Cool Caricaturist – Jan Op De Beeck

Jan Op De Beeck is a Congo-born Belgian Caricaturist. He has written five caricature books and had won several awards. Find his portfolio at:

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.

The Noses – Nicole Kidman and the Bloodhounds!

What’s there in a nose?

A lot, if those attached to the noses are Nicole Kidman and the Bloodhounds.

Caricature of Hollywood Celebrity Nicole Kidman, her nose, and two critical bloodhounds.

Looks aren’t everything…especially with the Bloodhounds!

Didn’t sniff someone’s butt properly – did she?

Caricaturist Neil K Kempsell’s Work

Neil K Kempsell’s gallery can be found at http://www.mycaricatures.co.uk/ He’s great at bringing out the expressions that characterize the subjects of his caricatures. What first took me to his site was this caricature of Jack Nicholson.

(Note Added on January 15, 2010: Please view my attempt at Jack Nicholson’s caricature here.)

His Celebrity Caricatures can be found here.

Kempsell not only creates caricatures, he’s also a prolific cartoonist. View his cartoons here.

I’ll be posting the result of my own Celebrity Caricature drawing effort (Nicole Kidman) tomorrow. Will you please visit again:)
