Assignment:   Using paper or a program on your computer, create a caricature of a famous person in the real world.   Then, in 250 words or more, explain what a caricature is and how your picture demonstrates it.  Post it all on your blog.  If you hand draw the picture, then use PhotoBooth to take a picture of it so you can post it on your blog.
