About Sam Allen - Caricaturist

Hello I'm Sam and I'm a caricaturist with a !00% positive feedback! I've drawn at over 250 events - having sketched at weddings, corporate events, kid's parties, Christmas parties, outdoor gatherings & birthdays.

Here's why I'll be great for you:
a) I'm used to sketching people & making them look great
b) I'll make your friends, family &colleagues laugh - guaranteed! I'm lightning fast too so I should get round to sketching a fair few of your guests.
c) I'm an easygoing presence and I get on with all ages.

You won't need to provide anything for me and should you wish, I'll draw all of your guests on bespoke headed paper to commemorate the day as a souvenir. This will cost you nothing extra.
Wedding couples - I'll draw you both for free on a large card that can be signed by your wedding guests on the day.
I've attached some examples of my work below to give you an idea.

Typical Clients

As stated above, I get on with everybody and that extends to clients who come from all backgrounds. I'm happy to mingle and sketch whilst chatting. Equally I'm happy sitting in a designated spot and caricaturing whilst sitting. I'll always go with the flow.

I've caricatured at intimate dinner parties where the host asked me to task his guests with sketching their fellow guests then asking me to judge. I've also caricatured at large formal corporate events including Google & the BBC and by contrast, some rowdy Christmas parties.
I've drawn at several schools both primary and secondary, I've drawn the Scots Guards in London & the British Army on several occasions, sketched at Brighton Pride, many hen-do's, open days and at various country fayres. And my feedback has been 100% positive from all of them.

Great Artist

Sam created a brilliant picture of my wife and I for our wedding celebration, during the time we had he managed to get around everyone who wanted a drawing. I was blown away by quality of the pictures. Thanks Sam for making it even more memorable.

A brilliant addition to a great day

Booked Sam for our WedFest. Initially booked two hours but added another hour under Sam’s advice. And a good job we did as people were queuing up to get a drawing, as they where fantastic ! The family drawing that Sam did of us prior to the wedding which we framed and displayed at our ‘WedFest’ captured us all perfectly and was a great addition! Would highly recommend, Sam was great and a perfect addition to any event!
