35 Unique and Inspiring Caricature Artworks

Inspiration August 16, 2010

Caricaturing is the art of illustrating the human face and figure in a way that exaggerates their prominent features. Most caricatures are satirical in nature, making fun of the people being characterized. They are often used in newspaper editorial cartoons and other similar media, although they are made just as often simply for their entertainment value.

The following caricature design examples characterize a variety of personalities, from past icons to present superstars, from famous fictional characters to everyday real ones. If you’ve been looking for caricature inspiration for a while, we hope this post gives you that spark – and maybe even a smirk or two to boot!

    These are fascinating. The caricatures are all so different, I haven’t really ever come across many, so its great to see a different type of artwork being displayed.

    These have a great illustrative style but the essence of a caricature is to exaggerate their features to some comic effect and too many of these just look like they are images of the person in a hall of mirrors rather than picking a feature.

    They do, for the most part, show great style but miss the mark of true caricature.
