Charlies Cartoons wedding caricatures

What do you buy the couple who have everything? When it comes to getting the perfect wedding gift, it can be tricky to come up with something that is at the same time original, on budget and will be something the happy couple will treasure.

It’s the same when someone is retiring, or leaving your workplace – you want a gift you know is personal and memorable. Charlie’s Cartoons can provide the perfect solution in the form of wedding caricatures, group caricatures and family caricatures. Working from caricature photos that you provide – usually two or three is sufficient – Charlie comes up with an idea for caricature portraits of your friends, families and loved ones that will amuse and delight them.

Everyone would love to have their own caricatures, because they can hang on the wall for years as enjoyable memories. Caricature portraits are the most personal gift you can buy – if you think the person you are buying a gift for would not like caricature pictures of themselves, get the whole family portrayed. We can also provide caricatures from photos.

It takes just a couple of weeks, often less, to get custom caricatures created by Charlie, who will then provide them finished in inks and water colours for full effect. Charlie’s Cartoons also send the finished items to you mounted and framed as you wish – and you may be surprised at the low cost of all this skill and expertise.

Give truly personal gifts – get them personalised caricatures!

Charlies Cartoons cartoon caricatures

People love cartoons – and seeing themselves as cartoon caricatures is irresistible!

Drawing cartoon caricatures is a real skill, though, and not many artists truly have the gift. Charlie of Charlie’s Cartoons found out that he was a talented cartoonist at an early age, and has made the day of thousands of people since then with his caricature cartoons.

Charlie creates caricature from photos, which customers supply to him – two or three are usually enough. He combines the caricature photos, which give him the physical attributes of the person or people to be caricatured, with information that you provide if you wish. This could be a funny story about the person who will receive the caricature, or information about they things they love – maybe football, or embroidery, or walking the dog in the woods.

Caricature cartoons take a lot of care to create, but Charlie can create your gift in up to three weeks. Once you’ve agreed a theme to the customer caricatures, he gets to work to drawn the caricature pictures first in pencil and then in ink.

What makes these caricature gifts something to treasure for years is the quality of the artistry that goes into them – and of course, they are mounted and framed to your own specification, so the person you are buying them for can hang them on the wall for years. Caricature gifts are unique to everyone.

We all spend a lot of time thinking about the perfect gift – and a caricature from photos certainly presses all the buttons.

There are times when you need to find a gift for someone – be it a friend, relative or partner – but you just have no idea what to get them. Of course, there are always various safety nets (vouchers, cash, chocolates, wine) which people are more than happy to receive.

But these may not seem like enough. If you really care for someone, then you will most likely want them to feel that you put some real thought into a gift. If you are struggling to find something you know they will love, why not try caricatures?

Charlies Cartoons personalised caricatures

Personalised caricatures have been around in one form or another for centuries – you could even argue that the ancient Egyptians were a dab hand at this kind of pictorial art. Charlie’s Cartoons haven’t been around for quite that long, of course, but we’ve already found out that cartoon caricatures are an immensely popular gift. It’s not surprising, when you think about it – they say that with gifts it’s the thought that counts, and caricature gifts are so personal they show a lot of care and consideration.

That’s not to say they take forever to produce. Charlie can produce a caricature from photos provided by yourself in a timeframe ranging from three days (in emergencies!) to three weeks, so your caricature gifts can be with you in plenty of time for your big occasion.

You can provide a story along with your caricature pictures if you wish, which gives Charlie a little extra material to work with – perhaps the person you are buying a gift for is a keen golfer, or once met somebody famous….Charlie can even take a number of separate photos and compile family caricatures or group caricatures so you can all be in on the gift together.

Once you’ve sent your pictures, Charlie contacts you in 24 hours with an idea for the caricature, which you can edit or change. From there, the artistry begins, resulting in a finished cartoon, mounted and framed to your specific requirements. It’s a thoughtful gift that will continue to delight the recipient for years.

Charlies Cartoons caricature cartoons

When it comes to choosing the perfect gift, most of us look for something that is personal, special and appropriate to the person we are buying it for. That’s not easy – and that’s where Charlie’s Cartoons can help.

Because after all – what could be more personal than caricature cartoons of the people you wish to surprise with a gift? Caricature portraits take a photo of your friend, colleague or relative and exaggerate the main features with good humour until you have warm and charming caricature pictures of them.

We know from our customers that they absolutely love them – and because we supply our caricature pictures carefully framed, they can hang them on the wall for years. Caricature gifts are special because they are completely individual. It takes an expert to create them, of course – our artist Charlie has been creating caricature portraits since he was just a few years old, so he certainly has years of great experience!

Custom caricatures make excellent gifts for many occasions. For instance, if your friends are getting married, you could present them with wedding caricatures of their big day. Or perhaps someone well-liked is leaving work – we can create group caricatures of everyone in the office so he or she has a permanent memory of the friends left behind.

Artist Charlie needs only a few photographs to work from, and possibly a story about the person you wish to caricature. The result is a custom-made gift that will continue to delight for years – well worth the money.
