Knighting Ceremony Themed Gift Caricature

We got this gift caricature order with a rather unusual request but nevertheless interesting and fun to draw.

Dear Kamal

We got your address from the internet and hope you can assist us.

A friend of ours was recently ‘knighted’ in Spain, an award for services to the medical industry. We would like to give him a small picture (sketch) gift which basically shows him being ‘knighted’ by a ‘King’ with sword and with him kneeling in front of the king.

The picture to be a sketch (no significant detail) other than obviously reflecting the king in any period attire, a man kneeling in front but importantly the sketch of the man’s face must be of a very good likeness to our friend – Robert Gaines-Cooper.

For your assistance please see the attached sheet where I have pasted a picture of our friend (Robert) and also three ‘examples’ of someone being knighted.

The sketch would be either on a A5 or A4 hard card (white) with the sketch in black. At the bottom under the sketch it would say ““Levántese Señor Gaines-Cooper”

As indicated no real details as long as it resembles a ‘scene’ of a knighting and the Kings face can be obscured but the face of Robert to be clearly him.

Hopefully what I have supplied you assists but please revert with questions, suggestions and a price!

We would need the drawing by Monday of next week if agreed.

Many thanks

  1. Hi I have a friend who is to be knighted here in the UK by her majesty the Quessn shortly and thought it would be nice to send a gift to honour such an occasion. What sort of time frame would you need and what costs are involved.
