Book me as your Event Caricaturist
I have been keeping guests entertained as an Event Caricaturist creating fun caricature portraits with great likenesses for 25 years. The caricature portraits take me about 7-10 minutes each to draw and are drawn in black and white pen with grey tint marker shading. I have been drawing and entertaining people with fun caricatures and portraits for 25 years, with periods spent working in Australia and India. I cover mainly London and the South East but will travel further if requested to do so.
Where I appear as an Event Caricaturist
The Events I draw at include:- weddings, children’s parties, corporate events, birthday parties, school leavers parties, anniversaries, summer parties, garden parties, civil weddings, confirmations, christenings, Bar Mitzvah’s and many others. I travel to Kent, Sussex, London, Buckinghamshire, Surrey, Essex and other counties. If you think it would be great to have me attend, whatever the event then please get in touch! Click here to contact me and check my availability.
How I work
When I arrive at the event I invite guests to have a caricature drawn by going discretely from table to table or the hosts make an announcement that I am attending the event. I usually find a well lit part of a room at the event and set up a comfortable area for sitters to relax (usually prearranged). Once my sitter is comfortable I chat to them about interests in a relaxed and friendly way to make their experience as enjoyable as possible.
I tend not to exaggerate the facial features but draw more of a fun portrait with a real likeness. The drawings are always complementary. My sitters love the drawings I do of them, and I hear, get them framed as mementos of the occasion they attended.

“Thanks again for the weekend it made a great evening even better.” Rob S, Haden Welbeck, Tenterden, Kent
“Dear Paul, Thank you so much for agreeing to draw caricatures at our wedding. It was a great success with everyone telling us how much they enjoyed it. Thank you also for staying longer – we really appreciated that, and thank you for doing our caricatures – helping us create a unique thank you card to send to our guests. My fiancee and I were looking for something special to entertain the guests at our wedding reception, and with Paul we struck gold! So many people have since commented on how much fun it had been to be drawn, and that it was lovely to have something to take home by which to remember the occasion. It really was the wow factor we’d been looking for. Thank you Paul. “Nick and Kate, Sevenoaks, Kent
“Thanks for coming yesterday, everyone enjoyed the caricatures and event!” Constance L, Bel Groupe, Sevenoaks, Kent
“Thank you so much for helping make Nick’s 50th such a success!.” Nicolette L, Brimpton, Nr Reading, West Berkshire
“Hi Paul, Just a note to say personally and on behalf of the Kent District NFRN a big thank you for helping to make our Dinner Dance a big success. Your presence helped to break the ice with some of our guests and created a great talking point as you went round the tables and the guests then started comparing their pictures. I gather you didn’t have a shortage of people wanting to be drawn! Many thanks again.” Christine S, Maidstone, Kent
“I just wanted to drop you a line or two to say thanks again for providing your very popular caricature work at our Christmas party. Both yourself and Andrew went down very well with all those at the party and you both had very different styles which was a bonus. Everyone who had their portrait done, was very impressed with your work and it made a bog standard Christmas party, something a little more special. We only wished, we had booked you both for longer as it took people a while to come and see you and then there was a good queue that formed. Hopefully, we will be able to use your services again in the future.” Jo F, Tesco Underwriting, Reigate, Surrey
“It was a wonderful day, and we were so grateful for your contribution, really added to the atmosphere, many people commented and how they loved having you there and were taken away by how amusing and accurate the pictures were! I would highly recommend you to others looking to have something different and memorable at their wedding receptions. On a separate note, thanks for your flexibility, I had no track of time on the actual day itself but I know everything was running late, so it was very kind of you to stick around without a fuss. Thanks for being part of the day and for your congratulations.” Daniel H, Sevenoaks
“Great meeting you on Friday too, sorry I wasn’t around when you left. The event was a huge success, thank you, and I must say that all the people you drew wrere actually amazed at what they got! Thank you very much for coming, it was really a pleasure having you and yes definitely we will be calling you again in the future. I may not be around but I’ll surely pass your information to the next committee!.” Josh I, Medway Pharmacy Students, University of Kent and Greenwich
