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!!

One of the great things about our artists is their versatility. Unlike some other caricature sites where they are locked into one style (and even artists locked into the one style,) our caricature artists can turn their hand to most things. This is a sign of a real professional. No dummying it with software gimmicks.
Here is a job recently completed by Eddie. The client has a caricature done many years ago of his father and wanted one of his mother to match it. No only the angular style, but importantly the crayon look and style of paper.
Using his knowledge and experience, Eddie was able to create a caricature that fitted the bill perfectly using DIGITAL techniques allowing rapid delivery.

Wedding are a wonderful time and one that is sometimes captured with something a bit unique!
Here is a selection of wedding caricatures completed by artist Shane.

Wedding caricatures make great keepsakes at the time and even a great idea for a 1st anniversary gift (paper – not that you have to limit yourself to paper as an idea, there are also Tshirts, mugs, calendars and even jigsaw puzzles and playing cards are among the varied items that can be graced with a caricature.)

At Caricature King one of the great aspects of having a team of experienced artists is that they are all so talented.
This means that not only can they draw caricatures, but they can also do work in other genres – including portraits.
There are times when a caricature is not the best way to go for a gift or presentation, while a portrait would be perfect.
For this reason we have decided to have a page specifically for portraits.
These will be idea for formal graduation, family milestone, professional gift etc.
Our artists can assemble people into formal poses working from several photos – even black and white photos, so an unsuitable photo can be used to create a wonderful piece of art!
