About Vendor 

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Why Dan [al-mahr-yay]? He's [pruh-fesh-uh-nl] 22+ years of Caricature, Illustration and Sculpture. A few additional years of silliness. He'll get the job done and make you laugh. He's [ek-uh-nom-i-kuhl] Within minutes, he can produce a high-quality, shaded caricature. Not just a sketch, but a portrait-quality original. That means you get more for your money. You do the math. He's [tal-uhn-tid] His award-winning black and white shaded technique* will amaze you. It's not just a cartoon, it's a piece of art. He's good with [feys-ez]. If you got one, he can draw it. The likeness is undeniable. Just ask the ISCA**. Or his mother. He's [in-ter-nash-uh-nlee] recognized. He spent his last 20 years in Europe where he was invited to over 20 international festivals, he's been published in 5 countries and won a bunch of awards in Italy, France, Ireland, Spain and Romania. He also won a few awards in Las Vegas, Nevada, but you know, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas***. And some others in St.Pete, Florida. (And we are talking only about the last few years, since he moved in USA). You'll love him! [seer-ee-uh s-lee]. [rek-uh g-nish-uh n] * First place Outstanding Black and White technique - ISCA 2010.

Cocktail PartyReviewed on March 22, 2013From New York City, NY

FANTASTIC! We could not have asked for a better caricaturist. Dan is absolutely fabulous! He had our entire party captivated and laughing at how fun yet realistic the caricatures were! The party went two hours overtime and Dan so graciously--and happily--stayed until each person who wanted one had their caricature. (We of course will compensate him for his additional time.) Dan was wonderful. He is so professional, trustworthy, kind, and so talented. We look forward to booking him again. You really couldn't ask for a better caricaturist. He is an artist!

WeddingReviewed on August 13, 2012From New York City, NY

We booked Dan for a wedding, and OMG, amazing!!! I had friends and family come up to me raving about how awesome it was to have their pictures drawn. His work was artistic and captured everyone's features. Dan also prepared a custom work of art of us (the Bride and Groom) and brought it to the wedding to display, and I couldn't believe how much it looked like us. We only gave him photos to work with since the wedding day was the FIRST day we met Dan! We were in awe. I would definitely recommend Dan to anyone and for any event. You won't regret it. Thanks Dan, for everything!!!! Jenny & Ken

Sweet 16 PartyReviewed on January 22, 2013From Baldwin, NY

Dan, well he is just simply amazing!! On January 12, 2013, we had a Sweet 16 party at the Coral House. Dan arrived promptly at our party, and set up a very small table in the room provided by the caterer and the party began. When he finished his first drawing, I knew I hired the right person. His talent is extraordinary. Everyone in the room asked me where I found him because they never seen drawings as wonderful as his. My guests truly loved him. To describe Dan he is very witty, funny, charming and professional all rolled into one package oh and did I mention talented!! The very best at that! Loved this guy, and highly recommend him!
