Video: Steve Bell's Process

Above: "George Bush's farewell tour," a Steve Bell cartoon from June, 2008

The one and only Paul Giambarba links to a wonderful bit of video of The Guardian's editorial cartoonist Steve Bell, doodling and then drawing a finished cartoon. He talks candidly about his process and time constraints, and the problems of getting a caricature right. He shows us many pages from his sketchbook.
"It's always a terrible sign of failure when your victims want to buy the artwork."
Thanks for this, Paul!
