The Art Works
Mark & Amanda Hadlett
Caricaturist, Cartoonist, Illustrator, Graphic Designer - Storytellers
Caricaturist Mark Hadlett of The Art Works Teesside is available for bookings
Mark Hadlett has been working as a caricaturist for many years.
He's keen on Role Play events and brings this interest into being with his caricatures, dressing appropriately for themed events such as Pirates, Vikings or Elizabethans et cetera.
Mark also works alongside his wife as a storyteller, together they can be seen in schools dressed in Elizabethan attire; Mark acted the part of Will Shakespeare once, and Amanda, his 'serving wench'. The children asked questions of the life and times of Will Shakespeare whilst he tried his best to answer their enquiring minds as the character, bringing history to life! The Film of 'Shakespeare in Love' had just been released which gave Mark the perfect excuse for a visit to the cinema!
You don't have to worry about offending your guests as Mark tries to draw his caricatures as inoffensive as possible with light-hearted humour and banter to pass away the time, with the occasional assist from Amanda to entertain the queue.
Caricatures can be themed or a logo can be added in a style to suit your Company or your events theme.
He also designs Christmas cards for those who want a more bespoke service.
His own are always a personal design, unique in every sense of the word - a caricature of himself is hidden in the artwork but you'll have to look very closely to find 'Little Mark'!
