I've received some fantastic feedback lately about how to make this web site as easy as possible for someone looking for personalized gift ideas.
The biggest fear for people buying such a personalize gift is that the caricature won't be very good!
Caricature Portfolio - Photos & Caricatures
To show you the quality of the caricature portraits I do, I've put together a selection here.
Simply click on the smaller image you see (there are 2 rows of small images) and you'lll be taken to a page showing the photo I worked from and the finished caricature.
Hope that helps.

I recently produced a caricature for a customer on the central coast of Queensland. It is to be a gift for his nephew who is turning 21.
When I produce caricatures, I normally ask customers if they have a funny anecdote that could be included in the final artwork.
John (not his real name) mentioned that his nephew is studying Geology at university and works at a mine in outback Queensland handling explosives.
On one occasion he was by himself at Brisbane Airport ready to catch a flight back to the mine when an announcement was broadcast throughout the Airport terminal:
“Can all unaccompanied minors please report to reception?”
You guessed it, he went to the counter.
When asked why he was there he said he was an unaccompanied miner - much to the delight of the airport staff.
My comment to his uncle was, “and this guy handles explosives?
Of course I had to include it in the final gift caricature. I will post a copy of it on my blog in a couple of weeks as he is still to receive it.
Till next week.
