Over the past twenty years I've sketched at a staggering over two thousand parties, weddings and corporate events all across Old Blighty - I'm no stranger to county-to-county...staggering. Mix'n'mingling, "table-hopping" around dinners, as well as able to find a couple of chairs and work from one spot, I'll adapt to practically any setting - all I need is a guest with a smile (and I can work with fake).


Guests enjoy delivering 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, 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 receive original artwork unique to them and that moment - which everyone helped to make happen.

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 ensemble for the occasion - a wedding at an enchanted castle hosted by the endearing Dick Strawbridge & his beguiling muse (that's french for missus), 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!) and was filmed for a section of an insane TV ad where I adopted 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.
