The big event for February is of course Valentine’s Day. It is a time of year when there is a mad scramble for ordering or purchasing chocolates or flowers or sometimes even a gift of greater duration.
Every year here at Caricature King we see a steady increase in the ordering of caricatures. I use the term caricatures loosely, because for many of our artists, it is more a case of fun realistic art.
The humour comes not so much from any distortion or exaggeration, but through the fun portrayal of the people both in the clothing and the setting. Of course there is always the fascination of seeing how someone else interprets your face!
Here is a sweet example by artist Harry of a couple, one of whom had the foresight to bind their love for the other in the form of a custom artwork.
As you can see the inclusion of specific detail makes this gift extra special and one that can be proudly displayed on a wall for years to come…long after roses have wilted and chocolates have created extra curves!
As we are in Mid-January, this is an ideal time to be ordering your own romantic heirloom from one of our team of artists who can create the perfect Valentines Day gift.

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!!
