Caricaturist to hire in London
Corporate Cartoonist in London
David is one of the top caricaturists around. Fab, Fast and Fun Caricatures in 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. Conversation piece! Here’s a quick caricature of Uncle Albert in Only Fools and Horses played by Buster Merryfield. Albert is best known for his hobby of falling down pub cellars and his unprompted wartime stories, in the navy. In real life Buster did actually serve in WW2 and only turned to professional acting at the age of 57.
Dear Uncle Albert
Buster sadly died of a brain tumour in 1999. Only fools and horses remains one of the most loved and quintessentially British shows of all time. The last episode of featuring Albert called ‘time on our hands’ was the episode in which they finally become millionaire’s as the old pocket watch in the garage ended up being a priceless antique. That episode attracted a television audience of 24.3 million which was probably a record!
Before its time
Although the main characters are white working class and cockney, I think it was a show that embraced the multi-cultural London and that was back in 1980’s. A great irony now is that if Del boy who’s catchphrase was ‘next year I’ll be a millionaire’ had bought his council flat, with the garage lock up and kept his Ford Capri car and now collectable Robin Reliant, in 2018 these assets would have been a million. Peckham is now a very desirable and trendy London neighbourhood.
