Performance Schedule


Working on the spot it takes 5-6 minutes to draw each person and in a booking of 2.5 hours Mark would expect to draw 25-30 people, in 3 hours 30-35 and in 4 hours 40-45. When drawing one person there are always 4 or 5 others watching and being entertained. Mark can work standing or sitting and can bring lights and banners to set up an informal caricature studio if required.

The times Caricature artists work best are as an ice-breaker at the beginning of a function, when Mark works standing and move quickly round the party drawing people individually on A4. Then, later on Mark usually moves to a seated caricature area set up earlier with lights and banners to draw couples and small groups on A3.

Mark often uses a combination of these approaches and brings a stool for working round diners and lights for evening work.

Mark arrived in good time to set up and was a very popular man on the evening! I was one of the first people to have my drawing done and was very happy with the outcome. We had good feedback the following week on how well it went with everyone who attended. Thanks Mark for your time and hard work on the evening!

What a talented man. Sketching while dealing with tipsy wedding revellers. His sketches were outstanding, we would recommend Mark 100%.

    FAQs

    Weddings: Mark offers a number of services for weddings. Working from photos before the big day he can:

    • draw a caricature of the Bride and Groom for use on wedding stationery and which makes a memorable present for the couple or their parents.
    • draw Place Setting Caricatures for the Wedding Breakfast, which also make highly original Wedding Favours!
    • draw caricatures of the Bridesmaids and Best Man for memorable presents.

    Then on the day itself Mark can entertain your guests with his 5 minute on the spot caricatures. This is definitely where it's happening at the moment and in a typical performance of 2-3 hours he can draw 25-35 people. There are two times at weddings when this works best:

    • Immediately after the ceremony; Mark usually starts drawing just as the guests emerge from the wedding ceremony and the first glass of champagne is being poured. From then until the start of the Wedding Breakfast family and close friends are usually fully occupied with greetings and photos and he can help break the ice for other guests who may be less involved.
    • Later on in the day he can provide the ideal lead into the evening entertaiment.  At this time he usually starts by works standing to help break the ice but then settles into an informal caricature studio he's set up in advance with lights and banners to draw couples.

    Mark can draw standing or sitting, all drawings are signed, dated and include the names of the Bride and Groom.
