Caricature Artist John Kascht Draws Conan For The Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery


Renowned caricature artist John Kascht has created incredible portraits of many celebrities over the years, including Eminem, Bill Murray, and Mick Jagger. Recently, John sat down to capture our own Conan O'Brien, documenting the entire process for the Smithsonian Portrait Gallery in a documentary film called "Funny Bones: Anatomy of a Celebrity Caricature". When it was over, John had three amazing Conan-inspired pieces: a Coco Bust, a watercolor painting, and a graphite drawing.

The film "Funny Bones: Anatomy of a Celebrity Caricature" is no longer on display at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, but is now on YouTube and embedded below. If you're a fan of Conan or caricature art in general, you'll probably love this.
