Mike Giblin’s Caricatures

A few weeks ago, the fantastic caricaturist and character designer Mike Giblin announced that he would no longer be updating his blog, and as a thank you to his readers, he offered a free caricature to the first three readers to email him.

I was one of the lucky ones, and last week I received my incredible caricature. One of the reference photos I had sent Mike also had my girlfriend in it, and he had kindly done a caricature of her too! Here they are:

Those who know us will know how perfectly Mike has captured us in these pictures. He seems to have an uncanny knack for expressing the essence of a person’s character in a very simple style, which I guess is what makes him such a good character designer.

We’ve had loads of people asking us where we got these, and referred them all to Mike’s website. If you want to get one of your own, check out www.mikegiblinillustration.com
