Okay, I dunno. Why is Mr. Kassan using binoculars? Are they a special kind? How are they different? Does anyone know why he looks at his model through them? Is it an eye-sight problem? I don't know and would really like to. Thanks!
Why don't you ask him?

What I'd like is some sideways glasses like Norman Rockwell had. Because I wear glasses to see far away and with the glasses I have I look at the paper with the glasses and over the glasses at the model... grrr. Or maybe little glass stilts to lift the glasses in front of my eyes even when my head is down...
Most of the life drawing venues I go to are rather close/intimate.
The echidna would come off as far less creepy. . .
There's someone at one of my life drawing groups who wears these weird glasses with lights on them... He also hums loudly while drawing. People tend to sit far away from him.
I still don't have a clue what the lights are for, aside from being a means of gaining personal space.
He explained it himself in some of the interviews.
He uses it to place the person out of focus, so you can only see the large masses of colour without shapes. It helps a lot, think of it like squinting your eyes.
