Back in October, I took a graduation celebration trip down to London for 2.5 day. One thing I’ve wanted to have done for so so long after seeing it often in the streets of London was to have a caricature drawing done of me. Walking (or driving) down Leicester Square, I had thought to myself ‘I’ve wanted it done for so long, there are so many caricature artists here…why not?! :D’ and so i did!
I went over towards the row of artists and one artist came over and offered me a ‘reduced rate’ for a drawing of me but I think they must make up the prices for each person anyway. As we were there during the October half term, he had his young son with him who my carer ended up watching whilst he was busy! So as I was sat there, people were stopping to watch his drawing – perhaps deciding if they wanted one done too 🙂
After about 20 minutes of sitting there, he showed me the drawing and I was so happy. The only thing I worried about the rest of the trip was how we’d be able to keep it from creasing or ripping. Luckily, we managed to get it home in one piece and now I need to find a frame for it as I love it so much 😀 I know each caricature artist will draw in completely different styles but I feel, if i think about that, I’d end up going to every person i see!
Till next time,
