Have a website, blog or social media platform that you want to spice up? Add a crowtoon to it! They’re great for engaging readers, setting a mood or complementing an article. Web-ready cartoons are the most affordable option and look great on-line. High resolution print cartoons are super for your presentations, e-books, newsletters, promotional material and so forth.
Or would you like original art? Perhaps a cartoon that’s graced the pages of the Wall Street Journal, the Saturday Evening Post, Prospect Magazine, or others? Presuming it hasn’t been purchased already, it’s all yours.
Or are you wanting a Satz created original of YOU? I specialize in portracatures. What are those? Caricatures that are done more realistically. Not something that looks exactly like a photo but something that captures you with an exaggeration of the elements that make you recognizable as you. And I do regular caricatures too! Want a social media profile pic that’s uniquely you? Here’s the answer!
Did I mention these all make great gifts? No? Well, now I did!
Let’s start with original art. Click the icon of your choice (or both!) to see some examples of my portracature and caricature work. If you click the “I” at the bottom it’ll activate titles for the examples. You can try to identify the celebs and then see if I succeeded in capturing them!
If you’re looking for display rights for a crowtoon, What I offer is a single usage license for on-site purchase. If you want to use the crowtoon in multiple places, please contact me for special pricing. The copyright remains with me. Please understand that you’re licensing the cartoon as shown (other than the fact that I’ll send you one without the large copyright image that’s superimposed on my site images). Please do not alter the captions or the art and certainly don’t represent the work as your own. Pretty reasonable but saying so makes it all clear.
To streamline my own process, the cartoons on crowdensatz.com only display the web usage price and can be purchased by clicking the purchase link. If you want to purchase a license for a high resolution, print-ready version, just shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know what your needs are. I’ll send you the relevant pricing information and purchase instructions. All cartoons have an identifying number at the top of the purchase page and that’s the best way to identify them in your email.
Cartoon originals are $250 for the black and white, inked line art. All done on archival paper with permanent ink. Gray washes are $300 and colored originals are $400.
Inked caricatures are $50. I’ll need you to email me a reference photo.
Finally, a portracature is $100. These are either done in a mix of dry media (pencil, charcoal, etc and are sprayed with a surface fixative to keep them from smudging) or as a digital color print. In the digital case I’ll send you an archival print as well as a high resolution file of the artwork. For either, I’ll need one primary reference photo and having extra photos is helpful for me to get a good feel for how to best capture you.
