Posted 6 days ago

Once again, my Agent let me know that he received a Super Rave Review about my Caricatures. I had worked an event at Bright Horizons in Brooklyn ~ and my thrilled Client took it upon himself to send my Agent the following Review about my work.

Amazing and Hilarious!
Your artist was amazing and hilarious and so very talented. I look forward to using you all again in the future!!
Ean, Bright Horizons - Brooklyn, NY

Glitter Tattoo Client Review

Posted 23 days ago

Oh Happy Day ~
I just received the following Featured Review at one of my advertising sites:

VERIFIED REVIEW
By Stephanie M. on August 1, 2016
Hired As: Temporary Tattoo Artist
Client Stephanie M wrote on August 1, 2016: 5-STAR-REVIEW. (that's the Maximum number of Stars available at this site.) Client Stephanie M wrote: Popular entertainment at company outing. Alison did a great job of captivating our employees during a summer outing with her hand-drawn temporary tattoos. Most of our big group were excited to get their custom artwork. Was a fun and different way to entertain people during an outdoor summer employee day. Would recommend to work with. Very responsive and flexible.

Yes ~ It was an excellent event. The guests were comfortably talking with each other, drinks and appetizers in hand, with the added focus of getting their FREEHAND TATTOOS. This is an excellent Activity for a Corporate Event.

And here's an older Review that was also at this advertising site:

Fantastic
By Karen L. on September 14, 2015
Face Painting Express owner Alison arrived on time and was very professional, she was very warm and friendly towards the children and adults everyone took to her immediately. We had a pool party and Alison suggested that we do tattoos instead of face painting because the paint would come right off in the water. This was the best idea the tattoos were applied and the children jumped right back in the pool. The tattoos were fantastic I even got one myself as well as few other adults. I highly recommend her and will hire her agian. Keep up the great work Alison!!!!!

My FREEHAND TATTOOS are also excellent for a Pool Party

Technology Glitch

Egads ~ The 2nd time Party that my iphone just stopped taking pictures. Just like that. At least I photographed the first few Caricatures that I drew.

But they look like they were drawn on blue paper? What's going on with my phone? Or was it because of the afternoon lighting at the venue? Just before it rained?

I felt particularly frustrated because I had drawn some of my Best pictures ever at this event, but I wasn't able to photograph them. I sincerely hope the people (who got to keep them) will appreciate them for a long time. Lol ~ this is how Artists used to live ~ before we could photograph our Artwork.

And we all had a Great time at the Party anyway. This group really encouraged me to make wild exaggerations. They were having so much Fun!

Follow Up Later in the Week: LOL! Turns out that my phone was all clogged up with OVER 10,000 PHOTOS. Even though I deleted them each time that I transferred them to my Computer, the phone saved them as "Deleted Photos". Egads ~ I deleted them off my phone for a 2nd time. Phone works Fine now. It's a Caricature World.
