What is Spot On Caricatures?

George Williams of Spot On Caricatures I am ‘Spot On George’ a freelance illustrator, caricaturist and entertainer. I provide top quality entertainment in the form of quick-draw caricatures.

How did Spot On Caricatures come about and how long has the business been going?

I began trading as a Graphic Designer in 1991, but found more opportunities lay in the entertainment industry, more specifically Live Caricatures. I was asked to draw at an Army event in 1991, liked it and so launched from there.

What services can Spot On Caricatures provide at a wedding?

I’m primarily a professional entertainer and I can keep your guests occupied, help break the ice and create talking points during the quieter spots.

What’s the best thing about your job?

I get to travel lots, meet new people every day and gain access to some of the UK’s most prestigious and beautiful venues. Of course, making strangers smile is always a joy. I’m a born show-off!

Spot On Caricatures - Michael Jackson

Does Spot On Caricatures have a specialist area?

I specialise in wedding entertainment; I am expert in opening conversations, raising smiles, but remaining professional and unobtrusive at all times, never crass or domineering.

Who/what are your influences?

Artistically Al Hirschfield – a great minimalist caricaturist. Otherwise I’m my own best/worst critic or influence.

Spot On Caricatures - Amanda Holden

Do you have a favourite caricature you have drawn? (If you can choose!)

Studio-wise I’d say Michael Jackson but live I’d have to say Amanda Holden, drawn at her ‘Hen pyjama party’. That was a blast!!

What’s your top tip for choosing the perfect wedding entertainment?

Never cut corners or budget on the biggest day of your life. Always look for an established professional; the industry is full of part time amateurs, looking for a fast buck. Above all, look at any entertainer as a guest and simply say “Do I like this person? Would I be happy inviting this guest if they weren’t here to entertain?”  Weddings are for friends after-all.
