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.

For Maireád and Andrew’s special day, I created a Caricature Guest Signing Board and Wedding Day and Evening invitations from the same design. There must have been great excitement when their guests received the unique invitations in the mail.

So along with the memories, photographs and all the guests had signed the caricature guest signing board at the reception; Andrew and Maireád now have a special keepsake that can be framed as a special keepsake.
