21 Best Caricature Artists | Buy Cartoon Drawings!


Caricatures are one of the most recognizable art styles in the world. Through the exaggerated big heads and grotesque features, many cartoon artists apply this style in comic pop art to create a satire of popular celebrities and events. In general, they’re just fun to look at and can be used to poke fun at others. For this reason, most common people see cartoon drawings at amusement parks, carnivals, or most crowded public areas. However, it can be difficult to find a caricature artist when we want them the most. Especially when we have that sudden urge to get a gift for someone else or just need a cool wall piece.


We have assembled a list of the 21 best caricature artists that have open online commissions. This list not only contains general information about these artists and their artwork but also the key feature of the services they provide. It’s also important to note that these artists are all hard-working and talented people who try their best with each commission. So look through each of these artists and find the best one for your needs!

 

Through Tellinga's team of talented artists, any caricature can come to reality. These cards can be used for any occasion as long as you dictate your purpose before you make a request from the team. The process to purchase a card from Tellinga is quite easy. Customers send their stories and Tellinga's team of talented illustrators churn out greeting-card size postcards, which are placed in a brown grocery bag envelope with the customer's address used as the return address. Before your card is shipped, a charity stamp and custom wax seal are applied. Afterward, your story's digital copies are sent to your email to share online with family and friends. Every card shipped helps raise funds to fight breast cancer, Alzheimer's, and PTSD.


Here's how it works:

  1. Select your story length (options-one day, one week, two weeks, or one month)

  2. Upload a photo and add a description of your desired story (you can reminisce a memory from your past or create a brand-new story)

  3. Their team of talented illustrators and artists will start working on your story

  4. A few days later, the designated recipient of the story will start receiving unique hand-drawn greeting card-sized illustrations every other day in their mailbox until the package ends. Every card shipped helps raise funds to fight Alzheimer's disease, support breast cancer research, or helps treat those impacted with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
