Here's the cost to hire this London caricaturist. All I ask for is the chance to prove that money can't make me happy.

I'm virtually the only caricaturist for hire (or entertainer, or entertainment agency) in the UK to have clear set hourly hire rates on their site - I don't know why.

Upfront fixed fees, along with examples of on-the-spot sketches on a site made by the caricaturist in question means that what you see here is exactly what you get.

"Not bad!! Have you thought about doing it for a living?!"

Venues in central London or near me mean there's no travel charge, otherwise I'll let you know when I quote. I'm based in east London (E8) in Dalston ("Dullston") and use public transport.

There's no VAT to add

Times can be adjusted to the half hour - for example 2½ hours is £450

Preprinting graphics/logos and/or a message adds £90

Guests tend to clamour for sketches just as I must stop! If I haven't got previous commitments for £60 per ½ hour I can usually extend the booking.

Choose wisely! Go by the quality of the on-the-spot sketches, and I'd say try to get some kind of an idea of what the person you book is actually like - there's a social aspect to what I do of course - or you risk ending up with a Muppet!

Example fees on agency price-comparison websites beginning with "From: £..." are usually pitched lower than the going rate so as to entice and steer you towards the numerous random fruitcakes that populate them - it's a hit-or-miss business.

According to the 'time-money ratio'-thing, the longer the booking is, the better the deal it is for clients.

Drinks, dinner or wedding bookings usually last two to five hours, although many corporate & public events can go on all day, which is fine by me - I can go on forever so the longer the better.

Sketches are drawn on card (200gsm), and are always presented to guests in clear splash-proof folders.

Preprinting branding/logos/graphics and/or messages onto all of my card/paper - with a proof for you to check before I go to print, ensuring it's perfect - adds £90.

Fees are payable on or a few days before the day of performance (although some corporate clients' terms may vary), by bank transfer, BACS, cheque, cash or PayPal (works with Am Ex).

When we've covered the main points I'll email my booking form along with an invoice to you. Once its been completed and returned, you've secured my services.

We then wait until a week or so before the event, when we can get in touch to check we're on track - and we're set!

Fill in the basic enquiry form below and I'll get back to you as fast as possible (usually very quickly), and you're welcome to email or telephone.
