Humor is not only achieved with words, as images, in this sense, can also have a great forcefulness. Master the art of expressing your perspective on a particular person or situation with an image by studying our selection of cartoon books.

The origins of caricature are said to date back to 16th century Italy, more specifically to the art school founded by the Carracci. The pupils of this institution drew guests or visitors with features similar to those of animals and objects.

We can therefore define caricature as a drawing in which, in general, a person’s face is represented in a distorted form, with exaggerated features, without losing its essence. This means that, despite the exaggeration of certain features, the person can still be recognized in the drawing.

The cartoon has a humorous purpose and people are willing to pay street artists or freelancers to portray them in caricature form. However, there is another type of cartoon that is usually published in newspapers and/or magazines, which has a tinge of sarcasm, as it aims to make a social or political criticism of a public figure, place or situation.

The face is not the only thing that is caricatured, it can also be done with the body and the behaviour of a person. It all depends on the creativity of the artist.
