booked Caractacus for their event in Buckinghamshire April 2023

“Charlie came to join my birthday celebrations at beautiful Hartwell House. He stayed for a couple of hours and blended into the crowd, producing amusing and memorable sketches for us to take away as keepsakes of a very special evening. I'd highly recommend Charlie (Caractacus). Pleasant, professional and an ideal caricaturist.”

Brilliantly talented and REALLY hard-working!

booked Caractacus for their event in Gloucestershire September 2022

“Caractacus was spot-on. Worked the room with this slightly unusual entertainment and pleased everyone. His quirky take on people's features suited the evening perfectly. I was doing other stuff, but he hardly drew breath for two hours straight! Highly Recommended.”

An excellent choice for entertaining your guests

booked Caractacus for their Wedding in Bristol July 2022

“There is always that down time in a wedding when guests can be bored and restless. Caractacus kept our guests entertained and amused with his easy going manner and excellent artist skills. I can honestly say no one felt offended by their final artwork and all guests left with their drawing as a gift to remember the day.”

Was the perfect touch to a works Christmas party

Full Biography

* Professional caricaturist with almost 20 years experience!
* Creating between 10-15 caricatures an hour,
* Previous clients include Vodafone, Natwest, BMW, Orange, Nokia and more!
* Available in the South, Midlands and Wales.

With almost 20 years experience of drawing on the spot caricatures, Caractacus is a seasoned professional who entertains at all kinds of events from children's parties to weddings and  black tie dinners - you name it, he has probably done it! His crisp style is a delight to watch and he invariably attracts a crowd. The hoots of laughter on the reveal is something everyone can share!

Your Event
Caractacus is quick; seated, standing or strolling about, he will create between 10 and 15 likenesses an hour (sometimes more) depending on circumstances and requirements. He will be pleased to discuss how best to tailor his performance to your needs and can offer pre-printed logos, headers or motifs etc.

Caractacus can depict in jokes and hobbies on request or, if quantity is at a premium, he can draw just head and shoulder sketches.

Caractacus produces great likenesses; despite plenty of comical distortion, there is rarely any doubt as to who each caricature depicts. Indeed it has been said that some of his drawings are more like the subject than the original!

Previous Clients
With a list of previous clients including Vodafone, Nokia, Orange, Samsung, Nat West Bank, Barnardos, Hewlett Packard and BMW as well as hundreds of private individuals, Caractacus has caricatured literally thousands of people over the years and always looks forward meeting more.

“Caractacus was a star at our wedding. Arrived on time and worked the room really well. The caricatures were brilliant and very funny! He even stayed a bit later than he should have to try and make sure everyone had had the opportunity to get their memento of the day done. He was a really nice guy to deal with as well. Highly recommended!”
- Andrew Langley, Trowbridge.

“We just wanted to say a big thank you for doing a great job at our wedding. All of our guests absolutely loved your caricatures and you brought a smile to many of our guests. We particularly liked the drawing you did of us, it definitely has a striking but humorous resemblance! We would not hesitate to recommend you to our friends and family.”
- Megan Farmer, Plymouth.

“Caractacus attended our Charity Launch as part of National Carers Week.
The theme of the week was "The true face of Carers" and we thought capturing peoples faces in caricature form might be fun. 154 people attended and Caractacus was kept extremely busy with queues forming as everyone wanted their own caricature done. He was very professional and people were extremely pleased with their drawings. It provided a fun element to the day which everyone enjoyed immensely. We would certainly recommend Caractacus to anyone who wants something a little different for the day.”

- Debbie Martindale, Carer support Wiltshire.

“Our company attended an exhibition at Birmingham NEC at which Caractacus was our resident caricaturist for 2 days. He was professional at all times and engaged with our customers, ensuring they felt at ease. He has an excellent eye and picked out his subjects' features in less than a minute. Thanks to Caractacus our stand soon became the talk of the exhibition.”
- Nicola Furniss, Sheffield.
