The Psychology of Caricature.

 Why do we draw the way we do? 

Though caricature, by definition, is an editorial comment and statement by the artist on on a subject, personal biases and preconceived notions about a face or individual person can be a hindrance to a caricature artist (and sometimes can be used as a crutch!). 

Being able to more accurately think through the often-times unconscious process of making a caricature ‘work’ will result in a more successful end result: a truer depiction of the subject.

Ed will attempt to bring to light the deeper aspects of caricature, going beyond just paying attention to facial features in front of you.  By incorporating human elements; a persons gestures, mannerisms, personality, etc., we can help bring more to a likeness and hopefully create a better caricature.
