It's October, it's been raining quite a bit recently... but there's still Weddings a plenty happening!
On Saturday 18 October 2014 I attended the Wedding of Suzanne and John Ward to caricature their guests. They also commissioned me to caricature them beforehand so people could sign it on the day with their special messages. Below is their caricature...
I wish them all the best for the future, Hugs, Hoorays and Happy Days!
If you're getting married and want a caricature message board fo guests to sign which you can frame and keep forever then get in touch: email@example.com
I've been working on a kids comic for a while now. It started off as a
webcomic but I've now self published (currently on a small press scale) a
collection of the short stories of this comic.So what's this kids comic called? Stan and Tim's Imaginative Adventures is a comic book about two kittens with big imaginations and how they view the world they live in.
What we see as a 'cat tree' they see as a castle
They use bed sheets as caves to explore
Toy string are snakes.
comic is available to buy either at comic conventions I attend or by
contacting me or by visiting the Stan and Tim's Imaginative Adventures blog/website: stanandtim.blogspot.co.uk/p/store.html. So there you go... I don't just do caricatures.

In the spirit of the World Cup... "Eddie Dorrington set up a local boys football team approx 5 years ago
because his son and some of his friends played for for a local team, but he was
frustrated about the way the team was managed. The league was
incredibly competitive. Some boys never ever got to play an official match
because although they showed up to training every week they were not deemed
“good enough” to warrant putting on the pitch on match day.
Eddie felt this was not how a team should be managed and just wanted his
son and his friends to have fun on the pitch, so set up a new team.
The original boys were soon joined by their other friends who were
experiencing the same problems with their local teams.
They have been playing as a team ever since - and it has been a joy
to watch as a parent.
Eddie is a fireman and works shifts and Chris works for a Brewery, but
between them they have always managed to attend the training sessions and
matches and support the kids fully. The team don’t always win but they
have steadily improved and generally had great fun every week.
Eddie and Chris make sure that every lad on the team always get at least
1/2 a match on the pitch, whatever their skill level and whatever the score
is. The kids have really appreciated this.
Eddie and Chris were also presented “Managers of the Month” this
month (May 2014). The kids couldn’t resist taking the mickey as the cup
they got was 7cm in height!
The boys are 16 now and all in the middle of doing their GCSE’s. This
may be the last season they will all be able to play together and the end of
what has been a great time for all involved and the parents and the boys want to
thank these great guys for all the time they have given up, in their very busy
Chris is on the left and Eddy is on the right - well done, chaps!
I was commissioned to do some caricatures for the Hednesford Football Team and staff for an awards evening on 16 May 2014. Some of the caricatures had some reference to what they do when not playing football and others were just them showing their skills on the pitch. Below are the final caricatures.
