Welcome to Bitter & Twisted


The web site of husband and wife caricaturists Simon and Sheba Cassini

Simon is the Twisted half of the duo. Sheba, naturally, is Bitter.
We live on a little island on the Thames, Eel Pie Island, (famous for hosting a music venue in the 60s where bands including The Rolling Stones, David Bowie and Rod Stewart all cut their teeth) in a quirky little wooden house, the Loveshack, with Burni The Arsonist's Cat for company.

And we have both been full time professional caricaturists for... well... ever! Whatever you want we can probably do. Party and event cartoonists, Caricatures and illustrations for all occasions. We draw anything on everything!
