Here is a wonderful caricature of a lady called Janet who is a volunteer guide at a wildlife park in Victoria.
The customer told us of her outgoing and bubbly personality and how much she loves her work and so needed to portray the wildlife park workplace, plus her great personality.
The art was a birthday gift and her friends ordered this caricature drawn by artist Harry.
Harry did a pencil sketch draft first and on approval moved onto the final art.
The customer used our optional framing service and so we were able to deliver the complete package.
Caricatures like this make wonderful birthday, retirement wedding, graduation and anniversary gifts and are well received by those who receive them.

Recording well-wisher’s messages at a wedding is a great thing to do. But instead of a plain old guest book that will sit in a drawer, why not look at an idea that can be proudly displayed on a wall and enjoyed for years to come?
This can be achieved using a caricature as a framed print with an extra wide mat.
Here is an example:
- wedding sign in board example
As you can see there is plenty of space for signatures.
We offer this as an option to your caricature order – the width of the matting and the size of the print are flexible, so if you are having more or less guests, then this is easily catered for. Just ask and we will provide a price based on your needs.
The framed print is shipped ready to unwrap and use – the glass is packed behind so after the event it can easily be placed into its correct position.
This idea works great for engagement parties, graduations, Christenings, or any other event where people might like to leave their best wishes.

I was in the USA recently and one thing struck me about California – warnings…..
Everything seemed to have a warning notice posted to it. I guess in the most litigious state in the most litigious nation it is the be expected.
So I thought it only fair to post a warning about our caricatures. Here goes:
WARNING – CARICATURES
You are advised that the ordering and presentation of a caricature as a gift in whatever form that features the person or persons for whom the gift is intended is likely to cause many of the following effects:
- A feeling of goodwill from the recipient towards the giver as an individual or group
- Look of amazement on the face of the recipient
- Cheers and clapping amongst the group
Caricature King nor its artists can in no way can be help responsible for the emotional satisfaction that will come from your decision to order a caricature and subsequently present it as a gift.
Here is an example:
So don’t say we did not warn you – caricatures do make great gifts and the giving is a wonderful and memorable occasion!!

There is sometimes speculation that a caricature produced using digital art tools is not as good as one used using the traditional pen and crayon.
But you only have to see this caricature sent to us by one of our clients to see just how fantastic they look!
This caricature uses a black mat and a wooden frame (this was framed by the customer – although we do offer framing services for US and AUS customers).
Now is a great time to be ordering for Christmas gifts, or for those who are retiring from the workplace at the end of the year.
