The Art of a Caricaturist – Myself and My Future Wife Receive Comedy Makeover

When attending a 30th birthday party, you usually have a good idea of what to expect before you even arrive. The customary bar, selection of finger food and a promise of an upcoming disco where we all attempt to ‘shake our stuff’ – however what you might not expect among the usual festivities is a Caricaturist.

This was exactly the scenario I found myself in yesterday evening and before I knew it, my ever so cheeky future Mother-in-Law had put both myself and my fiancée on a list to get the ‘Caricaturist treatment’.

A caricature can refer to a portrait that exaggerates or distorts the essence of a person or thing to create an easily identifiable visual likeness. In literature, a caricature is a description of a person using exaggeration of some characteristics and oversimplification of others.

The artistic flare on this occasion was provided by Graham Davies, a Caricaturist who has certainly captured the features that make us all unique and identifiable and sketches them carefully – providing a lovely memorable drawing you can take home with you to enjoy for many years to come.

I will certainly be getting ours framed in the very near future and if you have a wedding, party, promotion or other kind of function – I would recommend this wonderful diversion and indeed a Caricaturist of Graham’s quality to give an extra treat to the occasion.
