A lot of fun !

Attended a party that Don did caricatures. He made everyone feel relaxed, laugh and we came home with a picture nice enough for framing. He is very personable and fun.

Made the night a magical memory!!!

We hired Don in for our carousel themed wedding reception and he both outshown and out performed all othe entertainers we brought in. Don was pleasant, professional, and just all around spectacular. he offered us a range of prices and customizable options that put our wedding favors over the top! Although I feel bad he never got to experience our yummy food, the fact that he had a line all night says enough about his talents!!! Wish I could bring him to every event I hold! Thank you!

Review by Lucia B.

I was exceptionally pleased with the artistic caricature ability that Don presented at my daughter's sweet 16 party. Don was not only kind, his professional manner showed how true he was to his work. Don worked quickly while still producing quality work. He made everyone happy about the funny faces he created of them. Both, the young and the bitterly old guests enjoyed his work. The rate was reasonable and I would definitely consider having Don draw caricatures at my next function.

Overview

I set up my easel so the kids can gather and watch as the caricatures are drawn. Watching the creative process adds a fun level of entertainment as everyone jokes, laughs and comments.
I can draw 15 to 18 B&W single heads and bodies and 10-14 color single heads and bodies per hour. Younger children age 5 and under can reduce the number of caricatures per hour. I draw on 11" x 14" card stock and offer plastic sleeves to protect the finished caricature.
It's best have me come after the start of the party. I set up in a central location with access to a plug for my lights if its dark and I require two to three chairs.
I gather all the kids, introduce myself and tell them my two rules, then start drawing. I encourage them to watch and usually let the person being drawn choose the next 'victim.' As long as there's someone to replace the next kid in the chair it moves along quickly and I can draw the higher number per hour.
I usually begin with a joke drawing to get the kids laughing and interacting. I sometimes I intersperse some other joke drawings depending on the conversations and banter of the kids.
All parties are different, but the kids especially the girls love it. There's usually some budding artists who will stand next to me the whole time enthralled with the process.

I've been entertaining guests at parties from my Worcester area base since 1998, and travel in a radius that covers Massachusetts (including Boston, Framingham, and Springfield) to New Hampshire to Rhode Island and Connecticut.

When I'm not sketching at parties, I also draw award-winning cartoons for "TelegramTowns", a seven-edition weekly newspaper that covers 28 central Massachusetts towns. I have also won over 50 awards from various news organization for my current work for the "Worcester Telegram & Gazette" and my past work for "The [Holden] Landmark".
