booked MGI Live Caricature for their Wedding in Northumberland May 2022

“We booked Mike to help welcome the evening guests to our wedding and he was amazing!! He’s a great guy who is so friendly and talks to everyone, his drawings were amazing and really accurate, he supplies a clear ziplock bag with each drawing he does so they don’t get damaged, he really draws a crowd in and gets people laughing and mingling together which is great! His communication is also great, quick responses to emails and on the day he checks in with you before he starts to make sure nothing has changed. I asked Mike to decide where would be best for him to set up and he really did pick a great place, it was central enough so everyone could see him from a distance, plenty of room around him so people could stand close by to watch, it was just perfect! I would highly recommend Mike to anyone, he really was the most perfect addition to our day!”

So pleased I had Mike at my party.

Live Caricaturist

Full Biography

MGI Live Caricature is one of the UK’s finest and most in-demand live caricaturists, with an immensely confident, clean style and rare ability to capture spookily accurate likenesses! Combine this with a friendly, genuine personality and easy ability to converse with people from all walks of life, and you have an unbeatable entertainment choice that will have guests talking for years to come.

Working from a traditional easel with nothing but black and grey marker pens (i.e. “the old-fashioned way”) clients and guests regularly tell the artist how magical it is to see a blank sheet of paper explode into life with hilarious, perfectly exaggerated likenesses of their friends, loved ones and colleagues, and at such speed: each subject is usually captured in five minutes or less!

MGI Live Caricature has been a professional caricaturist and humorous illustrator for over twenty years. His career so far has seen him create thousands of caricatures at events all over the UK and beyond, win international awards for exaggerated likeness, and work as the acclaimed character designer behind ITV’s ‘Newzoids’. He has also performed caricatures aboard Celebrity Cruises in Scandinavia and the Mediterranean, and has had illustrations personally commissioned by Jack Whitehall and the BRIT Awards.
