The cover should reflect the idea that you are going to discuss in your podcast. So one can make it simple, funny, or artistic but the thing to notice is that it should be in a way that attracts more listeners.
Using text in podcast cover is high in practice. One can mention the topic or title. The text should be simple, readable, and short. And also using the right font style is important as it’s going to depict your feelings. Using vibrant colors in podcast cover art will make your podcast pop up and surely stands out from all others.

Caricature artists are now often seen at weddings, street fairs, or any visiting spot where they make caricature designs of visitors and guests specifically and quickly. Nowadays Caricature artists have become the attention spots of the tourists at tourism places.
For making a caricature design the character is firstly observed by the artist very keenly. Then a story is drawn out of it after observing the behaviour, experiences and attitudes of their character. After making observations these elements are exaggerated through strokes to make a story out of it.
Taking mental notes of the character before the drawing is important to understand the behavior of the character. A keen observation develops a personal opinion of the character in the mind of the artist. This also brings fun to the story. Also, good art never fails to make a relationship between the viewer and the described story.
