Pittsburgh Workshop Report

June 16th, 2017 | Posted in News

I spent last weekend in Pittsburgh PA with the crazy crew shown above teaching one of my caricature workshops. As usual I had a lot of diversity in skill level, from beginners to seasoned live caricature pros to professional cartoonists/comic book artists and animators. We had a lot of fun, drew a lot of faces and (I hope) everyone learned something. Thanks to the group for taking the workshop! I have one more workshop this year with available space in it, taking place Sept 15th-17th here in Minnesota. The MN workshops are unique in that the Friday event happens here in my home/studio and I am… READ MORE

MAD Moving News

June 13th, 2017 | Posted in MAD Magazine

The big news on the MAD move to Burbank is… there is no news. DC Entertainment has given no official (or unofficial for that matter, at least to my knowledge) information on their plans for the magazine once it gets to the west coast. Here’s the little I do know: The New York staff will be doing the magazine through issue 550. This will be the last issue produced in NYC by the current MAD staff, and will be out in Feb 2018 but will be produced before Dec 31, 2017. The offices will close at the end of 2017. I’m told only one of… READ MORE

MAD Art of Caricature- Korean Edition!

April 18th, 2017 | Posted in News

Two years ago this August I wrote about how a publisher in Korea purchased the Korean foreign language rights to my book The Mad Art of Caricature, and planned on publishing a Korean language edition of it. After having heard from some caricature artist friends in Korea that the book was in recently print, I finally got my three copies that were part of the original deal in the mail yesterday. The publisher took a lot of liberties with the placement of the art, and made some weird choices. Especially on the cover, where they moved some of the images around ignoring the fact that… READ MORE
