I was commissioned to create two portraits of the client’s father in the style of a Vanity Fair style portrait. One from when he took silk, and another from his time as a Judge. He is now retired.

This portrait depicts his time spent as a civil judge.

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
