This is a rare (these days) issue without a TV or film parody. My main piece is a two pager featuring Trump and Comey and the infamous “trying to blend in with the curtains” handshake. I have to wait until the issue is officially out next week to share it, but I will then. I also did a small Fundalini spot illustration, which I think I can share tomorrow. It was great to see my pals Ed Steckley and Ray Alma both have pieces in this issue!

Now, What are you waiting for… a furshlugginer invitation?!? Go out and buy a copy, clod!

    It’s just not the same Mad without a TV or movie parody. I hope this trend does not continue!

  2. Mike Slaubaugh says:

    Minor typo, new contributor Benton’s first name is “Jim” not “Jimm”. Nice to see two Richmond contributions!


I’m in LA doing back to back Caricature workshops. Here’s the class illustration of workshop no. 1. Visit https://www.tomrichmond.com/workshops/ for all the details and to see where others are scheduled in 2018!
