When is a caricature not a piece of art?

This is a bit of a conundrum question because first we need to establish that a caricature is in fact a piece of art.

It is interesting that people will often depreciate a caricature, not comparing it to say a portrait or other artwork. In fact many caricatures take just as long and in some cases a bit longer owing to the thought that is placed into the selection of photos to use as the basis for the art and the thought and work to create the often additional inclusions of the artwork.

So with that behind us, let me tell you when a caricature is NOT a piece of art.

It all has to do with the final use. In the case of Caricature King caricatures it is important to think of them as not a piece of art (when in fact they are) but as something else….

They are in fact an emotion. Like Dr Who traveling in time, so the emotion of a caricature is both subtle and complex and interspersed over a period of time.

> Time-frame one. The design stage is when emotion of a number of people is involved. First, once the decision to create a caricature is made, there is the thought as to what to include in it. Here there is excitement, discovery and creativity both on the part of the person ordering the caricature, but also the team at Caricature King who often help the customer realize hidden aspects, which are used to add extra subtlety and complexity to the art.

> Time-frame two. The joy of seeing the finished product and anticipation of the giving. This stage maybe be shared with family or work colleagues adding to the pensive excitement!

> Time-frame three. The giving. Here there is a wide range of emotions from nervous excitement, discovery, uncertainty, amazement, joy expressed as laughter, relief, congratulation (to the person who’s wonderful idea it was!) and happiness.

Yes, a caricature is an emotional investment in a gift. This cannot be matched by just about any other gift because a caricature is unique, it s personal, it shows a level of thought and ingenuity that it recognized and appreciated by the recipient.

So is a caricature a piece of art? Of course, but it is soooo much more!

Getting into the new year – caricatures here we come!!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas/New Year break. In some parts of the world it seems weather was the greatest focus, even overshadowing gifts and get-togethers.

So the New Year brings with it renewed hope and a renewed focus on many things, including gifts! At this time of year??

While the big gift giving time seems to be behind us, the early part of the year also presents many gift-giving opportunities.

Often this come from people retiring or moving jobs – caricatures provide wonderful scope for a truly personalised gift that cannot be matched by anything else. How else can you include someone’s traits, quirks, interests and life influences all in one gift?

Our caricatures are total custom. We don’t start with templates, though some customers say a scene just like the one on the artist’s sample page.

And why do people love getting caricatures? Interestingly it seems they like to see how other people see them. They like the bit of quirkiness, and the thought that has often gone into the extra elements to make a good picture great!

So think about who you can give a caricature gift to this year – the opportunities are endless…birthdays, weddings, invitations, retirement, moving job, staff profile pics…

Here is a small selection of some recent work that shows the awesome diversity of styles we can provide to suit everyone!

Pilot caricature picture

Here is a fun caricature by artist Zalo.

The subject, Brian like to fly his gyrocopter. As he is the pilot, his friends thought it would be great fun to see him in his Captain’s uniform!!

This image shows how nice a black and white caricate can be. It looked really good as a 16×20 poster print.
