Caricatures for Echelon Magazine

Exaggeration and Brevity

Caricatures are an interesting art form. It takes a caricature artist only a few moments of study to really scrutinize the building blocks of a person. It is quite challenging to really nail this, mostly because it’s a number of minute quirks in our facial features that really make a person who they are. I have never tackled a caricature before this project came along and I found it tough to tackle (and in my opinion, didn’t succeed 100%). The project did get approved though, so that’s a win.

I found newfound respect for the art form. After all, you must be wary of those who can glimpse a piece of your soul after only a minute observation.
