    31 caricatures of african leaders and influencers done over a period of 31 days.
    Published:
31 days 31 caricatures.

In January 2018, I took up a challenge of drawing a caricature/portrait of an African leader or influencer for 31 days. The challenge was launched online under the hashtag #caricatureresolutionafrica2018. I was among the many african artists participating.

My goal was to use this challenge to develop how I capture a likeness in my portrait drawings and to draw everything without tracing :D. The first five on the list were done by hand on paper, while the rest of the series was done fully digitally.
