Unlike classical caricature, my portraits reveal a pleasant appearance, not the ugliness and grotesque. The constant feedback I receive is: "I'm more beautiful in your drawing than in reality." Through my art, I try to reveal human beauty in a playful way. My drawings generate moments of joy and incorporate the emotion and energy of the moment.
I'm very proud to get the highest rating from my clients.
My style of drawing makes me very popular and attractive at the events where I'm invited as I always have people waiting for a drawing. I'm pleased and humbled to find out my art brings moments of joy and positive energy in people life.
The live caricature is a natural process and the maximum speed is acquired after the first few drawings. Depending on the complexity, the quickest drawings can take less than 3! minutes (kids). The average is 10 drawings/hour.
Individual portraits on A4 size (120gsm paper) is the best choice for the clarity of details and speed. The portraits, ready to be framed, are delivered to your guests for free protected in transparent folders. I'm happy to draw multiple portraits, couples or a maximum of three portraits (occasionally) on the same sheet, as well, but compositions are more complex and can be slightly slower.
For a successful live cartoon event, it is good to have:
1. Decent lighting, in the drawing area, indoors. A place close to a window or a source of light is best. Indoor its a better environment for live caricature usually, not always, as ar fewer factors who interfere with the drawing process (wind, powerful sun, cold, humidity). 2. Two chairs normal size (three if I have to draw couples). 3. A small table is helpful for my tools and to present some drawings for your guests to know what to expect. 4. Shaded area, outdoor. Sunlight can be very powerful and its reflection on paper makes the drawing process very challenging or impossible.
Quality of the line
Made with permanent markers (deep black), the artworks are defined by a clear, powerful line which generates a high black & white contrast. Unlike the drawings done in pencils or other media, are resistant (doesn't blend) and have a clean, professional look with no under layers.
Working with children
Kids are amazing models for cartoons. They understand and take my work very seriously. :) I have developed a poignant way of drawing children and have received wonderful feedback. For more on this, please check my gallery and the certified review on Poptop UK Event Booking by Andrew Shires @ Polka Theatre - children’s theatre in Wimbledon. I know I'm doing something special when they don't leave without telling me: "I want to draw like you!".
Why I draw mostly from sitting
Even if I enjoy drawing in any condition, seated or standing, my aim is to deliver only the best portraits and live art experiences to your guests. The best and most effective way of doing live caricature, the quality of drawings and speed, is from sitting. Walking around is not the best way of doing live caricature and is rarely necessary.
