Graduation Caricatures: Gifts and Parties/NEOPal Blurb for May 6, 2011

Still befuddled for gift ideas for Graduation? I would say, just give them money, since that seems to be one of the most important things a new young adult needs.

I WOULD say that, but then I would screw myself out of some business. That’s no good.

Here is the blurb that I submitted to the North East Ohio Performing Arts List, or NEOPal for short, that is a very vital part of the performing and visual arts community in my part of Ohio. It may spark some inspiration for gift ideas. Even if you don’t live in NE Ohio.

“High School Graduation is coming up soon and you want to make sure you have this once in a lifetime event be the best it can be and be affordable! But every good entertainer seems to be booked for the weekend of your party? Why not try something different? Something that will make your party much more memorable.

“Mike Leuszler (of is a professional party caricaturist who has been turning people into cartoons for over six years, having appeared at many local festivals and events in the area. He is ready to entertain your guests with a combination of performance art and drawing. 

“Mike will capture your guests’ likenesses in good old pen and ink while chatting with the victims… er… subjects and assorted onlookers. The crowd gets to chuckle and guffaw as they watch the artwork being created, and in the end, the subject(s) get a great party favor.

“Mike requires only a small space in which to work his magic, and does not disturb the people who do not want to be involved with the proceedings.

“If you already have an entertainer booked, Mike makes an excellent secondary way of engaging your guests.

“And if you have a graduate for whom you want to buy a unique, memorable gift, ask Mike about his custom caricature commissions. Get your grad the gift that will capture them forever, shows them that you care, and that will be impossible to regift!

“If you’ve already made arrangements for graduation, don’t forget that Mother’s Day and Father’s Day are just around the corner, along with summer birthdays and weddings!

“To find out more, you can contact Mike via email: or go to his website,  Mike’s summer schedule is filling up fast. ”
