Caricatures

Be prepared, when you come face to face with Harlan Rector…he will capture the personality that lurks within, and put it down on paper. An Astrology buff (he’s an Aquarian), Rector casually asks the Zodiac sign of his subject, flashes his pen, and produces an incisive comment on the essence of the human face. The convention bureau of Detroit spotted him as a tourist attraction while he was a caricaturist for a morning TV show and a noontime interview show in Detroit. He’s sketched everyone from the Detroit Redwings Hockey Team to Howard Cosell. Clint Eastwood to Otto Preminger plus hundreds of other stars.
