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

NEW Paint n’ Pixels at MOA Booth

April 6th, 2017 | Posted in News

I recently closed down my combo caricatures and airbrush tattoo booth at Nickelodeon Universe at the Mall of America and rebranded it “Paint ‘n Pixels”, a caricature booth that offers either traditional airbrush caricatures or ones done 100% digitally… both for the same price. The traditional caricatures are our usual originals done with either graphite or marker (depending on the artist) and airbrush, where you get one original on 12×16 paper. The digital verison is done using ClipStudio Paint on a 16″ Wacom Workstudio Pro, and you getth both a high resolution 12 x 16 print and a screen resolution version either emailed or messaged… READ MORE

MAD’s Move Out West…

March 21st, 2017 | Posted in MAD Magazine

A week or so ago Bleeding Cool broke the news that MAD was apparently following the rest of DC Comics out to Burbank “soon”. Back in 2013 when DC announced they were moving out of NYC and to Burbank, I wrote this post speculating on what would happen with MAD. The short version is I saw four possible scenarios: Enough current MAD editors and art staff make the move that MAD remains the MAD we know and love. DC bankrolls a small, separate MAD office in NYC, and MAD remains the MAD we know and love. DC forms a new editorial and art staff to… READ MORE
