Dan has turned a life-long love affair with cartoons into a successful career, delighting thousands with his work for over forty years.
Quick of wit and quicker of pen, he is recognized by his peers as one of the premier performers in the specialized field of quick-draw entertainment.
In the earlier years of his career, working in theme parks, speed and production (Once doing 311 sketches in an 8-hour shift) were the hallmark criteria. Currently Dan's philosophy is one of a more personalized interaction with the guest, focusing on a pleasant fun experience, resulting in a whimsical caricature to commemorate the occasion.
Dan observes that "... there are lots of artists who can draw, but only a precious few who can do what we do under the conditions we work."
And while most artists' works hang in prestigious museums, Dan's sketches are known to grace walls (both humble and grand) throughout the world. Your guests can add themselves to a celebrated list that includes (but not necessarily limited to) Markie Post, Halle Berry, Edie Falco, John Wayne, David Hyde Pierce, Jack Lemmon, Walter Matthau, Mick Fleetwood, David Ogden Stiers, Michelle Phillips, Dennis Franz, John Ritter, Kristen Johnston, Jamie Lee Curtis, Bruce Willis, Demi Moore, and Peter Uberroth to name a few.
On the corporate side, notable clients include the Los Angeles Dodgers, Angels, Clippers, Lakers, the (at the time) Los Angeles Rams, The Walt Disney Company, Universal Studios, E! entertainment, Lexus, and the John Wayne family.
