13 Days of the Doctor- William Hartnell!

August 26th, 2015 | Posted in Sketch O'The Week

You can probably guess what this new caricature of William Hartnell as the first Doctor Who is for. I have at least a dozen people come up to me at every convention I appear at and ask if I still have any Doctor Who prints, and who are very disappointed that they are sold out. So, I am finally succumbing to the many requests that I do a new DH print that includes Peter Capaldi and John Hurt. For this I will also be doing all new caricatures of the original 11 Doctors, and this is a study for the first Doctor. As always, this… READ MORE

Comic-Cons and Commissions

August 25th, 2015 | Posted in General

The Lovely Anna and I just returned from the Wizard World Chicago Comic Con, where we had a busy but fun time. I only do a handful of conventions a year: the San Diego Comic-Con and New York Comic Cons are the only ones I get on an airplane for. Then I do both the Wizard World and C2E2 shows in Chicago because that is a reasonable 7 hour drive from here. Last year I did the Wizard World Minneapolis Con, and I will probably do that one again this year just because it’s right in my backyard. Other cons I have done because I… READ MORE

Monday MADness- Presidential Survivor!

This week’s Monday MADness is something from WAAAAY back. In fact it’s technically the very first thing I ever did for MAD that got “published”… so to speak. Way back in the summer/fall of 2000, MAD spent several months posting original content on its website, then called Called the “MADness of the Week”, these were specially written and drawn features that were sometimes “rollover” images or illustrations that had pop up gags, sometimes static images with text and later included flash-based shorts with limited animation. MAD had their freelancers produce the work, both writing and art, and then would produce the features and post… READ MORE

Sunday Mailbag- Digital Sketching?

August 23rd, 2015 | Posted in Mailbag

Q: Recently you changed your working process and now you are doing your pencil sketches for MAD parodies just digitally. Is this now your favorite method for all sketches? And I think your inks are still real inks. Do you print out your digital sketches and ink over them? Can you give some details and pros and cons of your new working process? A: I’d say I know do about 75% of my “roughs” on the computer these days. The Wacom Cintiq has evolved into as close to the feel of drawing on paper as I think digital technology can get, so it’s very comfortable… READ MORE
