Paul Raymonde is one of Britain's leading caricaturists with more than 20 years experience. During this period he has contributed drawings to many major publications (Punch, Private Eye, Reader's Digest, Radio Times, Mail on Sunday and the Observer to name but a few). Paul however specialises in on-the-spot caricaturing as a fascinating and unique form of entertainment. He is in great demand at parties, weddings, and all sorts of business functions where he delights his audience by drawing his charming and incisive caricatures of the guests.
Paul works sitting, standing, or circulating amongst the guests sketching them rapidly, both head and body. This mobility means that he can work with equal ease in receptions, at dinner tables or in trade shows and marketing events. He draws in ink and toned markers, which dry instantly onto 250gsm velvet card and presents his drawings to your guests in a smart protective envelope so they can safely take them home.
On average he can produce up to 15 drawings per hour.
Whether it s a special party or a wedding, a corporate function or a promotion, you will want to let your guests have something to remember both you and the occasion. Time permitting, if Paul is able to obtain your name or company logo or any special message that you would like to print, he will prepare your own drawing paper, making each caricature a personalised souvenir of the event.
