University mid year orientation days are coming soon

Make Orientation Day at your University memorable by hiring a live caricature artist!

University Orientation Days mark the beginning of an exciting new chapter in students’ lives. Spanning multiple days and brimming with activities, they exude a vibrant, carnival like atmosphere. Incorporating a live caricature artist into the mix not only enhances the enjoyment of the event but also provides students with a lasting memento.

Over the years, I’ve had the pleasure of participating in numerous University Orientation Days. With the ability to complete each caricature in under 5 minutes, every student will have the opportunity to walk away with their own personalised keepsake.

While I’m based in Melbourne, I’m also available to travel for University Orientation Days in regional Victoria. For larger events, I can coordinate additional caricature artists to join me. Remember to secure your booking early to ensure my availability for your University Orientation Day.

I’m the owner and artist of Melbourne Caricatures, as well as an all-round nice guy!

It’s a long story, but my journey into the exciting world of caricatures began back in 1993 when I left Melbourne for Spain on my first solo travel adventure.

After having trouble holding down a job on my travels, my Uncle came to my rescue and hired me to assist him with his caricature business. My first job was to stand on the side of the footpath and use my English skills to bring in the customers. After a few months I not only fell in love with caricature but found that I had a real talent for it!

There have been many twists and turns in the story, but I finally decided in 2015, at the age of 42, to take the plunge and become a live caricature artist in Melbourne. It's the best decision I ever made and I love putting a smile on people's faces!

Contact me today and I will guarantee laughter and entertainment at your next function!

A caricature is essentially a portrait which exaggerates the key features of a person. It is a humorous portrait that maintains the person’s recognisability.

I can draw a face in 4 to 5 minutes. That’s about 10 to 15 caricatures a hour!

Yes, I have done live drawings of some famous faces – including AFL Players like Shane Crawford. I have been on TV. I even drew Adele at a private function in Portsea in 2017.

I am based in Melbourne and will travel anywhere in Melbourne, the rest of Victoria, as well as interstate.

I do caricatures for lots of different events. These include Weddings, Birthday Parties, Christmas Parties, Bar Mitzvahs, Corporate Events, Trade Shows, Conferences, Tertiary Events and many more! 

Just give me a call on 0402 303 615 or send an email and I will get back to you as quick as I can.

I do both! Just let me know your preference at the time of booking.
