After knowing Claire for a while now I have fallen in love with her art style and products! I finally decided to contact her and ask for a caricature. I love the idea of having cute little cartoon versions of myself for my blog posts and media to add that extra bit of character.
Aloha Lola Cards
Aloha Lola Cards is Claires company where she creates customised cards, caricature portraits and digital designs such as blog and website headers. They are fantastic! Please head over to her website here to see more of her work and price ranges.
The prices are so affordable for such quality service and design. Claire is fab at communicating and liaises back and forth regular to ensure the product is to your standard. She is quick, thorough and the end product is wonderful!
I absolutely love her art style. It’s unique, whimsical and dreamy. I have just received my finished pieces and am already thinking about others I want done in different styles for different seasons hehe. If you are looking for creative, imaginative caricature portraits, digital designs or cards, please do take a look at Claires style and see if it’s up your street.
I have gone with a close up portrait and a full body one with both hard copy and digital so I can use it on blog posts, media and banners as well as popping the hard copy in a nice little frame. I may even consider using Claire for some personalised cards this year and possibly portraits of my nieces and nephew as I know they would absolutely love them!
My finished caricatures!
When I contacted Claire I wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted as It was more of a spur of the moment kind of thing. I finally just went for it as I saw her work again on my Twitter one day and just knew I had to get one done!
I contacted her and gave her a gist of my style and vibe. The few requests I had were to be holding a pumpkin and to give me pink hair with brownish roots as I was soon going to be dying my hair. I sent her some images of myself and a few days later she sent me the first draft. I fell in love! She had done the dress I was in beautifully.
I had a few minor editing jobs to ask and she did them without any fuss at all, assuring me all the way that she wants me to be honest and let her know if I wanted anything different. She did them immediately and kept sending changed ones until I was happy.
She came up with the little leaf hair clip and it was such a lovely touch!
Thank you for reading! Let me know what you think and share some love with Claire. She is so talented and a lovely human being.
