Here are my hire prices. All I ask is a chance to prove money can't make me happy. I'm practically the only caricaturist for hire in the UK to have set fees published up on their own site and I have no real idea why! I find this way reassuringly straightforward.

Fees beginning with "From: £..." on agency 'starting price comparison' websites are generally pitched lower than the going rate so as to steer you towards the numerous novices & random fruitcakes that inhabit them. It's a hit-or-miss business.

Genuine upfront prices along with gazillions of examples of on-the-spot sketches on a website made by the caricaturist in question mean you can rest assured that what you see here is exactly what you get.

I'm based in Dalston ("Dullston") in east London and use public transport. If your venue is in central London or near me there's no charge, if not I'll point the travel cost out when I quote.

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

> There's no VAT on top.

> Preprinting your graphics/logos and/or a message adds £50.

> I'm often most in demand just as I have to leave! Provided I haven't got previous commitments, for £50 per half-hour I can usually stay on.

Drinks, dinner or wedding bookings last anywhere from two to five hours (four is good), although many corporate & public events can last throughout the day, which is absolutely fine by me. I can go on forever so the longer the better!

According to the 'time-money ratio' thing, the longer I'm hired for the better the deal it works out at for clients.

I sketch on smooth and thick A4 paper/card, and the sketches always go into splash-proof plastic folders, and...

..I can preprint branding/logos/graphics and/or messages onto the paper, providing an example for you to check before I go to print, making sure it'll look exactly as you want it. This service costs £50.

Couples & close-knit groups often naturally adore being immortalised together - as long as I'm not going to be tied up too long with one set of guests, I'm always pleased to be able to oblige.

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.

All that's then left for us to do is hold tight until a week or so before the event, when we can get in touch with each other to check things are on track - and we're all set!

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

Thanks - I'll be in touch
