David The Caricaturist
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.
He was a lovely person, all my guests really enjoyed getting their pictures done, I would recommend him to people.
Having David at our party enhanced the evening. He 'mixed and mingled' as we requested, and produced very amusing and appropriate caricatures of our family and friends. EVERYONE thought he was great fun. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone for their party or event. Thank you. Dave and Gail Bradford

David arrived on time and our speeches were still going on - he was due to work 6pm until 9pm but stayed until 10pm at no extra cost. He went down a storm with the wedding guests, lots of people now have David's caricatures as their Facebook profile picture! Even at 10pm people were begging him for "just one more". Would highly recommend - a great addition to our wedding.

David arrived in plenty of time and started mingling with the guests. His caricatures were fantastic! People were wanting more than one and he patiently did as everyone asked. He posed for selfies with the guests also which added a nice touch! My son is interested in booking David for his wedding next year and as soon as we have the date we will be back! Thanks David for helping to make my party a success!

David was brill, all the guests love the pictures, only thing is I wish I'd booked him for longer.
David was polite and punctual but most importantly, what an amazing talent. Over the 2 days of the exhibition he must've drawn over 50 caricatures and they were all amazing. Everyone was so impressed. He was also able to draw from pictures on a mobile phone so most people got their loved ones an early Christmas present!
Thanks so much David for being at our Corporate Event to celebrate us managing 1000 properties. Everybody thought you were fantastic and a really nice, friendly man and were very impressed by the work that you did. You are a true professional and we will certainly ask you along to any future events we organise.
David was lovely and a very talented artist. Our students were very pleased with his work, and he went down a treat. We will be sure to book him again.
David was absolutely brilliant! The only problem was that we wish we would have had him for longer. Everybody loved the drawings!
Pre the event you were prompt and all details set out plainly. David arrived in good time for the event and was appreciated by all of our guests and created the exact atmosphere we wanted. He is a very talented, polite and lovely young man, thanks for everything worth every penny, As ever Fred Plant
David did an amazing job! Everyone had a great experience. He was really friendly and the pictures look fantastic, made us all laugh. He even stayed a bit longer as the party started a bit later due to traffic which I thought was great of him. We would recommend it to anyone for corporate parties. Many thanks!
Was an amazing night, the guests loved David and he was a great addition to the wedding! Thank you.
He was brilliant and all the guests loved his work. He is very friendly and artistic. He really out did himself. I would definitely recommend him to anyone that wanted to add a little more to their event.
Fantastic, talented and mingled with our guests, even better than we hoped for. Many thanks David
David's drawings were really great. He was very accommodating and even took photos of people who were too busy to stop for him, then doing the drawings from the photos. Thanks David the drawings were great.
Excellent, David was wonderful - no complaints and we would recommend him to our family and friends.
David is a friendly, professional and super talented artist. I wish there was a higher rating system as he is 5++++++++++++. He was outstanding at our wedding and cannot recommend him enough. Thank you very much to David for being part of our special day & also to all the staff at Warble who made the whole booking process run like a dream.
I found Warble Entertainment very helpful; Emily insured that I got everything I needed and I was more than happy with David's caricature. It was very straight forward to sort the booking and I would definitely use Warble Entertainment again. Many thanks!
Dave was excellent at our wedding, he provided brilliant caricatures of the guests and the bride, groom, bridesmaids, bets men and ushers. Thanks for matching our requirements. We would recommend Dave to anyone considering some artistic fun at any event. Thank you very much! Jason & Jacqui Lewis
It was such a pleasure to have David at our wedding. The guests really loved all of his drawings and I couldn't recommend him enough. Thanks David.
Very efficient and talented young man. Good with clients but not over imposing. Overall very impressed.
David was absolutely fantastic and by far the stand out addition to our wedding (it's the main talking point of the day). He was professional and helpful in the run up to the wedding - answering any and all questions promptly. On the day itself he mingled with our guests and everyone who had a caricature was over the moon - we only wish we'd booked him for longer. Can't recommend him enough.
David is fantastic - would not hesitate to recommend or use again. As well as working well and doing exactly what we needed for our event, he drew a brilliant picture of myself and a colleague so I could tell how good he is. Well done and thank you.
Amazing! All the guests had their picture drawn and most have put on Facebook or Twitter. A great addition to the night, and great memories in pencil created! Highly recommended.
Cracking chap, highly talented!!!
David was a really nice guy, he provided some fun drawings for people and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending him or hiring him again for another party. Thanks David for helping entertain people!
Thank you David for providing your amazing caricature drawings at Abigail's 21st. We asked you to mix and mingle with our guests who ranged from 16 to 86 they were all delighted with your gift and have responded already to say thank you. The very merry Un Birthday party theme provided a raucous event with a lot of fun David provided some brilliant memories for those guests who were lucky enough to be drawn. We asked David to look out for the quieter guests and certain characters he did this brilliantly and was very much appreciated. Once again than you to all at Warble you are a pleasure to deal with. We have been asked for your details.
Absolutely amazing work. David was lovely and nothing was too much trouble. We would highly recommend him. Thank you David.
David was great! Look forward to working with him again.
David was excellent and we would absolutely book him again and recommend him to others, I wish we'd have asked him to stay for the whole evening as our guests loved having their picture drawn. Thank you so much, we would absolutely use Warble for future events. The whole process was seamless. Many thanks Emma Robinson.
Absolutely fantastic, went out of his way to please and very professional. A * Thanks so much.

