Wayne has been an established, self taught illustrator on the Sunshine Coast since 1985. His early highlight commissions include caricatures for the entire Norwood Football Club, a prominent SANFL team, during their historic Grand Final Victory in 1984 and t-shirt designs for Golden Breed, a prominent surf and sport clothing company.
Since 1991 Wayne has been commissioned by The Hyatt Regency in Coolum, Queensland as a regular caricature artist in their popular Village Square. This led him to offering his popular caricature skills for events from private parties to corporate conventions and since then, this has become a key focus in his services as an artist.
Other highlights in this category of work includes commissioning by The Hamilton Island Resort, Queensland, Summertime in Europe '98 operating around the caf terraces in Belgium, Holland, the Brighton Pier in England, the Adelaide Fringe Festival and Woodford Folk Festival.
Wayne's illustrative capabilities are as diverse in style as his clients and market demand. He makes a great addition to many styles of functions.
Why is a Roving Cartoonist so great for parties and functions?
Caricatures are a popular form of entertainment for a number of reasons……
They take up little space
They make a great conversation starter for guests who haven't met before
They provide entertainment for onlookers who enjoy the demonstration as much as the sitter getting their portrait done
They provide exposure for your company with a letterhead or logo. (Great for Trade Shows and public events)
They make an amusing souvenir of the event.
They're low key so can be used in conjunction with other entertainment such as musicians.
The artworks may also depict the person as a full body involved in a favourite hobby or occupation with a caption or nickname.
