Camel Corps

I was contacted by a young man from the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards to do a set of Vanity Fair style portrait to mark the end of a few years service together as they start going off to new postings. They each posed in different uniforms and really captured the spirit of the original Vanity Fair ‘Spy’ illustrations. See my blog entry.

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
