Allegra Toon Studio is run by Dan, a cartoonist and illustrator who will add that special touch in your wedding gift. He specialises in producting detailed bespoke cartoon group portraits to present as gifts to ushers and or bridesmaids as well as making a highly personalised wedding gift with a difference.
Allegra Toon Studio provides you with Hand drawn and painted work of art. Each piece is hand drawn and inked with brush on high quality Canson Bristol Card, before being painted in gouache and re-inked to produce a highly detailed and bespoke work of art.
The dimensions most typically used are A3 or A2 but any size is possible to suit your requirements and taste. From this you may choose to make prints to give as gifts and frame the original to keep for yourself- the piece comes unframed but framing can be arranged for an additional fee.
How he works
The process is kept very simple. Working from clear photographs of each person you can send by email - usually a good portrait shot and a full body pic - as well as a description of what you would like each person to be doing or other facets of their personality you'd like capturing, firstly preliminary sketches would be sent to you by email for approval and fine tuning.
Following this stage a pencil draft of the full layout would be emailed to you where, if needed, final details could be added or omitted as well as any other amendments discussed. Once this had been approved then the inked stage would be completed and emailed, followed by the complete painted stage.
Depending on time frames and commitments, the whole process usually takes two to three weeks to complete though the earlier you book the more time to prepare the piece, especially if framing was needed. Throughout the entire process you are involved in bringing your artistic vision to life.
Cartoon group portraits are not the only he does. If you prefer a more traditional piece of art then detailed pastel portraits are also available for commission in various sizes.
