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.

He’s surrounded by objects relevant to his life including pet dogs, swimming googles, a bike pump, suitcase for travel, a cook book, and a pint of Guinness (remember those?). Also making a cameo is his wife in the background! He’s saying some of his well-known catchphrases.

Personalised Caricatures From Photos Engagement Gift

engagement gift caricature allan cavanagh personalised caricature from photo

This personalised caricature was an engagement gift from a group of friends to the couple pictured. There’s a Galway flag with the date of their engagement, references to golf and shoes, and there’s a suitcase symbolising their love of travel. Their pet dog makes an appearance too! The signposts have street names that are significant to the couple too. They’re holding a pint of Guinness and a glass of wine. I got some wonderful feedback from the customer too:

5 star review  “Allan did a caricature for my friends engagement and it is just fantastic. Communication was so easy and he was so accomodating as I needed it within a week. Extremely professional and talented. Cannot recommend him enough!!”
