Here’s a selection of live caricatures from a wedding in the Radisson Blu Hotel Limerick from the weekend! It’s so great to be almost back to normal at weddings and the buzz these days is just amazing. So much fun with these people on Saturday and it’s clear that people are loving being able to see each other in numbers again. Special thanks to Sian and the team in the Radisson for making me feel so welcome too. Looking forward to doing more weddings down there!
In a change to the regular signing board wedding gear I got to draw this couple in their fire-fighting protective clothing! Whenever their beepers go off they hop on their bikes to get to the fire station so thought it would be fun to have them on a tandem bike belting along as their beepers go off! I gave them a glass of champagne of course as it was their wedding day. They’ve both got military backgrounds as well hence the tank reference in the background.
This was a birthday gift commission of the chap in the blue t-shirt pictured with his favourite band, The Rolling Stones! At this stage the Rolling Stones have such lived in faces they are a caricature artist’s dream. This was commissioned before Charlie Watts passed away and I finished it just shortly afterwards so that was a bit bitter-sweet.
Included in this caricature is The Jolly Boys Outing poster from Only Fools and Horses as the birthday boy is a fan of the show. He’s holding his favourite beer and his t-shirt has a little nod to Dublin’s iconic Poolbeg Chimneys (I draw them so frequently they’re clearly a massive part of the Dublin psyche and on those grounds alone they should be preserved).
I really enjoyed drawing this piece and it went down really well with the subject:
“The caricature arrived in time. Dad is over the moon with it. I love it and my Mam thinks it’s great. Dad is thrilled. It really made his birthday.
Thank you so very much.”
Below is the framed piece just before shipping. All my framed pieces are professionally packaged by Carabay Packaging here in Galway and shipped via DPD.
Here’s a selection of live caricatures from a recent wedding in the Village Barn Tyrrellspass. The Barn is a cute rustic alternative venue right in the middle of Tyrrellspass, full of lovely greenery (just look at my photos, that was indoors!). This was another deferred from 2020 wedding and I was delighted the happy couple … Read more
This is another one of my digital caricatures which are delivered straight to your email inbox! It celebrates the 50th birthday of the chap pictured, and includes some Crystal Palace FC references as well as fishing, a chopper bike, and a Chas and Dave album!
“Allan did a digital caricature for my friend’s 50th, was really pleased with the result. A very quick and efficient service. Thoroughly recommended!”
