I believe it’s time for me to take a break…from Hollywood!

The next few caricatures shall be drawn from history:-)

Here’s the list that I came up with:
1. Alexander the Great
2. Napoleon Bonaparte
3. Abraham Lincoln
4. Cleopatra
5. Leonardo da Vinci

I’ll be grateful for your inputs on this, so even if you are chance visitor who landed on this page through a search, please stop and add your top five. Next, click the “Subscribe and Get Caricatures in your email” link at the top right of the sidebar:-) I could be drawing caricatures from your list, and it would be really nice if I could share it with you.

All the best – I am glad you visited, and I hope you will return.

  1. You have some excellent choices. I would definitely keep Cleopatra. Here are some other thoughts:

    1. Mother Theresa
    2. Ghengis Khan
    3. Martin Luther King Jr.
    4. Ghandi
    5. William Shakespeare

    I look forward to the historical figures. I find them much more interesting than hollywood.


    • Dear Mr. Mills,

      Thanks for sharing your top-five historical figures:-)

      For the first lot of caricatures, I’ve selected:

      Martin Luther King Jr.

      The other names on the list have found their way into my ideas box 🙂

      Warm Regards,


  2. Shakespeare?
    Jane Austen?
    Oliver Cromwell?(this one is already a caricature as he asked to be painted “warts and all” in an era when realism in portrature was not the done thing!)
    Caesar (either Julius or Augustus)
    I shall go and think!


    • Thanks, Viv.

      I’ve selected the following from your list for the first lot:

      Julius Caesar

      Putting the others into my ideas-box (I have a wooden box in which I put all the ideas and then draw a chit.)

      Warm Regards,


Leave your footprints behind :)
