 Caricature  

• The most prominent features of a character/object are dramatically emphasized

By enlarging a large chin or jowl, by shrinking an already small nose, by grossly bugging out buggy eyes, or with the use of countless other possible distortions the artist emphasizes unique characteristics, often in cartoonish fashion. By focusing on peculiarities, caricature usually pokes fun at its subject.
