    You won't be disappointed!
    Wow! David exceeded my expectations. He created an RV theme (pre-printed) for our caricature drawings and he included pets by looking at a picture on a cell phone. Talk about multi-tasking - holding a cell phone in one hand, drawing with the other hand and having a great conversation with the subjects! EVERYONE was impressed and they loved their drawing! It was a great memento for our RV club members! David is very personable, punctual and you can't beat his price.

    I was able to finally meet Dave towards the end of the event. He is a great person to have at the event and definitely worth the cost. He took initiative to start drawing guests when we placed his station away from guests during cocktail hour. He is very responsive to emails. He is a quality person and great at what he does. I heard nothing but great things about him from guests. I wish I could have had him stay longer ! I highly recommend him and would use him in other events.

    Very Talented, Did Not Stay for Agreed Timing
    David was very helpful in getting two other artists to join him for our holiday party. Everyone that was able to get a caricature really loved it. However, my request was for 3 caricature artists to attend our party from 11:30 am to 1 pm. David and his team showed up very early around 10 am and left just after 12:30 pm, cutting off the tail end of the party. Granted, most of the party attendees had left at this point, but he still violated our agreed upon timing. I had several employees who left disappointed because they waited until the last 15 minutes to come down and get one.

    David was excellent addition to our son's 6th birthday party. He communicated throughout the process and listened to what we wanted for our event. He arrived, set up and fortunately stayed longer, because I had more people than expected, to insure everyone went home happy with a piece of creative artwork. It was so refreshing to have someone dedicated to their craft. Great value for the money spent. Would enjoy having him again in the future to capture special memories.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have attended the academy of pasadena to brush up on certain techniques.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
I charge one hourly rate
How did you get started doing this type of work?
Drawing fun cartoons has always been a part of me. Even doodling on the side of my papers in school it was many times instinctive to draw the person in front of me.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Fast paced drawings using markers.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Again that baby shower where i had 6 generations under one roof including the 104 year old great great grandmother.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Be mindful that the hardest part is capturing the likeness and spirit of the subject in just 5 minutes of posing and do that consistently for 20 or 30 guests. Not every artist is up for that type of challenge.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I wish they knew the range of portraits especially caricatures and how diverse a result could be.
