First Wedding Anniversary Gift Commission

By Edd Travers

First Wedding Anniversary Gift Commission

Did you know it’s traditional to give your partner a gift of PAPER on your very first wedding anniversary? Caricatures are ideal for that! This couple hired me to entertain their guests on their wedding day with quick-fire live caricatures, however the Bride and Groom were busy being photographed, etc, so they didn’t manage to get drawn on the day. I told them about the ‘paper gift’ tradition, so a year later the Bride sent me some wedding photos via email and I created this piece for them which they were delighted with! Nice idea eh? Get in touch with me to find out more.

My ‘one of a kind’ caricatures make fantastic gifts for any special occasion or event. They can also be supplied digitally to be used as unique profile pictures for your social media needs or website images.

My commission work here is in a similar style to that which I create live at weddings and events etc - although here it is much more refined and ‘polished’, with a greater emphasis on likeness - where all humour is derived purely from observation and exaggeration of the facial features - which is the main basic principle of the art of caricature and one which attracted me to the art in the first place!

Without the clutter of props, gags, scenario’s and backgrounds etc, these are “pure” caricatures in the most traditional sense of the word.

Unlike the glut of caricaturists who work entirely digitally nowadays, it’s worth noting that all my work is entirely drawn by hand with professional design marker pens therefore the end result you’d get is an original, one of a kind piece of artwork - not an image churned out from a printer digitally created with pixels. I am often told that my work is so clean and crisp it looks like a ‘print’ anyway!

The illustrations are created on large A3 sized paper, drawn with black & grey professional markers / pencils with a maximum of two people per sheet. This option is always a very popular, affordable choice and can be created very swiftly - usually within a few days.

* Please note: Price reflects live performance style, i.e. head & shoulders only, no full bodies / props or backgrounds. Additional detail may require further fees charged at my standard rates. Contact me for a customised quote. Email:
