I want a caricature of a group, but I’m worried about the price…

A common question is how to make large group caricatures more affordable, because yes price can run away pretty darned quickly (not say of course that this does not mean they are not excellent value for money!)

By the time you have 10 or more people in a  group it is really time to be thinking creatively.

Yes there is a solution!!

This is where the scene and the overall message becomes the influencing factor.

First up who MUST be full body? Is there a team leader, coach or captain that means they should be (or even a couple of key players).

Next what is the theme? This could be related to the activity and provides the infrastructure for hiding bodies. Think, office or other workplace, vehicle of some sort or even natural surroundings.

What this does is bases the price predominantly on head and shoulders rather than full body.

Here are some examples (click for slightly bigger)

 

Then there is also integration with an existing photo that can also work well (the images below are only quick mock-ups). All you need to do is arrange the people with the view to where the caricatured person/people might fit in. (Click for slightly bigger).

Editorial cartoon

Just to throw some other art content into the mix, here is an editorial cartoon I came across in a newspaper in the USA. I guess it could have featured in a newspaper in many countries around the world.

It is interesting the use of claws and the small head indicating limited intelligence. Art can be a powerful transmitter of messages.
