INFORMATION, PRICING, PHOTOS, REVIEWS and BOOKING
We set up the Doodle Bar at your venue, ready to surprise and entertain your guests.
Guests are drawn live on the night (or in the day!). They can either stand at The Doodle Bar and watch Melissa bring them to life as illustrated characters. Or, alternatively, they can have their photo taken for Melissa to work from and pop back later to pick up their drawing!
Depending on how long you book for, you may want to allocate drawings to guests. We can provide 'ADMIT ONE' vintage style tickets or personalised concert style tickets. These work brilliantly as favours or can be added to party bags!
We can encourage your guests to post their drawings on social media with a personalised hashtag. Or, if you'd like a copy of every drawing, just let us know when you book and we'll edit and email them over after the event!

My boyfriend bought me a portrait for my birthday. Best gift I have ever received.
My girlfriend absolutely loves the drawing! She said it was the most romantic birthday present ever.
Melissa is very talented and her illustrations bring character and personality. She provided amazing attention to detail, expert service and completed the project I needed in quick time. I would definitely recommend her services to anyone who is looking for an original gift to treasure forever.
I cannot put into words how pleased I am with what Melissa has created for me. She has truly helped bring my vision to life! If you're after something special and unique then look no further.
Mel did an absolutely fantastic job of our illustration, we were so pleased with it! The scene we wanted to set was quite specific and held a lot of meaning for us, and Mel managed to capture this beautifully. The level of effort she put in to ensure it was perfect for us shows in the final image and we couldn't be any happier! Would recommend without any hesitation!
Amazing talent and extremely happy with my picture.
Absolutely love our drawing! It's now framed & hung up on the wall. Thank you so much Melissa! Would highly recommend ordering.
She cried with happiness when I gave her the picture! It was the perfect wedding gift.
I have been working as an artist since graduating in 2012. In this time I have had the pleasure of producing hundreds of commissions for clients all over the world. These include work for Olympian Louis Smith (MBE), Boy Better Know rapper JME and international football player, Calum Chambers. Earlier this year my illustrated response to the London terror attack was featured on the BBC and Heart FM.
Art continues to be my way of responding to the world around me as well as (hopefully!) spreading some joy through commissions, paintings and events.
