Where concepts come from


I created this 7-page handout back in 2006 for an illustration workshop I attended at the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. Susan Mango Curtis, the leader of the session, pushed us all to have fun and share ideas. The real treat for me was seeing John Kascht, the greatest living caricaturist, do a live demonstration…

Anyhow, this was something I prepared for the attendees to help them come up with ideas when they get artist’s block. It’s my own system.

Feel free to download the pdf and print it out.
