Biography of Jody the houston caricature artist.

Mastering the Art of Caricature for over 30 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 Sarge... until he found out!  Since then, he has worked

at the CitizenNewspaper 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.

Caricatures by Jody thanks the artists and agents who have worked with Jody down through the

years for their help and encouragement.

 

Jody is also the creator of BAMsystem.org, MensBibleStudy.info, and CaricturesInHouston.com, And Caricaturesbyjody.com

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.
