Tape 3 - Exaggeration and the Creative Process
How do you exaggerate the face and still get a likeness? What tricks are there to help you out? How far can you push an exaggeration? What are some good examples from professional caricaturists today? The answers are in this video! Jim invites you into his studio and shows you "a behind the scenes" look at the creative process of producing caricatures fit for illustration or framing. Recognizable celebrities are used as examples so you can judge for yourself how well a likeness was achieved. While Jim sketches, you see all the rough drawings, trials and errors, and near misses until he finally comes to the finished product that he's pleased with. You learn to exaggerate beyond the quick sketch technique of the party caricature as describes in Tapes I and 2. Three examples are completed in three different mediums, colored pencil, airbrush, and mixed media. A bonus section includes a series of five minute "first impression" sketches of celebrities picked from various photos to inspire you to let loose and have fun with the art of caricature. An extremely detailed analysis of exaggeration is presented as an aid to understanding caricaturing in its strictest sense, filled with examples from modern day masters, Phillip Burke, David Cowles, Robert Risko, and Steve Brodner. There's even a humorous spot of animation to help illustrate some of the finer points of stretching a likeness. This is a highly entertaining and informative 70 minute video worthy of your tape library.

101 Gag Ideas from The One Mnute Caricaturist
When I first started drawing caricatures at parties, I was so nervous, my drawing hand shook like a misfiring engine. Would they like it? Was it funny? I had soon realized that my insecurity came from a lack of gag ideas -- some standard, sure fire jokes for most sports or hobbies that would work in a pinch. If I just had a book of time tested gags that worked back then I would have avoided all that wasted energy and done much better! But now you can! With this book you can avoid the panic and start making your customers howl with laughter at themselves. I have gathered some of the most popular gags to popular sports, hobbies, and professions that you will encounter. This is an important reference source. Order this book!
