   Become a portrait artist!

   The art of caricature is brought in a new direction with this
   multimedia work. Detailed descriptions, hundreds of photos and
   drawings, and 30 minutes of video are combined to teach the
   construction of detailed human faces out of non-round (pencil)
   balloons.

   Make celebrities, family, and friends out of latex. Making faces at
   (of) friends has never been so much fun!

   Make sure to check out the companion poster to this CD-ROM at:
          http://www.parmapublishing.com/book/BHQPoster.html
   The poster presents many of the finished figures from the CD in a fun
   way to display in your home or office.

  About the CD format

   Platform independence is becoming increasingly easier as technology
   improves. Everyone has a right to pick the platform they prefer to
   work with. With that in mind, this CD-ROM was created to work equally
   well on PC's and Macs with the software you are already familiar with.
   Rather than bundle a special package needed to read the contents of
   the CD, it will run with any standard web browser. This way you can
   run the software you already know how to use. There's no delay as you
   learn a new package. In addition, by not packaging an extra viewer,
   the cost of the CD could be kept down.
