Here’s another sneak peek at the inside of my upcoming book The MAD Art of Caricature!, which is shipping next month. Chapter 2- Basic Caricature Theory explains several of the basic theories behind caricature, exaggeration, likeness…how to see it and how to draw it. This chapter consists of 14 pages and contains over 35 illustrations.
I’ve gotten a number of inquiries asking if the book is just a paper version of my on-line tutorials. The answer is NO. The information in the tutorials is incorporated into the book, but they are expanded upon and many more concepts and techniques are introduced and discussed. People familiar with the tutorials will recognize some of the text and some of the images, but at over 170 pages of content, there is many times more information in the book, with pages and pages of new text and hundreds of new illustrations. Plus it will have that freshly printed new book smell!
You can pre-order The Mad Art of Caricature! today. All copies ordered directly from me are signed, but you can also choose options for either a sketch of Alfred E. Newman or a random piece of original art from the book (like the sketch of Brad Pitt on page 14 above… that option is limited and running out fast).
