About


Kev is a top British caricature artist. Imagine Richard Gere drawing your guests. Kev has often been told he looks a lot like the film star but more importantly Kev is talented with the marker pen. Kev is an East Devon based caricature artist with many years experience as an artist and entertainer. Kev's caricatures are a great addition to any event – weddings, parties, corporate functions and trade stands. His drawings provide a superb talking point and are just the thing to bring people together.

Kev usually draws at an easel but can be mobile with his clipboard. As a guide, more people can be drawn while Kev sits at an easel. Drawing at an easel allows guests to stand behind and watch as the caricature is drawn, which also provides most of the entertainment. Essential for Kev's drawing is good lighting and willing victims.

Kev uses high quality A4 card and specialist marker pens. Each caricature takes approximately 5 minutes (or less) and thus could produce 12 to 15 faces per hour if there is a continuous queue of smiling faces. Included are clear plastic pockets to protect the finished artwork. Kev is often accompanied by his wife Jill who will take photographs of your guests with their caricature. Jill is great at striking up a rapport with guests while they wait to have their caricature drawn. 

Kev also draws caricatures from photographs. He can produce colour or B&W artwork from your photographs. The caricatures can be 'head and shoulders' or 'full body' and can be personalised with sporting kits and equipment or hobbies. Kev requires at least 3 good quality photographs of the subject's head, plus 2 full body pictures if a full body caricature is required.

    FAQs

    What equipment do you need to provide at the venue?
    Kev needs very little – 4 chairs, a small area with good lighting that's clear of obstacles and loud music.

    Kev’s preferred booking is 2 hours, but he can booked for 3 hours.

    How long does it take to draw each caricature?
    Kev takes approximately 5 minutes (or less) to draw each person but each drawing provides entertainment for all those gathered around watching – especially for those who feel compelled to chip in with witty remarks.
