I recently used Mark to prepare a group of cartoons for my golf group. Mark was amazing - I gave him one briefing and he "got it" instantly. He captured the images and spirit of the cartoons to perfection - and completed the project quickly and efficiently. He was a pleasure to work with and I would thoroughly recommend him to anyone. The cartoons were a huge hit with my mates - a hole in one as one of them put it!!
We booked TIPPETTURES for the Foundation's Annual Charity Ball at the ICC, Darling Harbour in July 2019. Set up in the Foyer, Mark from TIPPETTURES was popular throughout the night with his fun caricatures. Often there was a queue of people waiting and Mark generously stayed an extra hour for free to support our fundraising event. All money raised at the Ball went to build homes for homeless youth, and TIPPETTURES was a fantastic entertainment element on the night.

Mark Tippett is a genius. He was able to capture the character and unique qualities of each of our staff to create the perfect Christmas gifts.... .
Mark from TIPPETTURES was a fabulous addition to our Corporate Charity Lunch this year. He worked tirelessly throughout the event, drawing some amazing caricatures for our guests which were the source of some funny stories and memories. I wouldn't hesitate in using Mark for our event again.

Mark is an absolute pro. He was an outstanding conversationalist with conference delegates and his craftsmanship was just perfection. Each and every delegate walked away with a smile on their face (both real and on paper) and would return throughout the day to watch Mark work his magic. I would not hesitate to recommend Mark to anyone – it was a joy working with him.

We used Mark Tippett for my daughter's christening this year. Mark was an absolute smash with the guests. While he was drawing quickly, the quality of his work was amazing. He was so friendly with the guests and worked for five (5) hours straight to make sure he drew as many guests as possible. Guests were so excited to walk away from our function with a unique memento of the event. I could not recommend Mark enough!
Mark is fantastic - he has the wonderful skill of being able to capture the 'essence' of people in a brief meeting. I invited Mark to my 60th birthday party to draw the guests. He was fabulous. He had people lining up for their caricatures and it caused a great sensation. Everyone loved it and I would recommend Mark and his crayons to everyone.
Absolutely loved Mark’s caricatures. Mark attended our Christmas function as entertainment and everyone was very happy with the caricatures. His cartooning was great and our staff thought he was a hit. Mark was fast and efficient and the drawing was exactly what we wanted. Thank you for such a great experience.
A great value add to our event. Having the caricaturist Mark as our entertainment element for the evening, was fun for our guests and a talking point for the evening. Thanks for a great night!
Wollongong UniCentre has had an ongoing partnership with TIPPETTURES over the past several years. The artists never cease to amaze the students and staff of UOW with their skill, flair and enthusiasm. We look forward to working together again in the near future.

These are the some of the drawings I donated to the children of Aussie Tara Winkler's Cambodian Children's Trust (CCT). With thanks to Daisy Gibbs, Project Coordinator, with translation. CCT is a non-profit NGO working to break the cycle of poverty in the Battambang region of Cambodia. They run a range of programmes supporting vulnerable and underprivileged children and families. This is what the boys and girls had to say:
"So beautiful, and very funny. My face looked so very weird, but still like my face. It made all of the children laugh so much that some of them cried."
"Honestly, I was a bit scared when I saw my face at first. But then I laugh and laugh so much. I put the drawing next to my photo and everyone knows that it is me."
"I like this kind of drawing a lot, it is very interesting. Sometimes it looks like my face, but sometimes I look crazy. I have never seen drawings like this before."
