A traditional caricature can become a great memory about that time you were in that place. The problem with a typical caricature begins when you get home to realize it was made on cheap paper and it’s difficult to scan or take a decent enough picture to share with friends. Most times it was done too quickly to capture something meaningful and can be so generic it looks like a person you’ve never seen before. Another issue can be how to display it. You’re hoping it doesn’t get wrinkled before you have time to get it framed or the actual size might not fit well in your space.
My name is Carlos and I make unique and custom digital caricatures that focus on truly capturing you. I take the time and effort to get to know you so I can create an illustration that you will love. Learn more about me here.
I start with a traditional sketch (pen & paper) and then use the “Vector Pen Tool” I’ve mastered (Apple Pages) to create digital caricatures on my computer (MacBook Air). The finished illustration lines are clean and the drawing is scaleable – perfect prints of any size. Learn more about my process by watching a speed-drawing of my work here and here.
