I agree with De Beeck – Sketches are Swell to do. I quote him.

In a sketch you can discover lot of an artist’s abilities: how he makes the proportional deformations, how he draws a line, how he prepares his drawing for volume rendering.

I’d like to add that sometimes a sketch progresses to a level where it transforms into a complete work of art.

De Beeck’s caricatures have an astounding level of detail. He too isn’t afraid of breaking the templates! The characteristic features of his subjects swell or shrink at his command!

Here are some links to help you explore his art.

Cool Caricaturist – Court Jones!

Court Jones’ Caricatures are bold and they push the boundaries of exaggeration beyond the edge of the cliff! He is a distortionist who manages to remain a caricaturist, making his creations swing between fun and ridicule!

Here are some links you should click to appreciate my eulogy.

  1. Abraham Lincoln
  2. Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal
  3. Michael Jackson
  4. Barack Obama
  5. Sylvester Stallone

And the best of all is the verbal-visual caricature of Court Jones himself. While you are at this link, you can also browse through the list of his awards (it’s a long one!)
