This week I got the chance to pick the brain of Bryan Vorce the creator of caricaturecars, an awesome service where Bryan turns your car into a eye catching and original minicar. We have always been fans of his work and after recently placing some orders ourselves can say that it is top notch. Check out our Q&A below and be sure to visit www.vorcephotog.com to order yours today! Use promo code "staynmoist" to get 10% off of your edit today.
When did you start carcaricatures?
I started Caricature Cars back in 2014. Started as Vorce Minicars (VMC) under my photography name. After about a year or so nothing was really catching having them mixed in with my personal IG I decided to in march 2016 to create it's own IG page. After 2 name changes I stuck with @caricaturecars and with the subname Micromachines
What made you first want to try that style of edit, inspirations?
As a kid growing up I always loved cars, but really loved the cool cartoon drawings of different cars you would see people do at fairs and stuff. So I was sitting there one day and got the idea to figure out how to do it with real photos. So after about 6 hours of photoshop and figuring out how to do it I eventually went with a more realistic squished version known as the minicars or micromachines
What have you learned throughout growing your art/ business?
Honestly, it's to not devalue my time and efforts in something I learned how to do for others amusement. I've learned those willing to pay for someone's services are your best supporters vs someone who got it for free. Yes I love doing them, but I do have a life outside of it and I wish more people would understand and respect the work that goes into it and not ask for shoutouts as payment or just freebies.
Future plans/goals for the business?
I hope to grow and for micromachines to become better known. Increase my skills in editing to possibly offer more and different kinds of edits. Maybe get with some big name people or corporations to create some kind of toy that would be really awesome. Maybe micromachine pillows or air freshners. I'm slowly adding more product to options such as canvas and metal prints to create more of a product that people can give as gifts and more.
In your own words what does "StayNmoist" mean to you?
StayNmoist always to me meant keeping things fresh, new, creative. Being a former member and hanging out with them at events was a great time. Group really comes together as one and puts on a good time.
