I was overjoyed when my old university DMU asked me to lecture their animation students about caricatures, though a little scared! I was sure the students would know more about my subject than I did, so I spent a few days researching the basics; history, meanings, usage and contemporaries in the caricature world. I managed to put together a 78 slide lecture, covering how to see a caricature, how to create a caricature and the history of caricature, interlaced with demonstrations and volunteers to be drawn.
After much preparation, the day came and I made my way to the stunning Hugh Aston building, with my laptop and my drawing board, to be greeted by a handful of weary students. Numbers were a little disappointing, but I managed to keep them entertained for a good 90 minutes, followed by more drawing and Q&A.
