A caricature is the most creative, unique and personal gift you could give.

You can have the subject depicted in an event from the past, or in the future, or doing anything you want in the cartoon.

Anything is possible!
The only limit is our imaginations.

As for money, I want as much as I can get and you don't want to be ripped off.

I've done cartoons for as little as $5. and I did a huge company caricature for $1,800. Each patron was thrilled with thier caricatures.

You tell me
how much you want to spend and I'll give you more than you're paying for...I promise.

For the cartoon to the left Debbie asked me to illustrate Lonnie on his own bike, in his own riding suit doing a stunt he'll never do, on the cover of his favorite magazine. Anything's possible! There are several personal jokes in the right bottom corner of this cartoon.

This gift was 14 x 24

A complex caricature of this sort would cost $300.

This uppermanagement retiree plans to spend the next untold amount of his life filming travel documentaries, pulling his trailer with an old blue ford. His team gave me a budget of $55.

This guy is a biker who has a crawdad cook-out
for his birthday every year. He is known by his friends as the Craw daddy Master. The cartoon measured 12 x 14.

steve

When this big shot retired his company gave him a yacht and asked me to do this illustration for him. They framed it with a large matt that everyone at the retirement party signed. The jacket is very particular to Steve, as is the fact that the boat remains unnamed, and the carrier pigeon user's manuel.

This illustration was 12 x 18 and was well worth $250.

el bandito

I couldn't put the sombrero on his head because in addition to his unnatural serve his hair is a trademark.

This illustration was 12 x 24. A watercolor and color pencil caricature of this sort would cost $100.

 

IT DOES NOT MATTER HOW MUCH YOU SPEND, YOU WILL BE HAPPY.

YOU'LL JUST BE HAPPIER IF YOU SPEND A LOT!
