So how come caricature sketching remains so popular?
I mean, caricature art is everywhere. From the pages of newspapers and magazines to theme parks and any oceanfront boardwalk, it seems we just can’t get enough of seeing ourselves, friends and family, or celebrities and political figures, drawn this way.
For centuries now, artists have used caricatures to create comic (but nearly always complimentary) portraits of friends, family, and clients.
Caricature art has also often been used to poke fun at famous people, and has even changed the way people vote in elections thanks to satirical (and sometimes cruel) observations of our political leaders.
In fact, you could say caricature art has the power to change the world!
But what makes a great caricature? And how do caricature artists learn to see things differently to the rest of us?
You’re about to find out…
