A few snapshots of George at work, drawing caricatures live, from 1991 to 2022. A truly unique character and first class entertainer.

“On 30th September 2015 luxury brand THOMAS SABO welcomed a host of International footballers and celebrities to the flagship store on London’s South Molton Street to introduce them to the new Fine Jewellery and Love Bridge Collections. Guests included stylish editors and bloggers plus an array of international stars, singers Frankie Bridge and Nina Nesbitt, celebrity chef Tess Ward, nutritionist and best-selling author Rosanna Davison, footballers Matthew Etherington and Simon Davies.

Renowned caricaturist George Williams with his hilarious portraits was another of the amusements organised by THOMAS SABO for the star-studded event: in just a couple of minutes talented George created each of the guest’s caricature as a further memento of a very special night, causing some serious laughing in seeing their faces cartooned with his spot-on sketches.”   Shadia Daho (Dubai)

Thanks Shadia for your kind blog. The event even made the headlines in a recent issue (1401) of HELLO! magazine, where I got a mention by name…

University lecturer – George

University lecturer – George

I was overjoyed when my old university DMU asked me to lecture their animation students about caricatures, though a little scared! I was sure the students would know more about my subject than I did, so I spent a few days researching the basics; history, meanings, usage and contemporaries in the caricature world.  I managed to put together a 78 slide lecture, covering how to see a caricature, how to create a caricature and the history of caricature, interlaced with demonstrations and volunteers to be drawn.

After much preparation, the day came and I made my way to the stunning Hugh Aston building, with my laptop and my drawing board, to be greeted by a handful of weary students. Numbers were a little disappointing, but I managed to keep them entertained for a good 90 minutes, followed by more drawing and Q&A.

Back in April I was filmed by Channel 4 for their show ‘Coach Trip’ where I helped the contestants draw each other. This was shown last night on UK prime time TV!

George has drawn many UK celebrities over the years and a few even posed for snapshots too.

Amanda Holden’s Hen Party

Amanda Holden invited me to entertain at her Hen ‘Pyjama’ Party in 2008, where I met and drew the cast of ‘Cutting It’ (BBC), which included Sarah Parish, Angela Griffin, Sian Reeves, Sally Spode and of course Amanda. How much fun can one guy have in a bedroom full of lovely pyjama-clad ladies? Much fun was had by all and many caricatures were drawn!

George has been drawing live party caricatures since 1991 and attends hundreds of events each year. George livens up any event with his whit, charm and lightning fast drawings, which have the room in stitches! George takes photos of his favourite subjects, as time allows just a few from the dozens drawn to be immortalised. Look out for Spot On George’s caricatures at an event near you…
