AJ Jensen is known for his whacky, extreme, cartoony caricatures.
"I started caricature back in 2013 but have always been super interested in caricature. I can remember when I was in school, and the teacher asked what everyone wanted to be. I would always answer, " A Cartoonist." I just loved the ring to it and defiantly loved the art form. I was first introduced to caricature as a child in a theme park and was too afraid to ride the roller coasters. I found a caricature booth and spent hours watching the artist create these awesome caricatures. While my family and friends were making themselves sick with rides, I was falling in love with this new thing I had never seen before, caricature. I promised myself that day that I would learn caricature. Skip a few years later, and I finally took upon learning the art of caricature. I defiantly pushed myself with the art form. I learned a lot of it all on my own and spent countless hours drawing funny faces over and over. I finally pushed myself to create live caricatures on the spot, timid and nervous but excited all the same. Caricature took me on an even further adventure. I ended up meeting some of my favorite artists in the world and becoming good friends with them, Bobby Morris included. I've never been so thankful to have him as a drawing partner and a good friend. Caricature is just full of adventure, and I still can't wait to see where it brings me."
