Very Recent Review: Absolutely amazing....Sam was a great hit with our guests! Everyone loved their images and have raved about how great he was. He fitted in seamlessly and was so attentive and easy to talk to which made it very comfortable for everyone. Thank you so much to Sam for giving everyone a great memory and keepsake from our special day. I'd recommend him to anyone and really hope he continues to do well. We'll certainly be in touch again if we host another event.

Our wedding was due to take place in May. Due to Covid we had to rearrange to 1st September.

We had booked Sam as entertainment for our guests and sadly due to restrictions our wedding became very different to our original am plan. Therefore our booking with Sam was cancelled.

However Sam was brilliant from the moment we booked him, his communication was excellent and we kept him updated throughout lockdown. Sam was so flexible and was happy to accommodate any change of plans.

As our wedding consisted of 10 guests, Sam kindly agreed to provide a drawing of my husband and I so that our guests could sign this!

The picture was amazing and Sam completed this using some photos of us and a picture of the dress and suit.

I am so grateful to Sam and absolutely love the drawing he provided.

I could not recommend Sam more highly!

Thanks so much Sam

Sorry can’t comment on Sam as I broke my pelvis and it was cancelled but Sam was lovely and caring and I am still in contact with him as my party is going ahead next year

Caricaturist At Your Event

Hello! I'm Sam & here's why I'd be a great option for you. As a full-time artist & caricaturist - I've drawn hundreds of people so a) I'm used to sketching people & making them look great & b) making guests at any function laugh - guaranteed! I'm quick on the draw so I'll get around to sketching a fair few of your guests. Please do check out my reviews. You won't need to provide anything for me & should you wish, I'll draw all everyone on bespoke headed paper to commemorate the day as a souvenir. This will cost you nothing extra. Each caricature is then presented as a gift in a plastic sleeve to take home. I've attached some examples of my work to give you an idea. I usually arrive just before my allotted time so that I can introduce myself to you & set up which takes just a few minutes. At checkout time, I’ll come & let you know, check that you were happy with proceedings. It’s really as simple as that. Any questions - just email me & I'll get right back to you as soon as poss.

Caricatures Drawn & Sent To You Online

Hi everyone, I hope everyone is staying safe in these strange times. I'm Sam. Whilst we're all in lockdown and can't get to the shops to buy gifts, I'd like to offer my online caricaturing service. Need a personal present for a loved one? Just email me a photograph or two and I'll create an original beautiful caricature for you in pen and ink. I'll email you a hi-resolution copy of the artwork within 24 hours so that you have a copy you can send or print off. I'll then post you the original artwork to reach you within a few days. I can do individual or group shots and tailor the picture however you want i.e if he/she loves dancing, I can dress and pose them appropriately. If your subject enjoys a certain sport. I can even picture them with another celebrity if they're big fans of somebody famous. This package is for a single caricature - that includes the email version and the subsequent original artwork sent rolled in a tube.
From: £65 per event


  • How long is the act?

    As a caricaturist, I'm there for the time that I'm booked. So a minimum of two hours and up to 6 hours if need be.

  • What is included in the wedding package?

    If you book me for a wedding, I'll create each caricature on exclusively headed paper as a souvenir of the event.

  • What other services to you provide?

    I'm a caricaturist . However, I also teach cartoon classes where I encourage everyone to join in with me with tips, tricks and techniques on how to cartoon just about anything. I also create cartoons as part of live business events. This involves recording the topics discussed in cartoon form.

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

    If I'm caricaturing, I'll provide all of the art materials I'll need to fulfil a booking.

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

    I don't need time to prepare for an event where I'm caricaturing. If I run a cartoon class, I just need to know beforehand how many guests will be in attendance and chairs on the day.

  • How long prior to an event is a deposit refundable?

    30 days.

  • When is full payment due?

    28 days before an event. If a booking is made less than 28 days before, full payment will be due.

Set List/Services

Every drawing is signed by myself and presented to the guest in question. I'll arrive at the event with enough pens and paper to sketch as many people as possible in the chosen time. Depending on the venue, I'm happy to sit in one spot or mingle with those present. To secure your date, all you need to do is pay the initial deposit. My bank details will be sent to you with an invoice once all the details of the event have been agreed upon. I also ask for payment in advance of the booking so that I can focus on entertaining your guests upon arrival. Thank you!
