I really enjoyed drawing this customer.
I had an idea what I wanted to do, and I liked it  -
but afterward, I thought of other directions
I might want to take the drawing.

After a couple rough sketches,
I redrew the caricature.
It just goes to show that there are an infinite number of directions you can take a caricature.
Instead of exaggerating the glasses up, I pushed them down.
Instead of making the eyes tiny and close together, I moved them apart and made them conform to the overall head structure more.
Instead of making the hair squished up, I took it off the page in just about all directions.
Not only is it a better likeness, I think it's a better drawing all around.
