My favourite caricaturists Part 2 Barry Fantoni
Fri 3rd Aug 2018
Although Barry Fantoni seemed to stop drawing caricatures in his early forties, he still holds a place for me in the top bracket of contemporary British caricaturitsts. For me to stand out from the others you have to be different and he was certainly different. Unerringly accurate with sometimes only a hint of caricature they really influenced me when I was starting out. I would rate him alongside Trog in so much as the detail was always spot on, and I would rate him the best "eye" man (the eyes are the most important thing, get them right and you are 50% there).
