Great Feedback for About Faces Entertainers
"Dave Boatman [caricature artist] arrived early and stayed a few minutes late. He was so great... It was the perfect addition to my son's surprise party.  I would for sure hire him again if and when we have another party!

Thank you to everyone at About Faces entertainment for your help.  It was great!" -Amy, CA

"Rafael Diez [caricature artist] was outstanding. He made the day for the team and the parents. He ... did outstanding caricatures of the players and the entire team. He was flexible and put everyone at their ease while he did the caricatures. The team caricature was superb, and above and beyond.

We could not have been more pleased. We would recommend Rafael to anyone and everyone!"  - Jeff, FL

"Katie G. [caricature artist] was great!  She was on time, personable and very professional.  I would definitely hire her for future events." L'Toya, CA

"I wanted to let you know what a great job Nick Nix [caricature artist] did today at our Back from Break Bash!  He did a fantastic job and the students (and I) loved his work!!  He was very kind, worked continuously and the quality of his work was consistently excellent!  He is my favorite type of artist to work with- easy and good!!

I will be sure to use About Faces Entertainers and Nick again in the future!" - Nina, IN

"We were EXTREMELY satisfied with the entertainment for our party this past weekend.  Sam [caricature artist] arrived with plenty of time to be ready for the party start time.  He was professional, friendly and his talent is AMAZING.  The parents of each of the party guests were so thrilled to have the caricature sketches, and I know we'll frame ours to remember this fun day.  Thank you for "doing what you said you would do" - excellent customer service and delivery.  I would definitely recommend About Faces to others!" - Denise, PA

Easter Celebrations!
April 4, 2010

It's almost Easter... do you have enough entertainment to satisfy the hoards of kids coming to your house? Do you even have an Easter bunny yet? Don't worry, we have you covered! Give us a call as soon as possible!

In the meantime, here are some interesting Easter facts. Feel free to use them to wow the kids on Easter!


1. Kids prefer red jelly beans and 75% are willing to do extra chores for more Easter candy.
2. The exchange of eggs for Easter dates back to a springtime custom older than Easter itself in which eggs were given as a symbol of rebirth in many cultures.
3. 86% would prefer having chocolate bunnies instead of a live rabbit.
4. 57% of kids get up super early on Easter to see what the Easter bunny has brought them.

The Kentucky Derby is May 1st. Are you having a Derby party? If so, you're going to need entertainment, especially for the kids. A balloon sculptor could come and make horse shaped balloons or a face painter could paint the kid's favorite horses on their cheeks!

How about a caricature artist to draw you and your guests in your Derby best with mint julips in hand?


Give us a call at 1-800-923-8669 to book someone for your Derby party!
