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!

The Turfcutter!

The Turfcutter Caricature

This caricature brought back childhood memories of being in the bog (or the hill as we say in Donegal)! It features the subject in a Kerry GAA jersey with his Ford tractor in the background behind a HAPE of turf! I’m old enough to remember spade-dug turf, trying to catch clouds as they drifted in over us (and realising they weren’t the cotton wool substance I thought they were) and drinking sweet tea from vacuum flasks. My back remembers the days spent footing them. Drawing this was very evocative of those memories (probably some of my earliest).
