CARICATURES! The best gift you can give!
Dr Jay and her team deliver the friendliest customer service. You will find the experience fun and full of anticipation!
Here's the thing ...
Dr Jay will turn herself inside out to give the customer what they want. She doesn't do 'off the shelf' standard caricature pictures. She does tailormade and highly personalised drawings, which is why her work is different to other caricaturists. For example, if you want your Harley Electra Glide in the picture, that's exactly what you will get. No 'clip art' style motor bikes! Read some of the testimonials from delighted customers.
Just email a smiling, close-up, good quality photo ... with your ideas and requirements ... and Dr Jay will take it from there.
VERY LITTLE WAITING TIME
Dr Jay puts her customers first. The ironing can wait.
She can perform magic and will drop everything and do your job straight away. This is perfect when you just realised that your daughter's wedding is in three days time, and you need the caricature urgently. Not a problem for us. Dr Jay loves the adrenalin rush! (No, we don't charge extra for urgent jobs).
HOW MUCH ARE THEY?
Be patient. We'll get to that.
UP FRONT PAYMENT
We hate this bit.
But despite Dr Jay's caricatures being loved and used as gifts, on social media, on t-shirts and wedding coasters, occasionally ... just very occasionally ... people forget to pay. Man, this is awkward. So, like other forms of online shopping, we're asking for upfront payment please, via bank transfer.
Phew, glad that bit's over.
Just in case you're wondering, we understand that you're taking a gamble and having to trust that Jay will do an awesome job. Don't fret. You can trust her. She's a doctor! She's been drawing caricatures forever and never had one complaint or rejection.
Sporting teams, office/work colleagues, choirs, bands ... whatever the group, there's a Group Caricature waiting to happen! What about a fund-raising calendar?
And, it goes without saying, we can provide any size prints for every member of the group.
Have fun with your pet, either with a cartoon style or caricature. These make lovely gifts. Have a look at the general ART GALLERY page for some examples.
LIVE "ON THE SPOT" CARICATURES
An awesome addition to your special occasion. Dr Jay will come and engage with your guests and draw caricatures throughout the event.
The drawing paper will also have your logo or event name on it.
The fee is $150 per hour (approx 6 - 8 guests are drawn per hour), within Sydney. If Dr Jay can't get all the guests drawn at the event, she'll photograph the remaining guests, and email their caricatures the next day. The hourly rate also applies for additional caricatures that are drawn in the studio.
Under "MORE" (above tab), see photos on the EVENTS page.
Up-front payment is required, please, on all bookings.
Our mode of payment is bank transfer, to be received prior to the event date.
OTHER TYPES OF ARTWORK
Dr Jay does other kinds of artwork too ... cartooning, murals, advertising material, photographic collages, pet cartoons, people or pet portraits, book cover designs ... anything really. Loads of samples are on the ART GALLERY page.
Dr Jay can also create an ANIMATED VIDEO PROMO for your business, like the caricature video above, or the Mothers Day promo on the Home Page.
Yes, we can create a website for you and make it super groovy with your caricature. Highly personalised. No stock images.
Prices vary. Some customers want a person caricaturised with nothing in the background. Others send us twenty photos of household items they want drawn, and want a very 'busy' picture.
Dr Jay often works on one picture for several days.
Having said that, our prices are competitive, and well under the Australian Cartoonists Association industry recommended retail price. Dr Jay would get struck off if they knew!
We use perspex, not glass, in the frames, to ensure safe delivery through Australia Post.
A3 is the most popular size, but we've done larger than life huge poster sizes for special events. Here's what the A3 looks like framed:
A special and fun addition to your party, work function or event.
For the best outcome, please email us a very clear close-up photo of the subject, in high resolution (300dpi). Oh! And the BIGGER the smile, the better!
We'll then talk with you about what you'd like in the picture, the size, and any other requirements you may have.
The above video is a promo for a calendar of over 50 brass and percussion members of the Sydney Veterans' Band.
It was a successful fund raiser, and it's an awesome idea to engender camaraderie and fun within your group.
If you're in Sydney, Dr Jay and her team can come and take all the individual photos needed to create the caricature... or if you're somewhere else, the photos can be emailed to her.
She does, however, love meeting her customers!
Dr Jay can film and produce your PROMO VIDEO too.
It's the complete package.
