Pastel Caricatures


pastel Caricatures

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 with far more time spent on them, plus more detail added too. 

What is included on the illustration?

You can have a basic, 'head and shoulders' caricature (black and white or colour), with the subject holding a few objects e.g. raising a drink, or go further and have a 'full-figure' illustration featuring lots of hobbies and interests around the subject.  Prices for basic caricatures are shown below, a quote will be provided for illustrations with a large amount surrounding detail. 

turnaround time

Pastel caricatures will require at least a weeks notice (earlier deadlines may be possible depending on workload). 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

The better the photo, the better the caricature! Please send me a minimum of 5 photographs (emailed if possible please and no more than 8) of each subject, which you feel represent the individual accurately. Make sure that there is a variety in the photos you send me, for example, please don't just send photos of the subject in the same pose, with the same facial expression. If you have photos of them with different expressions, perhaps even pulling a funny face, even better! No sunglasses please (unless you specifically want them included). Photos should be high quality, supplied in colour, taken in good lighting and, if possible, from different angles too (this gives a much better idea of the individual’s characteristics and from this a better likeness is achieved). 

proof sketch

Proof sketches are not available on Pastel caricatures. The Illustration is created directly from your description provided. If you require a proof sketch on a commission, please see 'Digital' or 'Pencil' caricature styles.

postage and packing

Posted in 'toblerone-style' packaging via 'Royal Mail Special Delivery'. Please note, I am currently only able to post to addresses within the UK. Please add £10 p&p to illustration cost listed below.


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 (transaction fee applies with PayPal orders). 

Please note that I'm unable to take card payments over the phone.

Post-friendly framing service (A3 illustrations only)

I offer a black wooden frame, which includes a mount too.  The mount can even have a personal title/message from you, added for free in a specially cut hole! These frames come with a good quality 'post friendly' acrylic. With the back also sealed with framing tape to keep it sealed, the final outside size of the frame is 54cm x 44cm. It also comes complete with fittings and cord added too! All ready to hang on your subject's wall for instant impact! 

Price is £55.00 incl. *p&p (in addition to the cost of the illustration) [*Parcelforce Worldwide express 48] or £35.00 if you can collect.
