Biography of Jody Brownd
    Mastering the Art of Caricature for over 25 years!!! Jody keeps very busy drawing the masses.  
    Jody and Deby have 4 awesome children who also are very talented in art.  Jody got his start in
    caricatures with a summer job at Astro World to help work his way through art school.  Jody
    graduated from the Art Institute of Houston in 1985 with a Degree in Commercial Art. In 1987 he
    joined the Army Reserves and served as an Illustrator (81E) believe it or not!  Jody was able to use
    his talents by drawing funny pictures of the Lieutenant!  Since then, he has worked at the Citizen
    Newspaper in the late 80's and at the Green Sheet as an illustrator in the early 90's, all the while
    drawing caricatures part-time. But then, Jody's dream of drawing caricatures as a career
    materialized in 1993.  With the help of veteran caricaturists Dan Dunn, Martin Tremblay, and Nick
    Polydoros,  Jody became established as one of Houston's top event caricaturist.

    HISTORY OF CARICATURE!
    Caricature can be traced all the way back to Cave Drawings in the drawing of animals. The exaggerated feature of animals in
    there simplistic and identifiable forms. When ever you had art through out history, you will find
    Caricature.Here is an example of Ancient Pompeiian graffiti caricature of a politician. This particular caricature
    reminds me of what we use to draw at astroworld when I first started drawing caricatures. The basic profile
    caricature. I did these for 7 years before I learned how to draw the front view and 3 quarter view.

    One of my favorite early artists is Leonardo Da Vinci. In his studies of facial structure, he would, on occasion,
    caricature his subjects. I believe that Leonardo understood that the study of exaggeration would give
    him a well rounded education in portraiture. Diodemmar Casem one of the great early practitioners,
    was favored by the members of the papal court for his ability to depict the essence of a person in 'three or four
    strokes.'[citation needed] In fact, the word "caricature" comes from the Italian caricare, "to load", thus the caricaturist's aim is
    to invest his image with as much meaning as possible.

    Caricature, therefore, experienced its first successes in the closed aristocratic circles of France and Italy, where the such
    portraits could be passed about for mutual enjoyment.


    James Gillray's The Plumb-pudding in danger (1805), which caricatured Pitt and Napoleon, was voted the most famous of all UK
    political cartoons.[2]While the first book on caricature drawing to be published in England was Mary Darly's A Book of
    Caricaturas (c. 1762), the first known North American caricatures were drawn in 1759 during the battle for Quebec.[3] These
    caricatures were the work of Brig.-Gen. George Townshend whose caricatures of British General James Wolfe, depicted as
    "Deformed and crass and hideous" (Snell),[4] were drawn to amuse fellow officers.[3] Elsewhere, two great practitioners of the
    art of caricature in 18th-century Britain were Thomas Rowlandson (1756–1827) and James Gillray (1757–1815). Rowlandson was
    more of an artist and his work took its inspiration mostly from the public at large. Gillray was more concerned with the vicious
    visual satirisation of political life. They were, however, great friends and caroused together in the pubs of London. See the Tate
    Gallery's exhibit James Gillray: The Art of Caricature

    In a lecture titled The History and Art of Caricature (September 2007, Queen Mary 2 Lecture theatre), the British caricaturist Ted
    Harrison said that the caricaturist can choose to either mock or wound the subject with an effective caricature. Drawing
    caricatures can simply be a form of entertainment and amusement – in which case gentle mockery is in order – or the art can be
    employed to make a serious social or political point. A caricaturist draws on (1) the natural characteristics of the subject (the big
    ears, long nose, etc.); (2) the acquired characteristics (stoop, scars, facial lines etc.); and (3) the vanities (choice of hair style,
    spectacles, clothes, expressions and mannerisms).

    List of Caricaturist throughout the ages

    Une discussion littéraire à la deuxième Galerie by Honoré Daumier
    Lithograph published in Le Charivari newspaper, February 27, 1864
    A Group of Vultures Waiting for the Storm to "Blow Over"--"Let Us Prey." by Thomas Nast
    Wood engraving published in Harper's Weekly newspaper, September 23, 1871George Cruikshank (1792–1878, British) created
    political prints that attacked the royal family and leading politicians (in 1820 he received a royal bribe of £100 for a pledge "not
    to caricature His Majesty (George III of the United Kingdom) in any immoral situation."[citation needed] He went on to create
    social caricatures of British life for popular publications such as The Comic Almanack (1835–1853) and Omnibus (1842). He also
    earned fame as a book illustrator for Charles Dickens and many other authors.

