Hi there! 

I'm Vanessa J. Thompson!

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

I currently draw caricatures as commissions based off of client's photographs.

I also provide live entertainment drawing for parties, social gatherings, wedding receptions, mitzvahs, and corporate events.

I have created images for children's story books and coloring books for self-published authors, as well.

I dabble in some writing and have other hobbies like obsessing over anime, dyeing my locs various colors, adorning my hair with cute, quirky accessories, and wearing outrageous costumes!

You can learn more about me here!


Welcome to my website! Feel free to take a look around.
