Caricatures: Art that Tickles

Nigeria College Students

Our mission was to teach entrepreneurship to 1,000 University kids and their teachers. Before and after our sessions I was determined to do caricatures of as many of them as possible. I brought 2 thick sketch pads and from what was left of the pads I am pretty sure I was able to draw over a hundred faces. Because I was rushing I wasn’t able to snap a photo of all my “victims” but I did get a few when some of the kids and our driver volunteered to help.

I think I averaged 2 to 5 minutes each. The hard part was getting their names right. With some I was able to draw their future aspirations. I wanted to do that for everyone so when they hang it on their wall they would be reminded of their goals … but the lines were too long to allow me that luxury.
