Well, i wasn’t sure it was possible to reduce a person’s essence, the totality of what makes them them in a few brush strokes.
Bit it kinda seems like cartoonist Doug Shannon does a pretty good job.
This guy was at a party I went to saturday (a Bar Mitzvah, actually, which was a unique experience for this california gentile), and of course I had to shoulder kids out of the way and say do mine next. The best thing is to watch the guy doing this, seeing which people he reads and captures instantly and who he does not. It requires not just a particular cartooning talent to do this nonsense, but also a certain intuition about people. We all have varying degrees of how well we read faces and body language; some people just seem to have an extra gift.
