Some cool celebrity caricatures
Pete Emslie, a Canadian-born artist who works mostly as an illustrator for Disney merchandise and children's books, has a site with some really amazing caricatures, many of them television celebrities. His drawing of Larry King is on the right, but also check out this drawing of Don Rickles from Jeff Pidgeon's blog, where I first read about Emslie's site.
As Pidgeon points out, Emslie's caricature is more than just a good likeness, it also captures the essence of the real person. That mischievous grin and those bright ornery eyes tell volumes. I also love how King's shoulders are almost higher than his head.
I also love this drawing of Jerry Orbach and Sam Waterston from Law and Order, and this one of the Seinfeld crew. I don't pretend to know anything about drawing caricatures, but it always amazes me how exaggerating just a few features can result in a cartoon version of a person that is instantly recognizable.
