About

Having gained a degree in Illustration at Glyndwr University in Wrexham, North Wales, David has since gained experience by providing ‘on-the-spot’ caricatures at various parties as well as providing wonderful private commissions based on photographs.

David has a friendly, relaxing approach and will entertain your guests with his unique style of drawing which will capture your likeness while also providing plenty of laughs.

Artwork is drawn on A3 size paper (A4 for 'mix-and-mingle' events) which can also be specially labelled with prior notice, such as the names of the couple getting married and the date of event. Drawings usually take up to 5 minutes to complete for each person.

David is also available to provide personalised Wedding Signature Boards – created in advance from your photographs, a romantic storyboard will display all the important dates leading up to your big day (first date, hen and stag nights, location of the ceremony, honeymoon destination, etc.). It can be mounted with enough space for your guests to leave you a message.

Extra Info

Q. How long does it take to draw a caricature?
A. A single caricature usually takes 5-6 minutes to draw (everyone is different!), obviously it would take longer to draw couples and groups.

Q. Will guests to able to keep their drawings?
A. Of course! All artwork for live events is drawn with quick-dry Tombow marker pens and Prismacolour Art Stix for shading.

Q. What size paper do you use?
A. Working from a stationary position, artwork will be provided on A3 sized paper, A4 for 'mix-and-mingle' events.

Q. Do you work from a stationary position or do you mingle with the crowd?
A. I am happy to work from a stationary or mix and mingle!

Q. How many hours do you work at live events?
A. I am available for 2, 3 or 4-hour sets. Also available to work longer with breaks.

Q. When is the best time to hire a caricaturist?
A. It is strongly advised that you do not book a caricaturist during times when meals are being served, guests generally do not like to be interrupted while eating, and the artist is likely to get in the way of waiters/staff members attempting to clear plates.

Lorraine Scobbie | Wedding | Merseyside

We can't recommend David enough. All the guests thought he was wonderful and were totally taken with the him. There were queues at times! In fact my mum complained she couldn't get hers done as every time she went over, a line of people were waiting! David really added to our special day, was entertaining and good fun. To have the drawing as a memento was really special for both us, the bride and groom, and our guests. He was very polite, professional and a true gentleman throughout. I would have no hesitation in recommending David to anyone.
