It was great working with TimidLion! Super easy- I just sent a picture of the person I wanted and they did such a good job. Would do it again.

I ordered a black and white caricature for two subjects from here and it turned out great. The price point was good. It arrived on time, and I appreciated how protected the artwork was in shipment with cardboard backing, clear bag and padded envelope.

TimidLion/Chris was great to work with. Reponds quickly and is so helpful. And the artwork....is GREAT! I was happy with our digital copy and then I got the original in the mail - it's even better in person!

10/10, everything I had hoped for. I made some kind of odd requests and the seller took great care of us. Very quick as well!

I love my caricatures! The artwork is cute and still easy to identify every person. My family will love this Christmas present.

Frequently asked questions
Our artwork is created on 11x17 card stock.
Can you add themes?
Yes! We just ask that you contact us first before purchasing as adding a theme to your artwork is an additional charge. Ordinarily we draw our caricatures with the subject's head and shoulders. Anything different from this will constitute a theme. Contact us for details!
Can you redraw the caricature?
Short answer, yes. We offer one redraw free of charge as we want you to be happy with your artwork. We just ask that you cover the cost of shipping, which is $6. After the second attempt, we must ask that you purchase another caricature. As a side note, we have never had to ask someone to purchase a second caricature. The few times we get asked to redraw, we have created art that is satisfactory to the client.
However, we have this as a general rule to cover the time and materials used by the artist.
Do you accept tips?
We do! This is how we make our living so any tips you wish to give are greatly appreciated. We accept tips through the Square cash or Venmo cash apps. Contact us after you receive your caricature for more details on how to leave a tip. It is never expected but certainly appreciated.
What is the turnaround time?
From the time we receive your photos to your art being placed in the mail is generally two weeks. We can rush your order if necessary. A small fee ($20) is added to the cost. In that case, we can get your order out within 24 hours of receiving the photos and well as sending a high resolution pdf to your email.
How can I send photos?
It is easy! Once you have made your purchase, we will get in touch with you on how to send your photos over. We generally ask for 1-2 photos of each person in the drawing. Photos that are clear will work the best.
Can you draw pets?
Absolutely! We count pets as people. So when you are selecting how many people will be in your drawing, just include your pet in that number!
