Wedding Sign-in Board - Digital File Only

This one was done at the last minute for a client who didn't have time to wait for me to matt and post the caricature. Instead, I simply did the drawing and scanned it into my laptop before emailing the file for the client to print out and matt himself.

Attitude is Everything

I'm sure I'm not alone moaning about life sometimes; my cars broken, I'm skint, fat and my artwork sucks, but when you draw someone like John, who smiled and laughed while I drew him despite being disabled and unable to talk, it makes you appreciate all that you have. Welly in a philosophical mood.

Birthday Caricature

Done for a friend and Bruce Willis lookalike on his birthday. Why not commission a caricature from Welly today for a unique gift idea?

Me by Mary

This is a caricature done of me by the very brave Mary of This Insurance, drawn during a quiet period on their exhibition stand. About as good as one of my insurance quotes ;-)

BIBA Conference, Manchester

Yesterday and today, I've been working on a stand with This Insurance at the Manchester Conference Centre. Last time I was there I was 20, it was called the GMEX and Simply Red were in concert!

Had a great couple of days and bumped into my fellow caricature artist and good mate, Mike Carlon who was working at the same event.

Free Caricature Winner

This is the free caricature I did for the winner of my 100 Facebook LIKE competition on my fan page. The winner wanted one done of his pregnant wife, Stefani Garcia, and I sent it just in time for mother's day :-)

Dawn and Chris's Wedding

My first time working at The Imperial Hotel, Blackpool with a great bunch of people who were up for a laugh.

Asian Wedding, Manchester

My first Asian wedding gig in Manchester last night and I was made to draw this beautiful couple on stage with my drawing board only in front of 500+ people whilst they greeted their guests and had their photos taken.

This was the hardest caricature I have ever done under that amount of pressure apart from my first ever live caricature in front of nobody when my pen was shaking so much I could barely hold it. It's hard to believe how far I have come over the last 12 months but I know I still have a lot of room for growth.

May Bank Holiday Weekend

A busy Bank Holiday weekend coming up! Two wedding gigs and a new pitch outside The New Station Cafe, St. Annes Promenade (next to the swimming baths). Strangely enough, I've already drawn this exact location! Spooky.

Busking on St Annes Promenade yesterday could of gone better as the only thing I got was hyperthermia. I'll try again today wearing a few more layers.

Caricature Cake

I'm hoping this caricature will be transferred onto a cake in an experiment I've been wanting to try for ages. Sort of combining my 2 passions into one! Watch this space! Unless I eat it first.

Digital Cartoons

Playing around again in Painter 12 trying to get to grips with drawing in digital.

The "fish poo" cartoon is the consequence of an unfortunate incident with my cat who had a problem in the bottom area. I'll leave it at that but it just goes to show, inspiration can be found in the strangest of places.

The "bad carbs" ginger bread cartoon is just a random rebellion against misleading nutritional diet information.
