Caricature Artist Cape Town

Ted is a live caricature artist in Cape Town who provides entertainment during the canapés or reception of your special day, as well as doubling as take-home gifts to guests at your wedding. He has drawn at dozens of weddings and thousands of festive faces, young and old, have sat for his portraits. Your guests won’t have to sit warming the seat for too long either. Ted draws 16-18 faces an hour in black and white (that’s around 3-4 minutes a face) and guests can chat and have a drink as they sit. The drawings are produced on good firm art paper with smudge and fade-proof ink. It comes with a tidy envelope for safekeeping just in case uncle Basil puts his cheesecake dessert down on top of it.

You will often see a crowd gathering and watching over Ted’s shoulder as they laugh with their friends and family being drawn before they head off to compare drawings and party the night away. Ted also works professionally as a book illustrator. He brings a touch of the book illustration to feel to his portraits, caricatures with a focus on characters. His goal is always to try to capture an expression or a bit of personality first and foremost.

Ted also offers impressionistic sketches of ceremonies, on arrangement. These sketches, done in ink with watercolor added, typically take 30 minutes to an hour depending on the length of the ceremony. Ted has drawn at weddings all over South Africa and works primarily in the Western Cape area including the West Coast, Cape Town, Stellenbosch, Durbanville, and the Overberg.
