The Queen’s Man in York

The client approached me to create a caricature of him in the Vanity Fair, Leslie Spy Ward style to commemorate him becoming the Sheriff of York.

He sent me photos with the most perfect Vanity Fair Spy print pose. Clearly a fan!

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
