About


Book Jonathan if you're looking for quality. No two drawings the same!

A professional cartoonist for over 20 years, his work appears in The Times, The Spectator and Radio Times, and has been exhibited at London's Cartoon Museum and the National Portrait Gallery.

Consider the benefits of drawing from an easel;

  • guests have a laugh watching their friends being drawn
  • that being drawn is a choice
  • guests choose when to be drawn, are not interrupted
  • makes a nice entertainment feature in the room

Jonathan does not offer Mix and Mingle drawing and only works from an easel.

Jonathan was great at our wedding. He was in contact prior to the event to iron any finer details out, and did a smashing job on the day. His work created lots of buzz, discussion and laughter! Our guests were queuing up around the room for him! What also impressed us was that he stayed a little extra than arranged to try and get the guests that had queued up done before he left. Much appreciated.

What can I say about this chap... Jonathan arrived early to set up and unfortunately our speeches went on a little longer than expected so instead of starting at 5:30, it was nearer to 6:00. However he was so accommodating and told me that this was not a problem. He was due to finish at 8:30 however, my wife and I sat down with him at 9:00 and he did say to me that he would probably finish up at 9:30. His last one was eventually 10:00. I cannot say enough about Jonathan and would totally recommend him. His caricatures went down a treat by everyone at the wedding and he was such a nice guy too. Talk about going the extra mile! Many thanks, Jonathan, you were brilliant. Best regards, Steve and Janetta, Bella and Ben.

Jonathan was excellent - punctual and no hassle to set up, friendly and engaging in manner and fantastically accurate and precise with his art work. Jonathan really went the extra mile in his work, and diligently got through the long line of people wanting a drawing without rushing or compromising on the quality of the work itself. Thank you, Jonathan, for making our party extra special and one to remember!

Jonathan didn't stop all night! He always had a queue waiting or observing. Jonathan was kind, courteous and patient. His sketches were received excellently and everyone said how great he was and that it was nice to have something a bit different at the wedding. The caricatures were amazing and we got a copy to keep at the end in a plastic pouch afterwards, which was a small, but thoughtful touch. I would happily recommend him to anyone!

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.

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

    FAQs

    • Jonathan the Caricaturist works seated at an easel, as it gives best results.

    • The best time to book him for a wedding is the evening reception.
    • Expect drawings to be very popular with guests. Minimum bookings are three hours because of this!
    • Drawings are A4 and in ink, with an A3 drawing of the Bride and Groom or the event's VIP.
    • The fee is for working time on the day and can't include artwork in advance. Please ask for a quote for what you have in mind.
    • Please note that Jonathan doesn't do mix and mingle work.
