Whimsical Caricatures or Caricaturas

What is it that we love about a distorted view of our face or body either of ourselves or of others? “How do you like my new big nose or those itty-bitty puckered lips?” Let the comics begin!

Here on the Wasatch front, say – Salt Lake City, Sandy, Draper, Lehi, Orem or Provo, or even Park City of Saratoga Springs, the caricature artists of Face Painting Illusions and Balloon Art are just fabulous! There is such an art to being this kind of artist. They look for the humor, the unusual, and their observing eye of the obvious in each of their subjects make them come alive in another dimension.

The “drawing basics” of becoming a caricature artist, are the five main skills of drawing. They’re the ability to: recognize edges, lines, and angles; to reckon proportion and perspective; deciphering shadow, highlights, and gradations of tone; and lastly, the ability to unconsciously drawstring them all together – which comes to you with practice.

It’s fun to go to a party or event and have your caricature artist draw you from their distorted perspective. So give it a try and call us at (801)554-2364 or email us at facepaintingillusions@hotmail.com
