About Us

Caricatures From Photos specialises in premium caricature art gifts!

My goal is to bring art back into your home that you will love and cherish. I accomplish this by creating artwork that is personalized, stylish and gob-smacking good!

Because my artwork is drawn by hand and finished digitally (its like drawing and painting on paper but using a computer tablet instead) I’m able to provide affordable rates for a top quality product that rivals traditional illustrative artworks.

So when you purchase a caricature from me for a birthday, wedding, anniversary, farewell or any other event, you can be rest assured knowing that what you will soon hold in your hands is an exclusive one of a kind art piece you will be absolutely proud to hang on your wall.

I cannot wait to paint your face 🙂

Hi my name is Kodi and i’m a Perth Based Caricature Artist.

Less than a year ago I was working as a professional web designer and had done so for the last 15 years, while using my evenings, weekends and long commutes to work, to level up to a professional art level so one day i’d become that totally awesome creator I had always promised myself i’d become.

Fortunately (well not so fortunately at the time) in December 2015, on a Tuesday at 4.30pm in the afternoon, 2 weeks from finishing the working year I was fired from my web job. As difficult as it was at the time I promised myself that it would be the absolute last time I web design full time. Since then I have been working day and night to make sure that I keep that promise.

CaricaturesFromPhotos.com.au was a side venture I created back in 2012 and due to being so busy with web work I ended up making the difficult decision of putting it on hold (well  to be honest I didn’t actually decide it, it just happened because I had web work coming out my ears).

But to everyones joy and amazement the website is back!

So what you see now is a relaunch of the website and the caricature services I provide, which in time will expand to bigger and better things.

As part of my leap into becoming a full time artist I have also created another art venture – ArtofEmpowerment.co. Where Caricatures From Photos gives me an outlet to create fun and cartoon style illustrations, Art of Empowerment is my platform to get a bit serious, a bit thoughtful and a bit stylish with my artwork.

Some things about me that are completely irrelevant to art:

  • I saw Cowspiracy in January 2016 and was convinced veganism was the only way to eat, until 5 months later I caved because I got bored of eating the same thing everyday (my diet now consists of only 1/3 animal products and I feel much better as a result)
  • in 2013 I ran in pretty much every mud run that came to Perth (it was super popular back then) The Stampede, Warrior Dash, Spartan Race and a few others, which I did in order to more or less practice for the big one at the end of the year – the 20km Tough Mudder. A week before the event I did a trial run on a different course feeling as fit as ever until I got overly cocky on one obstacle and broke my left ankle in 3 places as a result. Needless to say I don’t do that sorta thing anymore.
  • In 2007 I moved to Brisbane without much of a plan except to get work as an artist and after a month of finding nothing I ended up taking a night job cleaning commercial flight cabins. It was there that I discovered Emirates first class has a golden toilet (fortunately I never had to clean the toilets because I was the vacuum guy, but seriously that was just weird).
