Caricatures in Berkshire, London and the South of England
If you have a wedding, show or corporate event in or around Berkshire, and want something special, why not let me draw caricatures – it’s fun for everyone!
Entertaining your audience with a caricaturist is a great talking point and the guests go home with a special picture unique to them! It helps make your event special and remembered for a very long time.
This video explains what I offer drawing live for weddings, corporate, parties and also some info on my studio work for gifts.
My caricature style will not offend anyone. I enjoy my work because I celebrate the differences in all of our faces and personalities. Caricature for me is not about ‘a big nose’ or ‘large ears’, it’s about the face, personality and individuality of everyone. If the person in front of me is sensitive I will pick up on that, but if the character is larger than life and game for a laugh, well I might well enlarge the nose just a tad more
Facebloke Caricatures are fun for those being drawn and others watching which is why it works so well for: weddings | corporate events | parties | shows and exhibitions, in fact any event that you want me to ‘draw a crowd’. and you get to take something unique home!
This video shows me working at the exclusive Anonymous Concierge Party, very enjoyable and well presented event.
Apologies for not updating my post for a while, it’s been mad with weddings and corporate events lately. I’ve introduced technology to sit alongside my traditional pen and paper caricature drawings. I’ve wanted to do this for a while, but having tried the Surface, older Ipad and various other things I’ve never felt the same as I do when drawing on paper. However, after a visit to Apple in the Oracle and playing for the best part of a morning with the new Ipad Pro and Pen – well it’s just a step above and I had to have one.
After much fiddling and drawing I now have specific brushes which are similar to my traditional pens. Happy with the results I’ve done a couple of events and they seem to be well received When working live with Ipad Pro, I take a wireless printer with me so each person gets a postcard size picture but I can also hook up to a large screen so people can watch me draw. The beauty with tech though is that I also upload all the images to the cloud, provide guests with a link and they can go along and download the image digitally – so it doesn’t matter if you spill beer on your hard copy as the original is always available to download.
Below are a few examples of my black and white / colour Ipad Pro styles and here is a link if you want to see a video of Ipad Pro Sketching – Just me doing some evening practice sketches :-
