Save The Date Cards Caricature

Save The Date Cards Ireland

Looks like engaged couples are back planning their weddings for next year and beyond judging by my enquiries! This is a wedding caricature for a Save The Date card this couple were sending out to their intended guests for their nuptials. I supplied the artwork and they printed up the Save the Date cards themselves. They are pictured in their wedding attire in front of a simple bridal arch with a signpost in the background. There is a banner above them for the details of the wedding date. (Note: this is a compressed image for the website. The actual art you receive is 300dpi.) Great to see the wedding industry getting geared up for a big return once we reach the tipping point in vaccinations. I for one have greatly missed weddings and I can’t wait to get back on the road with my live wedding caricatures!

Birthday Gift Caricature for Veterinary Nurse!

Birthday Gift Caricature Allan Cavanagh

This personalised digital caricature was a birthday gift for a veterinary nurse! It features her and her fiance holding their pet dogs. I’ve drawn them having their favourite tipples of whiskey and gin. He’s a golfer so I’ve drawn him in vintage golf attire (always good for caricatures!) and she’s wearing her favourite dressing gown and boots! They were recently engaged so I’ve drawn her wearing a slightly larger-than-life engagement ring! As she’s a veterinary nurse I drew her wearing a nurse’s cap with a couple of paw-prints to signify her job!

My digital caricatures are just €75 and are delivered straight to your inbox by email as high resolution jpegs. Please note the image here is low-resolution for faster loading. The whole process is completely contactless, and they can be gifted digitally anywhere in the world by email, or you can print them yourself. Once you order I send you a short form to collect your details and you email me back recent high-resolution head and shoulder photos of the subjects. I do the rest! Price quoted is for up to 2 likenesses, for more people in the caricature I will need to know the details so just drop me a line with what you have in mind.

In this time of absence from each other caricatures are a delightful, thoughtful and highly-personalised gift to show someone you’re thinking of them.

Brexit-Themed Wedding Invitation!

Brexit Themed Wedding Invitation caricature ireland

This caricature was for the invitations for a cross-border wedding last year, and the couple chose to have a fun take on the impending Brexit business! They’re standing on the border with the family farm and a blue New Holland tractor in the background. In the ground either side of the “border” are the county flags for Fermanagh and Leitrim. I’ve drawn the couple in the actual wedding attire they were planning for their big day, right down to the groom’s navy dickie-bow!
The Irish wedding industry will be hotting up again by the summer and already people are planning their weddings for 2022, 2023, and I’ve even had an enquiry for 2024! If you want to capture a feeling of fun right from the get-go a caricature wedding invitation is the way to go. If you order one of my wedding signing boards the digital version of the artwork is included for free! You can simply send this file to your printer and they’ll do the rest. So if you’re at the planning stage of your wedding and you’re starting to think about what to put on those wedding invitations, or you’re looking for a fun way to commemorate your big day, feel free to get in touch any time!

Celtic-Themed Family Caricature!

celtic family caricature allan cavanagh

Celtic Family Portrait: this personalised caricature was for Father’s Day last year for a family in the United States! The whole family is dressed as Celts (I don’t think I’ve drawn a Celtic brooch since primary school!) In the foreground are uillean pipes and a bodhran reflecting Dad’s musical interests and the whole thing is finished off with a border of Celtic knot-work.
This is one of my digital caricatures and was simply delivered by email the instant it was finished. No waiting around on the post!
