The Huffington Post has an article/slideshow posted on their website called Street Portraits Gone Wrong: The Funniest Caricature Drawings Ever featuring thirteen different examples they found of caricatures that the artist “got wrong”. I know many of the artists who did these drawings. Here are some samples:
This one is a Joe Bluhm
This is by Dorney Park, PA artist Chris Chua
This one is by Chris Rommel
See all thirteen and vote on the one with the most “WTF?” on the Huntington Post website.
Poor Chris has four different samples in that slideshow.
The funny thing is that several of these are terrific caricatures, proving the author of the piece is clueless… although a few of them are pretty bad. They didn’t look too hard, obviously… there are some truly hideous caricature examples out there where the recognizably of the subjects as human is a stretch.
