Whatever type of caricatures you are looking for, you are in the right place to order them from an artist with an established reputation for providing top quality group caricatures and individual personalised caricatures. Charlies Cartoons are drawn to your specifications, and ordering them is so easy.

All you have to do is supply two or three photographs of the person you want to be featured in the caricature as well as some information about them. This can be either an amusing story about them, or a couple of paragraphs which will let Charlie know something about their interests and personality, and he will incorporate this into the finished caricature.

Once you have placed your order, you will be able to see it before it is dispatched to you, and if you would like any adjustments made, just let Charlie know and he will make the alterations before it is finally sent to you. If you are thinking of having family caricatures drawn, or group caricatures featuring friends from your sports club – or perhaps just your drinking partners! – the same applies. Just send some photographs and a little information and leave the rest to Charlie, who will create great caricatures from photos.

Caricatures are ideal for birthday presents, and if you need one in a hurry because you have forgotten somebody’s big day, it’s possible to have a quick turnaround with your caricature. Have a look at some of the examples of Charlies work and you will see why he is recognised as one of the most talented caricature artists around.

When colleagues work closely together, it is common for close friendships to develop and it can be an emotional occasion when a popular workmate retires or leaves the company. It can almost feel like a family unit is being irreversibly changed forever.  Caricature gifts which either represent a portrait of the team member or colleague who is leaving, or the entire group or team together, can make for treasured possessions which will adorn the walls of recipients for many years to come.

Alternatively, colleagues are sometimes brought together as a cross-departmental team on a short term basis to work on a particular project, and bond particularly well. In cases like these, before each member returns to their particular department, a group caricature is an ideal parting present and permanent record of the group’s achievements. is most definitely the perfect place for premium professional caricature gifts, such as caricatures from photos.

Caricatures are perfect for all manner of occasions and celebrations. For example, wedding caricatures can capture the happy couple on that special day in an unusual and memorable manner and could even include the bridal party and all of the important guests. Wedding caricatures capture the personalities of guests, ambience of the venue and sense of occasion in a special way which is impossible to achieve, even by modern photography.Charlie can also draw caricature from photos.

A caricature can also be a great wedding or engagement gift for the happy couple, and can even represent them in their daily dress, reflecting their occupations or perhaps their sporting passions.  Group caricatures can prove to be excellent end of season gifts for sports teams, or even as celebrations of a group of colleagues who have worked closely on a long-term project. In these situations, team members may not have even known each other  socially beforehand. Yet, through the trials, tribulations and triumphs of teamwork, various personality traits, quirks, special talents and amusing anecdotes have come to reflect not only the stories of individual team members, but also its collective strength.

Group caricatures are also ideal for class or workplace reunions or anniversary celebrations of great sporting or professional achievements, and could even be updated on each occasion to reflect the fact that the group is maturing perfectly like a fine wine. Charlie always finds a way to capture that special group dynamic in his custom caricatures, and the results are invariably innovative and inspirational.
