Post Number 1000!

1000 Posts!!

It’s hard to believe but this marks the 1,000th post here on The MAD Blog. I’m celebrating by going to Disney World!

Well, actually I’m in Orlando at Disney World with The Lovely Anna and Elizabeth because today is Elizabeth’s 19th birthday (!!!), and Disney World is one of the few places on Earth she can go and really like being there. Of course this means Anna and I will be riding “Peter Pan”, “It’s a Small World” and “Winnie the Pooh” at least a dozen times each today, but every time is like the first time when it makes Elizabeth smile.

Thanks to the miracle of advance blog posting, post 1,001 will magically appear here tomorrow.

Thanks to everyone who frequents The MAD Blog. 2009 will see many more installments of my “Drawing Caricatures” tutorials, as well as a few other tutorials like the one I have planned later this month on drawing crowd scenes.

Now you’ll excuse me while I enjoy my Mickey Ice Cream Bar and heckle some Disney caricature artists.

    Well hot damn, a big congratulations on the milestone!

    As it happens, I will be making a visit to WDW at the end of the month; an unnecessary trip that was planned on a pure whim the other day when a friend (who was desperately looking for an excuse to get away from the weather for a few days) asked if I wanted to join him.

    Also, enjoy Space Mountain while you can. I hear they’re shutting down for a while starting this spring for their first renovation in 10 years.

    Happy Birthday and Happy New Year and Happy 1000th post anniversary!

    Enjoy leaning over cartoonists shoulders and saying, “I don’t get it…”!

    Congrats on 1000th blog! Looking forward to reading the next 1000!

    I’m over here in Tampa, so tell my neighbors over there in Orlando I said, “Hello” (although I think Mickey isn’t too fond of me since last time I was there I might have given him a funny look–he’s got really big ears).

    Wow, Tom! I don’t know whether to congratulate you, or us, the viewers, because we get SO MUCH out of the blog. Here’s to many more!

    Congrats Tom!

    I’ve got to confess that I didn’t think you’d keep this blog rolling along with all your busy-ness and hectic schedule.

    A very happy birthday to you, Elizabeth! What a special treat. I’ve always enjoyed the Peter Pan ride (I still remember the stunned wonder on our daughter’s face her first time on that ride when she was three…) and “It’s A Small World” was my mother-in-law’s all time favorite, so glad to hear they bring the smiles. Cheers!
