Each Friday for the next several weeks I will post the opening pages to a chapter of my book, The Mad Art of Caricature!, along with a description of the chapter’s contents. Since I’ve already done this for chapters one , two, and nine, that leaves five more chapters after this week, which should be about right for the arrival of the printed books on my doorstep.
Chapter Three is about head shapes, which I consider to be the most important aspect of doing caricature. In it I discuss why they are so important, techniques to “see” them and to simplify them so they are easier to draw and exaggerate, the important parts of the anatomy of the skull and musculature that pertain to caricaturing and several concepts for exaggerating the head shape. As with the rest of the book, the chapter is illustrated with dozens of black and white and full color illustrations. The chapter consists of 14 pages and contains over 25 illustrations.
You can pre-order The Mad Art of Caricature! here. Shipping to commence immediately after printed books arrive in late September.
