Meet Ian Lloyd, the entrepreneur and artist behind sketches at Parody Portraits. Ian has been doodling all his life, his passion being kindled as early as five years old.
Fast-forward a few years and we find Ian on holiday with his family and in particular his grandfather, who encouraged him to sit to be drawn by a caricature artist. Being somewhat in awe of the results, Ian's grandfather asked the caricature artist to switch roles with Ian, and he was invited to draw the caricaturist's caricature! Encouraged by the multitude of smiles and laughs generated, Ian was instantly hooked and set out to develop a career out of caricature drawing.
Having sketched throughout his schooldays, and after spending a period studying Art and Design at college, Ian finally set up Parody Portraits in August of 2011.
