Caricature in Harry Potter style playing Quidditch!

Know someone who loves Harry Potter books or films and fancies themselves as a Numbus2000 pilot, or even a Quidditch player (which is very popular game at universities around the world), then you can order something like this (design of course to your own desire!)

In this case the customer supplied pictures of the person and also a couple of pictures of Quidditch and broom flying from Google images to use as a guide to have their custom caricature created.

The result – the perfect birthday gift!

We can of course portray people as any movie character!

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.

Caricature of Alligator man of the bayou

Here is a fun caricature by Keimo, based loosely on the Paul Hogan character Crocodile Dundee.

In this case the customer provided the background image  of a bayou for the art  of the man in an alligator skin jacket to sit on perfectly!

Keimo’s art is notable for its great rendering, and levels of exaggeration, though this example is probably the least exaggerated of what he does. While not completely evident in this example, there is great aspects of deatil, like the smoke from the cigarette, the patterning of the jacket and the detail in they eys.  See more of Keimo’s works here
