This has been my Tenth Year doing Caricatures! How Do I Do A Caricature?
Drawing Caricatures all year has been such a source of joy for me, and after the reduced events of the past two years, it was so much fun, doing caricatures at parties, weddings, festivals and graduation events! I think I have had more gigs this year than before the Pandemic, which is really meaningful to me, since this is my tenth year doing caricatures!
Below are photos from a few of my Fall gigs!
Some people always ask me what part of the face I choose to exaggerate first and how I decide that. I don't really think about it consciously, because I'm used to doing this. But If I take the time to think about it I would choose to increase or reduce whatever stands out to me first when I look at a person. Large ears will be larger, small eyes smaller, long hair, longer- all compared to the rest of the face.

Here are some of the custom works that I did in the studio this year! There were ordered through my Etsy Shop.

What a great Christmas gift!
