|Douglas Adams Author|
Here is my caricature of Douglas Adams - author of "Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy". It is one of the few fiction books I have ever read. Very clever in his observations of and life.
Can you spot a reference to this book in the picture?
Since drawing this caricature I have created an animated version which has been uploaded to YouTube - click here

Kim Campbell (who celebrates her birthday today) was the first female Prime Minister in Canada.
Think I have exercised "Artist Licence" quite a bit in this Symbolic Caricature !

|Piet Mondrian symbolic caricature|
Piet Mondrian was born on this day back in 1872. For my picture of him, I decided to do a symbolic caricature. Using the older looking Mondrian was quite a challenge as all the shapes are curved... unlike his artwork. After trying several versions I decided this one works best.
You may have seen on my website selection of created caricatures of Artist redendered in their own style http://www.ianart.co.uk/IanArt-Artists.htm. Guess this is another one I could add to them.

|Bobby Womack, singer / songwriter Symbolic Caricature|
For todays birthday personality I have drawn a symbolic caricature of the talented Bobby Womack. Reading his bio, it is incredible how many other singers he wrote for (some of these artists names I used to create his sideburns).

|Jodie Whittaker Dr Who Symbolic Caricature|
Been getting back into creating my Symbolic Caricatures lately. I love the challenge of trying to capture a personality with a limited amount of detail.
Couldn't believe it was back in 2010 when I created my first symbolic caricatures - think it was the one of Andrew Lloyd Webber (which you can see on my www.IanArt.co.uk).
