We hired Roger to give our National Restaurant Association booth a little extra pizzazz, and he definitely stole the show! People were stopping by and asking for caricatures, making our booth look full. He drove in a lot of extra traffic. All in all, Roger was incredibly professional and just fun to hang out with during the slow hours. He laughed at all of our terrible jokes and drew all of us twice. I would recommend him to anyone!

Roger was very professional and accomodating in every respect. He showed up on time, set up immediately and worked without a break for the contracted time. Roger was very friendly and able to work with both the adult and children guests. He is a very talented artist and produced very intersting caracatures. Everyone seemed to appreciate his work. I highly recommend Roger. Michael F.

Roger was wonderful. He kept my guests laughing all night as he drew piece after piece. He was such a hit, at my husbands 40th birthday party, we had to ask if he was willing to stay for an extra hour (and of course he was.) He was entertaining to everyone at the party, the old the young and everyone in between. I have nothing but good things to say about Roger and his work.
