Waxy O'Connors

Brilliant evening last week 3 November event drawing in Soho at Waxy O'Connor's 21st Birthday party. Fabulous Irish pub ,absolutely packed mostly with good looking Irish people with mad hair. Printed up the paper with company logo before hand. Worked really well as the corporate branding looked like a badge. Drew a caricature  every 4 minutes or so. Love drawing at parties near Xmas.  Will be doing a lot more cartoons as we come to Christmas party season.

A great way to thank your staff at the Office Party. A wonderful gift at your event.

Swig and Vittle

22nd of October.Invited to draw at the opening the Swig and Vittle .The latest bar and restaurant in my favourite road,Camden Road in Tunbridge Wells. Drawing quick caricatures of punters and customers at the new venue. Had a huge queue all night for portraits.A great souvenir for customers and a cool way to launch the party and the new business.

Two friends drawn together but on separate bits of paper. They'll scan them and make one drawing.

Autumn Almanac

I have been very slack about jeeping a blog on this new.well newish website. It's been a productive summer since I started. I suppose that's why there's been no blog. This is the largest number of caricatures I have ever done in one drawing. 38 portraits for an Officer's Mess. Not too much  of a mess hopefully. I like to be punctual,if not a bit early for any job I'm doing. I rather over did it in August. I turned up for a wedding at the Clarendon Royal Hotel Gravesend. Turned out I was early.A year early.Oh well. it was a lovely evening for a drive.See you next year Amy.

Life's a beach

 

Oh to be in summer now that England's here. Drove to Whitstable Saturday evening to draw at a Wedding at the Marine Hotel, Tankerton Beach. Absolutely beautiful spot. When I arrived many of the guests were enjoying the evening sunshine on the grassy parade above the beach.

Wonderful wedding, very friendly people.Did loads of drawings. Lost count but 50 + people.

Only fly in the ice cream was that i left my ipad behind. Fortunately the lovely Jo from the Marine Hotel rang to say it was in the Hotel safe.

Congratulations Dan and Georgina. Enjoy your honeymoon in Italy.
