Cari Cature

Almost every Sunday I go for a buffet lunch at a nice hotel in town. It’s very festive, with live music, a magician, and other random activities. This weekend they had an artist doing caricatures. You may notice that they called them Cari Catures.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was talking to the guy while he was drawing me. He said he is a painter, but his friend got him a job on the weekend doing drawings. As he was talking to me, he kept giving me intense stares in very short bursts.

After it was completed, he showed me the final piece. I was a little surprised at how it turned out. I always thought that a caricature was more of an exaggerated, satirical illustration of a person. Instead, he sort of just drew a very serious picture of me with a big nose.
