Kev the Caricaturist
Kev loves providing laughter and entertainment for guests.
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.
Great drawings and fun interaction.
