There is nothing worse than a boring party… So make sure your event has the extra sparkle that it needs by having a skilled caricature artist.
A Caricaturist is great entertainment not only for the people being drawn but also full of people watching it makes super spectacle and creates great memories.
It is also very flexible style of entertainment lending itself to any time of day and any venue.
Caricatures are also suitable for any type of function no matter what the occasion but are especially good at weddings where people of all ages get together to share the day and have some fun. Plus the guests get a unique souvenir of the occasion and enjoy more than their fair share of laughter throughout the party.
As you may have guessed, my name is Shawn, and I am a member of the distinguished International Society of Caricature Artists (ISCA). Yes, I’m a Caricaturist!
I am 45 years old, and originally come from Morecambe.
I have worked extensively all over the the country and I’m now based Blackpool, Lancashire.
I have always drawn funny pictures of people, ever since my uncle bought me a book about Caricatures at the age of eleven. I was instantly addicted! From that moment on, I have always drawn for fun.
However, it wasn’t until about four years ago that I began to turn my then hobby, into a profession. Up until then I actually used to earn a living as an entertainer and DJ. Things now have progressed over the last few years.
I feel very lucky to be doing what I do now as I truly love drawing Caricatures, and I have a huge passion for spreading happiness all over the country; happiness that is dished out with each & every Caricature which I draw
Just recently, January 2018, I was a contestant on Take Me Out – you can see my photos below
Thanks so much for Saturday, we had so many compliments from our guests about you, everyone was really chuffed with their portrait (including me & the groom!) all the ones I saw were spot on! We can’t thank you enough!

Thank you for a superb night. Everyone was (and still is!!) talking about your caricatures and what a fantastic idea it was to have a caricaturist. I haven’t forgotten to tell Jim and Glynis that they were your favourites – I think that’ll make Jim’s day. Everyone really enjoyed themselves although if I see another cupcake, it’ll be too soon! Thank you again for a great night.
