The Mad Art of Caricature!: A Serious Guide to Drawing Funny Faces written and fully illustrated by MAD Magazine artist Tom Richmond 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. In it, Reuben Award winner for "Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year", caricaturist and illustrator Tom Richmond shares his secrets to creating great caricatures- drawing on his 30 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.

The Mad Art of Caricature goes beyond just how to draw caricatures, and includes the theories and thinking behind how to create them. It examines what really makes a caricature illustration successful, what to look for in a face, and how to draw it. The reader 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 unique collection of artistic yet comic insight contains something for novices and experts alike.
