Wizard World Chicago Starts Thursday!

August 22nd, 2017 | Posted in News

Come see me this weekend at Wizard World Comic Con, Chicago (aka Chicago Comic Con)! I’ll be in Artist’s Alley at table A49, all by my lonesome as The Lovely Anna has got better things to do other stuff going on. I’ll have all my usual junk plus new this year are copies of “Goodnight Batcave”, a brand new comic-con exclusive mini-print, and of course will be doing commissions and caricatures. Come and order those early because without Anna I will be interrupted a lot when doing them and won’t be able to do as many as I usually do, so my commission’s list will… READ MORE

2018 Workshop… in Switzerland!

August 10th, 2017 | Posted in News

I have just scheduled my first 2018 workshop- Aug 10-12th… and it’s in Switzerland! This one will be a little different than my previous workshops. The workshop is being organized by the Cartoon-Schule, a school of cartooning in Seon, Switzerland about 45 minutes outside of Zurich. While the workshop itself will be structured like my others, the school will be handling all payments for the tuition and providing the location and other logistics. I just show up and start teaching. The cost is CHF 550, and that includes: Workshop Lunch together on Saturday A signed edition of “The Mad Art of Caricature” A signed edition… READ MORE

Original MAD Art in the Studio Store!

July 27th, 2017 | Posted in News

Orange is the new Blecch, pages 2-3, original inked art I mentioned when I posted about San Diego Comic Con that I would not be bringing any original MAD art to conventions anymore. They take up too much room on the table and in my luggage, and I seldom sell more than the occasional page. I did, however, promise to put some pages for sale here on the website. So here they are. Some facts about these pages: They are all original inked art from various published parodies in MAD Inked with pen and brush on heavy bristol board, some contain some wash work The… READ MORE

Munich Workshop Underway!

July 7th, 2017 | Posted in News

My caricature workshop in Munich, Germany starts today through Sunday! Workshop class illustration above. It’s a little bigger group (16) than usual but I don’t think I’ll be back to Germany anytime soon, so I thought I’d add a few extra students as I had a lengthy waitlist. The July 12th deadline to sign up for my final 2017 workshop taking place here in MN fast approaches. The MN workshops are unique in that part of it takes place in my studio. Check out the details here. READ MORE

MN Workshop Deadline Approaches!

July 6th, 2017 | Posted in News

I had a few people sign up for my September workshop here in MN last week, so I am only ONE SHORT of the minimum needed not to cancel the class. I’m still sticking to the July 12th deadline to meet that minimum, so if you are thinking about attending one of these this will be my LAST ONE in 2017, and so far the only tentative plans I have for any in 2018 are out on the west coast. So, you midwesterners and even those out towards the east coast, this is it for a long while. Register for a spot today. READ MORE
