Corporate doesn't mean staid or stuffy - guests and delegates have a sense of humour even if they do tend to dress conventionally and have a businesslike manner. At corporate events the gloves often come off and the characters in any given group or team behave like cheeky children in a naughty-but-nice mood.

There are also the less extrovert but nonetheless quietly wise old birds who have an eagle eye and appreciate a well-rendered drawing. I definitely enjoy corporate work because I meet reasonably intelligent subjects and guests (who tend to be relatively sober!) in comparatively civilised settings.

By helping you create memorable events which simultaneously entertain clients, reflect well on your organisation, and generate awareness of what your company has to offer, I represent an effective marketing tool. My persona as strolling portraitist is self-possessed and personable - perfect for relaxed business-focussed gatherings - meaning happy clients and new contacts for you.

Over the years I've been commissioned to provide London corporate entertainment by many prestigious blue-chip clients, including ~

~ Trade Shows ~

Trade shows are competitive environments, and you need something eye-catching to attract footfall towards your exhibition stand or you may spend a long time just stood there looking lonely ~ I act as a bridge between potential clients and your sales staff.

The way it tends to work is visitors gladly accept a complimentary (as in free, not necessarily flattering) caricature of themselves, and whilst it's being sketched are receptive to shop talk, enabling you to communicate key aspects of what you have to offer. If there is no traffic near your pitch, I simply walk to where there is some and bring people back to be sketched at your stand.


Visitors sometimes excitedly run around collecting any & every freebie in sight. However unlike a glass of Champagne or a stress ball with your logo on it, a caricature has lasting impact, is personal to the recipient, will be shown to friends and colleagues, and contains the advantage of keeping the visitor at the stand whilst the sketch is being drawn.


I can pre-print/brand any logo and/or tagline on each sheet of card I draw on, meaning all those who see the sketch will gain awareness of your product or service ~ this echoes your corporate identity and underlines a message ~ ideal for leaving that lasting impression.

*Please note that I am also able to embed subliminal messages within my drawings ;0)
