Ten Most Caricature-able People of 2009

December 16th, 2009 | Posted in News

The International Society of Caricature Artists (ISCA) of which I am a member, started a new tradition this year where they release their list of the ‘Top Ten Most Interesting Faces of the Year“. . . interesting as in most suited for caricature. It’s a fun idea and while everyone and their brother publishes a “Most Whatever of the Year” list in December it’s a pretty unique list compared to most. ISCA president Robert Bauer and the organization’s board tapped a few members to do a caricature of one of the list of ten.

Here’s the official press release:

A nice collection of art by ten different ISCA members including Lorin Bernsen, Lar DeSouza, Glenn Ferguson, Roger Hurtado, Court Jones, Ron Kantrowitz, Paul Moyse, Jason Seiler, Ed Steckley and myself. My contribution is an inked and colored version of a sketch I did of Susan Boyle this past spring:

The process of choosing the ten faces was based on examining both their impact/relevance on the year and the aesthetic nature of their faces, and included input from many members via the ISCA’s private online forum.

Like I said, a fun idea and nicely put together by the ISCA.

    The Kim Jong Il of yesteryear was easier to caricature.
    He is very sickly and gaunt looking today and does not have that ridiculous hair anymore….probably lost from chemo….who knows?
