Vanity Fair Style – The Boardroom and the Courtroom

This client wanted to celebrate a landmark anniversary for his law firm. He pulled out all the stops, and went as far as setting up a photo shoot with a professional photographer in order to get the best photos for me to use as reference for his portrait. I was spoiled for choice! See his testimonial below.


“As a lawyer, I have collected Spy prints for nearly 30 years.  While searching the internet I came upon Amanda’s website and was immediately intrigued.

To celebrate my family’s 100 years ( 3 generations) of practicing law in Minnesota, I asked her to create a caricature of me in the Vanity Fair tradition.  Amanda was great to work with and willingly incorporated my ideas and suggestion.  She was prompt in response, professional in all regards, and a talent.

It was a fun experience and I am very happy with her work.  I was a bit nervous about the distance between Minnesota and Wales but there were no problems.  I highly recommend Amanda and her unique spin on an old tradition.”

These are gentle caricatures, nothing too extreme. As Leslie Ward (Spy) said:

If I could sum up the art in a sentence, it would be that caricature should be a comic impression with a kindly touch, and always devoid of vulgarity.Leslie Ward – Wikipedia
