Astonishingly, in the past twenty years I've been booked to perform at a staggering over two thousand five hundred special events all across

Old Blighty - I'm no stranger to county-to-county...staggering...!

Greetings and welcome! I'm the London caricaturist known as Mr Sketchum. My 'ordinary' name is Alfie Deliss - but please, you can call me Mr Sketchum! I get hired to sketch fast, fun & free caricatures "live" at private parties (including Christmas parties :), corporate events, weddings and every imaginable sort of gathering in London and all across the UK.

LONDON CARICATURIST MR.SKETCHUM

MORE YOU THAN YOU!

I can adapt to practically any setting - working walkabout/close-up/mix'n'mingling, "table-hopping" (obviously literally) over dinners, as well as able to find a couple of chairs and sketch from any convenient spot "stall format". All I need is a guest with a smile (I can work with fake).

Guests get in on the act as heroic subjects, sardonic kibbitzers, and pop-eyed witnesses to the eye-popping likenesses coming to life, and in no time flat they're presented with deceptively simple, thrilling mini-masterpieces - which they all had a hand in creating!

As well as delivering their verdicts on my work (I don't mind! *he says*), guests love congratulating themselves when they've come out well, yet can also take immense pleasure in fondly ribbing one-another over who looks peculiar, which in turn has the idiosyncratic yet highly admirable effect of making them get on better with one another.

I can never predict where I'll end up - some places can be surreal! Here I am (see below) as Monsieur Sketchum at my fave booking of 2018 (thanks Ian & Anna!). I dress up smart to events, but for this occasion I was given the ok to kit myself out in my French ensemble - a magical wedding at the fairy-tale castle of the enchanting Dick Strawbridge & Angel Adorée in France - literally an Escape to the Château!

At around the same time, I was briefed to kit myself out as a "Belgian east London hipster caricature artist" (!...so it was on with the everyday Shoreditch garçon gear again), in order to be filmed for a section of an insane TV advert where I adopt a Belgian accent throughout an interview about World Cup football fixture results (eh?!), while simultaneously doing a live caricature of Paul Gascoigne - the one-and-only Gazza - on top of a moving double-decker bus!!

I wind up in some eccentric scenarios, but of course I generally perform at customary get-togethers - company dinners & drinks, a mixed bag of private & public festivities - and Xmas parties and weddings galore! As long as guests are up for a little fun and I'm lucky enough to be given the opportunity to foster a good atmosphere, anyplace is fine by me.
