Dean was absolutely great, he dealt with everybody as individuals, the young ones followed him round asking questions and he was only too pleased to answer them. The drawings were excellent and raised some very interesting conversations.

I came across Dean on here and I can say that everything from the start went smoothly. Marilia was lovely and very informative throughout the booking process. I received confirmation of my booking and was advised of the next best steps. I received a friendly call from Dean 2 weeks before my event as promised and he was very warm on the call and made me feel comfortable knowing I booked someone who will get on with my guests. At the venue, I barely got to see Dean as everyone was queueing up for him. Everyone absolutely loved having their caricature done and Dean even stopped midway to do mine and my husbands. I think not only did we enjoy having Dean there, Dean enjoyed being there also. My event was nearly 2 months ago yet people are still talking about 'that guy that drew a cartoon of me'... I would highly recommend Dean- He really is the best!

My guests are still talking about him. Can't recommend him enough. Thank you so much.

Our guests all raved about Dean. He was friendly and approachable and worked very hard to make sure that all our guests had an opportunity to get a caricature done. Everyone loved his art and they were very impressed by his clear talents. He even tutored one of our youngest guests - 8 year old Ruby who showed an interest (and early talent!) in the craft. She's now caricaturing her parents and relatives incessantly! Thanks.

Nothing but praise for Dean. Dean was on time, personable and ready to go from minute 1. He had plenty of extra paper as we had lots of people wanting his services but unfortunately we only booked him for 4 hours. We really should have booked for 7 hours so he could see all those who wanted it. Would definitely recommend and we will use again at further events.

Dean was calm, friendly and really made the most of his time at our wedding. He never stopped drawing and produced great pictures at speed. Everyone was walking around comparing pictures - even people who didn't know each other - and it was a great icebreaker. Today I have seen multitudes of Dean's drawings being used for Facebook profile pictures. We were complimented so many times on a great idea and Dean really did help make our special day totally amazing. Thank you Dean :)

Dean was a joy! All our party guests were delighted with their caricatures and thought it a very novel idea. Dean is professional, very versatile, obliging and blended himself in discreetly at the party, putting people immediately at ease. They were queuing up to be sketched! I wouldn't hesitate to ask Dean to be at another of our parties.

Dean is a really nice guy, polite, personable and a pleasure to deal with. He arrived promptly and checked on what we wanted and then never stopped all night, every time I looked at him he was drawing a different person. The guests were all delighted with their caricatures and I have had nothing but good feedback from them. Dean let me know when he was leaving and made sure I was happy with everything. The whole process, from the initial enquiry on the Warble website, the confirmation and contract, and the event itself, was completely trouble free and I will recommend both Dean and Warble to my friends and family for future use. Many thanks.

I having nothing to fault with Dean, he arrived on time was no hassle just got straight to work which was brilliant. He was polite, accommodating and everybody loved him. He made his way around my 125 day guests and I think managed to draw the majority of them, mostly drawing couples in the 3 hour slot. Well worth the money, which if you work it out per hour per picture counting in traveling etc, isn't a lot of money!! Thought it was a brilliant idea! Would use Warble Entertainment again also - easy to use and take the hassle away. Much appreciate your service. The new Mrs Swale

I was running a family fun day for the local families of the community and booked Dean for 4 hours to come along to provide people with his caricature drawings. Dean had quite a distance to travel but arrived in plenty of time and he worked non stop from beginning to end!! He was pleasant, hard working and my guests loved their sketches!! He is extremely talented and I would not hesitate in recommending him to anyone. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Dean for a great service and a fabulous day.

Dean arrived promptly and was very pleasant, he chatted for a few minutes to get a feel for the event and what I would like from him.

Absolutely fantastic! Dean was booked as a 50th birthday present for my boyfriend's party and he did not disappoint in any way. He arrived on time and hit the floor running. Polite, unobtrusive but at the same time connecting and talking to the guests. There was a Ceilidh band and dancing going on at the same time and the combination worked with no problem at all. Our pictures were brilliant and everyone else at the party thought their's were brilliant too. Lots of laughter, everyone planning to go out and buy frames for their pictures and one guest had even worked out where on the wall of their living room she was going to hang theirs! Can't thank Dean enough, I am so pleased I booked him and would certainly do so again if planning a major party like this one. Thoroughly recommend him, he helped make our party a great success. Thanks again, Dean.
