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 PAVLICK - THE CARICATURIST -

WHAT YOU GET:

- 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!

"We booked Chris for our works Christmas party. We discussed that we would prefer the guests to be drawn whilst sitting there We all loved our drawings. They made our party!!! Thank you Chris! I would definitely recommend you for other Christmas Parties. Thank you also for staying a bit longer than agreed to complete the last of those waiting!! You did a fab job!"

"Thank you so much Chris! I surprised my son with a 21st birthday party on 10th Feb 2017 and wanted some entertainment that offered something a bit different. I spent a while shopping around for a caricaturist, some were charging in excess of £400 for a couple of hours!! I finally came across Chris who was less than half the price! I was a bit sceptical at first due to the price being so reasonable but I needn't have worried at all, he was FANTASTIC! He managed I don't know how many drawings in such a short space of time and the likeness he managed to capture was uncanny, you know exactly who they are by his drawings. I loved that people got to take away a keepsake of my sons 21st, I would definitely use Chris again and would highly recommend to my friends too. He was also very helpful from beginning to end and happily answered all questions that I had. Thanks Chris for making my sons 21st one to remember! :) Toni x"

"Chris was fantastic - I would recommend. He worked very hard for 3 hours solid, drawing lots of pictures and was the centre of attention just outside my main party hall. I kept lots of people flowing to him, and Chris (excellently supported by his wife) just kept on drawing. Mixture of kids & adults - lots of people left with sketches of themselves to remember my 40th birthday. Thanks for helping make my day so speacial Chris :)"

" ’Hi Chris I would like to thank you for coming to my brother's wedding, and drawing all of the guests. Everyone who received a caricature was impressed by your expertise, interpretation and speed, and most said that they will pleased to show their family and friends!! You were unobtrusive and did not impact on the formalities of the day, whilst managing to interact with everyone and capture them all on paper. I would readily recommend your services, and am happy for you to use this feedback in your advertising. Best wishes Kind regards David Hunt’’ "

",,I wanted to email to say what a great caricaturist Chris was at our wedding on 02/05/15. Chris arrived promptly and was very friendly and approachable and adapted to the restrictions of our venue- the space was a bit tight, but Chris took it all in his stride and was happy to circulate around the guests and created some wonderful caricatures which I know all of the guests loved! My wife and I would definitely recommend Chris to other people, so thank you for putting us in touch with him, Chris helped add a real buzz to our evening party! Kind regards Matt Sutton’’ "

",,Everything was fantastic. I’d like to take the time out to let you know Chris did a marvellous job, from start to finish. He arrived perfectly before time, was dressed really smartly, and was professional. He did a fantastic job, and I know he created many, many caricatures. As the event organiser, I had many people ask me his name, and his contact details, so they could recommend/book him for future events – I will therefore do as Chris suggested, and pass around the contact details for Scarlett Entertainment. Many thanks once again, you, and of course Chris '' Marc "

"Chris was great. For any of the pictures he wasn't able to draw due to time, he did at home and sent them to us. The pictures were very funny and came in their own protective sleeve. Thanks Chris!"

"Hi Chris, I just wanted to say a massive thank you for your work at the bioscience ball on 30/4/13. I have written a bit of feedback for you: Chris is a fantastic artist, and was able to portray real expression through his work. He made each experience memorable and was very efficient in his work. He was extremely popular at the ball, with a constant queue of eager guests waiting to be drawn. He has a unique talent which goes into much more detail than a normal caricature artist would do. We would most certainly recommend him to others and use him again if we had a similar event. Thank you again and we will be in contact if we host another event again Best wishes Sarah Joscelyne Bioscience Society, Cardiff University’’ "

"’Hello There. Just to let you know that Chris arrived on time for the evening wedding reception at the Bedford Hotel Tavistock, Devon on Saturday 21st July and proved an instant hit. He never stopped drawing the whole time he was there. Everyone was really pleased and said how good he was. He made a real impression and I would definitely recommend him as a brilliant entertainer at any function. We did express our appreciation to him but would ask you to pass on our thanks as he made a real contribution to making our daughter’s wedding a great success. Many thanks’’ Christine Cunningham "

"Just a note to thank you very much for arranging for Chris to be at the conference with us. His work is amazing and proved to be a major attraction to our customer base- it was rare that he didn't have a queue! Chris worked incredibly hard and really was a star performer, I would happily recommend his work going forward. Kind Regards Graham Graham Thornton M.I.H. Commercial Director Anglia Crown Ltd "

"We were lucky enough to find Chris online after our original caricaturist cancelled. He was local so could do the time we wanted 7:30-10pm. Literally everyone at our small wedding got a picture done and all were very happy with the results. He was friendly and worked quickly to get all my guests done. I would have no hesitation in recommending him. Chris, thankyou!"

"We hired Chris for our Christmas party, he worked tirelessly for the full 3 hours providing great characatures and much hilarity. Working from photos worked really well meaning he could drawer whilst we were eating and partying but still have the pleasure of watching the progress of his amazing pictures. Not sure quite how many pictures he managed but they were all presented in a plastic wallet to protect them and I'm looking forward to receiving his excellent photographs too. Would thoroughly recommend. Thank you very much"

"Chris arrived with plenty of time to spare and we discussed how I'd prefer him to undertake his drawings. I had thought that guests would prefer to sit for the drawings but it worked well that Chris was able to photograph guests so they could continue to enjoy the party whilst Chris did their drawing. Chris uses charcoal so the drawings are much more detailed than those done in pen. The end products were of great detail and quality and overall guests were happy with the likeness...they really were fantastic. Chris' verbal interaction with guests was limited but the drawings spoke for themselves."

"We had very mixed views from our guests who had their pictures drawn by Chris - some very happy and some quite disappointed. Most of the women drawn looked angry in their pictures! Chris arrived on time and was very polite to guests."

To secure your date, all you need to do is pay a deposit of £50. The bank details will be sent to you together with the booking form once all the details of the event have been agreed upon. The remaining balance can be paid in cash on the day/night of the event. For traditional drawings at events, all I need is two chairs, a small table, a good central spot and… that’s it! I will provide everything else, from drawing materials to the necessary equipment. Tip: it can be helpful to let the guests know about the act in advance, so they can get excited about taking part. For digital caricatures, I usually ask for a flat screen tv so the guests can watch the caricature-drawing live – but although this is a big part of the entertainment aspect, it isn’t essential!

You can customise your paper however you like, with the name of the venue, you company logo, the names or a small caricature of the bride and groom, or the date of the event printed on the top or bottom of the page. If the caricatures are in high demand at the party (which happens very often), I always ensure that everyone queuing for a drawing receives one, even if I have to stay on for longer than planned. This means that you get your money’s worth, and nobody gets left out.
What is included in the wedding package?
The act usually lasts around 2-3 hours, depending on the number of guests. I can advise on the appropriate time slot at the time of booking, once I know more about your event and the number of people attending. With each caricature taking just 5-10 minutes to draw, I can produce up to 12 drawings in an hour.

CAN YOU DRAW FROM PHOTOS?
Yes. During events like dinner parties or wedding receptions where the guests are likely to be busy eating or socialising, drawing from photographs is often a good idea. With their permission, I take a photo of the guests with an iPad Pro, and draw remotely from photographs.

The guests don’t have to pay for the drawings. Each caricature I draw at the event is included in the original booking fee, so people can enjoy the act and receive a caricature as a keepsake at the end!
