Caricature

09Nov07

The art of the caricature has always astounded me. How do these brilliant illustrators simplify a person’s character to  their absolute essence without watering it down? My new favourite caricaturist is now Noma Bar thanks to a new book by Steven Heller called Guess Who? The Many Faces of Noma Bar. (See how I have made the title of the book as italics? That’s what you need to do in your copy with all titles of books, art and music)

The one of George W. Bush is so good it hurts.  Link>

Previous to Noma, my favourite was André Carrilho, a Portugese illustrator who does lots of work for the New York Times, Harper’s, The Independent On Sunday and Vanity Fair. Link >
