To create a caricature for someone, all I need are good quality photographs and a little something about the person. To make them really personal for the person receiving it, whether it’s a guest signing board at a wedding or birthday or if it’s a framed A4 caricature; the more information I get the better.
I get many requests for sports lovers, everything from GAA hurling counties to Premiership football clubs. In Feburary, I was asked to create a caricature design for Maireád and Andrew’s Wedding in March. Maireád is from County Kilkenny and Andrew is from Tipperary and I was told they both loved hurling, so I suggested a caricature with them holding a hurley each and in their county GAA shirts.
