The art of caricature

Posted: April 5, 2016 in caricatures-and-cartoons
Caricature is the art of seeing clearly points of recognition and their differences, then relaying them visually in exaggerrated form, to illustrate those points clearly to the untrained eye.
If you do not have a trained eye and cannot see those points, then you cannot create caricatures. Seeing skills are far more important than drawing skills in my opinion!
Any fool can draw, but the gift of mindfulness and observation is much more rare.
“They just pick on your worst bits and exaggerrate them!” is hardly a fair synopsis of our skill….
