Mix and Mingling with caricatures is ideal for weddings, birthday parties, trade shows and corporate gathering but also so much more. Below is a list of events David gets regularly booked for -
Caricaturing at weddings is incredible and can work throughout the day. There are usually two lulls where caricature entertainment can really fit in and one is the interlude between the end of the ceremony and the beginning of the meal, and after the speeches end and often there’s a transformation of the room for the evening reception, whilst additional guests arrive. Please visit Wedding Caricaturist web page which is dedicated to caricatures for wedding receptions. Also since the new legislation of same sex marriages, David has been busy drawing caricatures at same sex wedding receptions.
Award ceremony Caricaturist
From large industry awards like the LABC Awards – celebrating all that’s good in the construction industry to individual small company customer service awards, the format for award ceremonies are often the same. Whereby on arrival there are pre-drinks, then into the meal, followed by the awards, and then sometimes they extend to a party afterwards. Caricature entertainment at Award ceremonies works perfectly with mix and mingling while drawing the guests. David either gives the caricatures straight away or keeps them all to exhibit to take away at the end, also trying hard not to miss the table with the managing director!
Birthday Party Caricaturist
David is pleased that unlike other events, birthday parties are not seasonal and happen all year round! Some crazy parties include private party buses and cocktail canal boat rides, and the conclusion was that they don’t work! But for all other birthday parties its fantastic entertainment and your guests take home with them a unique piece of art work in memory of your birthday party. From ages 1-100 (and more) it works wonders and that’s because everyone is caricaturable.
Company Team Caricatures
Hiring David to caricature the company team is a creative morale booster and a unique prism for management and staff to come together and celebrate the team ethic – plus it’s just a fun and one of David’s favourite events to do. Examples over the last couple of years include giving small workshops in groups with a small 5 minute tutorial ‘about drawing caricatures’ and then with great hilarity allowing staff member to draw each other. David has also drawn staff teams in Holiday Inns, Waitrose stores and engineering industry companies to name a few and then often after the cheers, the caricatures were exhibited in staff rooms, boardrooms, even up stair cases. Sometimes I’m booked as a bonus to mark a tribute to a staff team meeting their targets, a reward scheme idea or even a souvenir for someone’s leaving party. There are also company fun days and away days for caricature fun.
Convention and Exhibition Carcaturist
Caricatures at conventions and exhibitions are an excellent initiative to bring new clientele and delegates to your stand. In 2015 David caricatured for LV at “the Employee Benefit” conference in Kensington and Manchester. LV were promoting their new Pension advice online scheme to HR directors. 4-5 minutes of delegates being drawn was an excellent opportunity to pitch and talk more about the product of LV. Softly hooking the customer in shall we say! Bodies of the caricatures can suit the theme of the exhibition, for example in 2015, American Express put on an event for Holiday Resort owners and Holiday Reps, David was a walk about caricaturist drawing holiday themed caricatures, ski slopes and beaches.
Summer Drinks Party Caricaturist
Mingling and drawing caricatures at summer drink parties is perfectly fitting. From large corporations social summer drinks parties booked at a hotel, to private parties at home for no other reason than it being summer. Drawing caricatures of the guests, in a garden setting makes the event unforgettable.
School Prom Caricaturist
Now that the end of year school prom has become a huge event. Often with stretch limos, prom suits and dresses and often at local hotels – booking a caricaturist has become equally popular. David moves around the tables over the meal time and adding that extra wow- factor for school prom nights.
From the largest multinational company, free bar all expenses paid Christmas bashes to small care home Christmas festive gatherings, all Christmas parties are great for a caricaturist. At department Xmas luncheon’s David will come to the restaurant and meander amongst the table’s drawing caricatures. He likes wearing his Santa Christmas hat!
Wedding Anniversary Caricaturist
David regularly caricatures at wedding anniversary parties, drawing family and friends. Sometimes party goers are informed that David is coming or it is left it as a surprise. For Silver, Pearl and Ruby along with Gold and Diamond anniversaries, David will amuse your dynasty, and provide all generations with laughter-making caricatures.
Freshers Fair Caricaturist
Not to stereotype, but hopefully the thought of being immortalized as a caricature might have enough appeal to get those student to the Fresher’s Fair. At previous fresher fairs, David has pitched amongst the stands and invited students to be drawn. There’s always been a queue!
Asian Wedding Caricaturist
With Muslim Weddings, Hindu Weddings and Sikh Weddings generally being very large events David would find it difficult to caricature 600 individually but David will move around the room and draw a couple of caricatures per table and therefore many guests can share in the fun. This is a good example were a caricaturist and a magician can compliment each other at large weddings.
