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!!
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

Often we have requests for group caricatures with a LOT of additional people. Generally (though not always) the price has the client settling for an artwork that is more price attractive.
Here is one example. How to include 143 other people in the artwork, without drawing each one and the cost going through the roof? The answer of course is a montage. This montage took six hours to assemble, rather like a jigsaw puzzle.
The art then proudly featured front and centre.
The artist was Eddie

Here is another fun retirement gift caricature, this time a person retiring from a medical facility.
The customer says:
“Thank you so much. She loved it!! (and so did everyone else)

In any workplace, there are those that do, and those who excel. What better way of immortalizing the hero’s of the workplace that with a superhero caricature!
Here is a great example of superheros, in this case by John, of what can be done (singly or in a group). We can style on an existing superhero or you can invent your own!
