I am a professional, talented and experienced caricature artist & DIGITAL CARICATURIST/CARTOONIST, based in the South West.
I have delivered top-quality art and entertainment to hundreds of clients in the UK and abroad. These included the Royal Military Academy, numerous casinos and many prestigious hotels. I specialize in a wide range of events - from friends-and-family events such as birthday parties and wedding receptions, to business events and music festivals. I can also offer LIVE DIGITAL CARICATURES.
Live DIGITAL caricature drawing is a new and unique idea for virtually any event; CHRISTMAS PARTIES, birthday parties, end-of-school parties, or big family events (weddings, gatherings, anniversaries), CONFERENCES ..... It requires minimal equipment, and so it can be set up speedily anywhere and at any time, whilst not taking up a lot of space. An iPad or a Wacom Cintig 22HD/Wacom Cintiq Companion 2 tablet would be connected to a TV screen via USB, so people could observe the caricature-drawing process. They could participate in the creation of black-and-white as well as colour drawings, give the artist (myself) ideas for caricature drawings of their friends, and in the end, receive an instant print-out of the final creation from a portable Wifi printer.
The live DIGITAL caricatures act would be very affordable, and would not differ in price from other forms of entertainment of a similar kind.
I have all the necessary equipment, so as mentioned earlier the requirements would be absolutely minimal! With my experience and background in corporate entertainment, I am certain that the act would prove extremely popular, and remain successful and enjoyable for the years to come.
Be assured, that my competitive prices always go right along with high-quality, professional standard of work.
I am flexible, punctual, and able to adapt to the unique character of any party or event!

Chris was an excellent addition to our wedding. The guests found it absolutely hilarious and it was such fun to be able to send our guests home with their pictures which have been circulating in a ‘guess who’ style around our friends and family WhatsApp groups ever since!
Thank you Chris, you were efficient, on time and set your kit up discreetly and made sure to capture everyone.
I would absolutely recommend Chris to anyone considering a caricaturist- you won’t be disappointed!

Chris attended my sons engagement party and was a massive hit with all of the guests. He worked non stop for the whole time we had booked him and produced fantastic accurate caricatures. He was happy to draw individuals or groups. I would definitely recommend Chris without hesitation, it was a brilliant addition to the party and everyone loved their pictures.

Chris's service was great. On the night he was timely and the ease of his set up was smooth and efficient. Our party goers loved his drawings which added a huge amount of laughs, attention and entertainment to the evening. We would highly recommend Chris for any occasions and using a Caricaturist is a great alternative to a photo booth if you have had them before and are looking for something a little special.

We hired Chris for our company summer party last week and he was amazing! All of our staff loved it and had a good chuckle over the pictures he produced for us all. He went down really well and was lovely to work with. We will definitely be using Chris's skills again in the future. Thank you Chris!

- Each guest at the party or event receives a high-quality traditional caricature drawing, in a protective clear foil sleeve to prevent damage. If I run out of time, I will often stay on to finish my work with no extra cost, so that nobody gets left out!
- A choice of the popular cartoon-style drawings, or the more original and unique drawings for which I use a special coal and pastel technique.
- Truly individual and personal caricature drawings; I am known for my ability to capture likeness, whilst adding a bit of fun and silliness to the final product. This results in all kinds of laughter - from giggles to hysterics - and there are always unexpected surprises!
- A5 format printed DIGITAL caricatures that could be made into ‘avatar necklaces’ or badges, for each person to wear for the duration of the party, conference or any corporate event.
Sounds like something you're after? I can guarantee the lowest price on the market - so there is no point in shopping around!
