Big-head cartoons, also known as caricatures, are portraits where the subject is drawn with an enlarged head and exaggerated features. These qualities are intended to satirize the subject and capture his unique qualities.
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.
