Dan was fantastic, as always! He was surrounded by middle school students ALL NIGHT and handled it like a champ. We'll definitely have him back again.

Kind, professional, and talented!
I just wanted to tell you how much we loved having Dan at our dinner party last night. His drawings were amazing, and everyone was so surprised and excited to have him there. He was very kind, professional and talented, and we would love to have him back to another party in the future.
Personalized and Fantastic!
Everyone loved Dan's work! He was able to get to a lot of folks in a relatively short amount of time, and every caricature was personalized and fantastic.

Parents and children loved him!
The entertainment was fantastic! Dan Smith did a great job and the parents and children loved him. Many families waited in long line (a hard thing to do with young children!) but no one was budging and everyone wanted a picture by Dan. We would definitely want to use him again!
