    “We were delighted with Neil's brilliant caricatures. I am sure he went home with writer's cramp! Everyone wanted to be a subject! Thank you for your help in setting this up for us, we will not hesitate to use his services again if required. Many thanks, Janis.” Janis Ian - Charity event, Victoria Hospice, Kirkcaldy – NHS Fife 24.6.10

    "Neil, the caricatures went down extremely well last Friday evening. In fact Fergus was speechless for once....overcome by emotion and Colin thought that it represented him too well and he has vowed to modify his expressions. Cheers! “ Keith Watson, Terex
