Red Faces Caricatures have been providing entertainment at corporate and special events since 2002.
Founded by artist Brad Blaze, the business started after Brad found himself in the newspapers and on television from his caricatures in the Bald Archy Prize (a satire of the Archibald Prize, but for cartoonists).
He was asked to draw ‘live’ at corporate events and within the next five years he grew the business from a one-man operation to a team of over 30 talented artists around Australia.
Large roadshows and promotions saw us co-ordinate events with reliability and professionalism.
As at 2021, after drawing ‘live’ at over 3,000 events and coming up to 20 years in business, we have undergone a rebranding, with new website, logo, social media accounts and also added unique gift services.
Red Faces conducted instore caricatures at Typo locations across Australia. The traditional caricatures were drawn on branded A2 size sheets of paper featuring the Typo logo and and Snoopy (from Peanuts). Where possible, our artists used stationary that could be purchased instore. We certainly drew a crowd.

Red Faces conducted caricatures at casinos and clubs across Australia promoting the brand to a primary demographic of males and females in the 30-50 years of age range. Working with a promotional staff agency, our artists drew caricatures for people who were willing to purchase the drink, introducing them to an upmarket whiskey. Over 30 Red Faces artists were used in the promotion across Australia during the 300 event promotion.

Client: Orrcon Racing / Ford
Red Faces conducted caricatures for Orrcon Racing at V8 races across Australia for 2 years. Using multiple artists we drew individual caricatures on paper initially, but in the second year we drew huge caricature posters of all the attendees in the Orrcon corporate box. It was a lot of fun and such a unique experience for the attendees. Orrcon turned these posters into prints and sent these to their clients.
