Garda Retirement Gifts: Another one of my ever-popular Garda retirement gift caricatures here, this time a framed piece that went out last year. This one had many personalised details included, which is always fun figuring out where to put everything!
It features many moments and places from the retiring Garda’s life. There’s Esker Monastery, a barbershop quartet (singing The Lion Sleeps Tonight), sliothar and hurley, and a Galway GAA jersey with #3 on it, the position the Garda played! There’s the Liam MacCarthy Cup, a putting green in the background, a pint of Guinness in his hand, and of course the birthday cake with candles! There’s a hanging basket, tennis racket and ball, Sligo Garda Station and a little Garda car! The retiring Garda’s dogs are also pictured at his feet. Below is the framed piece just before it shipped:
This caricature gift for a retiring Garda went down very well with the client:
Thank you so much for the retirement present. I love it. Thank you also for packing it so well. It arrived safe and sound ahead of time.
It will get plenty of attention and I’ll easily recommend your work to others.
I also got a lovely review!
I can’t recommend Allan Cavanagh’s work highly enough. He is very talented and very professional. After a couple of emails his fabulous piece was delivered by DPD superbly packaged ahead of schedule.
Once you order I will send you a form to collect the details you would like included. You then email me recent high-resolution photos of the subject (and of course any pets that are getting drawn too!)
