Why a straight face is a bad face

I was going to title this post “Why your Mother was Wrong when she Stopped you Pulling Faces in Family Photos”. Bit long, but I still have the same thing to say…a straight face is a bad and even worse, a Boring face.

A smile is better, but when it comes to the world of humorous art, pulling a funny face for your photo makes a great caricature. What we don’t want are passport or drivers licence style expressions. Keep those for your morgue photos.

Here is a recent example created by Harry, there the client’s staff rose to the occasion and were not only willing but eager to have their photos taken with wacky expressions!!

haka wariior dance caricature picture Sure as this was a caricature of the guys doing the haka meant they were more inclined to pull a face in front of the camera, but having some fun expressions really opens up the opportunity for something truly creative.

Next time you are wanting a fun caricature for a family caricature (oh WOW, couldn’t we have some fun!) retirement, birthday, anniversary, or even wedding invitation (no better time to pull a face) remember, have fun!!

Questions or comment, please let me know :)

Wow — It’s truly awesome!  So neat!  All of the hard work and talent and kind attention you and Harry gave to this project is tremendously appreciated.  This will be such a special gift.
We’re going to print it locally this week for our weekend birthday event.  So excited to share it with everyone!

Policeman retirement caricature – by George!

What better gift for a retiring police Captain than a custom caricature!

Here we see an excellent example created by artist George. The client provided images of the Station  and the car. George also included the name of the Captain on the licence plate.  Further personalized wording (not shown here) was also included in front of the car. A fitting gift that recognised years of service for this distinguished police officer!

If you need a retirement caricature, artist George or any of our other artists can create a custom artwork for a very reasonable price.

We also provide a range of optional professional printing services as well.
