There is no rough preview for this highly cost-effective, almost ‘instant’ option. £75.00 each. If you’d like to receive the original in the post as well, add £15.00

Colour A3 Caricatures are drawn with ink on paper, scanned in and then coloured in Photoshop producing a digital print on quality paper. The caricatures are produced in pencil roughs for your approval before going to the finished artwork. This one was produced for newspaper publisher and TV mogul Richard Desmond. You can order extra prints and even have them reduced down to A4-size. £225.00 plus postage. You can also receive the original black ink base artwork for an extra £15.00.
GROUPS OF UP to sixty people can be drawn in one composition and these make great mementos of family occasions or company events. These are mostly done from photos but some can be done from drawings done on the spot at parties. I take the caricatures back to scan them in and then compose a group composition which I send back, with the original artworks, as a digital print. And, of course, you can order as many prints as you like so that everyone in the party can have one to keep.
Group Caricatures start from £250.00 for TWO people. As usual, black and white groups are ink-on-paper and colour groups are digital prints. Groups of three or more plus the details involved would have to be discussed to arrive at the best possible price. In all cases, the final illustration is arrived at after several exchanges of roughs for you to approve at every stage of the project ensuring complete satisfaction with the end product.
