“Mike was nothing short of brilliant. He worked patiently through the queue of people wanting a portrait and was so popular that some people missed out......not through any fault of Mike. The caricatures were brilliant and we would have no hesitation of recommending Mike on to friends or family.”

“Hi Mike, Just wanted to thank you SOOOO much for your brilliant work on Saturday – you really helped to make our day special and memorable for all our guests. Apart from being fantastic entertainment, they (and we!) also have your drawings as souvenirs – and are appearing as Facebook profile pictures already! I managed to get through an extremely emotional day to that point without shedding a tear, but cried with laughing at your drawing of our policeman and fireman friends! You seem to have the uncanny knack of sensing when you can emphasise features just that little bit more without causing offence – and you got that one spot on! I know our photographers were also extremely impressed, and I’m sure they will be suggesting you to other couples making wedding plans … I hope it will lead on to many more bookings for you!! Thank you again, Mandy and David xxx ”

“Hi Mike, We are just sitting in Heathrow Airport before we jet off on our honeymoon but we couldn't go away without saying a massive thank you for Friday!!! We had so many compliments about your work and I'm so happy people have those memories to keep forever. You are so unbelievably talented. Our pic is getting framed as soon as we're back. Thanks again, Mrs and Mrs Turner :-) ”

“Hi Mike, I just wanted to say a huge thank you for Friday night!! Michael and I are over the moon with how well the caricatures went down, I think they are on most people's facebook profile pictures at the moment and I've already had loads of people asking me for your details (I figured it was ok to give them out!). You really made the night and I think out of everything it was the best money we spent (ok maybe other than my dress haha). I didn't really think about it before and just figured the caricatures would give people a good laugh but it also enabled couples who didn't really know anyone else at the wedding to start talking to other guests, while watching and laughing the 'victims' being sketched. Thank you soooooo much. Lucy & Michael Garside ”

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.
