Yes, we got this invite by a caricaturist on instagram with the handle @bigalart to join a caricature barbeque party, where we will get to draw other spot-on caricaturist in diaspora via the zoom application.
So it was 10pm PST which we believe we won’t be able to make due to the time zone in Nigeria but surprisingly we were still able to make it to the event in the morning 6am lagos, nigerian time.
It was fun, here are virtual caricatures of Owolabi made by the caricaturists in diaspora via zoom virtual event.
Owolabi too created caricatures of caricaturists at the zoom event, even though he was on it directly has he got off his bed.
Here are the caricatures he created
Hope you enjoyed what you’ve seen.. When it’s your zoom event? You need to have your attenders drawn over virtual, it will be fun and rewarding. Thanks for viewing our post.
We posted this artwork on our instagram with a bit of words of advise on making sure we keep memory as we live everyday, there is no memory too small to be kept.
The painted artwork was created with this reference
This picture is a very old picture and was re-shot with even poor mobile phone camera. It is a pity we can not have this moment again which would have given us good privilege to shoot a clearer and more professional original image.
Did you know this picture was taken over 20 years ago? this is the reason why the caption on instagram was ‘
“It’s been grace. When you are a parent, spend time with your kids, it’s important, and try to always keep record or take pictures of the time because soon enough you’ll get old and you’ll appreciate the mormries you made and kept
The artwork was created with poor resolution image, but the artist, Owolabi, tried his best, doing a lot of zooming while painting to get the details but with all effort he was unable to still see deep enough but tried his best to make the image still come out great.
We hope we have been able to let you see the advantages of keeping memories. no memories is too small to be lost.
Always take pictures and video recording of your moments, with your mobile phone and lot of cloud storage facility, you should not worry too much about loosing, damages or space on your mobile phone.

According to a website fee. Org there are 5 characteristics of best gift which are :
It is christmas season and we are sure you will be thinking of giving your friends and family gift, we’ll before you conclude, we will want you to look at the characteristics above before getting them something.
We will suggest a caricature has all these characteristics and even more if you are finding it hard to choose a particular item.
See for example?
What is thoughtful, unique, surprising, useful and meaningful about the above image.
The caricature above is illustrated with a man holding a hand trowel building an Africa statue.
Thoughfulness : Is the above image thoughtful, will you say yes or no? It is, thoughtful not because it’s an artwork it’s also because it has tendency of making the viewer laugh which is (caricature) for you to give someone not just an artwork but an artwork that tells a story about the beneficiary and of all makes them laugh.
2. Uniqueness : when you want to give a gift and you’re thinking of a unique gift, one thing you can always be sure of is that a commissioned caricature will always be unique, it won’t be a commodity or thing you can purchase somewhere or anywhere in other words it is only the beneficiary that owns that piece alone in the whole wide world of 7billion people.
3. Surprising: Do you this this is surprising? Definitely it is, the beneficiary can never imagine what he or she will be expressed as, even if the beneficiary receives caricatures from people everyday, it will always surprise the beneficiary because, of course they will all be created with different concept, telling different stories, so in a nutshell itbis surprising.
4. Usefulness : Now if you look close to the image above, it illustrates Akinwumi Adesina holding a hand trowel, crying bucket filled with cement and building a statue that looks like Africa’s map, this illustration simply means the man (Akinwumi Adriana) is pert of those working tirelessly to build Africa, if not anything this keeps him reminded of his will and interest anytime he sees the artwork.
5. Meaningful: All that is illustrated makes sense, it tells story about the beneficiary, about what the giver thinks of the beneficiary which makes the gift qualify for the fifth character.
Now it’s Xmas time and am sure on your mind you will want to give best, a gift that will also qualify for durability character, which will be able to serve long so you or the beneficiary can always point finger to even after 25 years time.

We know it’s hard choosing best gift to give to a colleague,boss,friend, partner, family, that will soon retire because first you will want to give them a unique, personalized gift that will last, if possible, forever.
Now let’s look at some items that are possibly best for retirements, so to list these items we visited a blog called considerables for 10 most creative retirement gifts,
Scratch of travel jounal
Personalized photo frane
Clock with a quote
Whisky making kit
New hobby box
Above mentioned items were the great items that made the first 10 of considerables, but now do you think it includes a very personalised one?
Yes, you can add text which could make it personalized, but wouldn’t you want to make your gift as personal as possible?
Making your gift unique and personal is the real goal of all gift giver, this will make the beneficiary have the giver forever on his or her mind.
Have you ever thought of showing your beneficiary his or her future after returement, how adorable do you think that will be for a person that is at the edge of retiring, they will be happy to see things that showed them about what you think about them or their future.
In the above caricature, we illustrated somethings which are element or retirement, like the wall clock, the mobile phone message pop up column, the fruits and of course the bed, all these indicates that the subject is retired and now it’s time for him to enjoy himself, for example the clock being embraced by the subject means, now the subject has time as his friend, no more resume time, and if you look deep the clock says 11:00am and he is still in bed.
Also we added the message pop up to indicate investment will start paying up And with the department message still scripted on the artwork it still makes it more personally.
What is your idea, we will express in funny caricatures so the beneficiary will wake up and get to see what you wish him/her after retirement, there is no any other better way to motivate and inspire the retiree.
This is just a sample, we can help express what ever the idea you have in you, also we can help advise on how vest the artwork can be produced.
