Hard to believe, but my book The Mad Art of Caricature!- A Serious Guide to Drawing Funny Faces already needs to do a second printing. This is not going to be a second edition . . . there won’t be any new material added. It is merely a second run of the original book.
That said, I do have an opportunity here to correct a few of the stray typos and errors that snuck past my copy editors and myself the first time around. Believe me, the fact that these errors are so few and far between is a testament to the hard work and expert knowledge of my editor (and damn good caricaturist) Celestia Ward and the additional input of Emily Anthony, also a terrific caricaturist. One thing Celestia told me right away . . . there is no such thing as a perfect book. No matter how many eyes you have looking it over, something will always slip through. I have found a (very) few so far, mostly misspellings that got past editors and spell-checkers both. These will be corrected, as well as a quote on page two that will now be properly attributed to John Kascht.
To this end, I thought I’d appeal to the thousands of people who have gotten a copy of the book…here’s your chance to play grammar cop. If anyone has noticed any typos or misspellings, please email me privately and let me know. Please don’t use the comments here. Send me a personal email.
Oh . . . and thanks to everyone who has ordered a copy and helped me to sell out the first run. That is awesome…I am so glad so many people are getting something from the book!
