9780983576709: The Mad Art of Caricature!: A Serious Guide to Drawing Funny Faces

In The Mad Art of Caricature, award-winning caricaturist and illustrator Tom Richmond shares his secrets to creating great caricatures, drawing on his 25 years of experience teaching live caricature techniques and producing award-winning humorous illustrations and caricatures for publications, books, advertising, video games, film, television animation, and clients like MAD Magazine. He takes the reader on an artistic journey, examining what really makes a caricature successful, what to look for in a face, and how to draw it. You will also learn how to apply this skill, whether it's drawing live, theme-park-style caricatures, or creating caricature for publication work. Loaded with everything from basic theories and drawing instruction to professional tips and tricks, this book contains something for novices and experts alike.

The Mad Art of Caricature! is perhaps the most comprehensive and complete how-to guide on the art of caricature ever published. With over 500 illustrations, it's the definitive guide to the art of caricature.

This master class of a book unlocks the secrets of the caricaturist's unholy craft, rendering them so simple to grasp that any idiot can soon be drawing just like Tom Richmond, assuming, of course, that the idiot is as fabulously talented as Tom Richmond. Good luck with that.
GARRY TRUDEAU, creator of Doonesbury

Learning to draw is a challenge. Having lessons before you from a Master will smooth the road and define the way. Tom Richmond is a blowtorch of caricature genius with the drawing touch of a Holbein. You've come to the right place.
C.F. PAYNE, caricature illustrator, painter and MAD Magazine cover artist

Tom Richmond is a very fine artist and his caricatures are wonderful. Anyone who enjoys the art of caricature will want to read this book and see his excellent artwork. They would be interested in how he thinks, what he looks for in the face, how he sees the people he draws, and what makes them unique.
MORT DRUCKER, MAD Magazine caricaturist, cartoonist and illustrator

This is easily one of the most comprehensive, enlightening and provocative books on the art of caricature that s ever been written from what the author tells me. I hope to read it someday.
WEIRD AL YANKOVIC, famously weird musician and songwriter

As a cartoonist, I can write humor and draw funny but when it comes to good caricatures, that is hard! I wish I could have had Tom's book earlier in my career.
SERGIO ARAGONES, MAD Magazine cartoonist and creator of Groo The Wanderer

After studying Tom's great book, I am now going to try charging $800 per smiley face.... More if I color it in.
JEFF DUNHAM, superstar comedian and ventriloquist

The Mad Art of Caricature! has quickly become the gold standard in the examination and instruction of the art form.

From the Inside Flap:

The School Library Journal, March 2012 issue: Gr 6-Up Master MAD Magazine caricaturist Richmond has something to teach even the least-talented stick-figure artist in this comprehensive discussion of the art form. He meticulously examines the processes and decisions that go into a successful caricature--creating a portrait that not only resembles the subject in an exaggerated fashion, but that also captures elements of his or her personality. Emphasis is placed on careful observation and analysis of faces, breaking them down into shapes and proportions that can be pushed and pulled to create humorous effects without edging into distortion. Richmond then shows how these skills apply to drawing live caricatures, those for illustration, and long-form comic-strip caricatures such as the parodies that appear in MAD Magazine. Although the text is a bit wordy, with some topics becoming labored through frequent repetition, all pertinent information points are thoroughly illustrated with instructive captions. Multitudes of finished caricatures are augmented by diagrams, reference photos, and process drawings. Most of these are titled with silly puns, lending a lighthearted MAD touch to this seriously instructive volume. Readers with a talent for drawing and an eye for absurdity will be inspired to grab a pencil and try a few funny pictures of their own. --- Paula Willey, Baltimore County Public Library, Towson, MD
