A very fun caricature by JayFosgitt A very fun caricature by JayFosgitt
I've drawn caricatures for twenty years as part of my profession as a cartoonist. Typically I'm asked to draw people in a pleasant, smiling pose, which is fine, but by no means interesting. Partly because of this, and because of my personal rule to make all my caricatures complimentary no matter what, I rarely have any real fun drawing them.

I recently came across this photo of an old high school acquaintance of mine, who took a picture of herself in a mock expression of fury. Because of the wonderful, exaggerated expression, and because it was something I drew just to entertain myself, I had an absolute blast capturing that manic look. The best caricatures I draw are the ones I do for myself, typically without the knowledge of the subject. There's a freedom to it that's hard to describe, but it's pure creative bliss.

Of course, if this girl finds out I drew her as such, the expression might not be mock much longer...

Can you draw the bodies to accompany them or can you only draw the head?

I can draw the bodies if I choose. But I employ most of my caricatures as facial studies, so it's not necessary.

Good job!

If she has kids, she should hang copies of this picture in every room of the house. She'll have the best-behaved kids on the planet! Grrrrrrrrrrrrr!
