French artist Anthony Geoffrey
makes fantastic celebrity caricatures. The site uses flash and is in French but it loads fast and the navigation is simple. The caricatures are in the Portfolio. I particularly enjoyed his Ash from Evil Dead
and his House MD. These are not
the same as the ones you find in the mall by some poor guy trying to scratch out a living.
A caricature is defined as "a representation, especially pictorial or literary, in which the subject's distinctive features or peculiarities are deliberately exaggerated to produce a comic or grotesque effect."
In researching, I learned there exists an International Society of Caricature Artists
, as well as a social network
for caricaturists. More on caricature history here
