About Us

GiveAcaricature.com is part of Leading Edge Gifts LLC, a privately held company in Gilbert, Arizona. Our mission:  Provide radically unique gift ideas that are fun to give and even more fun to receive!  We think caricature gifts are special because they capture sentimental things in a fun and unexpected way.

In 2005 we teamed with Eric Jones and his creative group to launch GiveAcaricature.com - combining this unique caricature style with outstanding customer service and business systems - the response has been overwhelming! Just check out our reviews.

 

Sincerely,

Creative Team

Eric

Led by Eric (Co-Founder), this team is, well.....creative! Eric is a true caricature artist with a radically unique style and uncanny ability to capture the essence and likeness of the subject in an artistic and humorous way. Inspired by Sebastian Kruger and Court Jones (the Michael Jordan's of caricatures), Eric has drawn well over 40,000 caricatures and has other artistic talents as well - we just don't let him do anything else.

Marv

Marvin is his sidekick and our coloring guru with over 30 years of experience in various artistic fields including graphic design.  His artistic talent and attention to detail help create artwork that is unsurpassed.

Kalene

Kalene, a recent art school graduate, is involved in artwork preparation and some artwork creation/coloring.

As you can see, we are not, and will never be a production shop churning out artwork - each order gets our personal attention. Our team of artists is purposely kept small to insure consistency and the highest quality of artwork and humor.

Customer Service & Business Team

Hannah

Our Customer service team is what allows our artists to do artsy stuff. Customer care is their middle name (ok, two names). They are the ones that make sure your customer experience is as phenomenal as the artwork you receive. Just check out our reviews.

Hannah is our team lead. She loves to hear about customers needing their gift by yesterday. "Well, if we get the artists to work real hard and we take a trip in our time machine, we can make it!"

Emily

If you call on the phone you are likely to get either Hannah or Emily.

It's impossible to ask a dumb question that Emily hasn't heard before so bring it on! (that doesn't mean that we can't laugh about it in the office). Odds are that after an email or a phone call with Emily, you'll think she's the nicest person in the world....she is!

Betty

Among other things, Betty reviews your photos. She's the one that gets to explain why your fuzzy, quarter-inch photo might not be enough for the artist to work with.

Leslie

Co-Founder - involved in business and systems and processes. If it's broken, it's her fault.

Rick

Co-Founder. Still researching what he does other than write bios for the team page. Also involved in marketing this business which has everyone scratching their head when considering the fantastic artwork markets itself!

Pepper

Pepper is the team mascot whose main function is to help reduce stress during chaotic times.
