On A Bicycle Made for Two!

This tandem bike wedding caricature gift was a lot of fun to draw. It’s absolutely stuffed with references from the newlywed couple’s lives, from charity work to Game of Thrones (you can see the Night King running off in the distance!) Other important elements were their love of GAA, music, tea and scones, and there’s some snowboarding going to happen too. In the background there’s a cheetah and rhino looking on. Of course Dublin and Meath are famous for their cheetahs and rhinos. 🙂

They are available for delivery all over Ireland and Northern Ireland, and I can ship to the UK too.

The process is very simple, you send me a description of what you’d like included in your bespoke caricature gift, along with recent head and shoulder photos, and I do the rest. You can include hobbies, work references, favourite football, rugby, GAA or other teams, and even pets! I’ve drawn many dogs and cats over the years! All frames are hand made by Mark in the Framing Loft Galway, and securely packaged and shipped by courier by Carabay Packaging in Galway. Once the artwork is shipped you’ll receive a tracking number so you can see your caricature art gift making its way to you! For a unique wedding gift that will be truly treasured by your newlywed friends, order a bespoke caricature from one of Ireland’s top caricature artists, Allan Cavanagh!
