I draw and watercolour caricatures. These make unique and personal gifts for birthdays, anniversaries, retirements, weddings, events, corporate teams, sports teams, with as much or as little detail as you wish - you name it and I will draw it.
I prepare these from photographs and a list of personal characteristics, hobbies, likes, dislikes, unusual or memorable events, experiences, in fact the more quirks the better! I will weave these characteristics together to make a one-off personal cartoon. Any size, from A5 to BIG.
These make wonderful personal gifts, and can be a simple card or a "This is Your Life" in cartoon. The detailed paintings take a lot of time to research and prepare, so please give me as much advance notice as possible.
Below is a slideshow of a few examples, with some different levels of detail. I hope you enjoying browsing.
The most popular caricatures are ink and watercolour paintings, on watercolour board. You will receive the original, not a print.
Mounted on off-white card, ready for framing.
Sized to fit standard size frames
14” x 11” or 16” x 12”.
I can also provide black and white, and have produced larger artwork, so if you have anything special in mind, please ask.
I require good quality, close-up, smiley photographs, face not hidden by sunglasses etc. A list of interests, job, hobbies, memorable events, likes and dislikes, personality quirks... in fact anything you want drawn or referenced in a detailed painting.
Groups of people, for example a football team, or Board of Directors, can be drawn at a larger size.
I do not frame, but if you supply a frame, I will happily frame and seal for you.
