Example of caricature

As a studio caricaturist or caricature artist, I often get commissioned to create caricatures in my studio for graduation gifts, retirement gifts, farewell gifts, birthday gifts and wedding anniversary gifts. These caricatures capture how a person is perceived by their colleagues or loved ones and are based on photos clients send me.

In essence, a caricature is a cartoon or illustration that highlights the distinct features of a particular individual, making them easily recognisable while adding a touch of exaggeration.

Example of cartoon

My work involves creating cartoons for a variety of purposes such as editorials, book covers, logos, training programs, and educational programs.

I find that incorporating humour through cartoons can be particularly effective in lightening up the often sombre topic of economics. Additionally, when it comes to training programs, cartoons prove to be especially valuable in teaching illiterate workers.

Technical illustrations

Example of technical illustration

Another area where I possess expertise is creating vector drawings as line art for a variety of purposes, such as brochures, instruction manuals, maps, and diagrams.  Vector drawings are crafted entirely on a computer using precise coordinates to produce sharp, polished lines that can be resized to any scale without losing quality.
