The Second Fastest Caricaturist in the World – and that’s Official!

Yes, folks, it’s the shy and retiring Steve Hearn:

Caricaturist, caricaturist and former purveyor of pharmaceuticals to the gentry, Mr Hearn was kind enough to feature me in his blog recently. Although it depends on your definition of ‘kind’.

Steve is a relative newcomer to the caricaturing scene, having only spotted the bandwagon loaded with easy money about ten years ago. He duly boarded the aforementioned vehicle and is now so much at the forefront of his profession that it could be said that he is DRIVING the wagon.

The photo above doesn’t do him justice. He looks more like this:

Steve looks much older than he is which can be put down to his inhalation of various fumes at Procter and Gamble. In fact, his exposure to so many noxious chemicals explains a lot. He is an active member of the National Caricaturist Network which is an American organisation despite the fact that he lives in Essex. An avid networker, Steve makes a habit of joining organisations and then getting thrown out. Obviously his incredible gifts of intelligence, charm and good looks are seen as too much of a threat to most people.

An explanation of the headline: Steve entered a ‘World’s Fastest Caricaturist’ contest once and came SECOND. And there were as many as twenty entrants out of the whole world. What next, Steve? World domination can’t be far off!

Seriously though, he likes a laugh does Steve and none better than when the laughter is aimed at him!

He’s got a blog, but it’s not much good.
