Caricature is king

The art of caricature is more than just a funny drawing of a face.

The origins of caricature centred around making a statement and political caricature is a powerful force, just look at Gerald Scarfe and his famous caricature of Margaret Thatcher!

But it also has the entertainment element associated with it and rightly so. Caricature entertainment is a really great way to have fun and leave people with a unique memento!

One very interesting aspect of caricature is how you can have so many different versions of one face but they all look like the person who has been drawn!






Above are a number of caricatures of my ugly mug and as you can see, a variety of different drawings but all looking like me! Scary!

That is why for me, Caricature is KIng!
