Jason Webster

Event: Wedding
Location: East Yorkshire

Tom was brilliant, all our guests who were drawn by him loved the drawings. Tom even offered to stay longer to draw more guests who hadn't had an opportunity to be drawn. Polite, punctual, energetic and most of all a smashing chap. Would highly recommend to anyone. Jason and Keeley.

Tom was incredible! Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the portraits he created of each of them, and many to be framed including ours. Communication prior to our wedding day was brilliant and he introduced himself with a warm welcome on our day itself. I highly recommend anyone to use Tom the Caricaturist for any event. It was that special touch we wanted and we absolutely got it!

    How long does each caricature take?
    4-5 minutes per person.

    How many people can you draw in one hour?
    10-12 people per hour.

    Can you draw everyone at my event?
    Yes, if you hire me for the correct time span! Remember, not everyone will want to be drawn and some will be happy to watch others being drawn.

    Do you do colour caricatures?
    I usually only do black and white caricatures as colour drawings require more time. If you want only colour caricatures you will need to consider that I can draw 6-8 per hour and hire me for the appropriate length of time.

    What if someone doesn't like their caricature?
    If someone is unhappy with their caricature (very rare!) I can redraw their picture - I aim to please! However, if there is a queue of people waiting they will have to rejoin the queue or return at a quieter period.

    How far can you travel for an event?
    I can travel to most locations in the UK. However, I am based in Glasgow and Newcastle Upon Tyne, please see my prices for guidance.

    Can you draw children?
    Yes, no problem.

    Do you do customised and pre-drawn caricatures as well as live work?
    Yes, I can draw anything you like!

    What will you wear to my event?
    Wedding / formal occasion - suit no tie. Summer fair / carnival - smart casual.
