Here are my fees - they're the going rate if not competitive. Every event is different, so if there's anything about yours that I might be able to help with just say hi using the comments section in the form, or by email or phone.

Look out for unfeasibly low 'average', 'guide' and 'starting' prices for the caricaturists showcased on "price comparison" websites.

When plumping for a caricaturist, go by the drawings, and perhaps try to get a bit of an idea of what the person you book is like - there's a social aspect to what I do of course - or you risk ending up with a Muppet!

I'm often due to stop when I'm still in high demand - this can break guests' hearts! For 60 per hour I'm usually* happy to extend my performance.

*As long as I can catch the last train home/haven't got something important previously planned/don't have another booking for straight after yours.

Preprinting your graphics and/or a commemorative message onto my paper adds 50.

If the venue is beyond central-ish London I'll probably have to add something (reasonable) for travel, in which case I'll clearly point it out in your quote. I'm based in Dalston, east London (near the City & Angel).

My average booking at a drinks/dinner or wedding reception lasts three to four hours, and things like trade shows and conferences can last all day. To be honest since I enjoy it, the longer the better for me, and acccording to the time-money ratio the longer I'm booked for the better the deal for the client, so it'll all good!

Fees are payable on or a few days before the day of performance (corporate client terms may vary), by bank transfer, BACS, cash, cheque, or PayPal (works with American Express).

Once we're agreed on the main details I'll email my booking form (not the enquiry form below!) to you. When that's been completed, returned and acknowledged, you've secured my services, and all that's then left for us to do is hold tight until we contact each other a week or so before the event, just to check everything's still on track...and we're all set!

Upfront prices, along with plenty of recent live sketches (and pictures of 'orrible old Mr Sketchum) on this DIY website mean you can trust that what you see here is exactly what you get.
