Live caricature: here’s a real-time video of me drawing a wedding guest in the Oriel House Hotel Cork last Saturday. Each face takes under 3 minutes and you can get a good idea of the process from this video. She was very happy with it! It’s a great ice-breaker for your guests when they arrive in the hotel and really gets the fun going for the day. I had a lovely review from the couple whose big day it was too!

Absolutely unreal talent. Great banter. Worth every penny. Fab keepsake

Birthday Portrait

Birthday pencil portrait drawing twins by Allan CavanaghRecently finished pencil drawing for a birthday present, worked up to A2 size from an old photo of the subjects from when they were children (without revealing ages I believe it was circa 1970s!).
I forget sometimes being so reliant on inks that pencil itself is a beautiful medium, especially when you’re working with a good range- I use B, 2B, 5B and 8B, starting with the hardest and working up to the softest, which corresponds with the darkest areas of the portrait. You need to be very careful when working with soft pencils as they smudge so easily.
