If you would like a cartoon caricature I have bitten the bullet and started to do them.
Prices start at £75 for a standard full colour cartoon which is supplied in a 12″ x 10″ mount with backing board + electronic version + a square jpeg version (for a Facebook profile picture if required). ‘Standard’ would be the person in uniform with their instrument. Prices will vary if you require additional elements in the cartoon.
To do the caricature I will need:
- A selection of high resolution photos with at least one or two face on and preferably smiling!. These must be digital as I don’t like the responsibility of original photo’s through the post – particularly with the great British postal service!!! I can often get the images I need through the persons Facebook page if they have an account.
- What do you want me to draw? In uniform, with instrument? I need to know exactly what you want me to draw. If it’s a brass band uniform i would need to know which band . I can usually find the uniform colours through the bands web site or Google images but i may require confirmation.
- Eye colour. This may seem odd but very often I cannot tell from photos what the persons eye colour is. There is nothing worse than doing a great cartoon when the eye colour is wrong.
- Time…I often get requests where the caricature is required in a day or two. I usually have a backlog of work so at least a week or two is necessary – the earlier the better.
I deliver the cartoons in a mount with backing board as standard and is securely packaged and delivered first class recorded.
The price quoted will include postage and packing and recorded delivery (UK).
If the caricature is to be mailed abroad the overall charge will be greater due to greater postal charges which I would discuss before committing to a price.
