Below is a selection of caricature/cartoon watercolour paintings that clients have requested for peoples birthdays, special occasions, anniversary’s etc. If you would like Dan to create a picture for you please feel free to get in contact.
Dan first draws a rough mock up of the caricature picture in pencil. The rough artwork is then emailed to the client and once the rough has been agreed it is then traced over on to watercolour paper (using a lightbox). The watercolour paper is then soaked in cold water and stretched on to board. Once the paper has dried watercolour paint is used to add the colour and finally black waterproof ink is applied to make certain areas of the picture stand out from the background.
Dan is a very talented artist who did exactly what I asked for in an extremely short time scale. His attention to detail was excellent. A wonderful gift that anyone would love and treasure. Thanks Dan.

The picture was absolutely fantastic and David loved it. It was a great surprise for him on Christmas morning - he just kept looking at it saying "cool". The picture is now hanging in our entrance hall for all to admire. Thank you very much and good luck for the future.

Daniel Jeffery's artistic art work is very detailed choreographed with cartoon detailing. Daniel's added features are very amusing and essential to his art work towards satisfying his completion of commissions for his clients. This is a wonderful gift idea for any profession or occasion and he is very affordable and reliable towards fast and accurate completion. I am very happy to announce that I will be using him as an artist for my relatives, clients and friends for a very long time. I am glad I have found him.

We contacted Dan to create a special and creative goodbye present for the retirement of Stewart, one of the senior directors at our company. We held two brainstorm sessions with him at our office during which a variety of humorous scenarios involving Stewart’s 10-year contribution to the business were graphically represented on paper. It’s amazing what can be achieved when the mischievous spirit of close colleagues is mixed with Dan’s creative capabilities. The result was an amazing caricature, beautifully designed and oozing irreverent humour which made Stewart (and the perpetrators) smile whenever they mention the piece of art. Dan was an absolute pleasure to work with and was very quick to grasp the ideas that were being circulated around the table. Undoubtedly the best farewell gift we ever offered to anyone at the company.

Just a short note to say thanks for the excellent artwork you produced of one of my employees for her leaving do. The work was an extremely accurate portrayal which now has pride of place over the mantel piece of fire place in her study at home. I was also very pleased that you were able to achieve the tight deadline required for its production and delivery.
Dan produced a caricature cartoon for a group of us to give a friend. The brief was complicated and given with a short time scale, the results however surpassed all our expectations, everyone that contributed towards the gift was delighted with the finished picture and Mark who received the gift was quite overwhelmed. The picture traveled all the way to Bulgaria and will have pride of place in the new club house at the Ibar Golf Club. We would highly recommend Dan and his work it is an excellent and unique gift which will give years of pleasure. Thanks Dan you're a star!
