CARICATURES ARE GENERALLY DRAWN ON A3 (42CM X 30CM approx) CARD USING  QUICK DRY BLACK MARKER AND CAN BE FINISHED EITHER BLACK & WHITE OR BLACK & WHITE WITH GREY SHADING, A4 MAY BE USED ON REQUEST AND IN SITUATIONS WHERE SPACE IS LIMITED

FOR WEDDINGS I CAN EITHER COME IN BETWEEN THE SERVICE AND THE MEAL (2-3 HRS) OR IN THE EVENING AFTER THE MEAL (2-4HRS)

PARTIES AND OTHER EVENTS CAN BE ANYTHING FROM 2HRS TO ALL DAY

WHERE DO YOU NORMALLY SET UP ?

I PREFER TO STAY IN ONE SPOT AND ALLOW THE VICTIMS (I MEAN CUSTOMERS) TO COME TO ME AS THIS IS QUICKER  ALTHOUGH I CAN WANDER AMONGST GUESTS IF REQUIRED

I DO NEED A WELL LIT AREA BIG ENOUGH FOR 3 CHAIRS AND A SMALL TABLE FOR BEST RESULTS.

WHEREVER POSSIBLE  I SIT WITH MY BACK TO THE CUSTOMERS AS PART OF THE ENTERTAINMENT IS FOR OTHERS TO WATCH THE CARICATURES BEING DRAWN (USUALLY WITH SUITABLE COMMENTS THROWN IN)

DO YOU EVER OFFEND THE RECIPIENTS ?

THE CARICATURES THEMSELVES ARE DESIGNED TO BE AMUSING AND NOT OFFENSIVE ALTHOUGH IT CAN BE A FINE LINE
