Hi, all.

I´m Frederico, 37, from Lisboa.
Many caricaturists are political, so you could suppose I was here looking for ideas. I've drawn some great politicians of the past, and that´s really what I do, I draw historic figures.
Perhaps is just a convention, but politics use to be the structural line in history, so as I understand many of you like history, you could like my drawings.

Thanks for having me!

Hi, Girl, thanks.:)
The welcome is going great, I´m just afraid the fancy fat cat and the big-eyed sock may turn angry at each other.

Thank you, Infinite Chaos. :)

My drawings are a pure formal work, with a try to make the expression clear, but not exaggerate it. So, the attributes are mainly physical, but with a special attention for the enormous importance of the role that the human expression plays when it comes to resemblence.
I don't try to satirize or contextualize them as a social or personal criticism or joke. This are common ideas people associate with the concept of caricature and they can be very enriching, but can also be distactive from the pure formal interpretation that I believe is the essence of the caricature.
My mental process is a try to reach the memory we have of someone, to try to reach some kind of intangible logic in our process of synthesizing human faces and distinguish and organize their elements in the practical sense of recognizing them.
