Almost a century of winning art

The winners of the Archibald Prize (a major art prize in Australia) from 1921 to 2013

Interesting seeing the changing styles over time. To items of note:

1. How few women are featured

2. These pieces are worth tens of thousands of dollars. In many cases you can get equally beautiful work onĀ  Caricature King for less than a hundred bucks….

New artist Keimo

Announcing new caricature artist Keimo has joined the team!

TakingĀ  a classic Keimo approach, exhibits the true caricature style of exaggeration of notable features of a person’s face. Is it mean or horrid or just a wonderful freedom of artistic expression!

As you can see, Keimo works wonders, undertaking work in photoshop to paint his subjects in amazing rendering. Some may look just like photos, but no, all expertly digitally painted!

Keimo specializes in head and shoulders. See more

Thank those who volunteer in your organisation or community

Many aspects of our daily lives are impacted by volunteers. They are pervasive and while they touch the lives of some in invisible ways, for others life would be inextricably harder without their help.

Look around: in hospitals, libraries, schools, organizations, on the streets, in churches, helping the old and the young and everyone in between – and yes even you and I in ways we may not even recognize and possibly on a daily basis.

Volunteer Week, celebrating the work of volunteers is being celebrated around the world very soon. Here are a few dates:

USA and Canada – 6-12 AprilAustralia -12-18 May
UK – 1-7 June

Why not recognize a volunteer you know by giving then a wonderful caricature that encompasses their actions and giving.

If you have not tried volunteering, give it a go, it is very rewarding :)

Our artists are ready to create a wonderful gift caricature. Click here to browse their samples and order online.
