Kascht on Conan

May 6th, 2011 | Posted in General

This video is pretty long but well worth the time. John Kascht is a terrific caricature illustrator who I met when he was a guest speaker at one of the International Society of Caricature Artist’s conventions. This video isn’t just about drawing Conan O’Brien, it’s about the caricature as an art form and the application of this art form in depicting celebrities that the world is intimately familiar with.

Many thanks to Marv Sohlo for the heads up on this!

    Very cool.

    Incidentally, I have just got back from doing an evening of live caricature for total strangers. 35 heads in 4 and a half hours. Averaging about 7 minutes a head…

    Then to sit down and see this… the other end of the spectrum. It is messing with my brain. (in a good way)

    Thanks Tom for the video.

    Just like what you’ve mentioned before about the Law of Constant Mass,
    John Kascht uses this technique too!

    And it works every time!

    This was great! Thank you for calling it to our attention! Entertaining and informative, I could watch it again and again.
