About Bernard: Bernard simply loves to draw people funny! When seeing him entertain there is no doubt he is passionate about using his skills, which he has been developing since 1999. From Google corporate picnics to Major League Baseball games, Bernard has drawn at over 1000 events. He now lives in Portland, OR and can't wait to make you smile with his talent!
About Martenas: It all started in the 80s with a cartoon of a roadrunner drawn at the age of 5 years old. From there it was a love affair with Saturday mourning cartoons, comic books, and videogames. He’d draw anything he saw on screen or in real life, including people’s faces. He even made his own comics before the age of 18. During his 20s, he went to the Art Institute of Atlanta to get an education in graphic design, and pursued a career in graphic-arts abroad in Europe. He learned to hone his art talents & skills to become a caricature artist for a theme park... Six Flags Over Georgia. From then on, he would take his newfound skills on the road for events, seminars, and even lending it to charities; such as Atlanta children's hospitals & March of Dimes.Today, Martenas uses his homegrown talents, digital-art knowledge, and his renowned cartoonist skills to entertain people the world over. He is all about fun, personality, and a unique style with his caricatures; but also doing it with efficiency, accuracy, and skill. His motto…” it ain't a good caricature if it doesn't make you laugh, cringe, smirk, cry, or throw up.”Oh… and he still draws the occasional road runner!
