Group Effort

Who’s up for a group hug?

Sure, I’m usually asked to draw individuals – men, women, kids…sometimes animals with men, women and kids.

But every now and then I get a request, usually from some corporate entity, to draw a group of individuals.

Maybe it’s intended as a gift memento to one of the group members, as a send-off to retirement.

Maybe it’s something to hang in the office as a testimony to teamwork throughout the year, and the morale-inspiring boost it gives to that team.

Or maybe it’s used as a light-hearted visual for a greeting card to send to clients, prospects and industry colleagues for the holidays – to remain top of mind with that audience/market.

Welcome to the May issue of Not Your Usual Caricature Artist from Caricatures by Joel.

Let these samples be a unique inspiration for you to consider similar approaches to doing business with your constituents.

This piece was commissioned by Duke Energy to gift their outgoing chairman and CEO, Jim Rogers.

This piece was created for The Wellness Plan, former Charlotte-area HMO, to showcase their staff as they welcomed key brokers to a gala dinner.

The following is a holiday card with Mcyntire Food Services staff doing the festive greetings.

This was a business magazine illustration, of representatives from different companies "in the profit-sharing swim."

Finally, did I say sometimes I've even drawn animals? 

This example is for a sales manager consultant who, for his newsletters, occasionally punctuates them with a cartoon positioning lions (sales force) vs. the lion tamer  (sales manager).

Catch our act again next month, with a brand new edition of Not Your Usual Caricature Artist.
