Above & Beyond: John Kascht

By Joe Zeff Design

Description

John Kascht is among the most prominent American caricature artists of the past half-century. His work elegantly straddles the line between cartooning and portraiture, and is part of the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Institution's National Portrait Gallery.

"Above & Beyond: John Kascht" takes you inside his wondrous world, to a tiny farm in Pennsylvania where he lives with his wife — a beekeeper — and 500,000 honeybees. It is here that he deconstructs the world’s most recognizeable faces and bodies with the meticulousness of a forensic examiner, and reassembles them in his own inimitable way to create iconic portraits that appear on magazines, theater posters, billboards and book covers.

In this app, the second in the acclaimed “Above & Beyond” series, we present the story of John Kascht and his unforgettable work, told through his own words, caricatures, pencil sketches and other multimedia features.

Recommended for all ages.

Really Well Done

This is a really great app that showcases an extraordinary artist, John Kascht. I enjoyed hearing the artist talk about the thought process behind the creation of some incredible portraits. I wish I could have rewinded the audio a bit without replaying each file from the beginning. This is a feel good app that will stir your imagination and make you smile. Well done. :)

Superb!

What a fantastic insight into the mind and character of an artist that says so much about popular culture with so few words. Fantastic interactive app for anyone who enjoys the art of caricature, and wants to know a little more about the thought and process that goes into it. As the the title says: superb!

Entertaining & Educational!

An amazing app that highlights the amazing talent and insight of John Kascht. As a professor, tech enthusiast, and fan of his, this app is the perfect mixture of education, entertainment, and eye-candy. A must have! Let's hope the folks at Above & Beyond do an app featuring the excellent and quirky art work of Josh Agle (Shag).
