Hi there! 

I'm Vanessa J. Thompson!

I am an artist from Columbia, South Carolina, USA.

I draw caricatures as commissions based off of client's photographs or as live entertainment for parties, social gatherings, and corporate events.

I also create images for children's story books and coloring books for self-published authors. Click here to view my children's book illustration work.

I dabble in some writing and have other hobbies like obsessing over anime, rocking vivacious wigs, and wearing outrageous costumes!

You can learn more about me here!

 

Welcome to my website! Enjoy!

There's no other possible explanation...
I'm just outrageously Vanessa!

I am creating wonderful memories one caricature at a time, and tapping into the world of children's book illustration one project at a time. Let me know how I may assist you!
