THE WORLD OF ARTIST PAUL CEMMICK
The Fastest Artist In Town.
I have worked as a free-lance cartoonist/illustrator for over 30 years. During that time my work has appeared in numerous BBC, National Newspapers, magazines, books and on 5 BAFTA winning TV shows. From Match of the Day Magazine to Illustrating the Maid Marian book series. I love drawing in different styles - check out my varied clients below. I am fast and versatile and can produce quick caricatures on the spot for birthdays, weddings or corporate events. I can work digitally and traditionally in watercolour or oil. I am very good with animals for all your pet portrait needs and children having taught in Brighton for over a year.
So, to sum up- if you need a friendly, fast, versatile portrait artist or caricaturist for an event or a private commission - contact me!
I love drawing portraits and caricatures using different types of art material.
There is excitement in the vibrant colours and textures of traditional paints like watercolour, oil and acrylic. Sometimes you are surprised by the “happy accident” using real pigment, particularly from watercolour which seems to have a life of its own. I’ve even had three exhibitions of portraits drawn in coffee with a spoon!
What got me into drawing in the first place was copying cartoons as a child and most of my career has involved humorous drawings and caricatures. I usually draw these with an old fashioned dip-pen dipped into a bottle of Indian Ink. Then when the drawing is dry I scan it into my Mac and colour the image in Photoshop. My caricature work has appeared in numerous magazines and newspaper as well as award winning TV shows like Spitting Image and Tony Robinson’s Maid Marian and her Merry Men.

COMMISSiONS for Caricatures
in Ink or Water Colour
All through my career as an illustrator I have loved drawing caricatures of people in comic strips, magazine articles, in person and on TV shows. I am currently drawing caricatures of footballers every week in the magazine Match of the Day. Just recently I have started drawing portraits and caricature of people’s pets (mainly dogs) which is great fun and private commissions are always welcome.
COFFEE ART ...!
Just Coffee & A Spoon
My coffee drawings came about by accident.
It was a habit of mine to do a little drawing in my sketchbook will I was having breakfast in my local cafe. One morning I forgot to take my pencil with me so instead of giving up I thought I’d try drawing in the sketchbook with coffee using the handle of a spoon as my pencil. I was rather pleased with the way it looked so I carried on developing the style. I would draw friends over coffee as well as imaging from magazines and the internet. Finally, I had enough good ones for an exhibition and to date I’ve had three shows of my coffee drawings and more surprisingly, I appeared on a very popular TV show drawing one of the cast live on film. The show was The Only Way is Essex who were filming in Majorca at the time and wanted me to pose as a Spanish street artist called Pablo Cappuccino! Fame at last!
