Cyclist Gifts Ireland

cyclist gifts ireland

This personalised caricature from photos was created as a gift for this globe-trotting cyclist! She’s on her bike with her Alpine skis over her shoulder. She has an Arnott’s bag hanging from her handlebars and a pair of wet swimming goggles are falling off behind her. She’s passing a signpost for the Dublin Mountains and a globe of the world to signify all her travel. She is connected to Kerry so she has a sign around her neck saying “Up the Kingdom” in the Kerry colours! The caricature is completed with some of her trademark catchphrases in speech bubbles around her head. As you can see my caricatures are completely customisable and make great gifts for cyclists and can feature the hobbies and interests of family, friends and colleagues! My personalised caricatures are sought after for birthdays, engagements, anniversaries, retirements, leaving gifts and a host of other special occasions! Once you order I get you to fill out a short form to collect the details you’d like included in the caricature, then you simply email me recent head and shoulder photos of the subject. The whole process is very simple and each caricature is sent with a tracking number and usually takes one day to arrive once sent. If you order one of my digital caricatures it simply arrives in your inbox by email! I have several different caricature categories including framed and unframed options so do take a look at my order page to see the one for you.

Tobe Nwigwe and Fat – Procreate Caricature

Tobe Nwigwe Fat Art Drawing Caricature Instagram

Tobe Nwigwe is one of the most consistently creative artists working today, with a singular artistic vision only matched by the prolificacy of his output. He, Fat and Nell (and the kids!) have this unified aesthetic from furniture to clothing, and the Pandemic Project was an uplifting event at a time when everything was bleak. The whole family-centred approach to music and video creation is radically wholesome and is really inspirational, but there’s room for brooding and darkness in there too. I’m a bit of a fan. It’s utterly jaw-dropping how much music he’s put out in the last year. Did I mention I’m a bit of a fan?

This is a caricture portrait of Tobe Nwigwe and Fat created in Procreate for the iPad. I intend to do a series of caricature portraits to hone my digital painting. I’m quite late to the digital game so the learning curve is somewhere between a really large hoola-hoop and one of the rings of Saturn. I’m finding it a curse and a blessing, there’s huge time savings to be had but an amazing gulf conceptually between drawing on paper and drawing and painting digitally. It’s the long way to Carnagie Hall for the next while.
