Digital Caricatures

Digital caricatures at an exhibition is a brilliant way to draw (see what I did there?) exhibition visitors onto your stand. Make your stand stand out with The Mad Badger!

I am a hugely experienced, professional caricaturist with nearly 20 years’ experience representing organisations across the UK and Europe. I offer digital caricatures which I personally believe works best at exhibitions. I draw these caricatures by using a laptop and digital drawing tablet which can be linked to a 52” plasma screen. I can draw the caricatures onto pre-drawn bodies (Superman, James Bond, Audrey Hepburn Marilyn Monroe etc etc) and print them off there and then. I save the image file as the email of the stand visitor so that the image can be emailed to them after the event.

Why Choose The Mad Badger?

Many organisations consider that a caricaturist would be ideal for their stand at a forthcoming exhibition and many want the most competitive price for such an artist. Before you opt for the cheapest option here are a few things you should consider:

  • I have worked for many years in Marketing for two major International Medical Diagnostics companies. I am fully aware of the importance of the role of the Exhibition Stand for your organisation.
  • At the beginning of the exhibition I will meet with your stand representatives and discuss with them what their ‘targets’ are for the day i.e. how many NEW visitor details they aim to achieve or what the major ‘message’ they wish to promote over the exhibition period. I will then work with your staff to attain such targets.
  • Any caricaturist can draw your visitors but can you guarantee that they won’t upset your very important stand visitors? I pride myself in never upsetting stand visitors and I’m always pleased when told that the visitor is going straight home to frame their caricature!
  • I can further increase your company profile by printing your company logo/message on the bottom of the card I use on the day.
  • Your stand profile can be increased with digital caricatures by linking my system to a 52” plasma screen (which you the client would need to provide). Anyone walking passed the stand will immediately see caricatures being drawn and it will literally ‘draw’ them onto the stand! I can print the caricatures onto specific client branded paper and also save the file using the visitor’s email address which I then hand over to you, the client, at the end of the exhibition thus enabling you to email the image to visitor after the exhibition has ended. The advantage to you then is that you get the visitor’s email address and the visitor gets a digital caricature emailed to them (for use as an avatar?)


“Simply Awesome…”
“John was present with our team during the recent OE2011 show and made a valuable contribution to our stand. John became ‘one of the family’ during the show and as a result the stand remained busy. The digital caricatures proved very popular with potential clients and John’s creative flair was certainly very entertaining. We would have no hesitation in employing John again as the quality of work he produced was simply awesome.”

Richard Orrell, Ekspan Limited

“His attitude and quality of work were second-to-none”
“Just wanted to let you know both I and my client (B&Q) were extremely pleased with John’s performance (digital caricatures) at the show (2 day exhibition at Earls Court, London). He was very professional and his attitude and quality of work was second-to-none. Please pass on my thanks to him.”

James Jablonski, Summit, London

“…an important part in our exceptionally successful recruitment campaign”
“John took part on behalf of Serco at a two day exhibition and drew caricatures non-stop. Almost continuously, John had a crowd of onlookers around him which was excellent both in terms of populating the stand as well as engaging the young people with our job opportunities across Serco. The quality of John’s work remained excellent throughout the two days and his enthusiasm never wavered. John’s caricature drawings played an important part in our exceptionally successful recruitment exhibition.”

Frank Slangen, HR Director, Serco

“He…helped us to retain a constant crowd, generating leads for three days. No mean feat.”
“John worked on our stand at the CIPD conference exhibition. He understood immediately what was required to get people onto the stand in an interesting and amusing way and helped us retain a constant crowd, generating leads for three days. No mean feat. His skill, speed and accuracy with the pen are breathtaking and when you add that to the professional way he conducted himself you could not hire more reliable or better. I look forward to working with John again soon.”
