Here is a look at the two pieces I have in MAD this issue:
MAD 20- Gates Vs. Crowley
Everybody remembers the big deal that was made out of “Beer Summit” this summer, when Obama invited Harvard professor Henry Gates and Cambridge police Sergent James Crowley to the White House and had a beer with them and Joe Biden on a patio table on the lawn. More was made out of that than the event that led to their invitation: when Crowley and other police officers arrested Gates on charges of disorderly conduct when he was confronted by the officers when he and his driver were trying to force open the jammed front door of HIS OWN HOUSE.
MAD has this one listed as Dumb Thing #4, and the concept was an “Ultimate Fighting” style poster:
This was a rare opportunity for me to do a little more painted style of art for MAD. Here are some close ups:
Board Game Movies
The other piece I did was a piece about movies based on board games, which was precipitated by Universal Picture’s plans to film six movies based on Hasbro games. These are some of the images, see if you can guess the board games they are meant to mimic (shouldn’t be too hard):
I used my colored line technique on these, doing caricatures of the actors that are supposed to be starring in each film. The piece was written by Jacob Lambert.
See the rest of them and the finished “USC” (Ultimate Stereotyping Challenge) poster in MAD #502!!
