Live Illustration for Events:  

Style & Fashion | Portraits | Sports | Music

“A good sketch is better than a long speech.”
Napoleon Bonaparte 

My illustrations capture the essence of a subject in a few quick scribbles.  My style allows me to portray the stories I witness by using loose and spontaneous strokes. Each illustration takes me just a few minutes to complete; subjects do not even need to pose still; I prefer them to act naturally while I capture them. And even better if they engage in a friendly conversation!


Live illustrations are perfect for weddings, parties, corporate events and retail promotions. Your guests will receive a unique and memorable favor which they will probably end up framing and enjoying every day.

Hi! I am Luis E. Aparicio, a Dallas-based illustrator who specializes in live sketching– style and fashion, portraits, sports, music and other events. I translate the stories I witness to line and color using a very loose but elegant and distinctive style.
