Known as Fogueres de Sant Joan, in the Valencia region of Spain, between the 20-24 of June each year, Alicante comes alive with one of the most memorable street parties Spain has to offer.

Day 1 “La Plantà” is he day where each monument or effigy is erected and categorized by the judges. The children’s effigies are judged in the morning and the rest in the afternoon evening. Traditionally each statue has to be finished and erected in one day in order to avoid disqualification. The statues are erected by a group of people that have participated in the construction of the statues.

A fun way to use caricatures!

Evolution of a caricature

Here is a recent artwork completed by artist Harry.

The customer is a big fan of Aladdin and Jasmine and wrote:

“I want the girl in the photo wearing Jasmine’s costume and the male in the photo wearing Aladdin’s costume. I’ve sent those pictures also to show you which costumes i want. Please make Aladdin’s costume more white.”

This set of four images shows how a caricature evolves from an image and an idea to a final caricature. Click to enlarge :)

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!
