CHILDRENS’ PARTIES / CARTOONING AND CARICATURING

It can safely be said that Graeme is ranked amongst the top 10 caricaturists in Sydney. He has drawn thousands of caricatures which adorn the walls of homes, offices, clubs, etc. He can be the life of the part or work quietly in the background - always on time and very professional.

Cartooning workshops for childrens’ parties or any child’s event are catered for. We also offer caricaturing which is our speciality.
The caricatures are more like cartoon style in that they LOOK LIKE the person being drawn and are also drawn with “sensitivity” in mind.
The ears, nose, etc., are not fully accentuated as can be the case in many caricatures (unless requested). Children can be drawn as a fantasy character or animals, whatever they wish. The birthday boy/girl is drawn on A3 size. Halloween childrens’ party of fancy dress - not a problem - we can draw them in their costume.

Graeme is passionate in everything he does and absolutely adores children. He has a clever wit, incredibly creative imagination and is
loads of fun...children love him!

Note: Each standard A4 black and white caricature can take between 3-5 minutes (including some transition time). If you are booking a
caricaturist do not forget to ask them about the transition time between guests, i.e., the time it takes for one person to leave and the other to be ready to be drawn, if each person takes 1 minute for swap over, then 30 people would equal 30 minutes of transition time. Roaming is quicker as the caricaturist has control of time and hops from one to the next in succession. A3 size is also available as is spot colour.

We can accommodate the smallest caricaturing job to the largest. We attend trade shows, exhibitions, congress events and have other caricaturists on our books including those associated with the renowned Australian Cartoonists Assocation.

Another Idea for children’s parties ... Graeme can draw either a group caricature on A2 size of the children attending the party OR he can, together with the help of the children, create a “scene” of any theme. Each child is able to participate by colouring or drawing something.

VISUAL SCRIBING

Graeme is also a Visual Scriber for brain-storming sessions, new product ideas, conferences, meetings, presentations, etc.
This also serves as a “problem-solver” - drawing the key points in the meeting or new designs for products allows the attendees to see any flaws or realise hiccups before they happen. Visual Scribing takes away the “boring moments” of a presentation which surveys reveal is the greatest concern of any Presenter. The audience is captured by the drawings and they remain in their memory longer than words.
