Custom Hand-Drawn Caricatures of People and Pets


Each completely custom caricature/cartoon starts out as a pencil sketch incorporating provided input, then drawn in permanent marker on illustration board and finished off with vibrant color markers. On average these take 4 to 5 hours to complete. No two are alike.


In today's photo-centric world a custom illustrated vibrant marker rendering is a unique gift that will be treasured. Caricatures can be framed. Other items are available with the image such as buttons, key fobs, clocks and more. See below for ideas.


To produce the best likeness we will need a handful of photos that show facial detail with a smile. Other useful images include office, home, car, pets, etc. We will also need a list of the subject's likes (such as sports teams, activities, foods, etc.) and any idiosyncrasies. The "little" details will make the the piece more personal.

Meet the Artist

I’m Paul Kraml. I’ve been drawing since I was 2 years old and never stopped. I have been in the Graphic Design and Advertising Industry for over 40 years. I’m currently the Owner and Creative Director of Kraml Design and retired from the NJ Office of the Attorney General in 2019 as Creative and Advertising Director. Cartooning is one of my passions and I truly enjoy creating each piece hoping to bring a smile or a laugh each time someone glances at it.
