I'll opine that Peter Cook would have been an excellent caricaturist had he worked in this arena.
When performing and in character, he had undertones that you needed listen for which were hilarious -and subtle.  What he presented us with were minute specifics of personality types informing and simmering beneath the overall thrust of the persona he was being. ---Which is exactly what must be effectuated in caricature.
This was key to his success as a presenter of humanity.

My fellow Americans, our long portraiture nightmare is over.
The caricature works; our Visual Cogitations is a blog of distortions and not of men. Here the people are misshapen. But there is a higher Power, by whatever name we honor Him, who ordains not only deformity but nature, not only perversion but truth.

Dogs don't care how you draw them, so I will gladly show them if they want to see.
Humans, however, are a different animal altogether...

All good things that are elastic and snug.

Identity is a result of distortion; the more perfect the face is the less singularity it has. 
A perfect face never said anything worth repeating to your children.
It is a dead end unto itself.

Sometimes your drawing ends up in the middle of nowhere, and sometimes in the middle of nowhere you end up drawing yourself.
