Mike Bryson’s “Country Characters” set to cheer during Lakes Festival weekend

Mike Bryson's Country Characters

Cartoonist Mike Bryson has announced he a small exhibition of some of his “Country Characters” at the Signature Gallery in Kendal during the Lakes International Comic Art Festival.

On Sunday 14th October, Mike will be in the gallery, with his work, from 10.00am – 5.00pm and sketching caricatures for the public – for free.

This looks like it’s going to be a brilliant exhibition any way – but the bonus of free sketches from the artist is such a treat.

Lancaster-based Mike Bryson is not only in demand as a cartoonist for advertising campaigns, magazine cover illustrations, educational material, and children’s books – he’s one of the foremost and most experienced walkabout caricaturists in the UK, specialising in working live at a huge variety of events, including corporate events, big dinner parties, weddings, birthday parties, award ceremonies, family fun days, bar mitzvahs and christenings.

“For my live work I usually don’t travel too far from North West England, but for studio commissions my range is worldwide,” he says.

Mike also takes commissions from photographs, offering an ideal gift for significant birthdays, and anniversaries, and says he can produce large group and team caricature pieces for professional organisations, large and small,” from Huddersfield to Hong Kong : Macclesfield to Miami: Bolton to Bermuda!”

He’s recently added moving images to his portfolio, in the form of animated explainer videos and talking caricatures.
