He was incredible!
He was incredible. The guests loved him. I wish I had contracted him longer. Not all the guests got to get their drawing done. It was a big hit! Thank you all for everything.

Absolutely love Rafael
We, meaning my homeowners absolutely loved Rafael, the caricature artist.. He was prompt, professional, timely in his work and very personable. We would love to have him back in the future for an event. In fact, I’ve already booked a face painter for our Easter event at the end of April. I will definitely be using your company to book specialized event artists.

Raphael was outstanding!
Raphael was outstanding. He made the day for the team and the parents. He was on time, worked non-stop and did outstanding caricatures of the players and the entire team. He was flexible and put everyone at their ease while he did the caricatures. The team caricature was superb, and above and beyond! We could not have been more pleased. We would recommend Raphael to anyone and everyone!
