A caricature is a portrait that exaggerates or distorts the essence of a person, to create an easily identifiable visual likeness. The difference between a caricature and a cartoon is that caricatures are a satirical illustration of a person or a thing, whereas a cartoon is the satirical illustration of an idea. Caricatures are black and white, in pen on paper. They take about five minutes each.
