- Stephen Nicholls, Wedding, Hertfordshire

 

Working with Michael in the run up to the event was straight forward and painless. He was on time and ready to go before we arrived and managed to draw everyone on the boat including the other entertainment we had; even took on a number of drawings from picture. I would definitely recommend him for your next event.

- Dami Phillips, Private Party, London

Michael has worked with Fujifilm on two occasions; October 2017 at EHI Live in Birmingham, and UKRCO 2018 in Liverpool. Before both exhibitions, Michael was extremely proactive in helping us plan and integrate the caricature process into our stand and gave us advice on how best to use his skills and equipment. On stand, he was fantastic with our customers and worked tirelessly to draw as many of them as possible, many of which have since spoken about how much they really enjoyed the experience. Michael is an extremely likeable character, and his drawings are of an outstanding quality. He would be a fantastic addition to any exhibition / wedding / event and is thoroughly recommended!

- Jonathan Lonslow, Trade Show, Birmingham

We booked Mkcaricatures for our annual get together and we were not disappointed. Everything about the day was amazing, the weather, the people and the caricatures were the icing on the cake. Michael managed to get through everyone in just three hours and there were tons of fun and laughter after each drawing. Very professional/ extremely talented and highly recommended.

Michael was very friendly, professional and accommodating to all our guests, even letting me leave my seat for 5 minutes mid-drawing to have a dance with my family!

Michael was an absolute hit with all the guests! He was very charming in talking to people at the function. His work was of A grade quality - 10/10.

Absolutely fantastic, would recommend him in a heart beat. The quality was fantastic and would highly recommend the pre-drawn item.

- Caterina Roman, Wedding, Cambridgeshire

Michael was amazing, we are so glad that he was part of our wedding day. Unfortunately he was slightly delayed due to train issues which were not his fault however, he informed us that he was going to be a little late which wasn't a problem but we really appreciated his communication. We had so many comments from our guests saying how friendly he was and what a good job he had done with their caricatures! He even stayed late to fit in the last few people. Would definitely recommend and use again in the future!

- Verity Foster, Wedding, Northamptonshire

Michael arrived early and stayed late. He was very friendly and professional and his art work was excellent. He made a really good impact with my party guests. Thank you

- Oliver Bazeley, Private Party, Northamptonshire

Everyone loved Michael. As soon as he arrived he had a crowd around him. He was obviously passionate and really enjoyed his work... Great work. Captured everyone perfectly. Highly recommend him.

- Adam Searle, Wedding, Hertfordshire

Michael arrived, on time and smartly dressed. Our celebrations, by this time, were in full swing and Michael began to circulate, introducing himself and drawing caricatures of our guests. During the evening all my wife and I could hear were riots of laughter from the area where Michael was working. During the three hours Michael was with us, he got through a phenomenal amount. We would recommend him. 

- Dave Coltman, Private Party, Kent

Michael and his colleague were brilliant on the evening of our wedding. They were friendly, polite and the caricatures were great. Our wedding guests were very impressed with our surprise only wished we could have booked him for a bit longer as so many people wanted him to sketch them :) 

- Rachel Lewis, Wedding, Bedfordshire

Michael really helped make it a very memorable day indeed. He was part of a wedding proposal, and he played his part superbly. The art and style of Michael's artwork was just perfect, and is now just waiting a perfect frame to match his art work, before we place it pride of place above the fireplace. Could not recommend Michael more highly, and was so impressed, we're trying to work out how we can fly him to Brussels for the wedding! Dream day - thank you.

- Nicholas Bowles, Private Party, London

I cannot recommend Michael highly enough!! Friendly, funny and a great artist!! He was such a hit with our guests!! Great work. Thank you once again.

- Caroline Ford, Wedding, Suffolk

Went down a storm at our event. Pictures were fab and everyone enjoyed it.

- Rachelle Gleed, Private Party, Hertfordshire

I thought Michael was great. He worked the crowd very well without being intrusive, so it worked well. His images were great too. Mine is going in a frame!

- Charlotte - Papillon Event, Private Party, Oxfordshire

Michael is an absolutely gem! A pleasure to have him use his creative flair on our special day.

- Komal Kotecha, Wedding, Hertfordshire

Oh my, what can l say... Michael was an absolute star, his talent as a caricaturist is second to none. He arrived on time with a smile on his face. Once settled to do the sketching he made the guests feel comfortable chatting to them so he had an idea of what to put in the sketch. All my guests were delighted with them and all asked where l had found him. He gave more time than booked for because there were a couple of guests still needing to be sketched, Michael was more than happy to extend his time to do them. As a said earlier... A Star!! I cannot speak highly enough of the whole experience l received from your company and from Michael. I would not hesitate to recommend you at all and Roger (the birthday boy) LOVED it. Thank you once again.

- Michele Leivers, Birthday Party, Cambridgeshire
