What on Earth can you use Caricatures and Cartoons for?

Caricatures from Photos for Gifts

Caricatures from Photos as GiftsIn the old days, only the rich and famous could afford to have portraits painted. Now you can commission something much more fun and, importantly, much more affordable: a caricature drawn from photos.

Simon is a caricaturist who can draw hilarious caricatures of people within five minutes each leaving rooms full of laughter and enjoyment at all types of occasion. Based in London, he will travel anywhere for company parties, corporate entertainment, weddings, birthday parties, product launches, exhibitions and conferences.


Cartoons for Publications and Websites

Cartoons and caricatures can bring a website, blog, book or magazine to life with their colour, humour and instant visual communication of information. Illustrated words are so much more attractive to read than just endless blocks of grey text and cartoon illustrations can often say more than a thousand words!




Cartooning at Artfix

WELL,THE poster says it all. From May 19th to May 25th I will be cartooning live in Soho onto a big board (or two) based on what members of the public say they LOVE about London.

The venue is Artfix, a unique establishment devoted to promoting artists and making art more accessible and affordable.

Earlier this year, I was one of the artists in the ‘Artists’ Battle’ during which two of us draw, paint or even write poetry about, one of the main organisers, Magda Poppy Moursy. My battle was judged to have been a DRAW! That’s when I found out that they offered these free artists’ residencies on a weekly basis and thought that it posed a unique opportunity to exhibit the art of cartooning to the thronging crowds of Soho.

I decided on the format of drawing to public suggestions after a very enjoyable ‘large wall’ booking by Visit California a couple of years ago. Then, myself and fellow cartoonist Royston Robertson were booked to draw the guests’ ‘California Dreams’ ie, what they loved about California. See the photo below of us in front of our wall of cartoons:

At the Artfix event, visitors will be encouraged to photograph their cartoons and share them across social media. In fact, incessant tweeting and Facebooking will be the order of the day to gain maximum coverage of the event. News providers have been contacted so I’m hopeful of some press/media coverage.

There will also be a small space available for saleable cartoon work so I will be collecting together a few originals and prints for mounting and framing and putting up on offer during my residency.

If you’d like to come along, my live cartooning event takes place at Artfix, 22 Peter Street, London W1F 0AJ from Tuesday May 19th to Monday May 25th between the hours of 2.00pm and 5.00pm, except for Sunday when the store is closed.

See you all there!
