John’s communication was excellent during the build up to our vow renewal and was easy to get set up. He arrived whilst we were doing the speeches and once we’d finished he was just completing our characature. Everyone loved John and he had a permanent line through the evening. It leaves people with a memory from the event and John was comfortable talking with all of the guests.
Very highly recommended

John was very good after he arrived by bus from Brighton docking in Derby at 6.20pm.
It took him nearly an hour by taxi to reach the hotel which should have been a 15/20 min ride, that’s because he was unable understand which address the venue was being held.
I told him that when he arrived in Derby to take a taxi to the hotel ! But because he kept changing his destination to the driver it ended up with a twice the taxi fare! Should have been Around £12 ended up a £25 taxi ride.
Otherwise his work was very good. If there’s a next time someone nearer to Derby would be better.

We hired John over the Christmas period to be the 'surprise' entertainment for the Christmas party events we were running. John's caricature skills were really impressive and everyone commented on how so delighted they were with his work. John is incredibly organised and is not afraid to get stuck in! We would definitely use John for future events, thank you!

John was fantastic! He was so accommodating and makes you feel at ease straight away. He was able to capture distinguishing features as well as people’s personalities brilliantly. Everyone was delighted with their pictures and we would definitely recommend!

Set List/Services

Fun Live Caricature Session on top-quality lines

Ways to sketch at your venue:

1. Sitting down:

I will use 2 metres square maxim to accommodate your guests, their drinks and myself with my equipment.

Also, I usually include a displayer to showing some samples of my previous caricatures as my artistic portfolio.

2- In stand up;

I am sketching your guest while I am walking around the tables.

(This second option is only recommendable at least if you have enough space to walk around the tables without disturbing the people next where I stop to sketch.)
