Graduating class caricatures!

What better way to end the high school school year than with an awesome gift from your teacher!

Well this is what one Danish teacher decided to do for her class – a caricature of each student!

By access some cool images of the students these original and fun artworks were created.

Printed locally and with the art in digital form, I am sure they are already gracing some social media profiles!

The art was completed by Keimo who was given ‘free reign’ on interpretation and came up with these amazing images!

Artist George – recent caricatures

Artist George is our original artist, having been with us since 2005. As you can see from the samples below he has a totally unique style – in the past decade I’ve not seen anyone else’s art style like his.

While the caricature style is leaning towards the realistic, there are subtle aspects that make the style quirky, yet still kind to the subject and so appealing for use as gifts for a wide range of gifting opportunities.

As you can see his output ranges from head and shoulders to full body with props (and backgrounds, though not seen here.

Black and white caricature, simple but powerful

There is the saying that less is more. This is the case with this simple but powerful black and white head and shoulders caricature by Shane.

Positive and negative space creates an impactful fun image ideal to print on a tshirt or coffee mug, plus of course for social media avatar or email signatures, or even to print and put on the wall.

Caricature of Caricature King!

Hi, Matt from Caricature King here. I just thought I would share this great caricature that artist Eddie did of me, as celebration of me shaving off my beard of 35 years for a charity fundraiser.

It was a surprise – just an email turned up with YOU as the subject line. Lucky I did not delete it thinking it was from one of those robot emailers….

Bottom line is I love it and did so from the moment I saw it. It was a reminder of the reaction people get when they see their gift caricature, laughter, amazement and joy.

Yes laughter, amazement and joy is what you give when you give a caricature, in addition to great art. You will be fondly remembered as the giver of joy….what more could you want :)

Thanks Eddie

Getting into the new year – caricatures here we come!!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas/New Year break. In some parts of the world it seems weather was the greatest focus, even overshadowing gifts and get-togethers.

So the New Year brings with it renewed hope and a renewed focus on many things, including gifts! At this time of year??

While the big gift giving time seems to be behind us, the early part of the year also presents many gift-giving opportunities.

Often this come from people retiring or moving jobs – caricatures provide wonderful scope for a truly personalised gift that cannot be matched by anything else. How else can you include someone’s traits, quirks, interests and life influences all in one gift?

Our caricatures are total custom. We don’t start with templates, though some customers say a scene just like the one on the artist’s sample page.

And why do people love getting caricatures? Interestingly it seems they like to see how other people see them. They like the bit of quirkiness, and the thought that has often gone into the extra elements to make a good picture great!

So think about who you can give a caricature gift to this year – the opportunities are endless…birthdays, weddings, invitations, retirement, moving job, staff profile pics…

Here is a small selection of some recent work that shows the awesome diversity of styles we can provide to suit everyone!
