I just did my first caricature for a customer from Riga in Latvia. It was a gift for her boyfriend's 21st birthday. She ordered, paid for and sent photos all online and it was as simple as if she had lived in the next suburb. I have also done personalized gift caricatures for customers right across the United States from California to New York State plus throughout the United Kingdom and Australia and New Zealand.
One day soon I hope to be as well travelled as my caricatures are!
I am yet to do one from Alaska, anyone up that way that would like to order a caricature just contact me.

...that's right my web address. I came up with the idea of placing cut out rubber lettering on the bottom of a pair of my thongs. Now when I go for a wander along the beach I grab myself a little free publicity and make an impression.
The thing I like most about it is that it all disappears with the high tide. If only all advertising was so easily removed.
PS: I had to make sure all the letters were reversed when I stuck them down. I didn't want to have something that might offend non English speakers.

Posted on: Wednesday 6th June, 2007Many of you where interested in the steps I went through to produce one of my caricatures. I have put together a link showing the steps I go through.
Every caricature I produce is carefully planned to include a lot personal detail, at no extra charge (most charge for additional details). Because of this planning the details often link together in a funny visual pun making the finished caricature a uniquely personal gift.
Anyway have a look at the steps involved, you will see there is quite a bit of work in each caricature I produce - click here.
