Honestly we couldn't recommend Mike more, he was incredible and such a hit with guests, everyone found the drawings accurate and hilarious. He worked with the space we had available and drew for a solid 2 hours, capturing all our guests. Mike was great at entertaining us and we will treasure the caricatures forever! I would recommend him for any event you might have and we will definitely hire him again if we have parties in Newcastle in future!

We had Mike at our wedding for 6 hours and this guy never stopped! He was so so popular, a massive hit with our guests. There was a constant queue of people wanting to get their caricature done. We are so glad we hired him, he’s a lovely guy, very friendly and professional. Mike was smartly dressed, punctual and communication was brilliant. Lots of our guests have asked where we found him and loved the idea of Mike at their wedding in the future. Honestly get this man booked he’s amazing. With kinds regards from Mr & Mrs Goldsmith (Vanessa & Neil)

Mike is absolutely fantastic. He was very professional . He arrived on time ,was extremely friendly and easy to get on with. It took him a few minutes to get set up and people started to queue up practically straight away. Mike put up a board to advertise his work. He likes to show onlookers what he is drawing, as this adds to the fun. Mike did not stop all evening! I really don’t know how he did it! Everyone who had a caricature done, was absolutely blown away by the results . I had one done with my daughter, and my partner had one done on his own. All of us were extremely pleased with the outcome. I would thoroughly recommend Mike as he is really talented. You don’t need to look anywhere else. Mike is the guy to help your event be even more entertaining. People will be talking about it for years to come. Can’t thank Mike enough for bringing an extra bit of sparkle to my event.