Great entertainment for our guests. Was really flexible and created great pictures. I would highly recommend.
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. Jennie at Warble was also fantastic, and made the whole booking process straightforward and worry free.
David was amazing, and was a real hit with all the guests at my daughters 18th as he provided us with many laughs and happy memories. A really nice person, I Would highly recommend him.

David was fantastic at our wedding. All our guests said what a great idea and waited for their drawing. Very happy to recommend David he was 5*

We would like to thank David for the wonderful service that he provided at our daughter's wedding on Friday the 19th April 2013. Our guests were delighted with their caricatures. Not only did David arrive on time, he also stayed one and a half hours extra to ensure that all of our guests were accommodated. David was polite and his work was very good. We would use him again ourselves as well as recommend him to friends, family and colleagues. David you really enthralled our guests and made our event a resounding success. THANK YOU very much.
Fantastic! From making the initial enquiry, to booking, to the event - we can't fault the service. David was brilliant and made it such an enjoyable day for all. A huge thanks to you all. David had people waiting for him, from our point of view we had the best stand at the conference. Please pass on our thanks to David. A massive thanks to you also, from my initial enquiry all the way through, you were really helpful and made it very easy.

Absolutely fantastic! Everyone loved him. David was a true professional in his work and worth every penny. Would recommend him to anyone.
It was one of the best decisions that we made booking David. He was prompt and well presented, so friendly with our guests and his work was absolutely amazing. Our guests laughed all night and they thought it was awesome entertainment. David himself was a pleasure to meet and having him part of our Wedding we will never forget it. Don't be surprised if you get more bookings from this. Amazing start to finish. Thank you, Kelly & Peter Riley (23.02.13)
David is very talented and was very popular among the guests at this event. Many thanks David!
David was amazing and the guests loved him. He made our day extra special and managed to fit all our guests in. The next day our guests spoke more about David than they did about the wedding. Highly recommended and his work was great too.
David was brilliant!! He worked constantly for the 2 hours he was there as everyone kept jumping in the seat to be drawn!! His work is really good, everyone loved their pictures.... I will book him again for my next party!! Thanks David and thank you Warble for another great act!!! Carrie
The booking process was very easy. The pictures looked great, and he also brought sleeves, which we have never seen before, this was brilliant as it meant that people could take these away and they wouldn't get ruined with drinks being spilt and everything. We were pleased with the standard of the pictures that he was creating. Thank you.
David was nothing short of SUPERB! He arrived promptly and stayed well past the time we had booked him for, which he didn't have to do. His professionalism was amazing and everyone who met him commented on how great they thought he was. In short, Many thanks to Warble Entertainment for recommending him for our event. I will CERTAINLY be passing on your details to anyone I know who is organising an event and requires something a bit different! Many Many Thanks.
Fantastic work by David and he worked extra hard to ensure everyone got a drawing. I would definitely recommend to everyone to add that special touch. Thank you David
David was fantastic at our event last night and went down really well with all the guests. Would highly recommend him. His pictures were fantastic.
