I was going to title this post “Why your Mother was Wrong when she Stopped you Pulling Faces in Family Photos”. Bit long, but I still have the same thing to say…a straight face is a bad and even worse, a Boring face.
A smile is better, but when it comes to the world of humorous art, pulling a funny face for your photo makes a great caricature. What we don’t want are passport or drivers licence style expressions. Keep those for your morgue photos.
Here is a recent example created by Harry, there the client’s staff rose to the occasion and were not only willing but eager to have their photos taken with wacky expressions!!
Sure as this was a caricature of the guys doing the haka meant they were more inclined to pull a face in front of the camera, but having some fun expressions really opens up the opportunity for something truly creative.
Next time you are wanting a fun caricature for a family caricature (oh WOW, couldn’t we have some fun!) retirement, birthday, anniversary, or even wedding invitation (no better time to pull a face) remember, have fun!!
Questions or comment, please let me know

Retirement gift are a great time to think about caricatures because caricature make such great gifts for people who are retiring.
The reason is you can include elements that personalize the image – in fact every image is custom created from scratch.
In this example the man retiring was involved in ship engineering. So he has a picture of the ship he was first involved with on the wall. Plus he has “Steam Engineering” on the spine of the book beside him as his speciality is that type of marine power plant. In addition a specific nameplate on his desk and his famous reference library behind.
So why not browse more retirement caricatures for ideas and browse our artists to see who’s style you like best!
