Live Caricature Drawing
The lure of the caricature is irresistable, everyone is curious to see how they might look as a cartoon and take even greater delight to see their friends recreated as one too!
Always popular as unique wedding entertainment across Northern Ireland, this fascinating artform is also enjoyed and admired at birthday parties for both children and adults, community & charity events, fun days, festivals and any other occasion that requires original entertainment that’s certain to make the day memorable!
Very little preparation is required to host a caricature session with Louie, all that is required are three chairs and the rest is provided by Louie. Portraits are drawn at A4 or A3 size in permanent black ink and fine oil pastel for shading and a splash of colour. A4 pictures are presented in a clear protective folder and the larger A3 images are given rolled and fastened with an elastic band. Event information such as company logo, branding or celebrants name, date etc, can be included on each image upon request, ask Louie about options when you book.

Caricature Gifts & Pet Portraits
From simple pen and ink caricatures to full colour, digital portraits, Louie loves to hear your ideas and work with you to create the perfect gift, something that is both unique and unusual which celebrates the subject in a light but thoughtful way. All that’s needed are a few sharp photographs of the individual/s or pets that show a good likeness and Louie will offer his suggestions for the piece and get to work but your own ideas and suggestions are encouraged and will help Louie to create an image that better reflects the personality of the subject.
These caricature portrait gifts are available as a digital file for you to use as you wish and are accompanied with printing and framing advice to help you present your commissioned artwork in the best way possible.
In some circumstances and for an extra fee Louie can provide the image printed in a range of sizes on various giftware, please discuss your requirements when you order.
