About the Author:

Alex Hughes is a professional caricaturist and has an MA in Visual Communication. His work is regularly published in newspapers, including The Daily Telegraph, and various magazines. Several of his caricatures were also featured in Drawing Cartoons That Sell.

From Library Journal:

The art of caricature falls somewhere between the free-for-all of cartooning and the art of portraiture. In one of the most successful entries in the "Learn To Draw" series, Hughes manages to build from the basics of eyes, noses, mouths, and ears to complete personalities on the page. The usual examples of Elvis and Nixon are here, but Hughes shines in his unexpected caricatures of people like Gandhi, whom he portrays as a map of India. Recommended, especially in combination with a good book on portraiture like Lee Hammond's How To Draw Portraits in Colored Pencil from Photographs (North Light, 1997).
