T

hese loose translations of reality are irresistable because they have the freedom to tell all. Caricatures can depict as many aspects of a person as are required with a single portrait. In addition to physical attributes, many other likenesses can be included. For example, personality traits, character flaws, occupations, hobbies, affiliations, reputations, or any combination thereof are fair game in a caricature. Generally speaking, these visual statements are done with good humor in order to serve a positive purpose. Occasionally though, the intention is to express criticism of someone's supposed misbehavior. Such look-a-likes are often the main characters of published political cartoons.
While a pastel caricature is the most well-known type, those done on computers have also become popular. With some painterly know-how, Photoshop and other digital programs have made it possible to add caricature-like charm to any photo portrait.

sample

Lighten up an inflammatory message with visual humor.

The humorous aspects of a caricature can be extremely soothing in a negative situation. If a magazine article truly has positive, well intended motives, its goal will be to provide helpful information rather further aggravate bad feelings.

smouse.jpgThis sample is one in a series of four illustrations needed to help characterize the destructive personality types to be found in today's office environment. This one is called "The Sniper". His or her typical traits are so sneaky and two-faced that it is hard to remember such individuals without becoming enraged. Symbolic use of a generic photo depicting an unpleasant looking person whose appearance fits the bill is just too real. For such subject matter, it could easily inflame the message to such heights that productive reading would be difficult. Instead, the lighter visual presentation serves to promote understanding and a willingness to help improve this kind of unfortunate scenario.
