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!

Happy 60th birthday caricature

Here is a beaut 60th birthday caricature created by artist George.

The instructions were quite simple – the ‘victim’ like his footy team so what better way than to show him in his favorite teams outfit.

If you have a friend or relative with a birthday coming up, think about a caricature as a gift!

Great fancy dress caricature

The great thing about getting a custom caricature drawn is you can portray anything you want.

Just as well, because this gift caricature has the couple dressed in fancy dress as a pimp and pro.

The work was completed by artist John and resulted in a wonderful image that was well received!

Family caricature for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day might be still eight weeks away, but now is the time to be thinking about a family caricature for a Mother’s Day Gift idea.

Rather than getting everyone to try and sit still, our artists can work from several photos who produce a wonderful keepsake.

Have a look at this great example.

Caricature gift for young film-maker

Its a nice thing when siblings recognise the achievements for their kids, and this was the case when student Joshua Walsh reached the finals of the San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival for his film Pencil Town.

The caricature was also denoting Joshua’s high school graduation plus including aspects of his family, who he holds dear and his keen interest in photography.

Artist Zalo was given the task of bringing this project to life and here is the result (the banner is added later).
