Of Caricatures and Drawings

Based on the non-always reliable Wikipedians a "caricature is a portrait that exaggerates or distorts the essence of a person or thing to create an easily identifiable visual likeness. Caricatures can be insulting or complimentary and can serve a political purpose or be drawn solely for entertainment. Caricatures of politicians are commonly used in editorial cartoons, while caricatures of movie stars are often found in entertainment magazines." If you like or dislike these two drawings of Lara Flynn Boyle (only the first one is a pure caricature) depends on your taste. Feel free to decide yourself.

The second one is a keeper. The first: forget about it!
