.Sean raises the bar high for other marriage proposers!

Who says romance is dead hey?! What a guy. Sean - "Told about a thousand lies so I could get other things done: Caricature, metal rose, calling the US to arrange things and the photo shoot in central park... finally made it!". Huge congratulations to Sean & Ami on their engagement. It was a pleasure in providing a caricature as a small part of the special event.

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 - If using this method of payment, a transaction fee will apply).

Please note that I can't take card payments over the phone.



  • 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.

Ordering a digital style caricature 
Digital caricatures will usually require at least 1-2 weeks notice (earlier deadlines may be possible depending on workload). UK only.

Need extra prints to be delivered with the first illustration?
Extra A4 prints are priced at £3 each. Extra A3 prints are priced at £5 each. Please mention at the time of ordering your caricature (If large quantites of extra prints are required, extra postage costs may need to be added). 

Need extra prints at a later date?
A4 prints are charged at £10 each, A3 prints are charged at £15 each (Price includes p&p). (If large quantites of extra prints are required, extra postage costs may need to be added).

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 only available on 'full- figure' Illustrations. A single pencil outline proof sketch is available for the customer to approve composition and content. Please note, this sketch won't include faces as it is harder to show a true likeness with a single pencil outline. Subjects are usually shown smiling unless a specific look is required. Once this sketch has been approved, the completed illustration is then completed to meet the requested deadline.

Please note: I always try and keep my prices as competitive as I can. However, due to the ever-increasing cost of paper and inks (I always use recommended manufacturers high quality materials designed for equipment used), my prices on my 'Digital' illustrations have had to rise to cover this. 

Please note: 

'Subject' is either a person or a pet.
Above prices are based on a subject holding, or being surrounded by, a few objects that relate to him/her (hobbies and interests) with a basic background. The price may be higher if your description is very large. I will assess your request and get back to you before you commit to the commission.

Postage and packing (UK only)
Add £10 p&p to above prices. A3 sent in 'toblerone-style' packaging, A4 in a hard-backed envelope.
