Wedding guest caricature

 

I have been providing entertainment as an on-the-spot caricaturist for over 20 years. I regularly attend weddings, private parties, proms, balls, corporate events, trade shows, office parties… the list goes on; you name it – I’ve probably done it! I love drawing people at live at events, I love the attention, mixing and mingling with the guests, the funny banter and of course the hoots of laughter when the artwork is revealed!

I am very flexible about how I work. Sometimes it is best to set up with an easel and a couple of chairs – for children’s parties this makes sense as it brings me level with the kids’ faces so I can see them better. Then again, at large outdoor events or trade fairs, setting up with a prominent display is essential but I am not one to sit quietly all evening in a corner waiting for volunteers to come over.. 9 times out of 10 I think walkabout works best for client, guests and caricaturist if he/she can do it well!

Being able to produce fast, consistently high quality likenesses as a walk-about cartoonist, I can fit seamlessly into all sorts of events. Mixing and mingling provides a brilliant ice breaker for your pre-dinner drinks, at a wedding reception before the wedding breakfast or at your company networking event. Having struck up a rapport with the guests, this often continues with table-hopping as everybody sits down to eat. Then again, after any speeches or award ceremonies are done and people begin to leave the tables, I often carry on into the evening. Hanging out in the bar or hovering by the dance floor, I will attract a constant queue whilst drawing to the rhythms to capture as many characters as I can. Surprisingly, I often find poor lighting, loud music and jostling bodies rather conducive!

 

Couple caricature

 

One of the first questions  lot of people ask me is how many caricatures I can draw in an hour. This varies; it depends a lot on what else is going on and how I am feeling on the day but  12 per hour is the minimum you should expect. With a well behaved audience and few distractions I have drawn as many as 20 in that time (one caricature  every 3 minutes or so!). But choosing a caricaturist to hire for your party is not just about numbers; it is just as much about quality and entertainment value.

Peiople love to watch me work!

 

People enjoy watching me work just as much as I like to be watched! I have a clean confident drawing style and am a naturally outgoing kind of guy. There is a certain amount of psychology involved in successful live caricaturing – good drawing goes hand in hand with a bit of funny chit chat!

If you have been doing a bit of searching for caricaturists, (or characterturists or ,characterchoorists!!)  you will know there are lots out there; Book me for your event and rest assured you will enlist an enthusiastic, experienced, professional and very able exponent of the art (or is it a sport?) of live caricature – But don’t just take my word for it; – you can check out dozens of online  reviews from my previous customers.
