Caricaturist to hire in Central London
Wedding and Corporate Artist to Entertain in Central London
Fab, Fast and Fun Caricatures in Central London. From table hopping at Weddings, Walkabout Artist at Award Ceremonies to a Event Cartoonist at a 50th birthday blast and loads more. He’ll humour your guests, and capture convincing funny faces in minutes. A conversation piece! Groves Caricatures (best known as Dave) is available for hire at weddings, parties and events in the Central London area. He’s a quick caricature of the Business tycoon, TV personality and now political advisor who is both Sir and now Lord Alan Sugar. He is a proper Londoner who started with humble beginnings and is now a billionaire.
Alan Sugar Caricature
Amstrad was the beginning his largest business venture but now he is best known as being the star of the BBC reality show the Apprentice. The first series was broadcast in 2005 and has broadcast each year ever since. The opening scene of the show is always a sky view seen of The Shard, The Gerkin the Thames and Canary Wharf. I’ve watched most of the series, but I’ve missed a couple but watched most of the best bits over the years. There have been a lot of winners on the show and I’ve watched how the show has developed with the business plans and the 50/50 partnership with Alan Sugar and the £250,000.00 investment in the bank!
I must also mention some of the truly memorable contestants as well. The crazy boasters like Stuart Brand with his long metaphor with a field of ponies, and the classic reply from Sugar that ‘I hear your enthusiasm. Great enthusiasm! ‘A fly’s got enthusiasm but it doesn’t stop head butting the window’. The launch of Katie Hopkins where she would have got to the final but then bailed out and now revels in being controversial on day time TV.
There is the formidable face of Ruth the Badger in the boardroom. Lee Mcqueen and his Dinosaur impression and cheeky wink! The risk manager Lucinda Ledgerwood with her berets and Lord Sugar fired her for being ‘Too Zany’. These are just a few moments I’ve enjoyed. In fact I think its Alan Sugar’s fantastic put downs and one liners being the main reason I keep watching each year.
Another cockney sparrow is the actor and national treasure Barbara Windsor who sadly passed away in December 2020