    Honoré Daumier (1808–1879, French) is considered by some[who?] to be the father of caricature.[citation needed] During his
    life, he created over 4,000 lithographs, most of them caricatures on political, social and everyday themes. They were published
    in the daily French newspapers (Le Charivari, La Caricature etc.)

    Thomas Nast (1840–1902, American) was a famous caricaturist and editorial cartoonist in the 19th century and is considered by
    some[who?] to be the father of American political cartooning.[citation needed] He is often credited with creating the definitive
    caricatures of the Democratic Donkey, the Republican Elephant and Santa Claus.[citation needed]

    Sir Max Beerbohm (1872–1956, British), created and published caricatures of the famous men of his own time and earlier. His
    style of single-figure caricatures in formalized groupings was established by 1896 and flourished until about 1930. His published
    works include Caricatures of Twenty-five Gentlemen (1896), The Poets' Corner (1904) and Rossetti and His Circle (1922). He
    published widely in fashionable magazines of the time, and his works were exhibited regularly in London at the Carfax Gallery
    (1901–18) and Leicester Galleries (1911–57).

    Alex Gard (1900–1948, Russian) created more than 700 caricatures of show business celebrities and other notables for the walls
    of Sardi's Restaurant in the theater district of New York City: the first artist to do so. Today the images are part of the Billy Rose
    Theatre Collection of The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts.[5]

    Al Hirschfeld (1903–2003, American) was best known for his simple black and white renditions of celebrities and Broadway stars
    which used flowing contour lines over heavy rendering. He was also known for depicting a variety of other famous people, from
    politicians, musicians, singers and even television stars like the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation. He was even
    commissioned by the United States Postal Service to provide art for U.S. stamps. Permanent collections of Hirschfeld's work
    appear at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and he boasts a star on the St. Louis
    Walk of Fame.

    Mort Drucker (1929, American) joined Mad in 1957 and became well known for his parodies of movie satires. He combined a
    comic strip style with caricature likenesses of film actors for Md, and he also contributed covers to Time. He has been
    recognized for his work with the National Cartoonists Society Special Features Award for 1985, 1986, 1987 and 1988, and their
    Reuben Award for 1987.

    Vitaliy Peskov (1944–2002, Russian Виталий Песков) was a famous Russian caricaturist.

    Robert Risko (1946, American) is known for his retro airbrush style. His work has appeared in Rolling Stone, Playboy, Vanity Fair,
    Esquire, and Interview.

    David Levine (1926–2009, American) is noted for his caricatures in The New York Review of Books and Playboy magazine. His
    first cartoons appeared in 1963. Since then he has drawn hundreds of pen-and-ink caricatures of famous writers and politicians
    for the newspaper.

    Sam Viviano (1953, American) has done much work for corporations and in advertising, having contributed to Rolling Stone,
    Family Weekly, Reader's Digest, Consumer Reports, and Mad, of which he is currently the art director. Viviano’s caricatures are
    known for their wide jaws, which Viviano has explained is a result of his incorporation of side views as well as front views into
    his distortions of the human face. He has also developed a reputation for his ability to do crowd scenes. Explaining his twice-
    yearly covers for Institutional Investor magazine, Viviano has said that his upper limit is sixty caricatures in nine days.

    Sebastian Krüger (1963, German) is known for his grotesque, yet hyper-realistic distortions of the facial features of celebrities,
    which he renders primarily in acrylic paint, and for which he has won praise from The Times. He is well known for his lifelike
    depictions of The Rolling Stones, in particular, Keith Richards. Krüger has published three collections of his works, and has a
    yearly art calendar from Morpheus International. Krüger's art can be seen frequently in Playboy magazine and has also been
    featured in the likes of Stern, L’Espresso, Penthouse, and Der Spiegel and USA Today. He has recently been working on select
    motion picture projects.

    Hermann Mejia (Venezuelan) is known for his frequent work for MAD Magazine. Mejia uses multiple techniques for his work,
    sometimes rendering his illustrations in black and white ink and copious amounts of cross-hatching, sometimes using
    watercolor, and sometimes combinations of both.
