Although Dave had to travel some distance he arrived on time. He was very polite, friendly and professional. He made our micro wedding reception complete. Everyone was very happy with his caricature drawings which created a lot of friendly laughs and chatter. Thank you Dave you're highly recommended by us.

Highly recommend. Dave’s pictures were fabulous and he proved a really big hit at our son’s 12th birthday party. Thank you.

Dave is a fantastic caricaturist! He was extremely flexible to work around our wedding timings, easily contactable, guests had a fun time getting their portraits done (there were even queues). Unfortunately we were unable to get our portrait done on the day, so we requested Dave to do a drawing from photographs, which he did and sent to our home - we love it! Would 100% recommend, well worth it!



  • How long is the act?

    I am flexible. Normal sessions are between 2 and 4 hours.

  • What is included in the wedding package?

    An option for logo/header pre-printed paper or pre-drawn bodies with a theme.

  • Do you need specific materials or conditions to offer your service?

    Just adequate lighting and access to chairs to sit and draw guests.

  • How much time do you need to prepare for an act?


  • Do you make subjects look grotesque?

    No. The best caricatures capture the likeness of a person at their most vivacious, sexy and charismatic!
