We can't put prices on the web site as all our work is all one-off commissions made to measure and to your specifications so they are all different.
but to give you an idea, a digital image that can be printed any size up to A0 in full colour of one person featuring hobbies, interests, quirks fetishes and foibles will usually come in at £150 - £250.
But if this is outside your budget get in touch and we'll see what we can do. £50 will get a simple caricature of you and your dog for instance. Or you can get a badge of 1 person for just a tenner +p&p.
Mugs with your face and name are £35 + p&p.
Anyway its always worth asking - you might catch us on a quiet day when we're feeling generous. Or we might just like you..... Or feel sorry for you.
The big multiple person commissions are generally priced at a price for the composition - ie laying out and designing the piece - and a price/head for the caricatures to be included. So the more people you have the more it will cost. Simple.
Any other illustration work? Well how much is a piece of cheese? We need an idea of the brief before we can do anything! Just ask.
The party cartooning is, for obvious reasons, rather on hold right now but for future reference we generally charge about £450 for a 3 hour session. Thats drawing as many people as we can in the time. Thats also assuming your event is in the London area. Outside that there may be travel costs in addition.
Also there may be additional costs for the full digital set up with monitor and printer.
We are certainly still taking bookings for any future dates!
Well a few of them are so famous we are supposed to be sworn to secrecy! But between us we have drawn, at parties (not from photos);
Hugh Grant, Chris Evans, Sue Lawley (showing my age now!), David Furnish, Lorraine Chase, Jim Davidson, Jeremy Clarkson, The Marquis of Bath (apparently it is hung alongside the rest of the great portraits at Longleat!), Tony Blair (actually at no 10!), Willy Rushton, Gerald Scarfe, Rolf Harris, Phil Tuffnell, The Hamiltons, The cheeky Girls (we really mix in high places!), JK Rowling and her daughter, Harry Potter's ginger friend and Hermoine, Anton Mossimon, Marco Pierre White, "Baby Bird" (a 90's EMI one hit wonder with 'You are gorgeous.') Most of the Jordanian Royal family, oh, and nearly forgot, HRH The Queen!
Caricatures which have been commissioned for famous people include: 2 ceramic plates for Joan Collins, a plate for Jon Madejski, a Group cartoon of the crew (inc Johnny Depp) for Sweeny Todd, a thankyou card for Peter O'Toole, Kian from Westlife and his girlfriend.
This depends on how the event pans out. Usually, if we can draw without interruptions such as speeches or award giving, then we say approx 12-15 people per hour, each. The iPad ones are slightly slower so 10-12 more likely.
This is a ball park figure and really does depend on what else is going on. If people are queuing up for their caricature we can get a few more done, but when we are walking around tables it can be slightly slower. We try to get as accurate and comical picture drawn so we don't like to jeapordise quality for quantity although we like to pride ourselves as two of the fastest on the circuit.
Anywhere! We have been across the globe caricaturing as far flung places as Dubai, Jordon, Antigua, New York, San Francisco, all over Europe, The Channel Islands...even Birmingham, Harrogate, Carlisle and Edinburgh to name a few. Generally we are based in London but we are more than happy to go anywhere.
No we don't mind. A quick glance at the web site should prove we love dressing up. "I was a bit taken aback one time however, when working at the film premiere for Superbad, they showed me my outfit. It was nothing more than a dark blue leotard with police badge accessories and a police cap. Luckily I only had to hold my stomach in for an hour!" (Sheba)
Well, I usually say for about 3 minutes people like us!
Yes, that's why we had to marry each other. Every partner we had went off us as soon as we drew them.
In general we try to make the caricatures as entertaining as possible. We're not out to upset anyone, just make you laugh! It's not our fault if people have funny faces!
