Dan produced a caricature cartoon for a group of us to give a friend. The brief was complicated and given with a short time scale, the results however surpassed all our expectations, everyone that contributed towards the gift was delighted with the finished picture and Mark who received the gift was quite overwhelmed. The picture traveled all the way to Bulgaria and will have pride of place in the new club house at the Ibar Golf Club. We would highly recommend Dan and his work it is an excellent and unique gift which will give years of pleasure. Thanks Dan you’re a star!

We couldn’t believe how fantastic the picture was, it caught Emma absolutely perfectly! It made a fantastic 30th Birthday present and she could not of been more thrilled… I think Dan will be getting an order from everyone who was at the party!

If you are looking for an illustrator, look no further. Dan has just completed a caricature for me. It is AMAZING! The detail and likeness is incredible. So talented! Nothing was too much trouble. He was extremely professional throughout and provided help and ideas when needed. Dan also arranged the framing for me. The end result was PERFECT. I would HIGHLY recommend Daniel Jeffery.

SSE is constructing new electricity transmission lines to export power from new renewable energy projects in the sensitive environments of the North of Scotland. Having seen the work that Daniel did for our Onshore Wind Operations team on Safety, we approached him to produce similar artwork to convey some simple messages about managing the environment. Working from our sketches, Daniel prepared a set of illustrations that get the messages across in a focussed and simple manner. As testament to their effectiveness, our contractors have asked to use them to brief their own staff.

Thank you Dan for completing the caricature to the short deadline and using the information we supplied in such a amusing fashion. We were all really pleased with the picture.

The picture was absolutely fantastic and David loved it. It was a great surprise for him on Christmas morning – he just kept looking at it saying “cool”. The picture is now hanging in our entrance hall for all to admire. Thank you very much and good luck for the future.

We contacted Dan to create a special and creative goodbye present for the retirement of Stewart, one of the senior directors at our company. We held two brainstorm sessions with him at our office during which a variety of humorous scenarios involving Stewart’s 10-year contribution to the business were graphically represented on paper. It’s amazing what can be achieved when the mischievous spirit of close colleagues is mixed with Dan’s creative capabilities. The result was an amazing caricature, beautifully designed and oozing irreverent humour which made Stewart (and the perpetrators) smile whenever they mention the piece of art. Dan was an absolute pleasure to work with and was very quick to grasp the ideas that were being circulated around the table. Undoubtedly the best farewell gift we ever offered to anyone at the company.

Just to say a big “Thank you” for the fantastic drawing you recently commissioned for us. All ten people who are in the commission were thrilled with how you had portrayed them. The lady whom we presented the commission to was leaving our office and we wanted her to have something she could remember us by. This you certainly achieved for us. The amount of detail that has gone into the commission is unbelievable. Considering you did all the work from ten photographs emailed to you is beyond belief. Thank you also for completing the work in quick time.

At SSE our priority is always safety, and to do this we decided to change our risk boards for our Onshore Wind Department. We set Daniel the difficult task of visualising the risks associated with our work and making them have a tremendous visual impact. From some (very) rough sketches, written descriptions and a few photos he managed to make some eye catching artwork that draws peoples attention, sparking discussion and thought. The artwork has been admired throughout the business for its detail and message. The standard of work is impressive and undoubtedly he will be getting used by us again in the very near future.

Dan’s artwork is fantastic. It’s creative, colourful and very festive – just what we needed for our Christmas card.
