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.
