David García Vivancos, DGV, is an illustrator specialized in caricature from Madrid, Spain. He divides his working time between collaborations for Spanish newspapers and magazines (La Razón, ABC, tintaLibre, El Jueves…), live caricature for big companies (Vodafone, Toyota, Benetton or UEFA, in example) and education (workshops, talks and courses about the world of caricature). He has four published books: "En capítulos anteriores..." (Diábolo Ediciones, about TV series), "El Fútbol es asín" (self-edited, about soccer icons), "Las criaturas de John Carpenter" (Amaníaco Ediciones, about Carpenter's characters) and "Hartas" (Instituto Quevedo de las Artes del Humor, about women artists overlooked by Art History). His work is the combination of a designy / abstract / geometric approach with digital textures to create direct drawings in which likeness is always the most important part. He uses only a few lines, a very limited colour palette and some textures to capture his "victims", following a very simple way of working and beginning with a sketch (traditional or digital), that comes to an end in Photoshop, giving a vector-like appearance which sharply contrasts with the sketch. There is only one rule he tries not to forget: there is no caricature without likeness.
