Cartoon Yourself with The Custom Cartoon Bakery

Custom Cartoon BakeryI've always found there to be something really special about items that have been specially made or designed just for you, so when I received an email from The Custom Cartoon Bakery I jumped at the chance to have myself turned into a cartoon.

The Custom Cartoon Bakery offers a number of different styles from doodles to TV Inspired (think Simpsons, Family Guy, Futurama, American Dad etc) to Superheros and Princesses, each category has dedicated artists who will take your favourite picture/s of yourself, friends or family and turn it into a one off masterpiece in the style of your choosing. Each portraitΒ is available in one of two ways – via digital download with images presented in high quality A3, A4 and A5 files and prices starting at Β£35 or you could choose to have your new self, printed straight onto an A3 canvas where prices start at Β£75 (prices stated are for pictures of one person).

Custom Cartoon BakeryAfter a while of thinking and a lot of mind changing I decided to go for an anime style for myself – I think it's something about the eyes on them, they always make me smile, that finally made me settle on anime as my final choice. Then when it came to choosing the picture I left it to the lovely Laura to have a nose around the blog and find one which best suited the type The Custom Cartoon Bakery artists look for, to give all of you an idea of what to send if you decide to have one done yourself.

Each cartoon takes between 7 and 14 days to complete depending on how busy the artists are so if you are looking to order one for a special occasion make sure you leave enough time and of course if you're looking to order a canvas factor in print and delivery time as well.

Custom Cartoon Bakery I personally am totally over the moon with my new anime me and if you know me on Facebook you may well have noticed it has become my profile picture. I think without meeting me or really having talked to me they artist managed to capture a few of my favourite things including animals and the outdoors.

If you want to have a look through all the cartoons available or order yourself a picture pop on over to The Custom Cartoon BakeryΒ where if you use the code: LifeInABreakdown you will receive 20% off your order!

What do you think of anime Sarah, what style of picture would you go for?

    Oh jeez – now I am going to spend hours on their site doing this LOL.

    • Laura

  2. Michele

    I think that is really really really cute! I think I will not do this cause I am camera shy and there are very few pics of me anywhere in this world!!

    • Laura

      Hehe, thanks Michele. Cartoons are the perfect anti-dote to camera-shy… even the best airbrushing can’t make you as perfect as a cartoon artist πŸ™‚

We have artists who do bespoke drawings for you, and lots of styles ranging from Sarah’s Anime to princesses, superheros, TV characters etc. So Bitstrips is instant and quick fix and DIY, we are bespoke and by artists. Let me know if you have any other comments/questions/suggestions! Laura
