The party was a lively mix of people adults, children and teens. They really enjoyed each other's company and the cartoons being sketched at the bar mitzvah. To my surprise, I received this thank you note from one of the attendees.
Hi Ben, I just wanted to tell you again how happy we are with the sketch you did of us at the bar mitzvah.
What struck me, aside from the quality of your work, was how entertaining that activity was for everyone!
Not Only was it fun for the individual being sketched, but it was also entertaining for everyone who watched. It really ended up being a group activity. I realized that I spent more time in conversation around that activity than I did at any other time during the evening.
Thank you again! I'm looking forward to an opportunity to book you for one of my own events! And I'll suggest it to others I know as well.
