Marginal Talent Dept.

That headline is a joke, or course. The only thing marginal about the talents of Sergio Aragon?©s is the placement of one of his ongoing MAD magazine contributions (i.e. those great cartoons in the margins of each issue). You can see for yourself now that his original art show is now on exhibit at the Ojai Valley Museum through October 4th. There are several events Sergio will be appearing at during the show, including:

Opening Reception – Saturday, August 22, 5-7 pm
$25 per person
By reservation only

August 30:  Cartooning with Sergio
October 4:  Sergio on Comics & Humor

Current 2009 Members: $6 per person
Nonmembers: $8 per person

One of the most respected and recognized illustrators working today has finally gotten into the 21st century and put up a web page. C.F. Payne, whose client list is wayyyy too long and impressive to even begin to list here, has his own little corner of the web where you can check out his work, prints he has of some of his incredible paintings and even contact him for a private commission!

    Great find. Didn’t know Payne put up a site. Love his Reader’s Digest work and I can always spot his stuff in Time. Plus he is a Cincinnati guy!!

  2. Hey there Tom,
