Caricatures for a Cause

Twin Cities Caricatures has made giving back to organizations and communities a priority. The Caricatures for a Cause program was developed in the fall of 2018 and has been a great success!


Twin Cities Caricatures partners with organizations to offer a fun and memorable way to engage community support, while also working to raise funds needed for those organizations to continue to thrive. If you would like to partner with Twin Cities Caricatures, please visit our Partner Up page. There you will find more information about how our fundraisers work, and you can submit a partnership request. We look forward to working with you!

Our Coloring for a Cause coloring book was introduced in July 2020. The coloring book contains 20 different dog breeds and each has an accompanying “accessory” for you to color in as well! The simplified black and white lines allow for maximum creativity as you color! Create your own mandala pattern, stripes, spots, rainbows, or anything else you can dream up!


We have also included some facts about each dog breed featured! The only thing better than a coloring book is one that also teaches you a little something too. The information we have included may inspire how you color each page as well!


You also have the option to customize the back cover of your coloring book! We can create a black and white line drawing of you, your significant other, your child, your pet, almost anything. Then you get to color it in! We can draw one face per coloring book. Just upload a photo, or a few, with your order!

A Pile of Pooches! (Traditional)

This was fun drawing to do! One of these dogs had previously passed, but was still very much part of the family, so she is, of course, part of the drawing!
