One of my favorite art forms are caricatures. I love to do them and I happen to be very skilled drawing and painting them. It’s fun to decide what the most dominant aspect of a person’s face is and how to exaggerate that to make it look even more like them, and also how to capture their personality with a few lines and brush marks. This past month I was given a wonderful project to complete — 48 caricatures of employees at a company in Hamden, CT. I finished them in less than 4 weeks, in time for the opening of their new facility. They were displayed at the entrance corridor. Here are a few of the paintings alongside the people who they caricature. The paintings are all 8″ x 10″ acrylic on canvas, done from photos I took or were given to me. I was pleased to hear that everyone enjoyed viewing caricatures of themselves.
