This section of the site is intended for people
who want to learn how to draw caricatures. There are
many styles of doing caricatures, but the only style I
can effectively teach is my own. My style comes from a
love of drawing portraits and cartoons, so my style is
sort of a cartoony-portrait style. I really think it
will help if you know a little bit about drawing people
in a "straight" way before you start messing them up in
a caricature. So if you'd like to learn about
DRAWING PEOPLE, check out that section of this site.
An example of my caricatures
The style of caricature that I've developed is a
"quick" style. I try to get as much detail in the
drawing as possible with as few lines as possible. I
spent many years drawing caricatures for people where I
worked on a per-drawing basis, so the more I drew the
more money I made. I was able to draw a complete
caricature of one person in under 10 minutes. So because
of that, my style evolved into something that (I hope)
looks finished, but not rushed. This is the style that I
I will go through caricaturing step by step and I
encourage you to follow along and do the drawings as you
read about them. Copy the lines I show you and copy the
caricatures I draw. Try and mimic my style, but I
strongly encourage you to develop your own style of
drawing. Take what you like about what I teach, but
disregard anything you don't like or disagree with. Draw
your own lines and shapes and shade them how you like.
Study my caricature style, but also study other
caricature artists and take what you like about their
style as well.
"Yeah, yeah... Let's DRAW already!" Ok, I hear ya...
