Caricaturist Spotlight: Miller Almeida’s Mr. Bean

Miller Almeida's caricature of Rowan Atkinson in his role as Mr. Bean

Miller Almeida is a caricature artist and illustrator with a painterly and high polished style based out of Porto Alegre, Brazil. He specializes in a high-end style that could be commissioned to grace the glossy cover of a magazine. The composition of Miller’s work is fairly simple. A famous head front and center, with a kind of fish-eye-lens type view for the base of the exaggeration of likeness. That seems to only be the starting point. From there Miller simplifies and stretch the likeness almost to the point of distortion. Finally, Miller adds fairly realistic paint rendering to finish. The featured piece of Rowan Atkinson as Mr. Bean exemplifies this, down to the little bumps on his face to the stitching on his Teddy.
