I’ll be at C2E2 at McCormick Place South in Artist’s Ally at booth number O16 tomorrow, Saturday, and Sunday with my booth babe The Lovely Anna! I’ll be signing stuff, charging outrageous prices for commission drawings and caricatures, hawking copies of my book and limited edition prints (Sherlock and Batman only) as well as some (cheap!) convention exclusives, and ridiculously large and overpriced MAD originals.

As always, bring me a cold can of Monster Zero Ultra (white can) and get a free “Alfred as Batman” drawing!

Sunday Mailbag- Empty!

April 19th, 2015

I haven’t had to post this image in a long time, but I am fresh out of questions for the Sunday mailbag!

Well, it’s not really completely empty, but the only ones I’ve got right now are either repeats of previous questions or of the “can you teach me how to cross-hatch?” or “how do you exaggerate people in caricature?” variety which aren’t really questions so much as they are requests for long and involved tutorials, and are needing a lot more time than I can give for this weekly feature. A good Sunday Mailbag question can certainly involve an image or two and a somewhat long answer, but anything like a tutorial is a different matter.

It’s entirely possible that people have run out of questions. I have been doing this every week for almost nine years, and there are only so many questions people might have about freelancing, illustration, etc. So maybe this feature has run it’s course. I guess that’s up to you.

So, if you have questions concerning cartooning, illustration, freelancing, MAD Magazine or other similar subjects I’ll be happy to answer them as best I can. E-mail me your questions and I’ll try and answer them here!