Excellent service from Samantha....... we were struggling to find an artist for our STAND UP TO CANCER charity fundraiser THAT evening!!!!!!! We had been let down. Samantha was confident she could help us, and within an hour we had a confirmed booking and deposit paid!...... what a RELIEF. David turned up at our house, well on time to set up and settle in for his evening task! You could not ask for a nicer, friendlier, man to enter your home. His work was SUPERB. We had a great evening.
We can't praise David enough. He was absolutley wonderful and really added to our special day. All of our guests were highly entertained and commented afterwards how fun it had been to have him there as they all had a momento of the day which was much more personal than table favours or almonds! David was most gracious and professional and introduced himself on arrival and then stayed around till the end of the dinner to do a final drawing of us (the bride and groom) which was very much appreciated. I would most certainly recommend David and Warble to friends and family, his artwork was fabulous and the manner in which he worked his way away the room was most impressive. A truly talented gentleman. Fiona and Paul Kirrane
David arrived punctually and ahead of time, even though he had been occupied at another event 2.5 hours away. He was really friendly and became a popular act throughout the reception and lots people enjoyed having their caricatures done. We would definitely use David again for future events and hope he also enjoyed working with us. Thank you very much!
It was a pleasure to have David as part of my pre-wedding celebrations. He came on time. Was very polite and friendly. All our guests loved him and his work. David really helped make our party one to remember. Everyone was really impressed. An amazing artist.

David arrived on time and was set-up on time. Brilliant caricaturist, friendly and a good hardworker!
We booked David for our wedding as many guests had never met and we where looking for an icebreaker. David contacted me prior to the event to discuss what I wanted and I am so pleased that I listened to his advice as it worked brilliantly. David was very professional and polite. He was great at putting people at ease and his drawings where so good, guests where queuing all night. David stayed over his booked time as he did not leave until everyone who wanted a picture had one. Drawings where amazing and guests now have something to keep as a reminder of our wedding. I wouldn't hesitate to book David again and would highly recommend him for any occasion as his he manages to make brilliant caricatures that are inoffensive which in itself is no mean feat!!! Just like to say a BIG thank you xxx
Fantastic! Fuss-Free booking. Our guests absolutely loved David and he was so polite and very talented. Would definatley recommend xx
Brilliant job, thank you very much. Will be pleased to recommend your services to anybody who asks, I know our wedding guests enjoyed his work and have a unique memory to keep. Thank you very much.

Many thanks to David for coming on Saturday. Huge success - I have my picture on my office door. Please thank him from us here.
David was great. He arrived well before time and was ready for when guests arrived. He got through a large proportion of our guests and they were all really happy with the results. His drawings really captured our friends and families personalities. He even sent us a drawing of us after the wedding as we didn't have time to pose! Thanks for being a part of our day that guests commented on and enjoyed. Highly recommended!
We had a great night. David took time with everyone and was very popular. His drawings were fantastic. We will book him again.

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.
- Please allow up to 10-15 minutes to set-up.
- David is happy to 'mix and mingle' amongst guests, but if you would prefer to sit for caricatures, a small area would be required with enough room for 2 chairs and an easel. It would also be handy for the artist to be near a power socket in order to use an lamp in case of poor lighting (disco/poor lighting etc).
- Caricatures usually take 5-6 minutes per person (everyone is different!).
- Drawings are completed using quick-dry black marker pens (with shading) on A3 or A4-sized paper.
- 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.
