I give my sketches away absolutely free of charge. I have to. It's hard enough drawing someone you've never met before without having to get money out of them as well.
Blurring a line between realism and farce, my sketches range from laugh-out-loud caricatures, to mischievous little lifelike parodies, to appealing thumbnail portraits. At most events depending on the subject and the situation I do a combination of the three, deciding as I go along which approach is correct.
The only props I have are paper & pens, meaning I can circulate freely, adapting to surroundings ~ be it mingling wi ... th guests over refreshments, sketching table to table during dinners, or finding a suitable spot where guests come to me.
I can confirm that in my sketches it's the ladies who tend to come out with appeal, and the poor gentlemen often appear...naturally amusing.
I would never, ever depict subjects along the lines of a vulgar "pub one-liner" (oh go on then, since you're asking nicely). I may be an exception that confirms the rule, but it's a common misconception that doing "live" caricatures involves appealing to the lowest common denominator: cheesy drawings!
If you need more than one caricaturist I can source friendly and experienced professional colleagues I have worked with before. Don't expect too many of us - good live caricaturists are rare as hen's teeth in a sea of hacks. Like limbo dancers, we're thin on the ground.
