What We Do

Drawing board

When Rick is not providing live entertainment, he is sat at his drawing board producing caricatures from photos and cartoon illustration work. He also specialises in group caricatures for the armed forces and corporate clients.

His illustration work includes cartoons for ITN and Channel Four News items as well as cartoons for trade magazines, newspapers, cartoons and corporate presentations.

Rick produces celebrity caricatures for magazines and various publications.

Working with a computer, Rick draws the pencil rough from a series of photographs then works the colour into layers which are then flattened down to create the final artwork.

From Royalty to TV personalities; Musicians to Actors and Actresses - Rick's celebrity caricatures bear an uncanny likeness!
