I wanted a unique gift for my boyfriend, something personal and after swaying with the idea of getting a pencil drawing... i thought id give it a go, I came across Mikes drawings on facebook and I thought they looked incredible, really detailed... so I decided to go for it with a photo I love and Im so glad I did, the detail is so out of this world and it just looks fantastic. My boyfriend couldnt believe it was a pencil drawing, he thought Id put a filter on the photo! I sent the photo over to Mike in October and asked for it to be ready for the start of December and Mike messaged me throughout and had the drawing ready to be approved and sent to me at the start of December. Thanks Mike.read more

Mike has a unique talent that no one else ive ever come across has. Unique.This man takes professional pictures with... pencils !!! Truly staggering bordering on genius baring in mind he is self taught . The picture he drew of me and my partner looks more lifelike than we do. My partner has not seen the portrait yet as it is her Birthday on Sunday but she will be blown away. A modest man to talk to but extremely approachable and very helpful. Will definitely be asking for his services again in the near future. A big thank you Mike and if I could I would have coloured in another 5 gold starsread more
Amazing and finished result was excellent (made me cry happy tears ) daughter was chuffed. Will definitely use again.

Beautiful portrait, excellent service, Mike kept me up to date with the progress, couldn't be happier,thank you.
Before I came across MCB Pencil Portraits I had already asked a few other people if they could do me a Portrait, the... Portrait I wanted was quite unusual so they had said no, but soon as I asked Mike he said yes, and I couldn't be more greatfull. The final Portrait was more than I could have imagined, it was perfect and just what I wanted. If anybody is ever wanting a Portait then I can't recommend Mike enough, he is great! Every bit of detail was perfect, such a talent to be able to do! Don't hesitate, as his work is truely amazing. Thank you for all your help Mike.read more
I had a portrait done of my mum & nan for Christmas by Mike and it was absolutely amazing. The photo mike had to work... with was over 30 years old and the results are just perfect! So pleased with the outcome and so was my mum! Had a slight problem with Royal Mail delivery (no fault of his!) but all was well and delivered before Christmas. Would order again in a heartbeat if needed. Thankyou so much for making it an extra special gift!read more
This was the 1st time I had used Mike and I am amazed!! I asked him to draw a portrait of my dog who is my angel from... heaven, he "Billy" a French bulldog"has kept me breathing . My hubby got him for me and I never thought he would get me one, he has never owned an animal and we've been married now for 27years!!!! So I thought that's that!...but he spoils him rotten and gets away with anything he just gives him 'That Look"!! Which Mike has captured in great detail..So a huge thank you to Mike my hubby will love it...can't wait to see his face Christmas morning ....I will definitely contact Mike again and definitely recommend him....Merry Christmasread more

I commissioned a framed portrait to present to a colleague as a farewell gift on behalf of 158 Provost Company Royal... Military Police. Having received the portrait, we were genuinely amazed at the accuracy of the image. He truly managed to capture it perfectly. Utterly professional, Mike was in contact with us throughout the process and delivered exactly on time, despite the tight deadline requested by us. MCB Portraits cannot come more highly recommended.read more

I asked mike to draw me a pencil portrait. I didn't even asked for him to send me a picture before he sent it to me I... said surprise me with it. Because I read all of his reviews and they were great I've got to say when it arrived I was speechless what an amazing artist Mike is!!! I would recommend him to anyone!read more
I asked Mike to draw a portrait of my wife's dog for her birthday. It arrived today and is better than a photograph! So... pleased with it and inexpensive too. Mike is a great communicator and let's you know how it's going from day one. Super happy with the service and the drawing.read more
I have had two pencil drawings done from Mike - one of my dog and one of my Nan's cottage. He has really captured the... likeness of my dog and he has even included the glint in his eye. Since having the portrait done, he has sadly passed away but it is a beautiful reminder of him! The detail in the cottage is absolutely breathtaking. There was quite a lot of garden scenery but he has managed to capture every single bit of detail, which I imagine was very difficult. For the hours and effort that Mike must put into the drawings, the price is very reasonable! I would highly recommend MCB portraits to anyone and will definitely be using Mike again in the future.read more
