What do I get?

Personalised Cartoon Portraits
hand-drawn and painted from your photos......

You’ll receive a Cartoon Portrait of the person you want drawn. I work very closely with a photo supplied by you to produce a realistic drawing of the subject's head and face.
I then personalise the picture by adding clues to the person's job, hobbies, interests or whatever you've asked me to include.
If however you would just prefer a certain background, i.e  s golf course, a beach, a garden then that’s fine too!
Whatever your requirements just tell me and I’ll ldo my best to meet them, if I can’t I will let you know.
Simply complete the order quote form and remember that I can include as many people as you like, however I must advise that A3 is the best size for groups of 3 or more.
Finally, decide on whether you would like a BW line drawing or a FULL Colour drawing,.

Create a wonderfully UNIQUE gift for friends or family.
Ideal for a 40th, 50th or 60th Birthday, perhaps someone getting married....or an Anniversary, it’s  the perfect  answer, no matter what the ocassion.
Give a gift they'll never forget, they'll be so thrilled to receive it, they can't wait to show it off to everyone.
A gift so personal and thoughtful it will be a gift they'll treasure for many years to come.
Order one today and bring "fun and hand-drawn happiness" to someone's special day!
