Exhibit & Discussion of Interest: John Kascht

A traveling exhibit of John Kascht‘s work opens at The Cartoon Art Museum (that’s out in San Francisco) September 22nd, before heading east to The Billy Ireland Cartoon Museum and Library.  Mr. Kascht made his New Yorker debut in the issue of November 9, 1992 with a portrait of Jay Leno.

Mr. Kascht told the Spill that:
“The exhibition includes 75 original drawings and watercolors, a big wall of pencil sketches, step-by-step process displays, and my never-before-exhibited life drawings of Katharine Hepburn which are, as far as I know, the last images ever made of her.”

If you’re out west and can make the September opening you’ll be able to catch Mr. Kascht in conversation with Pete Docter, the Chief Creative Officer of Pixar. Info here and on the poster below. And here’s a link to info on the exhibit catalog.
