Bob the Caricaturist

From : £250

Located : Derbyshire

An introduction

Bob is not your typical ‘big nose/big teeth’ caricaturist. With his sitters he likes to show a bit of sensitivity, get a good likeness, maybe add a bit of glamour while certainly having some fun – and all in five minutes!

Bob has been working as an instant caricaturist / portrait artist for around ten years, and as a freelance illustrator for a good deal longer. As such he can bring a lot of experience, professional technique and variety to his caricature work.

Bob is happy to be ‘in character’; for fancy dress events and has been Rembrandt and a French Belle Epoque-style artist. He can therefore theme the caricatures; Bob has done things like ‘Wild West’ wanted posters, sketched people in the style of Van Gogh and Picasso and even drawn sitters as if they’re characters from the Simpsons and Manga comics!

Extra Info

Bob averages about 5-6 minutes per sketch, and he usually does well over 30 caricatures during a three-hour session. He can work standing, going table to table or at a fixed seated spot. He works on A4 paper, though he usually has an A3 pad handy for couples. Bob's only real requirement is reasonable ‘reading’ light to work by – drawing under disco lights can be a bit tricky!

Bob arrived on time and came and introduced himself. He had already taken a quick look at the room where the evening reception was to be held and had selected a place to sit which he felt was well lit and suitable. I didn't really get an opportunity to meet with him again as he was so busy from the minute he started (and I was also busy with our guests!). However, the feedback from the guests was very positive and everyone was very pleased with their drawings. Thank you.

I booked Bob for my 50th birthday celebrations as I wanted all my friends to have a memento of the evening to take home with them. Bob was a nice guy. Prompt and very accommodating (he made sure that no-one was missed out). Our party of ladies were quite excitable and boisterous, but Bob was great and was an entertaining addition to the festivities. Thank you.
