Caricature Artist to Draw Caricatures from Family Photos

Filed under: Uncategorized — Charlie Anson @ 11:32 am

I’ve recently received a wave of orders of people just wanting a family cartoon – customers wanting to commission a caricature artist to produce one big (usually a3 or a2) caricature from photo portraits of their family. So these aren’t for any particular individual – they’re just a gift for the family in general. A caricature from photo, that will hand over the mantelpiece for years and years, and remind everyone of the good times, of the family unit, even when times are tough.

But anyway, enough romantic harping on. What if you DO need to commission a caricature artist to do something for a specific person? The most common commissions tend to be gifts for husbands. Gifts for husbands can be very difficult to procure – a bit like gifts for dads! (And yes, I know, they’re often the same thing…)

The thing is, what sort of effect do you want to have on your husband? Do you want him to feel like you’ve invested every last penny you had? Well, probably not. Especially in these cash-strapped times, aren’t you better off both saving for your kids’ education, the mortgage, and so on? On the other hand, perhaps gifts for husbands should reflect something more personal: How much you know him… and a shared sense of humour. That is what a caricature from photo portraits of the man himself can do. A caricature from photo material can really sum a person up. Frame it, and you’re onto a winner for under 150 quid.

Next step is getting the right caricature artist to do this for you. The truth is, Charlie’s Cartoons is just one of many, and to get just the right caricature from photo, you’re best off browsing the web for just the right person or company… But of course, of all those caricature from photo providers, I think we’ve got the edge J
