Q: How long does each Caricature take and what size are they?
A: Just a few minutes. I work at A4 size using a black crayon which enables me to produce a lively image.
Q: How many do you do in an hour?
A: Between 10 – 12 per hour.
Q: Do the guests get to keep them?
A: Of course.
Q: Won’t the Caricatures get damaged during the course of the day?
A: No, I put each Caricature into an individual plastic sleeve for safe keeping.
Q: Do you do couples?
A: Certainly. More than two people per A4 page becomes a little crowded though.
Q: How many hours do you work?
A: Usually 2 – 3 hours but I’ve certainly been at events all day – and night!
Q: Do you do colour Caricatures?
A: Yes, when working from photos in my studio but working ‘Live’ at events I do black and white Caricatures – it’s quicker and that way I get more guests drawn.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Unlike most caricaturists I would describe my style as ‘complimentary’. I prefer doing Glamorous pictures.
Q: Have you ever offended anyone?!
A: No. Men always have more hair than I can see and the women always look 10 years younger….
Q: Is this what you do full time?
A: It’s one of the many creative hats I wear. I’m also busy working as a freelance Storyboard Artist, Concept Visualiser and Illustrator. Take a look at http://www.sr-illustration.com
Q: How much do you charge?
A: Please get in touch, let me know what you’d like and I’ll get back to you with a comprehensive quote.
Q: Where are you based and how far would you travel?
A: I’m now living in the south of France near Montpellier. I’m happy traveling a few hours in any direction…by road or air. I have flown back to England for events.
Q: Would there be extra charges for travel?
A: If large distances and overnight accommodation are involved, an extra charge will need to be worked out.
Q: How did you get into working as a Caricaturist?
A: I was doing Caricatures at an Advertising Agency party for fun, when someone asked me for a business card. I realized there was money to be made!
