A Long Island cartoonist shares his collection of caricature portraits of famous and unknown persons. The author shares his reflections and experiences working as a caricaturist in New York, Virginia and northern Florida at the locally famous Jacksonville Farmer's Market and Art Walk. The artwork readily speaks itself; the author nonetheless weaves in his descriptive words and explanations throughout.
The short book is an unforgettable, reading experience both visually and literally. The Deserting Caricature Artist is not just a page-turning collection of lined ink art; Jackson talks about some of the individual pictures and the stories behind creating them, the people he met drawing their live cartoon portraits.
Mr. Jackson also opens up in memoir narrative about his life as a struggling artist, a cartoonist and background actor. The drawings include John Steinbeck, Amy Davis, Slim Summerville, Oprah Winfrey, George Garvin, Cristina Branco, Mary Jo Hicks, Barbara K., Luke Perry, Hillary Clinton, Jim Dyer, Ashanti, Muhammad Ali, Humphrey Bogart, Marian Anderson and others.
