He did a great job with all the drawings and was very accommodating especially with so many children requesting drawings.

“Ruy was on time, set up fast, was very quick to complete each sketch! He was pleasant to work with and always had good communication with me during the initial months of the planning stages of our event. All my guests had a blast sitting and posing for their caricature with Ruy, some just enjoyed watching him as he worked! Even when the venue took away most of his lit up area, he used his artist's lamp to complete each and every job to the best of his ability! I highly recommend Ruy if you are looking for a special treat as a favor to guests at your party! Thanks Ruy you made our special occasion even more special!”

“Ruy was absolutely fantastic! He drew caricatures at our twins 2nd birthday party and the kids and adults alike were excited to be drawn and pleased with their pictures. Ruy showed up on time and was even nice enough to stay late to finish those standing in line. My guests were very pleased! I would absolutely recommend him for your event.”
