Client testimonials

We had a drinks event with the client where we presented the framed version and they loved it. Every time I have spoken to them since, they have noticed some more of the details and have some more wisecracks to make about the various personalities involved. Thanks again for doing such a great job.

Macquarie Bank Limited

Friggin' brilliant!! I am not sure that is a really business like comment - but gosh that is good! Thank you!

AMP Customer Service

Thankyou so much for the caricature... the cartoon will now reside with me in England. It is very much appreciated.

Sir Elton John

Too kind, you really were too, too terribly kind... I long since gave up hoping to be attractive but alas... I've been living with "interesting" for nearly ten years, but now I have "manic" all thanks to you

Doug Mulray

Your caricatures are great, and they were a definite drawcard to our stand during the exhibition! You certainly brought some fun and novelty to the whole event, and helped to make it a successful venture
