Dave was an excellent addition to the events schedule of our 60th Birthday bash. From start to finish, Dave kept in contact and asked questions to better understand his audience. The attendees were across all ages (5-93yrs) and mixed heritage. Despite some challenging braided hairstyles Dave captured features and attributes to a 'tee'. There were people queuing especially couples and compliments in abundance. The youngsters said he was funny and had 'good banter'. But he does not talk for talk sake, he draws and does so very well. I would say he captured over 40 images and tried to get everyone in who wanted a drawing. He worked flat out for 3hrs, no break, just a glass of red! I would happily recommend Dave as a suicidal and unusual touch to brighten an event.

Absolutely amazing, couldn't have asked for a better artist. Each character was unique to the individual. All of the guests were happy with their pictures and thought it was a brilliant idea to have at a wedding. Couldn't recommend high enough

Dave is such a lovely man. Our guests were all delighted with their caricatures! We're going to frame ours and hang it up on the wall. Highly recommend. Also, we really appreciated how far he travelled to be at our wedding. 10/10 :)



  • 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!
