A 2019 CHCCS Achievement Award from the Canadian Human Computer Communications Society is presented to Dr. Karan Singh. This award recognizes the significant and varied contributions he has made in interactive computer graphics, spanning geometric modeling, art and visual perception, facial and character animation, and sketch-based techniques and interfaces. CHCCS invites a publication by the award winner or an awardwinner interview to be included in the proceedings, and this year we continue with the latter, which allows for a varied discussion regarding research, insights, and the contributions of the award winner. What follows is an edited transcript of a conversation between Karan Singh and Michiel van de Panne that took place on March 26, 2019, via Skype.
