I painted iPad portraits of guests at Blue Bear Live 2019 annual fundraiser on the Ohana Level of the Salesforce Tower in San Francisco.

  

Portraits created at a private holiday party in Stamford, Connecticut. Each couple received digital files of their portraits and the cool replay video, plus an 8×10 framed print to take home.
  

  

  

This iPad portrait was painted from life at the Michael Cerbelli’s “The Hot List™” 2019 in Philadelphia. Each portrait subject received the special and unique take-away of digital files of their portrait and the replay video immediately on completion, which they could then share on their social media.

Thank you again for your support of the ILEA Gala! The character drawings were huge hits and added significantly to the success of the event!” ~ Sean F.

  

“Definitely worth it! We hired Jeremy for a trade show in San Francisco and he was very flexible to do whatever we wanted. We had him split between doing digital portraits and traditionally painting 2 canvases and it all worked out well. He had all his equipment, was very friendly to our colleagues and provided some quality giveaways for all the attendees. Would definitely hire again in the future!”
– Jordan B., AdvantEdge Healthcare Solutions, re live painting at Anesthesiology 2018, San Francisco

I have been a live event artist using digital paint media for over twenty five years. My clients have included companies, museums and private individuals. I’ve performed at a wide range of events, including conventions, conferences, trade shows, award galas, incentive and corporate meetings, openings, company get-a-ways and holiday parties, VIP suites, inaugurals, weddings, open houses, and other celebrations. I created live digital paintings for the Cirque du Soleil TOTEM show in San Francisco; at the opening of the David Hockney: A Bigger Exhibition at the de Young Museum, San Francisco; in the Nuit Blanche Festival, Toronto; live event iPad portraits at the largest custom car show in the world, SEMA, Las Vegas; and was the featured iPad artist performing live at the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s America Now!Innovation in Art event in Washington DC.

This video shows me painting portraits of custom car legends at the world’s biggest custom auto show in Las Vegas. I usually use an iPad Pro with Apple pencil though I am happy to work on any platform and with any specific hardware or software required. Guests receive a digital file of their portrait plus a magical time-lapse replay video.
