    Over the past twenty years I've provided entertainment at a staggering over two thousand parties, weddings and corporate events all across Old Blighty - I'm no stranger to county-to-county...staggering...

    Guests like to deliver their "verdicts" on the sketches (I don't mind! *he says*), and congratulating themselves when they've come out well, yet groups also take great pleasure in affectionately ribbing one-another over each other's peculiarities which, perhaps idiosyncratically, allows them get on even better with each other.

     

    Whether it's as the heroic subjects, cheeky kibbitzers, sardonic commentators, or simply as gleeful spectators of the eye-popping likenesses coming to life, guests get in on the act, and in no time flat they're handed original artwork unique to them and that moment - which everyone helped to make happen.

    Mix'n'mingling, "table-hopping" around dinners, as well as able to sketch seated from one spot, I'll adapt to virtually any setting - all I need is a guest with a smile (I can work with fake).

    Some of the situations I end up in border on the surreal. Voilà Monsieur Sketchum (below) at his most-loved booking of 2018 (thanks Ian & Anna!). I dress smartly to events, but got the okay to kit myself out appropriately in my French peasant ensemble paysan for the occasion - a wedding at an enchanted castle hosted by the charming Dick Strawbridge & his beguilingly sweet muse (that's french for missus) and Queen of the Cupcakes, Angel Adorée in France - truly 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!) to be filmed for a section of an insane TV ad where I adopt a Belgian (French) accent while predicting World Cup footie fixture results (eh?!), while simultaneously doing a sketch of Paul Gascoigne - the one-and-only Gazza - on top of a moving double-decker bus!!

    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, any setting is fine by me.
