Letterman Caricature

Letterman sketch sm

I don’t often have the time just to draw caricatures as I once did. I am blessed with many interesting projects on the boil including The Economist 2012 Wall calendar, animation and my work with students at UMBC.

Still caricature is a deep passion, so recently while taking a short break from my work on the Wall Calendar, I drew the sketch above of the American TV personality David Letterman. It was great fun to draw… I need to do this more often…

Kal goes Democrazy on Maryland Morning

Kal USD promo art web

I will be on WYPR”s Maryland Morning broadcast Friday morning¬†discussing the great website¬†USDemocrazy.com.

Here’s a link to the audio, we start at the 26:50 mark.

USDemocrazy is a project that I lead as Artist-in-Residence at the University of Maryland Baltimore County UMBC. The site is a current events/educational/entertainment site dedicated to making the news fun and interesting.

I have corralled an elite team of University student bloggers (I refer to them as my vagabonding Blogateers) to supply daily updates on current events.

We are also teaming up with High Schools around the country who are interested in using USDemocrazy in the classroom as a tool for discussing current events.

It’s a great project with enormous potential. To learn more, listen to the interview or contact me here!

Kal Cover story

March 12th, 2009 | Category: Cover art, News

I have had the great honor to be the Artist-in-Residence at the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) since 2006. My experience has been enriching and extraordinary. I have worked along side talented and generous colleagues and with energetic and engaged students. Now my rewarding experience has been captured in words by writer and editor Richard Byrne. The inaugural UMBC magazine profiled me in their recent cover story.  You can read it here: UMBC story

My students describe me a demanding creative force. I guess that is a charge I will not deny… as I am very demanding of myself! ¬†
