On the Drawing Board

November 9th, 2006 | Posted in On the Drawing Board

Without a MAD job on the board, I’m actually getting caught up on a bunch of jobs. Here are the finals of the “Nader vs. GM” project for the American Museum of Tort Law.





These final images will be printed at the outrageous size of 36″ x 60″. Each ‘page’ has areas that will contain inset elements like an actual copy of Ralph Nader‘s “Unsafe at Any Speed” book, newspaper articles, informational text and video monitors. Thus there are ‘dead spaces’ and unfinished areas to accommodate these separate elements.

I expect a final round of revisions on this, as Nader has had comments all along like “ears and nose are too pronounced”. I thought I was being nice.

I am also working on a caricature of Pete Rose that will be turned into a drinking mug, and another Marlin workplace poster.

    You can say alot of things about Ralph Nader, but having a great sense of humor probably isn’t one of them. The guy’s not exactly “class clown” material…and has pretty much built a career out of being a dour, sky-is-falling scold.

    Heh heh. No, I don’t think Nader is well known for his sense of humor. Why they hired an artist from MAD Magazine to do one of these is beyond me. It doesn’t help that Nader looks more like a cadaver than a living human today, when trying to draw him as a younger man. He doesn’t look like hte same guy.
