Caricature is a distorted picture of a person, intended to be humorous, satirical, or insulting. The caricaturist usually exaggerates an easily recognized feature of the subject's appearance or habits, such as a large nose, bushy eyebrows, an unfriendly expression or a distinctive way of dressing.
Until recently, affectionate caricature was less common, which emphasizes some admired or warmly regarded trait. The subject of a caricature may be either a particular person or an easily recognizable type. Usually the caricature can be appreciated only if its subject is well known.
A political cartoon, for example, may caricature a public figure by endowing him with animal characteristics. Political leaders are constantly caricatured in cartoons that appear in newspapers and magazines. These caricatures are intended as comments on political events, and they may show politicians as praiseworthy, ridiculous or even evil.
Literary forms of caricature include satire, parody, and burlesque, all of which ridicule subjects through comic exaggeration. The term "caricature", however, generally refers to pictorial representations.
Caricature in the modern sense, the distortion of a real person or type, was first practiced by such Renaissance artists as Leonardo da Vinci and Albrecht Diirer. Extreme exaggeration characterizes the 16th-century grotesque art of Hieronymus Bosch and Pieter Brueghel. At the same time, caricature became an independent art in the satirical portraits of Annibale Carracci.
The term caricatura was first used by Annibale Carracci, the classical painter, to signify drawings pregnant with wit (caricare, to load).

My name’s Steven. As a kid, I would always find myself at the opposite end of 2B Venus. I drew my way through high school, the Navy and art school. I started to sell cartoons to the major mags and soon got into the ad agency loop with cartoons in audio-visual presentations. Free-lanced my way from studio to studio in the Big Apple. Tried to syndicate but always came up with something that was ahead of its time. Started to caricature for some extra income and finally established myself in doing Cartoon Portraits as I'm doing now. At this point, I work from photos only. A photo will not move and it won't talk back as when you would work a live audience. I submit a rough idea to a client and once approved of the content I go into finished art and then go to mailing. As long as I can keep these creative juices going I’ll keep on drawing because I feel that if ya snooze you're gonna lose.
