Caricatures range from quick sketches to more complicated illustrations. A successful caricature is an exaggeration of the subject's features, not a distortion of them, according to About Faces Entertainment. Even great artists such as Claude Monet and Leonardo da Vinci created caricatures. Most modern caricatures, which satirize both celebrities and politicians, are usually featured in magazines and news publications.

Caricature artists are also found in tourist attractions, malls and events.
