Sketch o’the Week- The War Doctor!

Wednesday, February 5th, 2014


I give up. Due to popular request from some very obsessive Doctor Who fans, I give you Doctor 8.5 aka The War Doctor, as portrayed by John Hurt. I will not be drawing David Tennant‘s hand, which having regenerated in an episode apparently counts as an individual Doctor regeneration, nor any of the actors who filled in for original doctors who passed away, nor Peter Cushing from the separate film versions. Thank you.

Oh, and here’s the whole lineup, with sketches inserted:

Sketch o’the Week- The 12th Doctor!

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014


The BBC just released the first image of Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor, complete with his costume, so I could not resist doing a drawing of him as the official Doctor.

I will NOT be issuing another limited edition print with Capaldi added, because that would just not be right. I am happy that the drawing I was doing of him as the “12th Doctor option” on the current print was not too far from his actual look in the show:

For the few remaining ones of these I do, I will get the specifics of the costume more accurate. BTW, I have less than 30 of these prints left now. Going fast!


Sketch o’the Week- Joe Mauer

This is a quick, live-caricature style drawing of Joe for a Twins-related event I will be doing this weekend. I’ll report on that next week sometime.

Sketch o’the Week- Touchdown!

Wednesday, January 15th, 2014

referee Dave

Sorry but I have to cop-out on this week’s SotW as I am frantically trying to finish up a big MAD job, among other things. Therefore this week’s sketch is a rough of a recent illustration from Penthouse, one of my ongoing series for the header of rocker Dave Navarro‘s advice column in the magazine.

Sketch o’the Week- Finnick Odair!

Wednesday, December 11th, 2013


ClaflinWell, actually actor Sam Claflin, who plays Finnick in the new Hunger Games movie, “Catching Fire”—but I’m sure HG fans (or “Tributes” as they are lamely trying to be know as) don’t care. This is a quick study.

Sketch o’the Week- JJ Abrams!

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013

JJ Abrams

This week’s subject is superstar director JJ Abrams. JJ is a huge fan of MAD Magazine, so there is clearly something wrong with him. However, he makes great movies and TV shows, and I recently did a little project for him and sent this sketch to him as a thank you along with the original art. At some point I will be able to share the art I did for him… it was a sort of personal commission so nothing as exciting as a Star Wars illustration. I did ask to be paid for the work by being cast as a Jedi in the next movie, but he elected to pay me in money instead. You can’t blame a nerfherder for trying.

Sketch o’the Week- JFK

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

JFKWell, not really a sketch today… too busy with a couple of projects I will share later. This was a study of U.S. President John F. Kennedy I did for, of all things, an animated commercial for gold investment company SwissAmercia. This Friday marks 50 years since his assassination in Dallas, Texas.

Sketch o’the Week- Bill O’Reilly

Wednesday, November 13th, 2013

This week’s subject is conservative political pundit Bill O’Reilly. Good, old-fashioned pencil on paper.

Stooges Week! Moe Howard

Friday, November 8th, 2013


Finally, the last but far from least Stooge: Moe Howard. Moe was basically the driving force behind the Stooges, usually acting as business manager and idea man. His death from lung cancer in 1975 ended his attempted Stooges comeback, and the group itself.

Hope you enjoyed Stooges week! Female readers of Tom’s MAD Blog can now return to reading posts they “get” with this week’s Sunday Mailbag… at least until I decide to do a “Monty Python Week”.

Stooges Week! Larry Fine

Thursday, November 7th, 2013

Larry Fine

Today’s Stooge is Larry Fine, One of the original members from the Ted Healy vaudeville days. Larry was part of all the Stooges incarnations, and his major stroke in 1970 essentially ended the group—although Moe attempted a comeback in 1975 with character actor Emil Sitka taking over for Larry. That project never got past a few publicity still photos, as Moe became ill before anything was filmed.
