Customized watercolor portraits and cartoons are available along the peir. These artist are best at drawing you as your favorite Disney character in Head & Shoulder or full body images. Be sure to inform the cashier of any special details, like your favorite color, if you want to be drawn like a Disney Character.in a special pose, or if its a marriage proposal. And it is ok to tip your artist if they drew a special detail to your art work. Magu most requested to draw mermaids & buzzlight year. David draws extreme characters for those who do not take themselves too seriously and enjoy laughing outloud. John L cartoons almost look like portraits, and is most flexible with special request. when your hair is in a ponytail, he will ask you to let it down. and hats worn backwards don't come out looking so cool in 2d images, so you should just not wear it or turn it around. John works at both parks. We watched him on our first day. The next time decided to get it done, he was at Disneyland and almost sold out. then decided to have the kids drawn on another day at DCA. He did amazing work quickly & we laughed the entire time he was drawing. Lisa the cashier was so friendly, who also does the parisols, best of all she will give the most accurate appointment time for each artist. This was one of the most memorable "attraction" of the day. These artist are truly gifted and have created this to be THE Place in the World, to get a portrait/cartoon done. The Most Memorable Souvenirs!
