Caricatures are a great personalized one-of-a-kind gift, whether it’s for a friend’s birthday, Dad on Father’s Day, or a way to say “thank you” to a co-worker who is leaving the department or retiring from the company.
I create caricatures digitally, which means that I provide the final artwork to you as a link to download. You can then print the file at home or take it to a print service center and have it printed on any type of paper you like. I can also provide the final art in any format you choose (jpg, PDF, PowerPoint, etc). Digital artwork has several benefits — I can create it in any size you want, get it done faster, and deliver it instantly upon completion!
How I Work…
You provide me with reference photos of the person or people you want caricatured, along with reference photos for any additional specifics required (for example, a photo of a pet or company logo). If you have any sort of theme in mind, let me know that too.
Good reference photos = good caricature!
- The more photos, the better! It’s better to get too many photos than a couple that are hard to see.
- Good lighting and clarity is important to get a likeness.
- Larger sized photos are better for seeing details.
For the first step, I’ll do a rough sketch and send it to you for feedback. Generally, if provided with enough good photo reference, I can get a good likeness. After the rough sketch is approved, I will ink and color the illustration.
When the caricature is finished, I’ll provide you a link to download the image. If you prefer, I can also burn it to a disc and mail it.
I accept payment via PayPal, check, or via my Intuit invoicing service. Cost is dependent on the complexity of the illustration and the requested deadline.
