Payment
Full payment will be required prior to beginning your illustration. Once I've confirmed that I can accept the commission and you've confirmed that you wish to proceed, I will email payment methods to you. This may be made by electronic bank transfer, cheque or PayPal (for PayPal click here). Please note that I can't take card payments over the phone. PLEASE DO NOT PAY UNTIL I HAVE CONFIRMED THAT I CAN MEET YOUR DEADLINE!


PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING BEFORE GOING AHEAD WITH AN ORDER:

  • My goal is to represent a person in a fun, cartoon style, usually with exaggerated features - a 'caricature'. 
  • My caricature illustrations are based on how I imagine the person's character and look to be, from the quality and content of the photos that are provided to me.
  • Please bear in mind that I do not know the subject and a lot of the character of him/her is gained by you 'knowing' them. This doesn't always come across in photos. 
  • Before commissioning me to create a caricature, please bear in mind that I am not a 'portrait artist'! If you are hoping for an identical, photographic representation of an individual, then please contact a portrait artist who can suit your requirements. 
  • Hopefully, from viewing the caricature samples with their photos on this website, you can get an idea of what I can achieve for you.


Pastel caricatures will require at least a weeks notice (earlier deadlines may be possible depending on workload). UK only. Once I have confirmed that I can meet your deadline and requirements, I'll then need a few details and a selection of photos from you.

Photos to supply

I will need a few good quality photos of each subject sent to me to create a caricature. For more information, please click here.

Proof sketch

Proof sketches are not available on Pastel caricatures (illustration created from your description). If you require a proof sketch on a commission, please see 'Digital' or 'Pencil' caricature styles.

More information below

Pastel illustrations are completely hand-drawn, created with black line and then shaded with pastels. They are drawn with the same materials that I use for my live events (but with far more time spent on them plus more detail added). Framing service offered too!
