About this title


Award-winning artist, illustrator, character designer and recovering theme park caricaturist Joe Bluhm displays his rejected sketches with hilarious results in his first art book. These frighteningly exaggerated portraits could serve as a lesson for how to (and how not to!) become a successful caricaturist. Bulbous eyes, jutting underbites and elongated necks make these drawings straddle the line between grotesque and hysterical.

This book features a sturdy, glossy 8.5x11" hardcover binding, convenient for both travel and home display, and makes a unique gift. Great for aspiring or seasoned artists, caricaturists, art lovers, or anyone who appreciates good satire and a good laugh. For more info, visit

From the Inside Flap:

It's all too often that a good caricature goes unappreciated. Exaggeration and likeness are a dangerous combination that can repel the average theme park visitor and even ruin a day. The most interesting and dynamic live caricatures often never see a frame, let alone the trip home Guests will refuse to purchase these sketches through any number of creative ways. Overwhelmed by the extreme exaggeration and cutting humor, they often fail to recognize the undeniable likeness.When these rejects are compiled with other extreme caricatures drawn at one of the most visited theme parks in the world, you get a unique and rare peek through the eyes of a raw, award-winning caricaturists. These drawings can now be seen for the first time ever, here in the pages of Rejects.
