Friendly and Personable!
We found Bill to be a joy to work with! He was friendly, personable, and open to suggestions, and he put people at ease. We often found people laughing and enjoying their experience, and he was willing to do families of approximately 4-5 people. We would definitely book him again.

I couldn't have been more pleased!
I had an event for my daughter on Saturday May 5. Bill Wylie was fantastic!! I couldn't have been more pleased. I had about 25 children at my daughter's Communion and every single one of them LOVED Bill. He worked from the minute he sat down until the party was over. I received many, many compliments on what a fabulous job Bill did. He is a TERRIFIC artist! I would definitely have him again. -Thank you so much for being a great adddition to my daughter's party.
He quietly crafted a large number of beautiful drawings!
We were very happy with our About Faces experience. Bill was our caricature artist and he was excellent. He contacted me just prior to the event which allayed my concerns regarding the use of an internet entertainment company. He arrived on time, followed our instructions perfectly, and handled a large group of teenagers professionally. He quietly crafted a large number of beautiful drawings, and came prepared with plastic sleeves to protect each finished artwork. We would not hesitate to do this again!
