Mad Art of Caricature!

Every once and awhile I get something like this in my inbox that really makes me smile:


I’ve read EVERY book that was ever written on caricatures and at best I never considered myself anything more than an amateur caricaturist. After reading, then studying your book, I am now working the beach in Ft Lauderdale daily.Thanks to you I am now a professional caricaturist.

You made a lifelong dream come true, and for that I thank you.

Sincerely, Tim

Timothy Wittneben

That is perhaps the highest compliment anyone who has written a “how to” book of any kind can get. You are most welcome, Tim! Thanks for buying a copy of the book, and I am glad you got so much from it. Thanks to everyone who has purchased a copy, especially directly from me.

    Definitely the Best book about caricature I have read, too. I pre-ordered it and have it signed by you, which makes it even better! Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us!

  2. Frank Pryor says:

    Your tutorials and book have certainly helped take my work to a higher level as well! Thanks for all you do!!

  3. Susan Berg says:

    My boyfriend bought me a signed copy of your book and it’s absolutely the best one I’ve come across. I love it. Thanks for all the great “how to” information!

    There is no better book out there on how to draw caricatures… Without question, this is the very best. I use it on a weekly basis.

  5. Elizandro says:

    Hi Tom! I do not speak English, but I will admire you and I have tried to translate your tutorials to learn how to make cartoons … I think I know, thanks to you … I am a professional illustrator and if you have time, look at my work in …

    Te admiro mucho Tom y muchas gracias por tu amor a los que quieren ser artistas!
