Lovely man, very patient with my guests ( a few had additional needs) I do think he stayed longer as he was very busy.
Thank you for coming to my husband’s 60th party

Dave was a very calm and pleasant man that turned up on time and got straight to work! He was efficient with his drawings and got through many with happy customers. His drawings were not too offensive but could have been with more likeness to the person as everyone's drawings started to look quite similar. Prior to the event, he took a while to reply at times but was a good communicator when in contact and was flexible with the time change that occurred. All in all it was what was written on the tin. Thanks Dave everyone enjoyed your presence.x

Dave was friendly and professional for my mother's private party. All the guests loved their caricature portraits and he even gave me some complimentary Christmas cards which were a lovely touch. Thank you Dave!
