“I’m renowned for my friendly banter, but it’s always respectful. It’s always best if a caricaturist gets involved with the people at a party or wedding. I can get to know little details that often end up in the cartoon!”
Hi Peter,T. Chidiac
Sooo funny…..JUST talking about how wonderful it was having you there at the wedding, compared to having some bloody nuisance singer/entertainer.
So many people were so grateful for your time and efforts …. especially Lin and I….
Still getting great comments……………and complaints from those who didn’t act quick enough after they saw how BRILLIANT you were….
You honestly have no idea of the impact you had –
Great memory’s for all of us.
You were fantastic. Absolutely fantastic.A. Larriera
