Caricatures can be insulting or complimentary and can serve a political purpose or be drawn solely for entertainment. Caricatures of politicians are commonly used in editorial cartoon, while caricatures of movie stars are often found in entertainment magazines.
Errr... I do not really do my caricature as the above professional style... I prefer 'soft touch' in my drawing, because it represents what I think, therefore, my work look more like a comic character as shown below. ^ ^
This is a Japan 17 years old artist and stage performer--Sakamoto Shogo (阪本奖悟)
Recently, I got to know a young Malaysia caricature artist, Triton Lim. (http://tritonlimartist.blogspot.com/) He earnestly wish to introduce caricature to Malaysian Chinese (which actually very popular in Malay art industry), so he works very hard doing lot of activities in most of the shopping malls, fighting for opportunities to have a space during the book fair, wedding expo, etc. I went to his stall in Bangsar Mall once and had a short communication with him.
Surprisingly, he is a bit shy and quiet. Instead of watching the walk in customers spend their own sweet time looking at the caricature works he hung in the stall and he quietly stay at the corner looking at them, I started to help him to entertain the walk in customers.
I mean... we must always share the good things... ...^ ^
He will be stronger next time and he will grow big in the future!
