Surprise Gifts, caricatures from photos — always a big hit! Here is the usual process for getting a drawing done from a photograph.

When that is approved we ask prepayment, since this is custom art. So we receive a credit card payment, or wait for a check, get that resolved.
Then I can go to the final ink and color stage, which is the most fun of course. Finally we get the drawing to the client (maybe YOU!), via email, US Postal Service or other method. Here’s the final art on this project: Fun surprise gifts — caricature drawings from your photos! An amusing, highly personal gift your friend will never throw away.
