“You were truly an absolute pleasure to meet! We have had so many guests complimenting you on your amazing drawings, the drawing you did of my husband and I was remarkable and now has pride of place in our wedding display cabinet. We will both be recommending you! All of our guests thoroughly enjoyed having you there, they are all still talking and giggling about their pictures! Well done and thank you so much, you truly did make so many people smile, thank you!
 Jo and Nigel Rooke,  Sheffield

“We just wanted to say thank you SO much for drawing so many caricatures at our wedding, we had an absolutely amazing day and everyone was, and still is, raving about their brilliant caricatures you did for so many of our guests!  Weddings are expensive and we were a bit concerned about the cost of having a caricaturist before we booked you, but can honestly say (and to anyone thinking of booking you in the future) you were worth every penny, and more!  It was great that you were able to give so many of our guests their own personal special memento from our wedding day! Thanks again and all the best for the future!”
Steve and Louise Eccles, Wedding, Pontefract

“With regards to John, he was once again a big hit and a joy to work with. He amazed every suspect to his drawing talent and didn’t seem at all flustered when he was pulled into different rooms to do special requests.  Please note though John will be used in the near future!”
West End Studios, London

“Dear John, Thank you for the pleasure you gave so many of my daughter’s wedding day guests yesterday evening. I am so glad I kept your card from all those years ago. What a wonderful talent you have!”
Wedding of Beverley Northway’s daughter, Yateley

“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 NEC, Birmingham

Hi John, Thank you so much for travelling down here and for all your great work on Saturday night – EVERYONE thought you were great. Hugh will be giving the original now to his friends and has scanned them for future reference. Many people took their pictures and I guess are adorning their office or bedroom walls! I hope you had a good night too!
Clare James, 21st Birthday Party, Surrey

Hi John, Just wanted to say a massive thank you for being a part of our special day. The guest really enjoyed having their caricatures done and the ones we saw were fab. Ours will certainly take pride of place. Attached are a couple of our official wedding photos we thought you might like to see. We will definitely recommend you to other people.

Ian and Becka, Cirencester

John Roberts was excellent, he was on time and provided great entertainment for the guests. He looked great with his outfit and just moved around the crowd with ease with his personable approach! My clients were very happy with him thank you.
Stacey-Marie Chalk, Bristol

“John Roberts was so clever, our afternoon with him was so amusing, he just sat there and drew everyone, even a six week old baby and one of our party from a photo (he had to leave for the afternoon), and got it just right.  Everyone found the afternoon very entertaining and was pleased with their drawings.  I went round to my daughters at the weekend and she had her family of 4 framed and hanging on the wall!”
Linda Oglesby, Bath

“The party was a great success and you were fantastic. You were the icing on the cake and the children and parents loved you! You added another dimension to the whole party and your work is fabulous, funny and entertaining and puts a smile on everyone’s faces.”
Angela Mehra-Patel, London

“John is such a great guy and I really enjoyed the chance to work with him over the course of the conference – He has a brilliant imagination and managed to put words into pictures with what seemed effortless ease – he worked well with the clients and the end result is marvellous (I hope to email pictures tomorrow). I hope that another opportunity to work with him arrives again soon!”
Alistair, West End Studios, Hertfordshire

“We can’t thank you enough for making our day so extra special.  Our family and friends were delighted with their personal caricature pictures. They were all brilliant and you so picked out the essence of each person.  We were also amazed at how many you were able to do.  We also would like to say that your professional and friendly manner made it feel that you were a family friend at our wedding and we would have no hesitation in recommending your wonderful artistic gift to others. Thank you again for helping to make our wedding day so extra special.”
Ruth and Nigel Fowler, Greenwich

“We wanted something different to entertain our guests at our recent wedding and thought a caricaturist would be something really fun and different. We were right! John did an absolutely brilliant job, all the guests loved their caricatures and went home with a wonderful keepsake and reminder of our wedding. We still can’t believe how quickly the drawings were done and we’re sure most of the guests received one (70 people). We can’t recommend John enough, he made our wedding evening so memorable, and we’re so glad we hired him. John, Thank-you so much!
Jo & Ben Wheeler Wedding, Tetbury

“Hi John, Just to say THANK YOU very much, we all appreciated your efforts tremendously, we knew you would be busy, that was an understatement. the speed you work at, is truly amazing to watch. we are not sure how many you did, but after 4 hours at that pace you must have been worn out. You have made a lot of people happy with your work, and considering the speed you were working the accuracy of peoples features is spot on including the exaggerated features. So thanks again, we WILL recommend you to anyone without fail, you helped to make a good day very memorable. All the best
Edwin Hopley Son’s Wedding, Cheshire

“We have been reflecting on the Wedding today, and we both agree that of all the special things which we booked for the day, booking you was definitely something towards the top of the list.  You did such a fantastic job, entertained everyone, and gave us such unique pictures/memories that we will be able to keep forever – we cannot thank you enough, and will be recommending you to everyone!”
Debbie & Colin Davis, Wedding, London

“Just wanted to let you know both I and my client (B&Q) were extremely pleased with John’s performance 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

“On behalf of Sarah and I, thank you very much for performing at our wedding reception. Everybody loved the caricatures and they have featured in several photos and now Facebook as people’s thumbnails/icons! The caricatures were a real hit, something different and original (and unexpected) and were one of the highlights of the day!”
Sarah & Andrew, Wedding at The Temple, Stancombe Park

“John took part on behalf of Serco Integrated Transport (SIT) in a two day exhibition for young people between 14-19 years old called ‘Skills for London 2008’. John was tasked to draw as many caricatures as possible during this important recruitment event for SIT in order to draw the young people in, so they would visit our stand. He drew caricatures non-stop and managed to do over 130 during the two days. 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 SIT. The quality of John’s work remained excellent throughout the day and his enthusiasm never wavered. John’s caricature drawings played an important part in our exceptionally successful recruitment exhibition. I would fully recommend John to any organisation who are planning to organise an exhibition or similar event, and I am more than happy to provide a personal recommendation if requested.”
Frank Slangen, HR Director, Serco, London

“Gary and I would like to thank you so much for coming to our wedding.  You really did such a wonderful job and you were a real talking point during the day!  The drawings were absolutely fantastic and we can’t thank you enough.  You were highly professional and we didn’t really know you were there most of the time!”
Mr and Mrs Owen, Coventry

“John was brilliant and caught so many people absolutely perfectly throughout the evening, in caricatures which we will use to great effect amongst the staff!! I was grateful for him travelling such a long way to get to us and hope he got home ok after the event. Again, I didn’t get to speak to him when he left, but would be very pleased if you could pass on my thanks for a great form of entertainment which helped the evening to be a real success!”
Andrea Brandon, Essential Lighting Group Ltd, London

“Just a quick mail to thank you for doing such a fantastic job at our wedding reception and help make our day as special as it was.

We are so glad we decided to have John at our wedding. Highly recommended. Thanks so much John!”
