I'm Mr Sketchum, the London-based caricaturist & entertainer. I get hired to do fast, fun'n'free caricatures at parties, weddings and corporate events.

Guests gamely join in as subjects, sardonic critics, and as enthralled witnesses to the likenesses coming together, and before they know it are given unique party gifts - which they all just played a big part in creating simply by being there and having a giggle.

Mix'n'mingling during drinks, "table-hopping" (not literally) over dinners, as well as sometimes working "stall-format" from one spot, I can work in practically any set of circumstances.

"Not bad! You should really think about doing it for a living!!"

"That's the best cara...cari..caraciktcha I've ever had! Out of all the caracikitchas I've ever ever had!"
A beaming Jamie Redknapp, Wentworth Golf Club

I can never quite predict what an event will be like - some can be verging on the surreal! Voilà Monsieur Sketchum (below) in his French "ensemble" (outfit), at a 'fairytale' wedding at Dick Strawbridge & Angel Adorée's château in France. Click here for un tout petit peu more

A couple of months earlier I was asked to kit myself out as a "Belgian east London corporate caricature artist hipster" (!), and appear in a TV ad sketching Paul Gascoigne ("Gazza"!) on top of a moving double-decker bus while being interviewed about World Cup football results (!?!), all the while masquerading as Belgian.

I wind up in some whacky situations, but mostly of course I perform at conventional social gatherings - networking drinks, dinners, business & trade events, a mixed bag of celebrations - and of course weddings. As long as guests are open to having a little fun and I'm given an opportunity to foster a good atmosphere, any setting is alright with me.

As well as giving their verdicts on my cartoon portraits (I don't mind! *he says*), guests rejoice if they've come out well, and rib one-another over who looks a trifle peculiar - it's all part of the fun!

"I put my face in your hands!"

Andrew Logan, jewellery sale, his home

"Everyone loved your "works of art". We were really impressed with the jaw-dropping likenesses, long after you'd gone they were making the rounds to howls of laughter. Hilarious!"

Geoff & Lucy, Brighton

"Thanks for last night Alfie, Kim was touched to be given such a great memento of her ten years with the team at Hilton. Everyone had fun & thought it was a brilliant idea."

Alexandra Dumoulin, Hilton Group

Picking up on fleeting but unique characteristics, I create likenesses that look "more you than you!"* (*apols. to David Low)

 I mainly draw ''singletons", but naturally, at parties couples & close-knit groups often ask to be immortalised together. As long as I can be sure to not get too tied up with one set of guests I'm happy to oblige, especially as this can give them a special thrill.

I draw on heavyweight A4 laser paper, and present each caricature inside a complimentary top'n'side-opening plastic folder.

I can preprint your graphics and/or a message of your choice on my paper (for a one-off fee of £50) ~ to mark the occasion, distinguish a brand, convey the ethos of a campaign, or simply to add a stylish touch.

"Give her a body like Baywatch ~ and a face like Crimewatch!!"

Anonymous (heartily bellowed at me from the other end of the room by a fellow at a Warburtons Bakery event)

"What is it he does again?"

Mr Sketchum's mum

Here are the three types of event that I do caricatures at the most: weddings, parties and corporate events ~

Wedding caricatures go down incredibly well with families. I usually mix'n'mingle during drinks, then wind my way around the wedding breakfast tables, and since I make them laugh so much when things have loosened up I'm always still in high demand.

"Just for a few seconds, could you not flare your nostrils at me?"
Mr Sketchum

CONTACT:  

Big parties allow me to create a buzz by bouncing between the various groups of guests, and smaller gatherings are a treat as I'm amongst friends and colleagues who get on famously anyway - so with me there sketching party caricatures, they flip their wigs!

       

      CORPORATE      

As well as laughter - the best icebreaker of all - as London corporate-caricature-artist-cum-marketing-tool, Mr Sketchum provides you with personalised original artwork (preprinted with your branding if required), and helps you create corporate events - whatever and wherever they may be - which provide an engaging & interactive activity, whilst simultaneously generating awareness of your organisation.
