The flying mother in law !!!

This client was particularly brave wanting his mother in law depicted flying on a broomstick for her 60th birthday - softened the blow by giving her a 30 year old's body !! ( I'm guessing it won't save him though !)
I've done a few of these 'march of time' picture galleries up the side of caricatures celebrating significant birthdays - cuts down on the 'clutter' clients often want to pile into a caricature !!

Just received the photo - she's over the moon !
It pays off to some times be 'nice' in caricature ........................

Thanks Ken - I was pleased how this one turned out. Mind you once I saw the eyebrows, nose and eyes I thought 'You're on a winner here Tel !'
