Hi there, I'm Rory!
Funky Doodles officially started in 2018, but I’ve been drawing for as long as I can remember.
From making cartoons of my teachers in school, to doodling over napkins in restaurants growing up, my earliest memories all involve drawing.
It is my passion and I love that I can share it and bring joy to others through my work.
What you need to know
so, what is...
I’ll come to your event, whatever it is, and draw caricatures of your guests! It's lots of fun, a great way to break the ice and guests get to take away a lovely memento from the event in the form of a personal portrait! I also do commissions for personal requests. All the info you need is below.

I've popped up in a variety of different places, including the final episode of Derry Girls, animating the new Bank Building for Primark in Belfast, publishing my own children's book, and my pièce de resistance…Micah Richard's Twitter profile pic!
Where You'll Find Me
(people have been talking)
Have a nosy below at what some of my previous customers have to say…
"great banter with the guests!"
We had Rory come to our wedding, he was fantastic! Very professional, his drawings were great and he was able to have fun and great banter with guests as well!
"nothing was a problem for him"
I can't recommend Rory highly enough! I came to him with some really specific requests for my caricatures and at quite late notice and nothing was a problem for him.
"pleasure to have you as part of our big day"
You are such a nice, friendly and down to earth guy .. it was an absolute pleasure to have you as part of our big day. Will definitely be recommending you to others.

(and my drawing)
It wasn’t long before my own drawings got me noticed, and on the odd occasion into trouble, like the time my dad handed out books at a community event, only for them to discover the first page of each book had a squiggly drawing of Fred Flintstone, signed by yours truly!
From there my self-teaching continued (which mainly involved copying the art from all my favourite cartoons!) until I formally studied art and eventually got involved in painting seasonal window graphics for local businesses.
This quickly developed into also providing art commissions and live caricatures at weddings and corporate parties. Since then, I have become one of Northern Ireland’s most established live caricature artists, travelling across the country for events.

you've got a question?
Here are some of the common questions I get asked about my caricature services - if you have a question, maybe it's answered here! If not, just drop me a line and I'll get back to you!
At a wedding or live event, it takes about four minutes to draw each person. When I’m doing personal commissions, each drawing can take two weeks to produce, that’s including print and delivery time.
The best thing is just to get in touch and then we can figure out if your event is a good fit! Most of my requests are for caricature Belfast but I often travel further for caricature Northern Ireland too, as well as the border counties (Louth, Monaghan, etc). My ability to travel will depend on my schedule at the time, so the best thing is simply drop me an email with the details of your event and I’ll get back to you.
Absolutely, it’s yours to do with as you please – frame it, put it in an underground vault, use it to help light the fire, or make an NFT out of it.
All drawings are on A3 sized paper.
