The Jeff Dunham Project

Jeff Dunham’s Achmed the Dead Terrorist character

I’ve been alluding often here on The MAD Blog for the last year about artwork I am doing for ?¬?ber-popular comedian/ventriloquist Jeff Dunham, but have never been more specific. That’s because, as usually goes along when doing anything for folks in show business, there are confidentiality agreements galore involved. Some of that work is going to start appearing here and there, and Jeff has told me I can fill people in a little (operational word) on what’s all involved.

The image above is one of a series of illustrations I’ve done/am working on of his various characters, this one being Achmed the Dead Terrorist. That’s only part of this ongoing project. Other aspects have included multiple other, less complex art for use in various projects and items.

The most exciting thing I’ve been doing for him has been concept art for… well, I’ll have to let him tell you about that. An upcoming TV special on Jeff will spill the beans on that project. I’ll let everybody know when that is announced and when it will air. In the meantime, you can get an idea of what I might have been involved with on Jeff’s Comedy Central special, which you can either order the DVD of here or see re-aired on Comedy Central on Sunday, October 30 at 7 pm and 8:30 pm.

It’s been great fun working with Jeff and his agents. They’ve given me a great deal of latitude on working their stuff in around the edges of more pressing deadlines, allowed me space my own artistic input in the work, and Jeff himself is a great guy. In fact, he wrote a blurb for the back of my book!

More on this to come as I am able to share.

    Dunham is one of the greatest ventriloquists ever. We saw him recently and one of his characters had HIS own dummy!
