    Who is the slap shot girl? Looks like she changed between sketch and final version?

    • Tom says:

      No one in particular, but the editors decided they wanted a different look to the girl… more of the blonde bombshell type, but a little more midwestern thrown in.

        I love your work. Your splash pages in MAD are great. So much crammed into two pages! I like the first illustration here of the guy getting ready to eat. He looks French.

    You pack so much of art n humor in one sketch, its a treat to dissect each image to learn and smile :)

    Do you find it a challenge to come up with different faces? As often as I draw characters I find that I am haunted by similar head shape and features. Your work is nicely diverse.

    • Tom says:

      Everyone has those tendencies. I learned early on that it is important to make your secondary characters have as much diversity and personality as your caricatures of actual people. I have several books full of model head shots, and not beautiful models but just normal people models for catalogs, that I use sometimes for inspiration for these different faces. Mostly I just make them up.
