I was given this book as a gift and have enjoyed it so much that I had to buy a copy to give as a Christmas gift! I like that the caricatures aren’t labeled because it gives you a chance to guess who the celebrity is, then you can check your answer in the back. We always share the book with friends when they come to visit, it’s fun to hear different all the different guesses. Nate is really talented, his artwork is amazing and fun to look at over and over!

Caricatures to the Extreme!
on August 21, 2013
By Jared Lipscomb
Merriam Webster’s defines caricature as an exaggeration by means of often ludicrous distortion of parts or characteristics. Most of the world defines caricature as funny faces or those drawings with the big heads. Either way, the word caricature is synonymous with exaggeration. There are a lot of artist who use exaggeration in their work but only a select few have mastered the art of extreme exaggeration. In my opinion Nate Kapnicky’s book “Beasted” is the very embodiment of extreme exaggeration. In fact the term “Beasted”, coined by Nate Kapnicky himself has became the slang used world wide within the caricature community to define extremly exaggerated art.
Incredible and So Unique!!

Nate Kapnicky has probably the wildest and most original imagination and sense of humor I’ve ever seen. The caricatures in this book start off just really wild, then slowly get more and more insane and incredibly abstracted. And yet all are recognizable. Somehow. This book will really grow on you. It’s the ideal party book, or breakfast companion. These are more than just caricatures, they’re true works of art, fated to become classics. This book is equally perfect for the discriminating art connoisseur or the average celebrity fan. BUY IT!! You won’t regret it.
I LOVE this book. I keep it out on my coffee table for when guests come over and they become completely addicted to going through all of the pages and guessing who the various celebrities are. The crazy thing is that everyone almost always guesses them, even though the pictures are so abstract. I really like that the drawings don’t have the celebrities names written next to them, but rather in the back so that you can try and figure them out on their own. The artist is incredible- definitely the best caricature artists that I have ever come across. He can find the “beast” in everyone- even in Angelina and Brad Pitt- that one is a really fun one. I’ve looked at my book over and over again, with guests and on my own, and am blown away every time! I highly recommend this!
This Book Will Blow Your Mind!!!

Nate Kap has created a super unique book here that is jam-packed with awesome art. He is easily one of the top caricature artists in the world (I personally think he is unmatched), and this book more than proves it. You’ll see many different styles, mediums and levels of exaggeration that will warp your brain in ways you didn’t think possible!
a MUST buy!

If you draw caricatures for a job or for fun or like looking at silly awesome unique caricatures of celebrities or just like amazing art work then you need to buy this book. There’s really nothing quite like it on the market. Nate is in my opinion (and to many well known caricature artists) one of THE best caricature artists out there and is doing things with the art form that no one else is doing. His art is imaginative, creative, funny, and many other cool adjective words. I’ve been drawing live caricatures for 7 years and have sought out as many caricature artists’ work for inspiration and to learn from and Nate is consistently one of my very top people I go to to fulfill those needs. Nate put his heart and soul into every piece and it clearly shows. So yeah, enough babble and just buy the darn book already!

I was lucky enough to stumble upon this book at a local art event. Everything about this book is so unique & entertaining I had to have it! This is a great coffee table book. Guests always enjoy guessing the celebrities featured. You can check the back of the book to see if you have guessed correctly.
The most extreme caricature book out there

I hardly ever get books, but “Beasted” is one of the most inspiring books I’ve ever opened. Nate’s unique approach to the art of caricature is one that stands out. He has awesome theories on color, shape, form, weight, sound, etc. and it shows. Nate takes people’s perception on the art of caricature and completely takes it to another level. These aren’t “sketches”, or doodles, they’re “illustrations”. Someone gave me this book as a gift, but I would easily have paid more than full price for it, definitely worth it!
