Harry Potter Themed Wedding Signing Board

harry potter themed wedding signing board caricatures from photos

The bride in this one is a big Harry Potter fan so on went the Sorting Hat and wand! Also pictured are this family’s 3 pet cats, some weightlifting and a football with the Arsenal logo on it. This caricature was then printed on canvas which is mounted on a 40x60cm wooden stretcher by my friends in The Canvas Works in Kinsale and delivered straight to the venue (always good when you can tick one more thing off the list for the couple getting married!) If you’re interested in a personalised caricature signing board for your wedding just drop me a line. They make great wedding presents too!

Canvas Wedding Signing Board

Canvas Wedding Signing Board: with weddings now back in style my canvas signing boards are starting to move again and here’s one I created for a lovely couple earlier this year. It features symbolic objects from their lives including teaching, science, PE, technical drawing, engineering, and farming (you can see the prize bull in the background!)
When you order one of my canvas signing boards for your wedding, I create a unique caricature from photos of you both and incorporate as many jokes, hobbies and other references as you like. There is a short order form to complete to capture these details as well as your eye colour and hair colour (not always obvious from photos!). You then receive a 40cm x 60cm canvas print on a wooden stretcher, with white space around the caricature for your guests to sign on the day. It can either be sent to your home address or delivered straight to the venue, whichever you prefer. They’re supplied ready to hang but are also suitable for framing. Price at time of writing is €250 including delivery and 2 fine tip black Sharpie markers. You can see this signing board in place at the venue waiting for the guests signatures below! If you’ve any questions about my personalised canvas signing boards just drop me a line!

School Principal Retirement Gift Caricature: this caricature was a gift for a retiring principal in a national school in Sligo. It includes many references and catchphrases! I got wonderful feedback on this one:

Hi Allan,
Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for the AMAZING cariacture you created for our Principal.
Absolutely brilliant, you are gifted at what you do – it exceeded all my expectations and you incorporated absolutely everything as requested – the Principal himself was just blown away and amazed by it; and my colleagues were so impressed with your work. Your name and details have been spread far and wide☺️
Thanks so much again for your professionalism and will hopefully order something again from you in the future.

Birthday Gift Caricature from Photos

birthday gift caricature allan cavanagh caricatures from photos

This caricature was a birthday gift for the chap holding the basketball and it has running, cycling and horse-riding as its themes! I didn’t have any photos of his pet dog so I referenced it with paw prints which you’ll see on the ground if you look closely!

August is now booked up but I have some slots for September if you want to order a caricature in the meantime and if you’re thinking of ordering a caricature for that major holiday that begins with a C and ends with a hangover I would get in touch at the start of November at the absolute latest as slots are limited and allocated on a first come first served basis! That was a long sentence!
