Francesco gets a solid 5 out of 5 from us; he entertained our guests in a very friendly and professional manner and his drawings were excellent. We got lots of great comments back from our guests and we would definitely book him again.

Do you need specific materials or conditions to offer your service?
What do you need? I bring all the equipment for drawing, including a portable chair and an easel. However I need your help in finding a corner with a good light on the venue, possibly not too close to the source of music of the party (either live or stereo). What else? I do need 3 chairs and possibly a little table, a glass of water. I do also need a break of 10-15 minutes every two hours. Can I have you moving around rather than standing at the easel? Of course! If you prefer, I can go “walkabout”, which means I will instead go around the tables, mingling with your guests always in a polite and never intrusive way. Drawing at the easel and "walkabout" can also be done in response as alternated moment of your event. Let's make an example: between 6 - 8 pm your guests will be sitting, so I can walk around the tables. But between 8 - 10 pm your guests will be drinking or even dancing, so I will be setting up my easel and they will come to my spot for a spot on caricature! Please discuss in advance with Francesco the time schedule of the event. What is the best moment to have caricatures at my event? The best time for caricature is... When your guests are in condition to smile!This means almost all the times, except when they are literally chewing. For this reason, I prefer to avoid drawing when food is served, but I am happy to draw between different servings, or who has already finished eating a dish. Can I trust you?
