DANI'S CARTOON PORTRAITS ARE FLATTERING, NO WRINKLES OR WOBBLY BITS.
As soon as Dani could hold a pencil, she was drawing and by the age of 12 family and friends were being cartooned.
Based in Sydney, Dani has over 25 years experience in Cartoons and Illustration for Design Studios, Corporate and Publishing Houses both Australia wide and internationally.
Live Traditional Caricatures
Fantastic as an icebreaker. Create bursts of laughter with cartoon portraits for any type of event – award nights, conferences, corporate events, Christmas parties, fundraising at gala charity events, product launches or to attract attention at trade shows.
Guests feel safe as Dani quickly and expertly brings their best features to life with wit and style. Dani's portraits are consistently rated as worth keeping and framing. Many guests have even made them into their facebook profile picture.
Live Digital Caricatures for Corporate Events
Quick cartoon portraits of your guests are created on a graphics tablet and printed on the spot in colour on A5/ A4 photo paper. Images can saved onto a USB and even be streamed live on to a large screen in the function room.
A different marketing tool for product launches, conferences, workshops and seminars. Your special stationery design can be added to the portraits.
Live Caricatures on Boards or Canvas
Celebrate a team win by having the team immortalised on board or stretched canvas. People sit for the portrait one by one. A digital photo can be taken if time is limited. Once all people have been drawn in black outline, simple blocks of colour are added and final touches completed.

I recently booked Dani for our 2012 Christmas party. The sketches were very well done and all the guests commented on how accurate the caricatures looked. We were so impressed by Dani’s work that we also asked her to do a larger sketch. This was of all the male staff who were still sporting there moustaches from our fund-raiser for Movember.

For our Park Operation Manager’s 20 year anniversary, we wanted to find a unique gift that represented his long and tireless dedication to the animals at Featherdale Wildlife Park. After seeing some of Dani’s great work at the Zoo and Aquarium Association Conference, we thought a caricature would be a perfect gift. Dani reflected Evan’s personality perfectly in the artwork. It also featured his favourite animal at the Park, the Koala.
We didn’t hesitate when our Park Manager recently celebrated 30 years at the Park. Rick is a keen bird enthusiast and Dani was able to include some of his favourite birds in the picture. It was a truly beautiful piece of art and Dani was able to complete it with only a few days notice. We would not hesitate in recommending her services to those seeking a unique and special gift for someone.

Dani Vittz has presented numerous Manga workshops for teenagers at Ashfield Library, was part of our program to launch the National Year of Reading with her caricature drawing session and was a popular performer at our World Cafe readers evening with another caricature session. Ashfield Library always tries to work with local artists and writers where possible in our programming. We appreciate Dani’s professionalism, friendliness and of course her outstanding artistic talents. We look forward to working with her more in the future.

“I just wanted to send a quick email to thank you again for providing such fantastic entertainment at the engagement party. So many people messaged me the next day to let me know what a great idea having a caricaturist was, and by the time I got home at 2am, I checked my Facebook and everyone had already changed their profile picture to the caricature you drew of them. You're one in a million – being personable and talented!”
