Glad to see my local paper, The Leicester Mercury, picking up on my latest exhibition and giving me a double page spread, together with a front cover for their Weekend supplement. My exhibition is on show as a part of Leicester’s Comedy Festival 2017 and should hang until March, possibly later.
I’m proud to display my latest press release, a three page article in today’s Leicester Mercury. The article focuses on my latest exhibition “Make ‘Em Laugh!” which was compiled to complement the Leicester Comedy Festival, I created caricatures of a dozen British comedy greats. This is the third year runing that my work has been hung at the Y Theatre in Leicester and I look forward to expanding the collection and exhibiting again during next year’s comedy festival.
“On 30th September 2015 luxury brand THOMAS SABO welcomed a host of International footballers and celebrities to the flagship store on London’s South Molton Street to introduce them to the new Fine Jewellery and Love Bridge Collections. Guests included stylish editors and bloggers plus an array of international stars, singers Frankie Bridge and Nina Nesbitt, celebrity chef Tess Ward, nutritionist and best-selling author Rosanna Davison, footballers Matthew Etherington and Simon Davies.
Renowned caricaturist George Williams with his hilarious portraits was another of the amusements organised by THOMAS SABO for the star-studded event: in just a couple of minutes talented George created each of the guest’s caricature as a further memento of a very special night, causing some serious laughing in seeing their faces cartooned with his spot-on sketches.” Shadia Daho (Dubai) www.shadiadaho.co.uk
Thanks Shadia for your kind blog. The event even made the headlines in a recent issue (1401) of HELLO! magazine, where I got a mention by name…

Last week I was in the local Leicester Mercury once again, when I handed over some framed artwork to a competition winner, at my exhibition.
George was featured in his local paper, after they offered his artwork in a competition. George drew local football hero Gary Lineker and the Leicester Mercury held an online raffle to find the lucky winner. The prize was presented at George’s second local exhibition, in the Y Theatre, Leicester.
George’s first full exhibition of caricatures drew some local attention and earned him a full page in the local newspaper. Leicester Mercury ran a full page article, featuring caricatures and photos from George’s exhibition, titled “Spot On @ The Movies”. The exhibition featured a small selection of iconic movie posters, in caricature form, taken from george’s caricature collection which displys George’s passion for both movies and caricatures. The exhibition was held in LCB Depot, then the Y Theatre, as part of Leicester’s Comedy Festival.
