This was a birthday gift caricature for the pictured gentleman! He’s a writer with an interest in history, poetry, baking and coffee, and there’s plenty of coffee-making paraphenalia included!

He’s on the receiving end of computers and phones that need updating or repair, so I’ve included those too.

He’s also a fan of a glass of red wine! Last but not least his pet cat makes an appearance in the foreground, “looking after” his book of poetry.
