Hi, my name is Paul Vale, known as ‘facebloke’ for caricatures. I am based in Wokingham, Berkshire, RG41 3AW but will travel within the Berkshire and London area to events.
For 20 years plus I have been interested in caricatures, even throughout my years in advertising, corporate marketing etc I still maintained a regular slot for this mad art of twisting portraits! Selling commissions drawn from photos has enabled me to maintain my love of this strange interest. Live event caricatures keep me sharp, there’s just you the client and paper on which to leave a good impression – oh and the crowd that watch as you do it!
Drawing a crowd is just so much fun, it’s really not like work at all! I’ve been lucky enough to be asked on television appeared with Matt & Michelle on Heart radio along with bumping into the odd celebrity or two things which I would never have done without picking up that pen and sketching!
Give me a ring should you have an event, party or commission in mind – it costs nothing to talk!
