Golfers are a popular ‘target’ for caricatures. I suppose when on is as devoted to an activity to have it almost a religion, those who know them know that a golfing gift caricature is a perfect idea.
Here are two recent golfing caricature orders draw from supplied photos, completed by Harry and John:

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!!

Don’t be a faddy-duddy when it comes to telling people to save the date for your wedding day….think outside the square and do it with a bit of pizazz like this couple did!
Not only was it a memorable way to announce the wedding date, it also presents the opportunity to set the scene a little….not that I think they were going to get married in front of a dumpster!

Often we have requests for group caricatures with a LOT of additional people. Generally (though not always) the price has the client settling for an artwork that is more price attractive.
Here is one example. How to include 143 other people in the artwork, without drawing each one and the cost going through the roof? The answer of course is a montage. This montage took six hours to assemble, rather like a jigsaw puzzle.
The art then proudly featured front and centre.
