Fascinating video by caricaturist John Kascht as he walks us through his process for a drawing of Conan O’Brien. It’s about half an hour long and I’ve been watching in ten-minute chunks. I still have another segment to go but there’s much to discuss in this already. One particularly interesting bit for me is when Kascht takes time to sculpt a bust of Conan on his way to capturing his face on paper. I always wind up following so many byways as I work on a story, often winding up with hundreds of pages that don’t make it into the final manuscript but were vital in helping shape the tale, so it was interesting and fun for me to see a visual artist taking rabbit trails of his own.
