Art, politics, angels, demons . . . and righteous dogs.

Caricature is . . .

Caricature, which is a subcategory of illustration, is about finding the narrative elements within a portrait and making them clear as tools in making literal and figurative points. When done for publication, it is not merely about making big things bigger and small things smaller.  It is storytelling.  This involves knowledge about what is under the surface of a face and teasing it to the top. Caricature is not the destination.  It is the journey.
