Caricature vs. Cartoons
Ever wondered what the difference between a caricature and a cartoon is? We’ve looked into it and found that the most notable difference stems from their origins; cartoons were originally intended for daily newspapers so needed to be quick sketches with less detail, whereas caricatures had more time and effort invested into them as they were used in glossier publications.

We also have many more artistic entertainment acts to hire such as innovative pavement artists, impressive sand sculpture artists and some remarkable calligraphy artists. Have a look at our entire list of performers for hire by checking out our entertainment roster.
