What is a Caricature?

The word caricature comes from the Italian verb "caricare" which means: To put a load on someone, to exaggerate, to increase. These are portraits in which characteristic features of a face are accentuated in order to satirize it. It is possible to make countless caricatures of a person, as it is the artist and the inspiration of the moment who decide whether to deform one feature or another of the portrayed. A good comic drawing is one in which the face of the model is recognized and at the same time shows a humorous version of their face.
