Funny Face

Pinhead Guy CaricaturesWhat It Is: Toronto-based Pinheadguy Caricatures is a one stop shop for comical yet utterly detailed sketches of you and your loved ones. You’ve probably seen caricature artists at the fair or perhaps ‘busking’ around town – but the ingenious concept here is that you can get a custom-made caricature drawing any time of year. The titular ‘Pinheadguy’ conceptualizes and hand-draws your design to bring out someone’s most prominent or distinctive features, often coupled with a theme – like their favourite interests or a special occasion.

You can then get your design emailed to you, for any type of application, from printing onto a greeting card or tee-shirt to creating a fun banner for an engagement or retirement party. You can even use a design as a guestbook for a special event by having guests sign the banner of an oversized print. Whether you’re looking for a group caricature or a solo portrait, basically everything is flexible with this truly personalized and one-of-a-kind gift idea.

Who It’s For: Your son or daughter, as a humorous engagement gift. Your boss, as a hilarious retirement pick. Your parents, as a fun anniversary present.

What It Costs: A single-person caricature is $44, while a group caricature starts at $79.

Where It’s At: Order online at the Pinheadguy Caricatures website.
