Caricature of a man who worked at Starbucks

A customer contacted me about getting a caricature gift for a man who was a worker  at Starbucks and who, after a couple of years diligent work, was leaving.

This guy was evidently a great employee, had a bit of fun attitude and so they wanted to provide a leaving gift that would remind him of his days at Starbucks.

The resulting caricature art of this Starbucks guy is the gift they gave. What a great idea….and all we needed was a photo to create this custom art gift.

Art by caricaturist  Harry who can do work for you too!

Caricatures for your car

In some localities it is possible to have a custom plate displayed on the front of your car.

Here is an example of a plate with art by artist George.

If you have pimped your ride, why not think of a caricature as the finishing touch!

1st Anniversary wedding caricature

The first anniversary of a wedding is an important milestone in the marriage. What better way to mark this important date than with a fun caricature!

The art is by John.

Customer said “Thank you so much for the picture both me and my husband love it!!”

Almost a century of winning art

The winners of the Archibald Prize (a major art prize in Australia) from 1921 to 2013

Interesting seeing the changing styles over time. To items of note:

1. How few women are featured

2. These pieces are worth tens of thousands of dollars. In many cases you can get equally beautiful work on  Caricature King for less than a hundred bucks….

Thank those who volunteer in your organisation or community

Many aspects of our daily lives are impacted by volunteers. They are pervasive and while they touch the lives of some in invisible ways, for others life would be inextricably harder without their help.

Look around: in hospitals, libraries, schools, organizations, on the streets, in churches, helping the old and the young and everyone in between – and yes even you and I in ways we may not even recognize and possibly on a daily basis.

Volunteer Week, celebrating the work of volunteers is being celebrated around the world very soon. Here are a few dates:

USA and Canada – 6-12 AprilAustralia -12-18 May
UK – 1-7 June

Why not recognize a volunteer you know by giving then a wonderful caricature that encompasses their actions and giving.

If you have not tried volunteering, give it a go, it is very rewarding :)
