Does dad love cartoons? Get the big man recreated in the form of his favourite cartoon – be it a superhero, a character from The Simpsons or more – and you will definitely warrant a big smile on his face. Here’s how it works. Head on over to the website and pick the number of people you want to be included in the portrait – you can choose to have dad alone or the whole family transformed, including your pet. Next, choose from full-body or shoulder up, select the cartoon, pick a size and finally the background. The team will then get to work to ‘cartoonify’ you. You can choose to receive a digital file or have it sent to you on canvas (takes 14 days for delivery). Prices vary depending on the options above.
