Custom Caricatures

Caricatures first appeared in European and American newspapers over 200 years ago as a way of satirizing everyone from politicians to the ruling class. Today, they have evolved into a popular art form not only for framing and hanging at home, but also for display on restaurant walls and in magazines.

Everyone has distinguishing characteristics, and a caricature captures these in an amusing way. I will be happy to create a caricature of someone you know or your favorite celebrity.

It’s especially fun to have a caricature of yourself hanging in your home or office, as if to say, “I don’t take myself too seriously.”
