A Gift With a Difference

If you have a friend with a great sense of humour and you want to find them the perfect gift, caricature portraits are an unusual and inspired idea. The word ‘caricature’ might conjure in your mind a crowded beach front with a row of artists sketching uncomfortable looking tourists, but rest assured that in reality the days when the sea side was the only place you could get a caricature drawn are gone.

These days you can find on-line services offering a whole range of personalised caricatures, and you won’t need to sit in front of a crowd of onlookers as they’re drawn – this means you can totally surprise a friend or relative with a caricature as a gift. All you need are a few good photos, a little bit of time to browse the internet and find a service like Charlie’s Cartoons.

Charlie’s Cartoons is a personal service offering caricature portraits that are not only great quality but couldn’t be easier to order.  With an on-line service like Charlie’s, all you need to do is send a few photos with some supporting information about the friend or relative for whom the caricature is intended. Once you’ve fine tuned your request the result, which is always hand drawn and painted, will be delivered to you framed and ready to go. The beauty of such services lies in the ability to create unique artwork that looks exactly as you want it to look: you’ll see the idea for the finished caricature before its drawn so you can make comments and changes to ensure that you’re totally happy with the finished gift.

Caricature portraits are fun, memorable and thoughtful, plus they make for a very personal present – as you go through the design process you can ensure that they really reflect the personality and style of the person in question, then see the surprise and delight on their face as they open their present and see their caricatures looking back.
