Toonists Got Talent: Who Drew Susan Boyle Best?

By Michael Cavna

When an insta-celeb has the "most trafficked" face on the planet over the past week, the cartoonist's job is both much easier and immeasurably harder.

By now, everyone and their never-kissed second cousin knows what the video-viral singer Susan Boyle of "Britain's Got Talent" looks like. That and the fact that Boyle has distinct features makes the caricaturist's job a seeming snap. And yet -- nailing her caricature can be brutally challenging precisely BECAUSE everyone knows Boyle's face all too well.

With that in mind, 'Riffs has rounded up four notable cartoons caricaturing Ms. Boyle. Now -- much like on "Britian's Got Talent" -- the vote is yours. Who drew her best (pre-makeover division, natch)?
