Movie stars often have very distinctive facial features, and with these Vincenzo caricatures amplifying those parts to hyperbolic extremes, stars actually seem much more creepy than they are attractive. But that's also the allure of these illustrations as the disproportional faces almost take viewers on a surrealistic journey.

Some of the more obvious celebrities featured in these these Vincenzo caricatures include Russell Crowe, William Shatner, Steve Buscemi, Conan O'Brien, Dennis Leary, and the late Amy Winehouse.

Implications - Consumers gravitate towards celebrity products because stars act as benchmarks of success in North American society. Consumers consciously and unconsciously want to emulate the fame and monetary wealth these media figures have amassed. Corporations may consider offering products and services which satiate consumer desire to "be" celebrities as a way of generating revenue.
