    Very pleased with Allan's caricature drawing of my brother and sis in law. It arrived while we were away on a mini-break and my son emailed me a pic of it, which I opened whilst sitting in a full (socially distanced) restaurant dining room. Hubby and I were in a heap with laughter and got plenty of stares. I'll follow up with a pic of "the victims:)" and the caricature after it's given to them as a birthday present. Thanks again Allan. Great work.

    Allan provided the entertainment at our wedding on Dec 6th 2020. Our guests were delighted with their caricatures and well impressed by the speed at which they were done. We have even seen some of our guests that loved them so much they had their caricatures framed!Another thing we'd like to point out is that Allan was very easy to deal with and very responsive to all our messages. I would recommend his services to anyone who needs something unique and fun for entertainment.Thanks very much Allan!

    Allan is such a joy to work with, professional and talented. I have commissioned two pieces from him and both times I was delighted with what he produced. His creativity and imagination captured the character of the people he was depicting. These were very important gifts that I wanted to be unique and precious to the receiver and I was not disappointed. Every time they look at the piece they see another element, another little quirk which brings a smile.

  • Redited- Allan spotted my review on here and contacted me immediately. He had genuinely missed my email. He rectified it straight away and sent out a sketch. He dealt with the situation really well and I think that's a sign of really good customer service.EDITED. Allan was supposed to send us a sketch of ourselves after the wedding because he left before we got back to the hotel. He never did, and didn't respond to emails. Left a bad taste.Original review belowMy husband and I got Allan for our wedding coctail hour in Galway June 2017. Allan was super easy to deal with and very professional. In the run up to a wedding you appreciate straight forward suppliers who respond quickly and Allan did just that. Delighted we went with him.

    This was my second time requesting a caricature from Allan and once again he did not disappoint! The first was a caricature for my wedding and the second was a request from my dad for a caricature of a friend who had a big birthday coming upAllan is just fantastic and so talented, he manages to capture features and expressions to an absolute tee, the extras he adds to his caricatures like the persons interests, hobbies etc , add that extra personal element to his drawingsOn both occasions the caricatures received over whelming responses 🙂 Allan himself is so professional and friendly, I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a caricaturist and I will definitely be ordering from him again in the future!

    We wanted a unique wedding invitation and contacted Allan with a picture of both of us and a few ideas on what he might include in the caricature. He got back with an amazing caricature of us with the venue we were to be married in on the background. We created a wedding invitation ourselves with this picture and were so impressed with the reaction we got from guests we decided to hire Allan on the Wedding Day too in Cabra Castle in Cavan to do LIVE caricatures. We were delighted with response from our guest s. He even took photos of our guests next to the completed caricatures which we really appreciated seeing afterwards as had been too busy on the day to see them done. We felt also it was a classy form of entertainment that matched our venue perfectly and in our opinion provided a lot more entertainment than the usual selfie machine you see regularly these days. Could not recommend Allan enough!!

Eveyone was gathered around him as he did his masterpieces. We all had a great laugh at them afterwards.
