I'm a freelance cartoonist, specialising in covering sailing events, and live drawing at conferences. I can draw anything from a caricature for your retiring colleague, or a cartoon character for your business, council or campaign, to a series of cartoons for your Formula One racing team, Olympic sailing campaign or regatta ( check out my work last year at Hamilton Island Race Week, and the America's Cup ).
In between events I take commissions for caricatures, cartoons, character creation and illustration.
My clients include Louis Vuitton, Prada, Alinghi, Ferrari, Swedish Match, Whitbread, Auckland Regional Council, North Shore City Council, Manukau City Council, IRD, MSD, Landcorp, Westpac, ANZ, BNZ, KPMG, TVNZ, TV3, Maori TV, NZ Couriers, Gallagher Group, and many others.
My MONSTA character was adopted by the Whitbread Round the World Race in the 90's, and we have covered the last six America's Cups, drawing for Louis Vuitton and Prada in Auckland in Auckland in 2000 and 2003. I was Luna Rossa's team cartoonist in Valencia in 2007, and Alinghi's from 2008 to 2010, drawing a series on the off the water duel with Oracle. Last year I drew this series on AC34 in San Francisco.
I draw live caricatures of conference delegates, or the guests at your event. People love to watch drawing, and with my tablet and projector, the whole room can watch as I draw quick caricatures. Everyone gets a unique personalised gift to take home...
I also do "graphic notetaking ", drawing live cartoons of the proceedings of workshops and the presentations of conference speakers. I have a degree in economics and marketing so I like to think I can understand and distill business concepts in simple, humourous ways. If you can make someone laugh, you know you've made them think!
Here's my latest MONSTAcartoon! You can buy this as a canvas print, ready to hang, in various sizes...other MONSTAprints are available at the shop...
Caricatures are the perfect gift for the person who has everything... birthdays, retirements, farewellls, graduation... great for groups to commemorate an achievement or milestone.
I just need a photo or set of photos and a description of the scene you'd like.... I'll email you a draft to approve, and the finished cartoon by courier and email.
If you'd like a cartoon, caricature, character/logo or illustration drawn, or a unique way to draw a crowd at your conference or Christmas party, please email me or phone 0800 666782 (in NZ) for some ideas and a quote...
