Andrew Morley, artist at large: have sketchbook, will travel. Creator of Temples of Nostalgia: sculptures constructed from found objects and rediscovered treasures.
Everyone enjoys a caricature, but usually only get to see funny pictures of the rich and famous. I have caricatured many rich and famous people; this is comparatively easy because of having seen the famous face dozens of times in the media before a direct meeting. A much greater challenge - one I particularly enjoy - is to be able to satirically capture the facial peculiarities of people whose features I have only just appeared clapped eyes on. That is why I operate as an Events Artist; at business conferences, weddings, bar mitzvahs, college re-unions and the like, during those moments of relaxation between the formal stages of the event, it is fun to have me there to amuse the guests by drawing their portraits. If there is a photo-copier to hand I can make copies then and there for the event hosts, (for the wedding album or year book or website), and the subject of the drawing has an original art-work to take home as a memento of the event.
