This weekend the Scottish Cartoon Art Studio reached its sixteenth anniversary.
Over the past year we became the first caricaturists in the country to offer live digital drawing as entertainment for high-end indoor events. We’ll continue to expand this service in the months ahead and hope to announce some exciting developments on this front very soon.
In the meantime our team will be entertaining the public at various events around Scotland during the summer season. We look forward to seeing and drawing you. As usual we’ll be posting a full schedule of appearances in the next few weeks.
Last year we toured an international cartoon exhibition about the Scottish independence referendum, covering all sides of the debate. With the current general election campaign reigniting interest in this issue we’ve been talking to a high profile venue about a further showing of The Auld Acquaintance. More details to be come if these negotiations prove fruitful.

The Studio continues to offer a wide variety of cartoon services. Here’s some recent feedback from our customers:
“Chris, thanks once again for the caricature of my daughter Katie – she loves it!” – L.Archibald, Glasgow
“Brilliant artwork… Just perfect. Thanks for everything.” – L.McBeth, Northampton
“Hi Terry. Collected the caricature this morning – blown away! Absolutely fabulous. I think [my parents-in-law] will really love it. The way you have managed to put in detail in the background is genius!” – V.Burnett, Aberdeen
“We had Tommy booked for my son’s first birthday party. Not only was he well presented, funny and witty with our guests he also showed patience with our Asian guests and kept very professional at the same time. He arrived early with very little short notice due to my lack of time co-ordination. Massive thumbs up for Tommy. Great pleasure having you there for an event that was stressful for my wife and I. Nonetheless you made me feel very at ease on how you handled the kids (not to mention the adults :p ) and stayed a little extra too. I would highly recommend you guys for family/friends and hopefully I will re-book in the future.” – Z.Ilahi, Glasgow
“Thanks very much for making us all laugh with the cartoons you drew of our staff at our event. It helped the party get off to a great start.” – G.Hill, BioOutsource Ltd
“Excellent.” “Inspiring!” “Very informative. Loved it!” “Fantastic, very interesting.” “I enjoyed it and learned a lot.” “Lots of ideas to take home.” “Brilliant, great fun. Please come back again.” – caricature workshop participants at Shrewsbury Cartoon Festival
Our caricature badges are proving popular with Doctor Who fans; more here.
Remember that those of you in the north and east of Glasgow can see cartoon features from the Studio every fortnight in the pages of The Genn.
