On the spot Caricatures


On the spot Caricatures

- Devon and Cornwall's Caricaturist!

As well as being highly entertaining, caricatures drawn as close up, on the spot entertainment by award winning caricaturist Luke Warm at your event in Devon, Cornwall, Somerset or Dorset are great mementos. Each one is signed and dated with the location of the event and if you ask nicely, he can even draw them on your own letterhead... so you'll see your corporate memento framed next time you visit your client's office!

Award winning caricaturist Luke Warm - who's just won the 2017 Best Entertainment Award at the South West Wedding Awards - normally starts by working standing, mingling with your guests close up and drawing one person at a time in permanent felt tip on A4 card.  While he's drawing one person there are always 4 or 5 others watching and being entertained - so it's a great way to break the ice!  Each drawing takes about 5 minutes - check out this video on YouTube to see just how fast he really is!

Later on he usually moves to a small informal caricature studio area he's set up in advance with chairs, lights and banners to draw couples and small groups on A3 card.  There are some recent examples on his Instagram page.

In a typical booking of 2-3 hours for a wedding or party he will caricature 25-35 guests.  At the other end of the scale he's often asked to draw for 6-8 hours at a trade show or exhibition and over this time can create 60-80 caricatures!  Most of his work is in the westcountry - Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and Dorset - but he's happy to travel further if required.

Luke's started drawing close up and on the spot in 1993 and since then he's entertained at almost every kind of event - typical functions include the wedding reception, office party, birthday party, leaving party, retirement party, Christmas party, conference, trade show, dinner, ball, school prom, barbeque, corporate event, product launch, trade show, exhibition, seminar, workshop, military mess ball, on board trains, river cruises and even Caribbean cruises!


Luke Warm is based in North Devon so most of his on the spot work is in the West Country:
