A new development at Caricature King has been the development of a new ‘product’ call replace-your-face.
Basically what this means is you can make use of an existing body or theme and have your (or someone else’s) face’s drawn into the image.
This means that you can get a full body or a scene style job done at a much cheaper price.
You can see the page here – and ordering is super easy, just click the order link under the image you like!
one of many possibilities

Having a great photograph of all the extended family is something that is often hard, if not impossible to achieve. From a family history perspective, getting an image with everyone together is important.
But the truth is that family members live far away, or cannot all get together for the photo. If they can Aunty Mavis has fallen asleep, the kids are distracted and looking in the wrong direction and baby Joe is crying and Mom Lucy is looking frazzled!!
One option is to invest in something special and have a family caricature created. This has many benefits and can achieve things not possible in a photo:
- You can include everyone, even if they are far away – simply by having a photo of them is enough to have them included and that photo can be taken at your leisure so it shows people how you want them to be shown!
- Through the addition of props, you can show what their interest is, or something that is associated with them like their occupation.
- You can get good poses for people as required.
- By supplying photos of people with a desired expression, you can create unique interactions between family members, like brothers sharing a joke, or Granny pointing and smiling at something one of the kids is doing.
- Things can be as formal or informal as you wish.
We have some examples of family caricatures of our group caricatures page
Family caricature by artist George
The final digital product is easily shared around the family, and unlike a professional portrait photographer, you can make as many copies as you like without paying any more.
If you are interested in having a family caricature drawn, please contact Matt via our contact page (or use the live chat tool to the left) for pricing.

Christmas is also a time of renewal – people have a chance to pause, if only briefly to think about the future, about reprioritizing aspects of life and business.
It is also a time when we get work related to reimaging of businesses – a new look, a logo or some other form of branding through caricature (or even our logo service).
Many people are getting ready to start their new businesses, be they online or bricks and mortar.
So now is a great time to look at how a caricature can fit into your business. Maybe its time to be looking at employee rewards (after all they are the backbone of any business), or looking at a great leaving gift for those who have decided that they turning over of a new year is also a great time to also turn the page in their lives.
Have a browse of the artists on the site and and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

I know I am always asking customers and potential customers to give the caricature artists plenty of lead time – but sometimes, things just ‘happen’, like perfect synchronicity….
Like at 10pm my time, I was finishing a few things off when on the live chat someone asked if we could do a black and white caricature based on a description only. It was for t-shirts for a girls soccer team.
As luck would have it, artist Zalo was online, late Friday afternoon his time and a quick question via MSN and yes he could do it.
Give the customer the page to order from and the order was in and in 60 MINUTES the caricature was on the email back to the client (due to time constraints no draft on this occasion).
Sometimes things just happen, but of course longer is always better.
Here is the result. Cute, but angry….

I don’t know if you are like me and get a pile of mundane cards in the weeks before Christmas.
Apart from the percentage that are identical on the outside (and some even appear to be almost identical on the inside!) most are uninspiring – send….well I guess because that’s what we do at this time of year.
But Greeting cards are a way to renew relationships, with personal acquaintances, relatives and on the commercial angle, business.
What better way to create an impression, to cut through the sea of stack standard cards than to have your own custom cards.
Sound hard? Well its not. Get a caricature created (we size it up and everything and even put on the text you want) and then have it printed using our print partner (they even supply the envelopes).
Easy – all you have to do is write your personal note inside each one and you have created a memorable moment for each and every person who receives one.
