Patrick Court - Caricaturist

This professional, talented and experienced caricature artist is based in the South West. He is flexible, punctual, and able to adapt to the unique character of any party or event!

This experienced professional artist and caricaturist specialises in events and entertainment. 

We live in an age now when, from a very young age, people are increasingly exposed to new and developing technologies, such as tablets/iPads. As a caricaturist with over 6 years of experience in family events, he notice that it is the people who take the keenest interest in my live caricature work – and in particular, it is them who become mesmerised at seeing a whimsical and colourful work of art emerge on a blank screen of an iPad. The entertainment he offers is not only interactive and sustainable; it also introduces all people to the possibilities of new technologies – a prospect which, to them, will always be very attractive!

Live caricature drawing  is a new and unique idea for virtually any event; birthday parties, end-of-school parties, or big family events (weddings, gatherings, anniversaries) with separate entertainment for the young guests. It requires minimal equipment, and so it can be set up speedily anywhere and at any time, whilst not taking up a lot of space. An iPad or a Wacom Cintiq tablet would be connected to a TV screen via USB, so people could observe the caricature-drawing process. They could participate in the creation of black-and-white as well as colour drawings, give the artist ideas for caricature drawings of their friends, and in the end, receive an instant print-out of the final creation from a portable Wifi printer. This being only the skeleton of the idea, he can also offer:

  • A selection of ready-made, customisable ‘bodies’ for the caricatures that victims could pick for themselves – e.g. superheroes, Disney characters, celebrities, football players, animals, and more!

  • A5 format printed caricatures that could be made into ‘avatar necklaces’ or badges, for each victim  to wear for the duration of the party.

Live caricatures  could bring a lot of fun to any event, and have the additional bonus of each person receiving a little gift at the end. It would go hand-in-hand with a photo-booth, face-painting, or other popular entertainment acts! Moreover, it is not confined to an outdoor space, which means it would be ideal for the colder months when most parties are forced to happen indoors.

This Act's Average Star Rating

Just to let you know that Patrick arrived on time for the evening wedding reception at the Bedford Hotel Tavistock, Devon on Saturday 21st July and proved an instant hit. He never stopped drawing the whole time he was there. Everyone was really pleased and said how good he was. He made a real impression and I would definitely recommend him as a brilliant entertainer at any function. We did express our appreciation to him but would ask you to pass on our thanks as he made a real contribution to making our daughter’s wedding a great success.

Christine Cunningham,

Hi Patrick, my husband and I would like to say a massive thank you for attending our wedding on 22/6/13, you were a complete focal point for our guests and everyone adored your drawings, we were amazed at how many guests you got through and also the quality of your drawings!! You made very special keepsakes that will remain hung on our wall for years to come!! You're an extremely talented artist and we would recommend you to anyone having any type of event! Thank you so much

Mr & Mrs Sullivan,

I surprised my son with a 21st birthday party on 10th Feb 2017 and wanted some entertainment that offered something a bit different. I spent a while shopping around for a caricaturist, some were charging in excess of £400 for a couple of hours!! I was a bit sceptical at first due to the price being so reasonable but I needn't have worried at all, he was FANTASTIC! He managed I don't know how many drawings in such a short space of time and the likeness he managed to capture was uncanny, you know exactly who they are by his drawings. I loved that people got to take away a keepsake of my sons 21st, I would definitely use him again and would highly recommend to my friends too. He was also very helpful from beginning to end and happily answered all questions that I had. Thanks for making my sons 21st one to remember! :)
