Renowned Sheffield illustrator Richard will gently ridicule you and your guests with quick pencil sketches, ready to take away as lasting mementos of your event. Richard’s caricatures are very funny, but not overly offensive, so give your family, friends and guests a party to remember with the latest in live entertainment. Adults will be enthralled, while children will be amazed at seeing a genuine piece of art being created by right in front of their eyes.

Richard was a graphic designer for over 25 years before becoming a full time freelance cartoonist and illustrator, working for a variety of companies and charities in the public and private sectors. 

Richard the caricaturist will provide a collection of unique mementos ready for your guests to take away. Though based in Yorkshire, Richard is happy to travel anywhere and provide you with great entertainment.
