Man About Town

I was asked to do a Vanity Fair style portrait of the client’s rather dapper looking husband to celebrate his birthday.

The client was a little nervous, and wondered whether she should have gone for a more caricatured version, but all all turned out well on the day. According to the client “He absolutely loved his portrait. Thank you so much for helping me to give him a surprise he is so delighted with.”

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
