Character with Harry Devlin
I think some artists (self-identifying here) still shy away from exaggeration, and I still don't know anyone who will exaggerate one character while leaving the rest relatively normal, as Harry Devlin does. Take a look at Old Black Witch. Her face doesn't even look human, but the character still fits into the book's world, and her freaky proportions make her endearing as the book progresses. This is an oldie but a goodie (and it looks like he did them in ballpoint pen, presumably before that was considered a crime against art).
