Marlene G Caricature Artists

Marlene G - Illinois Caricature Artists

Located in a NW suburb of Chicago, Marlene has been a freelance illustrator since 1986, who offers a whole assortment of creative services from doing drawings for product development in giftware, to editorial/book and humorous illustration, to caricature. She also fancies herself something of a humorous writer, but can handle the serious matters, too.

Her illustrative art and caricature work can be done in markers or pencil, color pencil, ink or watercolor or even mixed media. Marlene's party work is done with markers in black and white and gray, with some spot colors, and comes ready-to-frame in a white cardboard matt.

She is a graduate of Southern Illinois University with a degree in art education and had 12 years of work experience with graphic production before going into business for herself.

She has years of teaching and workshop experience, working with children and adults of all ages and is moving in the direction of animation and writing.

The caricature artists were one of the students favorite things at the event!
We had a very positive experience with all of the caricature artists (Kenny D, Marlene G and Rozalia S) at our prom. The students said the artists were one of their favorite things, and the lines were long to prove it!

Marlene was great!
The event went really well. Marlene was great as usual. She does a good job of interacting with the students and engaging them in conversation while they are getting their caricatures done. Thanks for the follow up! We have another event coming up in April so we will definitely be back in contact with you!
The kids loved her!
We were more than completely satisfied with Marlene Goodman who was the caricuturist at our event. She was FABULOUS! The kids loved her and the adults wished we would have had her for a few more hours. She is top notch and we will ask for her again.
Paul Goren, Senior Vice President, Spencer Foundation
Marlene was fabulous. She was very professional and friendly and is a terrific artist. We would hire her again if we were to have a caricature artist at another event.
