I am planning a Renaissance-themed wedding for Aug. 9 and looking for someone who can do caricatures. The artist we had is unable to come now. I know it is short notice, but if there is anyone who is able to do it we would greatly appreciate it. The reception is in Lake Nebagamon. We want to set up a “Ye Olde Photo” booth, where the guests can get a quick sketch done. If you can do quick sketches of people instead of caricatures, that is OK too.

This is a very exciting year for the Duluth Superior Film Festival, as it is our fifth anniversary. We have some excellent films lined up (as usual), and some exciting guests.
