200+ Amazon Reviews for TMAoC!

February 7th, 2017 | Posted in General

Just a few days ago my book The Mad Art of Caricature hit 200 reviews (actually 201 now) on Amazon. Its been on Amazon for about 5 years so that might not seem like a lot, but getting over 200 reviews is pretty great. The overwhelming majority are 4 or 5 stars and very complimentary, which is a lot better than “this sucked”. Of course, if you have a book on Amazon and want a good laugh just read some of the oddball negative reviews your book gets. Some of them are real head scratchers. Here are three negative reviews of my book: Shannon G:… READ MORE

Right of Publicity and Caricature- Reblog

January 24th, 2017 | Posted in General

After being in existence for a long time, a blog will have a lot of back content that is buried so deep no one will ever see it unless they specifically search for it… and if they don’t know it’s there they can’t do that, can they? The MAD Blog is going on 11 years old, with almost 4,000 posts and there are a few articles that I am sure many new readers have missed that they would nevertheless be interested in reading. I used to have a page with links to past articles that were popular and of some importance of topic called “Posts… READ MORE

When you have eliminated the impossible…

I had to share these extremely cool photos of what my fellow Sherlockian David Haugen did with his limited edition Sherlock print… he managed to get ORIGINAL autographs of all eight Sherlocks depicted and added them to the matted and framed piece: Pretty impressive considering John Barrymore died in 1942, Basil Rathbone died in 1967, Peter Cushing died in 1994 and Jeremy Brett died in 1995. David told me the hardest one to get was Cushing, because of the Star Wars connection. Not surprising… Cushing is the hardest working dead actor in Hollywood. Anyway, I thought this was awesome. Well done, David!   READ MORE
