. Danielle's background in communications and design allows her to concentrate on client relations, sales, marketing and branding.

Thank you for reading our profile. We look forward to making art and doing business together!

Work Terms

Our work hours are flexible.

We answer inquiry emails and phone calls between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m., but if we are working on an assignment for you, we will get back to as frequently as possible, usually within the hour. Email communication is the easiest method for contacting us when we're managing a project, but we're flexible and welcome your texts, IMs, and phone calls.

We request 50% deposits to begin working on your project but will consider a smaller deposit for concept sketching/drafting. We will consider payment arrangements, too, so long as we are compensated in-full before the release of the final high-resolution art files/assets.

We offer discounts for prepayment and/or bulk commissions. Please work with Danielle, who will give you our best rate.

Thank you!
