Silu arrived on time and was very unassuming, he worked non stop for the whole time! He even stayed a little longer to complete the last few drawings of people in the line waiting, very professional, and excellent drawing! Thanks Silu my guests loved your work!

Silu was a fantastic addition to the day. His drawings were very entertaining, and he much them in his warm and friendly demeanour. Many guests commented on how much they enjoyed his presence at the event. I thoroughly recommend Silu for any event!

Thank you so much for coming. Everyone LOVED your pictures!

Do you do caricatures from photos prior to the events/weddings?
Yes. If you hire me to do live caricature for your guests only, you can choose to have your caricature done (bride and groom etc.) prior to the event from photos if you think you'll be too busy during your event to attend the live session. Please let me know if you need this service to be included in your quote. Thank you!
What experience do you have working with children?
I have been requested to drawn at lots of children's parties and I think there are no better models for cartoons than kids. Probably I'm one of the best caricature artists when it's about drawing children (check certified review by Andrew Shires @ Polka Theatre, children’s theatre in Wimbledon) because of my way of drawings portraits (check my gallery). I know I'm doing something special when they tell me "I want to draw like you".
How much time do you need to prepare for an act?
I always arrive at least 30 minutes / 1-hour earlier, to discuss every detail and to be sure we can set the event how is convenient for you. As well, I arrive earlier to prepare myself, to be in the best shape when the event starts.
Can we personalise every drawing with our logo & branding?
Yes. I'll be happy to add stickers (provided by you) at the bottom of every front page.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance?
Do you need specific materials or conditions to offer your service?
1. Decent lighting (indoors) 2. Two chairs normal size 3. A small table is helpful for my tools and to present some drawings. 4. Shaded area (outdoor), if possible. The sunlight is very powerful and reflected from the paper makes the drawing process more challenging.
How long is the act?
Minimum 2 hours per event. Portraits from 5 minutes.
