Dave was very good. He was prompt, quick and had a queue waiting to have their pictures created. We have them all displayed in the office.

Dave was absolutely brilliant at our wedding in June, we are so pleased we used Drop Dead Caracatures. We wanted something different and which was fun and our guests had something to take home. Dave was busy for the whole 3 hours he was there and I think he was there actually longer than the 3 hours. He is a superb artist, we can't believe the likeness! We highly recommend if you want something different and fun Dave is worth every penny, and he is very reasonable compared to others that we looked at. 5 stars all the way! Thank you so much Dave.



  • 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!
