In addition to our artists who draw at events as entertainment,Goofy Faces also has 9 retail stands located around the country at major family attractions coast-to-coast. Each location is run by a talented and trained manager. Manager Cliff, (upper right) was kind enough to draw a caricature of each manager so they'd each have their own. Drop by one of our stands this summer and have one of these fun artists or their trained staff draw or paint you and your family!
It's Autumn once again and that means it's time for the annual Art & Apples Festival in Rochester, Michigan. This marked the 8th year in a row that Goofy Faces was there to draw attendees and promote our services. For the 2nd straight year, guest artist Glenn Ferguson was there to help draw faces for 3 days. Kids and families enjoyed their caricatures. Even Hardcore Pawn star, Les Gold stopped by to see us at work.
Goofy Faces celebrated its latest retail location at the Los Angeles Zoo this past weekend just in time for Valentine's Day. Over 200 applicants applied for artist positions with our company. Only the best ones made the cut. This video features a few of the artists in action during our grand opening celebration. If you live in the LA area, be sure to drop by and see them at work on weekends in February and open daily starting in March.
Once again, Goofy Faces was drawing caricatures at the Art & Apples Festival in Rochester, MI. This year, guest-caricature artist, Glenn Ferguson was in town from Orlando, FL to help Robert draw and entertain guests of the festival. Glenn draws caricatures at Universal Studios, Orlando full-time so people got a chance to see some awesome work right here in Michigan. The 3-day affair was a lot of fun, minus the rain on Saturday.

It's that time of year when we gear up our retail operations for our zoo locations
throughout the midwest. This week I was in Cleveland training our new artists at
the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. All 5 new artists did a great job learning about
retail caricatures in only 4 days. On Thursday, we gave them a chance to draw
the public for free so we could see them in action. Although the weather was a
bit chilly for drawing, they had a continuous crowd for over 2 hours. Zoo guests
were very pleased with their work. Some of the guests were from Belgium. They
were stranded in Cleveland due to the volcanic ash and smoke from Iceland. The
zoo allowed them to visit for free and we drew several of them for free as well.
It was fun showing them a good time while they enjoyed an extra few days
in the U.S
