Mark and Amanda of The Artworks are based in Teesside. They offer caricatures and storytelling to the Corporate market, Schools, Weddings, Parties, Galas and all sorts of venues and events.
They're both keen on the Role Play scene and can often be seen dressed as Pirates, Vikings or Elizabethans etc, which they bring into there work as caricaturist and storytellers by dressing for a Themed Event.
It's nothing for them to be seen in schools; Mark dressed and acting the part of Will Shakespeare and Amanda, his 'serving wench'. The children can ask questions of the life and times of Will Shakespeare as he answers them, in character, bringing history to life!
For the Corporate market Mark can be seen with his wife Amanda dressed in costumes such as Vikings, Elizabethan or any theme you care to mention, drawing caricatures of clients depicted in costumes of the era. His caricatures are inoffensive, humorous and a delightful memory of any event. They can be themed for your event by adding your logo, your name, the style is entirely your own.
Mark also designs Christmas cards. His own are always a personal design, unique in every sense of the word. And in every caricature can be seen his trade mark 'little Mark' (look closely at some of the samples to find him).
In their spare time, Mark and Amanda perform their own style of music (Mark writes his own songs - a demo of which is currently available via itunes or upon request).
