As I am sure you know by now (if you have been following me for any time), I love to find artists in South Africa. I have found some really talented men & women, & have some super special artwork displayed in our house because of that.
I have had an idea for a new blog image for Flowercrowns & Treatment for some time, but have been looking for a style that really spoke to me & reflected who I really am in 2020. I wanted something fun, colourful & happy! And it was time for an update as I am no longer that sick little girl that I was just over a year ago…
I spent hours googling artists in South Africa. I looked at their images, I spoke to friends & I asked for advice. And then, finally, I discovered Oodles of Doodles. I knew I had found something really special, & instantly wanted to have a picture done. And you will see why this is my new feature image now!

Why are you so passionate about what you do: Shaun is passionate about his drawing as it takes him to a different world. It lets him escape his usual hustle and bustle of work that is more corporate. It allows him to express his artistic flair in a fun manner that brings joy to others as well. So many people enjoy his work and seeing the fun they have with the caricatures brings him joy too.
What has been your personal favourite piece:
I would say, Christian and James. They both just captured the people’s personalities so well.
Quote you live by: It would have to be “Excelsior” by Stan Lee a huge role model to Shaun since he was a child (even to me)
“You know, my motto is ‘Excelsior.’ That’s an old word that means ‘upward and onward to greater glory’. – Stan Lee
Anything else you want to add:
Shaun hopes to keep drawing his amazing caricatures for people and we also hope that you look at the rest of our company for other amazing branding solutions.
I’m sure you can see why I was so attracted to the work that they do, & now, I cannot wait to show you my new official image for Flowercrowns & Treatment… Drumroll please!
I couldn’t be happier with how this has turned out, & really love the idea of using a unique image to portray your personality on your website, email signatures & social media channels.
