Caricature (Class drawing and learning)

After doing distortion for two weeks we did a caricature session which involves copying some drawings done by a top caricaturist called Howard McWilliam. He does the front cover of the Week magazine which are usually satirical and often political. There are some images of the group working on this topic followed by a few examples of the work done.

 

This proved to be an interesting and challenging subject. It was said that it can be hard to go with the exaggerations and there is a temptation to normalise the distortions. We also dicovered how good the original illustrations are in their likeness, the tension of compostition and skill at getting a message across.
