CONAN!

Rudy Giuliani

From a series of "drawing board essays" for The Washington Post:

"Kascht makes a good case for LOOKING as a means of gathering reliable information about  public figures. With his impeccable eye, deft hand and wry commentary, caricaturist Kascht delineates the White House aspirants in a way that feels more factual than exaggerated. In the process, another portrait takes shape; of the sincere artistic striving at the heart of his funny business."

 

Drawing Miss Hepburn

John recounts a surreal and poignant weekend sketching Katharine Hepburn at her home in New York a few months before the aged actress retreated entirely from the public eye. A New York Times/Discovery Channel short by Stephanie Schwam and Academy Award winning director Roger Ross Williams.
