Sunday Mailbag

August 30th, 2009 | Posted in Mailbag

I really get a lot out of your “How to Draw Caricatures” tutorials. They are the best instruction I’ve found anywhere. It’s been so long since your last one. When will we see a new one?

A: I am sorry about the length of time in between those tutorials. The blog is something I do just for fun and it has to take a backseat to paying jobs and projects.

When will the long promised tutorial on “Noses” be posted? How about… tomorrow! It’s all done except for a few doodles so I will do those and post that tutorial Monday.

Thanks to Grant Jonen for the question. If you have a question you want answered for the mailbag about cartooning, illustration, MAD Magazine, caricature or similar, e-mail me and I’ll try and answer it here!

    S’ okay Tom, we’ll pay you too….where do I post the gold coins to ? 😉

  3. Your tutorials are great! I used to read Mad Magazines just to look at your drawings…and I wished I knew your train of thought when you drew this. And then you posted your tutorials and I have improved so much since. Thank you!!!

    Heads up, I will definitely purchase the Tom Richmond’s Guide to Caricatures book. I’ll be satisfied with color or black & white . . . whatever length.

    I second Willva…I would definitely buy a ‘how-to’ book from you.
