What to Expect
Clients, event planners and audiences can expect a professional quick-sketch artist that not only can create great likenesses but can engage, entertain and interact with his subjects. Darrell does his drawings in color as well as in black and white. He draws on a flat surface so his subjects can witness the drawing from "beginning to end" unlike easel drawings where the person has to wait nervously wondering what the drawing is going to look like. They are also free to look about and interact with others as Darrell sketches them "Swiftly"

Unlike most artists I work on a table rather than an easel so everyone that sits for a sketch may see it drawn from begining until it's finished. I require a 6 or 8 foot table with several chairs so couples or entire families or groups may be drawn togeth
