I get asked lots of questions about my caricatures. Here are some of the questions I get asked the most. If your question is not listed below just call or email me and I will get back to you with an answer!

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.

Yes I do. Please view my gallery for some samples and contact me to discuss your requirements

I use high quality artist materials (permanent markers, pastels and oil based charcoal sticks) along with A4 or A3 paper to suit your particular event. 

Yes I do couple caricatures. In fact, I receive many requests for couple caricatures – especially at weddings!

This is no problem! I work with a number of caricature artists and can organise this for you too.

All you need to do is provide me with three chairs and a small table. I always bring my own portable lighting so you don’t need to worry about lighting at the venue.

Usually I don’t. Not everyone wants to get a caricature. However, everyone is entertained as it is very enjoyable to watch the caricatures being drawn – especially as I interact with my audience to keep things lively!
