Hand-Painted Cartoons

personalised characters and background from £105

Caricature of Flatmates

We create hand-painted cartoon caricatures from photos. This is a unique, personal service.

You simply send us a couple of photos along with some details or anecdotes about someone you know, and we'll turn them into your own caricature cartoon! Hand drawn and painted, framed, delivered and ready to offer as a gift to be treasured for years to come.

How does the service work?

  • You get in touch with Charlie via the “Order your Cartoon” page.
  • You supply a few photos (two or three will do), along with details and/or a story about the subject. We will be happy to prompt you with specific questions if required.
  • Charlie will get back to you within 24 hours of receiving your material, with his ideas for an original, personal and funny cartoon composition. You will be required to pay a deposit (roughly 30%) at this stage.
  • You can edit or add to the ideas.
  • Once we’ve agreed on the composition, we get to work on your cartoon! It is first drafted in pencil, and you are sent a draft copy to check and approve.
  • Once the draft is approved, the cartoon is drawn in Indian ink, and shaded and coloured with various inks and water colours.
  • When it is ready, we will invoice you for the remaining balance along with a scanned copy. Upon receipt of your payment (Credit Card via PayPal, or Bank Transfer) we will supply the cartoon, mounted and framed to your specific requirements.

Cartoon Process

How long does it take?

The whole process can take anything from 4 days (in an emergency!) to 3 weeks (when we're overloaded with orders). Of course, it is best to place your order as early as possible. We will agree on a delivery date when the order is placed.

How much does it cost?

Prices start at just £105 for an A4 size portrait. As each piece is individual, the price depends on your requirements. Therefore  we offer a no obligation quote service.

Cartoons and caricatures are a fun way of expressing someone's personality, and make an original gift that you can be sure they will not receive from anyone else.

Caricature from photos

The best way to really capture someone's physical features is by designing the caricature from photos provided by you once you place your order. The reason that we ask for two or three caricature photos is that in order to create the perfect caricature from photos, we need a few examples of that person to make sure that we capture them in the most accurate way possible. The caricatures from photo also give us an opportunity to select different angles at which to portray your chosen person, so that we can be sure to provide you with the best caricatures from photos.

Personality in caricature pictures

Ordering your caricature pictures is simple. Once you have obtained your caricature photos simply send them in to us with a little information about the person. For example what they do, what they like, things they like to talk about and so on. This gives us an idea about their unique personality and enables us to create caricatures from photo and other information which will be a clear and humorous reflection.
