So he drew Lindenberg. The first caricature of a VIP. And until today, more than 611 people from politics, sport, and culture have followed. But not on paper or canvas. All caricatures were created on Lafeld’s iPad-Pro with the Apple Pencil. Digitally in his favorite painting app Procreate. Since the beginning of 2018, 429 caricatures have been created. – “Have fun…”
