Kal at Tedx

March 18th, 2011 | Category: News, Performance

DSC_0748
In early March, I had the privilege of addressing the TEDx Warwick conference hosted at Warwick University in the UK. The event was a delight. The student organizers assembled  a provocative group of speakers in a very professional environment.

“TED” talks are great fun. ¬†Your mission as a TED speaker is to give the “Talk of a lifetime” in 18 minutes. (For those of you unfamiliar with the “TED” experience, I highly recommend you take a visit the TED website.)

I hope my speech reflected well on my lifetime (thus far)… but I will let you be the judge.¬†I have just learned my TEDx talk is now available for all to view. You can see it below!

I recently attended the fabulous “World in 2011 Festival” sponsored by The Economist in New York City. I was sketching the speakers and was asked to give the final address to the attendees. You can see my chat in the video above. Below are some close ups of the sketches I discuss in the video.

The World in 2011 Festival

November 27th, 2010 | Category: Economist, Performance


The Economist is hosting an extraordinary event this coming week in New York City. “The World in 2011 Festival” is a 3 day program of talks, discussions and entertainment focusing on the possibilities and potential of 2011. Speakers range from President Bill Clinton, Admiral Gary Roughead, Chief of US Naval Operations, to¬†Master chef Jose Andres, and Grammy award winning artist Loudon Wainwright III.

I will be at the event drawing, capturing the 3 days activities in lightning sketches. At the end of the program I will give my cartoon predictions for the year ahead as well as a “Cartoon history” of the proceedings… helping the the event to “draw to a close”.

You can find out more information about the festival here.

Kal on Tape

November 03rd, 2010 | Category: 3-D, News, Performance


I recently was the keynote speaker at the annual “Technite” event sponsored by the Greater Baltimore Tech Council. The good folks at OpenRangeVideo recorded the evening’s festivities and have now crafted together my presentation for all to see.

The talk features my journey from the printed page to 3D animation (featuring some some fun cartoons). It is 3 parts (total time 28 minutes). I hope you enjoy it!.
