We got this gift caricature order with a rather unusual request but nevertheless interesting and fun to draw.
We got your address from the internet and hope you can assist us.
A friend of ours was recently ‘knighted’ in Spain, an award for services to the medical industry. We would like to give him a small picture (sketch) gift which basically shows him being ‘knighted’ by a ‘King’ with sword and with him kneeling in front of the king.
The picture to be a sketch (no significant detail) other than obviously reflecting the king in any period attire, a man kneeling in front but importantly the sketch of the man’s face must be of a very good likeness to our friend – Robert Gaines-Cooper.
For your assistance please see the attached sheet where I have pasted a picture of our friend (Robert) and also three ‘examples’ of someone being knighted.
The sketch would be either on a A5 or A4 hard card (white) with the sketch in black. At the bottom under the sketch it would say ““Levántese Señor Gaines-Cooper”
As indicated no real details as long as it resembles a ‘scene’ of a knighting and the Kings face can be obscured but the face of Robert to be clearly him.
Hopefully what I have supplied you assists but please revert with questions, suggestions and a price!
We would need the drawing by Monday of next week if agreed.
Just a note of thanks for doing a great job. The picture was presented to our friend who was delighted.
We will definitely use your service and skills again.
