Dave was not only professional and talented, he also interacted extremely well with our group- which is what we were hoping for! Hiring him is the best entertainment value we have ever chosen. We easily recognized our guests from their caricatures! Dave handled all the guests around him watching and asking questions in a humorous manner, while still drawing! We did have a special request about our portrait, which looks awesome and is already framed. He got our guests to mingle, and provided some preprinted paper we had discussed in advance that gave his work an "extra added" touch. I highly recommend Dave for anyone considering a crowning highlight for their event!!!
