Spot On Tips – SURPRISE CARICATURIST!?

Having a party, maybe a wedding reception and decided to hire a caricaturist to entertain guests? Have you spent weeks trawling the internet, contacting artists for examples , prices and references until you decided Spot On George was the best caricaturist for the job? An excellent choice! Why oh why therefore would you keep this a secret or a surprise?

Please, please never keep your entertainment as a surprise for guests, as many will never have met a close up entertainer such as a Magician or Caricaturist and many will turn up, glum faced and ignore the nice gents in suits walking around trying to get their attention. For an entertainer, walking into a cold room full of people who ignore them is soul destroying and it wastes at least the first hour, as I have to explain who I am and what I am doing.

In 23 years of entertaining at functions, the only ones that have failed have been when I was kept secret – at one wedding the Groom even manhandled me towards the door to eject me!!

Hire the BEST caricaturist – Brad Pitt’s caricaturist, Amanda Holden’s caricaturist, Paul O’Grady’s caricaturist, Ant & Dec’s caricaturist, TV Times’ caricaturist and the ONLY live caricaturist in GQ – THEN BOAST ABOUT IT, TELL EVERYONE AND BUILD UP A BUZZZZZZZ!!

Trust me, Spot On George is worth the buzz and it will last for months!

Spot On Tips – Marquees

Having a party, maybe a wedding reception and decided the best venue is a marquee? Hiring a caricaturist too? When booking/hiring a marquee you should always consider the following factors for a successful party.

  • Summer – Does your marquee have air-con? A large white closed sided tent can be stifling in the hot sun, for guests and performers alike.
  • Winter – Does your marquee have lighting? Long winter nights often plunge a marquee into darkness early on and lighting can be essential for diners and performers alike. Perhaps consider independently lit areas such as the bar and dancefloor.
  • Floors – Does your marquee have a false floor, is it steady or wobbly? Wet weather can undermine false floors and create walking/working hazards for guests and artists alike.
  • Weather – Is your marquee robust enough for the British weather? Strong winds, heavy rain and brilliant sunshine are all magnified once inside a marquee and can interrupt proceedings.

Caricaturists need good lighting and a steady footing to draw their walkabout caricatures and often there is no power supply for extra lighting in a marquee, so consider the above points before booking your marquee or your caricaturist.

Good luck with your event and remember to only hire the best caricaturist for your guests!

Ricoh’s favourite golf caricaturist draws the crowds

Ricoh’s favourite golf caricaturist draws the crowds

Last weekend I attended one of my more regular annual events for a favourite client; Ricoh Women’s British Open golf tournament at the Royal Birkdale GC in Southport. The sun was shining, the grass was green and the panteloons were pink and yellow on the tees. I was stationed in the clubhouse to draw digital caricatures on a new Ricoh digital whitboard. I also drew a few caricatures on my clipboard for those who wanted a hard copy to take away. This was my first time working on this large format digital drawing screen, but the caricatures flowed and I soon got the hang of it. Goes to show what a flexible, adaptable bunch caricaturists are!
