Retirement caricature

Retirement gift are a great time to think about caricatures because caricature make such great gifts for people who are retiring.

The reason is you can include elements that personalize the image – in fact every image is custom created from scratch.

In this example the man retiring was involved in ship engineering. So he has a picture of the ship he was first involved with on the wall. Plus he has “Steam Engineering” on the spine of the book beside him as his speciality is that type of marine power plant. In addition a specific nameplate on his desk and his famous reference library behind.

So why not browse more retirement caricatures for ideas and browse our artists to see who’s style you like best!

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!

Football player caricature

We have just loaded a photo sent in by a customer of their 21 year-old son with the caricature they have made for his birthday.

The customer said:

Here’s a couple of pictures of Perrin with his caricature.
I had the guys in my design section at work blow one up on the plotter which turned out a treat.  The one you had printed for us in Sydney we had framed and it looks spectacular.
Suffice to say he was ecstatic with his caricature, it only took minutes before it was on facebook!
I don’t know if they’re good enough for you to publish, but feel free to do so if you think they are.
Once again many thanks in making our sons 21 memorable!
