So who is Jerry Emerson?
What I do and have done
Hi, my name is Jerry Emerson and I have been drawing caricatures for over 40 years. My caricatures and cartoons have appeared in books and magazines since 1972. I have been providing caricaturing services on the world wide web since 1995.
I draw my caricatures digitally now, using an electronic pen, tablet and drawing applications such as Photoshop and Paint Tool Sai. For vector work I use Xara. I stopped pen and ink caricaturing about 10 years ago for a number of reasons. First, the inking and painting processes were too slow to meet growing demand. Second, postage and insurance was costly, as was packaging materials. But lastly, and most importantly, customers were increasingly requesting digital art over physical art.
In my 20 years of caricature services on the Web, I have amassed a vast portfolio of work, diverse in both subject matter and style. Please visit my galleries and enjoy the work. Perhaps you’ll want to hire me to create a caricature for you.
Photoshop CS2, CS4, CC98%
Paint Tool Sai95%
Xara Extreme Pro (vector program)98%
Simply to provide the best caricaturing I can no matter who the client is, an individual or a corporation. To go beyond the services most other caricaturists provide with extra attention to the details that make just a caricature a great one.
To bring a bit of humor and whimsy into the world where ever I can, in hopes to mitigate the hum drum, the daily drudgery and the repetitiveness in life.
When you order caricatures, you may trust my years of experience to create a quality work of art. Furthermore, you’ll own the artwork outright, meaning, you may print the work as many times as you like or use it in any way that you like. I retain no rights over the work after you pay me in full.
What clients have said
Emerson Art was one of the easiest vendors I’ve ever worked with. The lines of communication were always open, and they went above and beyond my expectations. A terrific experience.
I wanted to thank you for the amazing job you did on my character drawing. It was a huge hit with all of the groomsmen and I would have never imagined that it would come out that good. You are a truly talented artist.
Just wanted to let you know the…caricature was the hit of Don’s retirement party…he thought it was absolutely brilliant.
Sent out the caricature Christmas Cards and what great responses I have had – everyone loved it!!! I have even had requests for your information so have sent your website to several friends – hope it brings you some additional business. I know I will be back. Thank you!
Awesome work! My groomsmen will love the caricatures. Can’t wait to give them away. I will be sure to let people know about your services. Thanks again!
A while back, my family decided we wanted to give my father a very special, personal and unique gift for his 70th birthday. We checked around and discovered Jerry Emerson. My family just could not be happier with the job.
I highly recommend Jerry’s services. He does phenomenal work with great attention to detail . He was very prompt in responding to my needs. The turnaround time was not only quick but at a reasonable price. We have already received many compliments and I am confident that it will be a great branding image for our company for years to come. Thanks Jerry!
The right choice! After researching several companies, I recently contracted Emerson Studios to design the header for my website and a caricature for my sports personality. Not only was the artistic quality well beyond my expectations, but the service level was well into the stratosphere as well.
