Caricature: a portrait that exaggerates or distorts the essence of a person or thing to create an easily-identifiable visual likeness.
For many years I’ve been intrigued by the art and craft of celebrity caricatures. Whenever I seem to doodle or sketch, my subject of choice seems to always be cartoon-like faces. Maybe caricatures are the next challenge for me? There’s a certain allure in caricatures where key features are exaggerated to great lengths. I have never really tried my hand at this type of skilled illustration. Perhaps, someday soon. Enjoy this gallery from a wide range of gifted artists.
