Ron was truly amazing and was "the best part of the event". Seeing the kids smile add he revealed their drawing really made it worth it, and his help with our proposal was incredible. I would highly recommended Ron to anyone. Thanks again Ron!
Tons of crazy kids all ages going nuts with high traffic and this guy held it together and did a spectacular job. He wasn't nearly the cheapest offer, but I am glad I went with him as he was surely the best. Worth the money to get it done right.
Response from Mugshotz Caricatures and Art Studio:
Thanks, Justin! It was a fun job, and a lot of fun to draw at Superhero party. All the best!
Ron came out for our trade show a few months ago, and dazzled our potential clients with his artwork. People were lining up to get drawn! This gave me and my staff a great opportunity to talk about our services to them and a few more minutes too while they got drawn. He's second on our list for the next trade show, after booking the booth!
We loved him so much we hired him for our company picnic this past month and was a huge hit with staff and their family. My only complaint was we should have hired him longer. That was my fault, not his! I'd recommend him to anyone! And he's a funny guy on top of being super talented!
His price is a little low in my opinion.

What to Expect
Although we generally draw just a few people at a time, we do create a nice crowd and entertain alot of people at once.

Influences & Inspiration
We have worked with the best of the business, and although we maintain a high level of skill and quality, each artist has their own personality, and skillset they bring to each drawing.
I will need three chairs and prefer an electrical outlet within ten feet.
