Biting the Big Apple

20140710-182325-66205272.jpg

The Lovely Anna and I are currently in New York City with Number One Son Thomas as part of his high school graduation present. When one of our kids graduate, they get a trip with just mom and dad to the destination of their choice (within reason). Tom chose NYC and we are seeing multiple shows, touring the sites and putting some miles on the shoes.

We’ll be dropping by the MAD offices tomorrow. I was going to bring the last two pages of my latest job for them with me and hand them in like the old school guys did back when Bill Gaines was there (Al Jaffee still does this) but did not for three reasons:

1. Since my art is digital, it would be anticlimactic to just hand over a thumb drive
2. They stopped giving you a paycheck on the spot before Bill passed away
3. The issue goes to press tomorrow, and I’d have been strung up by my thumbs turning it in that late.

So, I’ll just go in and harass editorial. That never gets old.

    Just thought I would share that last summer I took my first trip to New York and made a point to stop by the MAD offices. Editor Dave Croatto was very kind to meet with me and give me a tour. It was a highlight of my trip, and I’m sure a low point of his day!
