Paul Baker - Caricatures
Paul has been working as a London based full time caricaturist and cartoon illustrator for more than 20 years.
Influenced by Mort Drucker and Jack Davis from MAD magazine, Paul started drawing cartoons and caricatures from a very young age. At university he studied Film and TV work where his interest in caricature led him to train at the Spitting Image workshop designing and modeling clay heads to be made into the famous latex puppets. In 1995, after the show finished, he went freelance and has been in high demand ever since, with his work appearing in The Guardian, Punch and The New Statesman.
As one of the country’s top live caricaturists, he produces quick and hilarious caricatures of guests at various corporate events, wedding receptions, exhibitions, conferences, promotions, dinners and parties.

An absolute professional, my husband and I weren’t aware of him, as he just got on with drawing our guests to their delight...a lot of them now have their caricatures as Facebook profiles and people really enjoyed looking through them on the night in the box we had to keep them safe before taking them home. I know our parents had reservations about if a caricaturist would be a success and they have all since said it was one of the r...
