London Caricaturist Hire Prices    

  PARTIES ~ WEDDINGS ~ CORPORATE




Greetings and welcome to my website! I'm Mr Sketchum, I'm a party caricaturist based in London - my 'ordinary' name is Alfie Deliss - but feel free to call me Mr Sketchum! I get hired to do fun & free caricatures at private parties, corporate functions and weddings in London, all over the country, and even beyond.

Guests join in as the subjects, as sardonic commentators, and as enthralled witnesses to the likenesses coming together, and before they know it are given unique gifts, which they all just played a big part in creating - simply by being there and having a giggle.

I'm no stranger to county-to-county trekking - have pens, will travel (as a travelling pen salesman might say). I adapt to venues - I can mix'n'mingle during drinks, table-hop (not literally) around diners, as well as work from one spot - all I need is a guest with a smile (I can work with fake).

Over the past 20 years I've been booked to perform at well over two thousand events, so feel free to pick (what's left of) my brains - you can contact me by using the form, by email or phone. If you require more than one caricaturist, let me know & I'll be able to source experienced colleagues.

"Not bad! You should think about doing it for a living!!"

"That's the best cara...cari..caraciktcha I've ever had! Out of all the caracikitchas I've ever ever had!"
A beaming Jamie Redknapp, Wentworth Golf Club

I can never quite predict what an event will be like - some can be verging on the surreal! Voilà Monsieur Sketchum (below) in his French "ensemble" (outfit), at a 'fairytale' wedding at Dick Strawbridge & Angel Adorée's château in France. Click here for un tout petit peu more

A couple of months earlier I was asked to kit myself out as a "Belgian caricature artist east London hipster" (!), and appear in a TV ad sketching Paul Gascoigne ("Gazza"!) on top of a moving double-decker bus while being interviewed about World Cup football results (!?!), all the while masquerading as Belgian. Click here for more

 

I wind up in some pretty whacky situations, but of course I mostly perform at conventional social gatherings - networking drinks, dinners, business & trade events, a mixed bag of celebrations - and of course weddings. As long as guests are open to having a little fun and I'm given an opportunity to foster a good atmosphere, any surroundings are alright with me.

As well as giving their verdicts on my cartoon portraits (I don't mind! *he says*), guests rejoice if they've come out well, and rib one-another over who looks peculiar.

"I put my face in your hands!"

Andrew Logan, jewellery sale, his home

  

"Everyone loved your "works of art". We were really impressed with the jaw-dropping likenesses, long after you'd gone they were making the rounds to howls of laughter. Hilarious!"

Geoff & Lucy, Brighton

"Thanks for last night Alfie, Kim was touched to be given such a great memento of her ten years with the team at Hilton. Everyone had fun & thought it was a brilliant idea."

Alexandra Dumoulin, Hilton Group

Picking up on fleeting but unique characteristics, I create likenesses that look "more you than you!"* (*apols. to David Low)

 I mainly draw ''singletons", but naturally, at parties couples & close-knit groups often ask to be immortalised together. As long as I can be sure to not get too tied up with one set of guests I'm happy to oblige, especially as this can give them a special thrill.

I draw on heavyweight A4 laser paper, and present each caricature inside a complimentary top'n'side-opening plastic folder.

I preprint your graphics and/or a message of your choice on my paper for a one-off fee of £50 ~ to mark the occasion, distinguish a brand, convey the ethos of a campaign, or simply to add a stylish touch.

"Give her a body like Baywatch ~ and a face like Crimewatch!!"

Anonymous (heartily bellowed at me from the other end of the room by a fellow at a Warburtons Bakery event)

With some subjects anything any caricature artist draws, the real thing is always funnier! Gentlemen unwittingly supply me with raw comedy material, simply by being 'naturally amusing', and I tend to favour ladies by nature, capturing likenesses that are fun but also often quite kind.

"What is it he does again??"

Mr Sketchum's mum

Here are the three types of event that I do caricatures at the most - weddings, parties and corporate events ~

Wedding caricatures go down incredibly well with families. I usually mix'n'mingle during drinks, then wind my way around the wedding breakfast tables, and when things have loosened up I'm in high demand since I make them laugh so much.

"Just for a few seconds, could you not flare your nostrils at me?"
Mr Sketchum

CONTACT:  

Big parties allow me to animate and work the room by bouncing between groups, smaller gatherings are a treat as I'm amongst friends and colleagues who get on famously anyway - so with me there sketching really good fun party caricatures, they flip their wigs!

       

      CORPORATE      

As well as laughter - the best icebreaker of all - at corporate functions I provide personalised original artwork (which can also be preprinted with your branding), and help you to create events which simultaneously provide an engaging, interactive activity whilst generating awareness of your organisation.
