"There have been very few times in my professional life when I have been so pleased with a project that I have been compelled to write and express my appreciation -- this is one of those rare moments. The caricatures you have drawn at Bone's are exceptional. Your artistic ability is applauded by our customers and by all of us here at the restaurant. And, your dependability and cooperation in the scheduling of the caricatures is very appreciated. Thank you for helping to make things run so smoothly. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for your assistance with our varied projects -- from sugar packets to birthday cards. I look forward to the completion of our current Trotters project and to our continued association."

"Kourosh, as expected, you were the hit of the night! Everyone absolutely loved their portraits. Thanks again for making the party an event to remember."
"Kourosh was a delight to work with from start to finish. He is so kind, gentle, funny, and talented. He put everyone at ease and his artistry was the highlight of a party that had mostly adults but also children. Several people at the party are now going to book him for their company parties as well. I can't say enough good things about this very talented person."

"I had the good fortune to meet Kourosh Solaimani at an event in the North Georgia Mountains. I was so impressed by his artistic talents that I asked him to work on a surgical project with me. He came to the Operating Room at the Baldwin County Hospital in Milledgeville and was shown our gastric bypass operation for morbid obesity. A number of gastric bypass papers, booklets, and lectures were being prepared that needed illustrating. Mr. Solaimani, in a very ingenious manner, was able to take the flavor of what we were doing and translate it into very informative and provocative caricatures. Mr. Solaimani is an intelligent, honest, and extremely talented person. I recommend him without reservation."
William M. Headley, M.D.
"Our Association had the opportunity to employ Kourosh Solaimani as a character artist for our Christmas Party. It was the best decision we have made for entertainment in a long time. Mr. Solaimani was hired for two hours, however, everyone enjoyed his work so much, we kept him for five hours. His personality, skill and professionalism make him one of the best. I am sure we will be utilizing his work again in the near future."
Carolyn J. Coburn, Meeting Coordinator
"Your talents and time were very much appreciated by our residents here at Northside Convalescent Center. In only 4 minutes you created a caricature which the families and residents will cherish for many years to come. The way you combined physical features and hobbies of certain people here created more than just a photograph. We could have kept you here for hours and the people here would have enjoyed every minute. I hope that we will again be able to have you at Northside Convalescent Center. Thanks again!"
Diana Suthard, Northside Convalescent Center, Resident Concerns

Kelley Cole Graham, American Cancer Society
"Kourosh was phenomenal. He is an incredible artist and we had a wonderful time as did our guests. I may request a portrait of my parents from him in the near future. They were too shy to get it done at the party, but I think regreted it after seeing how incredible his portraits were. I think it would make a nice surprise for them. I'll be hanging mine in my office. I'm a pediatric cardiologist and he did a great job portraying that."

"Suretta loved the drawing. I gave it to her at her retirement party today. Everyone laughed and thought it was great. A few people came up to me afterwards and asked who drew it. Maybe you will get some more orders from this. Thanks again."
"After spending thousands of dollars on various ad campaigns to promote myself In Real Estate sales, I discovered Kourosh & his team of artists. Kourosh has transformed me from just another Realtor to a TRADEMARK! My caricature brings smile to the faces of prospective clients & actually opens conversation in a non threatening way. I use my caricature on all my advertisings now and will never return to the hit and miss ads. The largest corporations in the USA spend millions on logos & trademarks. Name recognition is priceless, the results I received from Kourosh was astonishing."
