This retirement caricature went to the UK earlier this year. It’s the second piece I created for GB Fleetcare for a retirement, it’s nice to have a repeat customer! The subject of this piece flew in a World War II Spitfire for his 60th birthday so he’s got his flight suit on with the Spitfire in the background. There’s some very specific references to too, such as a Velosolex bike and a Piaggio trike, and an Italian flag on the flipchart! He’s got an allotment so I included a bag of fertiliser to symbolise that. He’s also very into drone flying so that’s included too! There’s also a Tesco truck in the background and he’s into fishing so he’s also holding a fishing rod!
This is one of my personalised retirement caricatures available for delivery all over Ireland. He worked in cement manufacture hence the cement mixer and welding. He’s a massive GAA fan and is wearing a Cavan GAA jersey and there’s an O’Neill’s Gaelic Football in there too. He’s also a Manchester United fan and is wearing a Man Utd scarf. He’s very into gardening so that interest was included too. I’ve also included his pet Labrador and the produce of his garden ends up on the table so I’ve included some soup in there too! Lastly I’ve made some references to his hobbies of reading and fishing.
I got some really wonderful feedback from the customer too:
“Allan done a caricature of my dad as a gift for his retirement. The whole process from ordering to delivery of the was very simple and straight forward. The caricature he created really captured everythig about dads personality and resembled a real likeness of him too. We were all very impressed with it. Id highly recommend Allan, hes very talented at what he does. It was a very quick turnaround from order to delivery if the image. Thanks Allan.”
