"Duane does a brilliant
job of engaging the children with his drawing, wit, and dynamic presence. His ZED comic strip collections are thoughtful and
entertaining for children and adults. His presentation to our children was well received. They were excited to listen to his
words of encouragement and his message of following their dreams. Mr. Abel also entertained the adults at our evening event
as he discussed his experiences and development into the person he is today. He bestowed valuable advice on parenting and
child development as it pertains to child creativity and encouragement, all along keeping the audience thoroughly engrossed
in his artistry and imagination. I highly recommend this outstanding artist and skilled presenter for student assemblies,
parent programs, conferences, and workshops. You will not be disappointed but totally impressed with his skills and abilities."
