This election season is all about Barack Obama's ears, Rudy Giuliani's forehead and Fred Thompson's "big rubbery face," according to editorial cartoonist Brian Duffy of the Des Moines Register.
Wednesday the paper hosts a debate for the Republican candidates and Thursday the paper will do the same for the Democrats. Duffy says he hopes to pen at least a dozen cartoons over the course of the debates.
Alex Cohen joins Duffy in his office to talk about his creative process.
"The first couple of times it will look a lot more like that person. And then as I become more comfortable with them, I'll stretch their face like a rubber mask," Duffy says. "I don't look at them as a person, it really sounds cold and impersonal, but for an individual to be able to draw somebody and make them a set of issues, that's the best way to do it."
