Default Caricaturist Asking Your Advice

Hi, Friends!

I've been working on a collection of caricatures of great historical figures.
Now, I need some feedback about the drawings and some advice about some options of the business that are still open. So, I prepared a brief presentation of the ideia, with some few direct questions about it.
For those of you who are willing to help me, here it is my caricatures presentation. It will take you just 2 or 3 minutes.

I would be most appreciated if you give me your advice!
Thank you!

Hi! I checked the link. Sorry, didn't complete the survey. I think the art is great! Drawings are excellent.

My questions is based on marketing. If you want to be successful, you MUST sell things people are looking for. Is there a market?? I am not asking if you THINK there should be a market... I am asking if there are people would would lay down money to own one.

When you can answer that honestly... you will have your answer.

Thanks, BeTheBest, I'm happy you like them!
I hope there is a market, that's what I'm trying to find out with the survey.
The comments I received tells me there is a narrow market, but if can reach it I can be successfull. Also people sugest me other kind of products with the caricatures.
The answers I've been getting are good, I think. They are still few, so I can't really draw any conclusion.

With talent like yours I would be marketing my work to everyone. You could totally open up a new market for yourself by having people submit photos of themselves, friends, or family whereby you will create caricatures.

Just an idea.

Rhettroweb, thanks a lot for your comment.

I'm trying to find my market for the historic figures.
The costum caricature it would have to be different, because this type of drawing takes a lot of time to do, and the price would be enourmus.
Your ideia is logic, but it would imply a different kind of technique.
To reach more quality, I choose to do a collection of public figures, by selling only cheaper reproductions.
