Ivy Gladstone

"I've been drawing since I was 4 years old. I graduated high school from Central de Artes Visuales and I was a student at Escuela Artes Plasticas. I never got the chance to finish, but It really turned around for me when i got a job at Editorial Santillana as an illustrator. There, I illustrated the cover art for the series Yabisí, and the interiors for textbooks on all subjects.

I now illustrate at Dreyfous & Assoc. creating images for educational purposes while also doing freelance work on the side."

Common Questions

An online, digital caricature service. You send us a photo, we draw you. It's just that simple.
Iconize Me starts at $60 per individual face. If you would like multiple caricatures or any custom work, you can contact us for more information.
You need to provide us with a big, clear photo of your happy, smiling face. Do you want to send more than just one photo reference? Even better! Just make sure you send photos that accurately represent what you want your final icon to look like. After placing an order, you'll be given an opportunity to email the photo reference(s) to us. If you prefer, you can also wait for us to email you.
JPEG is always nice, but we accept any other popular file format. (GIF, TIFF, PICT, PNG, BMP, PSD, etc.)
For the base price, we will draw one person from the chest up. If you'd like an icon with more than one subject, a greater scope, or anything out-of-the-ordinary please contact us for a quote.
As a zip file to your email. We can also provide a Dropbox link.
Usually around 1-2 megabytes per individual caricature ordered.
A PDF file (sometimes vector-based, depending on the artist and technique used), a high-resolution JPEG, and a PNG file. Both the PDF and the PNG will have an alpha channel, which means you can place it on a colored background.
We use PDF because it's the most popular file format on the planet, and for good reason too. For instance, vector-based PDFs are super high resolution files that you can use at any size without loss of quality. We also include other popular file formats such as JPEG, and a transparent PNG for simple Web-use. That said, if you would like a specific file format (such as PSD) simply include your request under the comments section and we'll be happy to take care of you.
PayPal. All major credit cards as well as eChecks are accepted. Sorry, we can not accept other forms of payment.
Over the years, we've had incredible success and a really tremendous satisfaction rate. Doing this consistently isn't easy, and gathering someone's likeness from a single photo can be very difficult – but we pride ourselves on doing the very best job we can. If for any reason you're not satisfied, please let us know. We never want a customer to be unhappy with their order.
While completion time for each icon can vary (depending on complexity and artist), the time frame in-which your order will be delivered is usually between 1 to 4 weeks. Iconize Me is a side project for us, and depending on demand there may be several orders ahead of yours that need to be completed. This is always subject to change. Please contact us if you have questions.
