This personalised digital caricature was a gift for this environmentally-conscious Guns N Roses fan! As well as rocking out to her favourite band she also loves coffee, is a teacher, and has a car with a rather high mileage! I was able to include all these references for the customer.
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 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!
Personalised Golf Caricature for Captain: this caricature was a gift for last year’s Captain in Elm Park Golf Club. There’ a Wexford theme and she’s wearing the Wexford colours of a purple golf shirt (with an Elm Park Crest) and a gold skirt. There’s lots of hand sanitiser and masks and of course committee meetings on Zoom! There’s a few wee golf-related easter eggs in the Zoom conference if you have a close look! The caricature also includes the tote bags with the club crest that contained sanitiser and masks she gave members!
Good news! My framed caricatures are now available again! During lockdown I had to temporarily suspend the option to get your caricature framed due to retail restrictions but we’ve figured out a safe workaround. I’m delighted to announce the framing option is back in place. All my frames are hand-made to order from high quality materials by Mark and Sandra in the Framing Loft, Tuam Road, and packaged by Carabay Packaging in Liosban, who then send the packaged framed caricature by DPD express courier.
