Jonathan was amazing! Everyone loved him and he was so generous to us. We will definitely recommend him to my friends and we will use him myself again for another event. Thanks a lot for your recommendation. Stassi & Ben

Kul Bwail (Chairman - Redditch Round Table), Charity Event, Worcestershire
The guests at our annual charity dinner were extremely pleased and happy with the drawings produced by Jonathan. He was professional and polite during the entire evening and was busy all night.

Andy Didcott, Birthday Party Event, Worcestershire
Jonathan, was outstanding. He called before the event to understand more about the event and any special requests and preparation that he could do prior. He arrived on time, stayed longer than the agreed time and did an outstanding job. Everyone at the Birthday party was delighted and we all had memories of the evening to take home. Jonathan's caricatures were detailed, accurate and captured the individuality of the people drawn. Highly recommended.

Ann Wynne, Birthday Party Event, Worcestershire
Absolutely marvellous. Helped to make the 21st birthday party a success. Please convey my thanks to Jonathan.

Louise Lefley, Birthday Party Event, Lincolnshire
I would like to take this opportunity in sending my sincere thanks to Jonathan The Caricaturist for my 40th party on 1st September 2012. This was definitely money well worth spent and helped make a fantastic party and even more brilliant party. So many of my friends and family thought it was such a fantastic idea and was something for them to take away with them from the night. He created so many moments of laughter for all those people who had their drawing done and created such a "buzz and atmosphere" on the night. Jonathan was extremely professional and very punctual and went out of his way especially to ensure all requests and requirements were met so thank you very very much. I would most definitely use this service again and in particular Jonathan. Thank you once again, I am sincerely grateful. Kind Regards, Louise

Jonathan is so friendly and the level of his work is outstanding. Our guests were blown away, some were asking how to book for their own wedding!

Lucy and Adrian, Wedding, Shropshire
What a fantastic thing to walk away with at the end of our wedding day.  It is so nice to have a high quality, yet fun drawing on our wall which really captures our mood. Jonathan picked out the small details and our guests were highly entertained watching the drawing unfold. We would highly recommend Jonathan if you want to have something different and unique at your wedding to wow your guests.

Debbie and Keith, Wigan
Many, many thanks for your amazing great work on our wedding day. Our guests have raved about you and your talent. They were delighted with their caricatures. We are so glad we booked you, you were the highlight of the evening reception without a doubt!

In 2012 he drew at an event attended by The Queen and Prince Philip, though they didn't sit for him!
