Hi. I have always had a passion for writing. I find that writing is the best way to express my emotions and opinions. I recently had a cousin pass away and I wrote a tribute to him on facebook. I received positive feedback from so many people and that is when I decided to possibly make it into a career. I have a bachelors degree in Psychology and am currently working as a substitute teacher. I also coach volleyball and love basketball, softball, and football as well. I love a challenge and am highly competitive . I am looking to make a little extra money for vacation this summer. So If you hire me to write for you, I promise I won't let you down.

Spider-Man artist: Neil Galloway creates caricatures that amuse and amaze clients as well as observers. Neil believes a well drawn caricature will bring out the best in everyone and create a better likeness than the average photograph! Spontaneous applause is frequently heard from the crowd looking on as he completes another caricature whether at a Fair, Festival,wedding or Corporate event or private parties. Everyone delights to see the entertaining magic unveil in about three minuets! Caricaturing is a Performance Art and Neil loves performing every chance he gets. Particularly exciting and popular are themed events like; James Bond Party where everyone is drawn in their favorite 007 movie. Another sought after theme is a favorite Super hero. Regardless of the “Theme” Neil guarantees complete satisfaction. Neil's natural aptitude for cartoon drawing lead him to work in the animation industry for several years. Working under contract with Marvel Neil drew “Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends, and “The Incredible Hulk” for Saturday Morning Cartoons. Other animation credits include: “Dungeons and Dragons,” Thundarr the Barbarian,” “She-Ra Princess of Power,” “Jem” and “Yogi Bear.” Neil also worked on the first full length 3D animated feature fillm: “Starchaser The Legend of Orin.” Also served as Art Director for the highly acclaimed software company Access Software creating characters and environments for computer games. Celebrities drawn in person: James Caan, Barry Corbin, Tanya Roberts, Margo Kidder, Brian Keith, Governor of Colorado, and most of the Osmonds. All through his versatile career Neil has drawn caricatures. He even offers versatility with caricatures. People can be drawn “portrait like” to very “funny exaggeration” (not gross distortion) When someone sets to be drawn the first question Neil asks is: “do you want to be drawn more cartoon y or more natural?” Either one will bring out the best in you. This is not an option with the average caricature artist who generally draw their one style. Neil is competent with either “mild or wild.” Contact Neil if you want to see what you really look like or you want an entertaining and fun artist at your next event, who can draw 22 people per hour in black and white, or 8 people per hour in full deluxe color. Note: Unique themes/logos can be pre-printed to yield a higher number of drawings per hour. Client Testimonials: “Thank you so much for all the extra effort you put into our event you made it a great success, and everyone loved their drawings. They had so much fun looking at their drawings on display.” Veda Barrie _ Cottonwood Country Club. “You are a great man for following up in this way – thank you. I hope we can use your services in the future. I heard wonderful reviews.” Quinn Duetien of the Hale Center Theater.
