Caricature Reviews

A big thank you to everyone who has sent me these kind caricature reviews!

I enjoy entertaining at a wide range of events. It is even more pleasing to later receive glowing caricature reviews from clients.

The following is a selection from messages I have received after weddings, birthday parties (for young and old), corporate events, fundraisers and after drawing emailed cartoons from photos.

Corporate caricature reviews

We engaged Allan to see if he could do an employee wall for us as caricatures and were absolutely blown away with the results! He was friendly, creative, detailed and an absolute pleasure to deal with. All 38 caricatures were done by photos through emails and unveiled as a surprise to all our staff. It’s definitely created a unique entry into our office, and we couldn’t be happier.
Couldn’t give Allan a higher recommendation.
Daniel – Bray Controls

Thank you for your time last week. It was one of the most cost effective marketing tools we have ever used. With our modest logo, it was a great unique branded souvenir for the delegates to take home. My team is now talking to some of our potential clients that have been normally out of reach.
Once again thank you for your help.

Birthday party caricature reviews

I just wanted to say thank you so much for the great job you did at my 50th birthday party. My family and friends were simply delighted with your drawings and I’ve had so many comments about what a fun, unique element you added to the evening. Not only were the caricatures fabulous but I was impressed by the way you made everyone feel relaxed and comfortable while they were being drawn. My daughter was also very happy that you even drew her dog Zoe and has insisted on having Zoe’s portrait framed.
So many thanks – I would highly recommend your talents to anyone.
Best wishes
