As promised, here is a sneak peek of the artwork for my piece in MAD #498, “MAD Exposes Who’s Thinking What at the Obama Inauguration” written by Desmond Devlin, Jeff Kruse, Jacob Lambert, Frank Santopadre and Dennis Snee.
MAD called me up for this one with a short deadline and just as I was leaving for a long weekend with The Lovely Anna. I got back and banged it out in about a week. Frequent readers of The MAD Blog might recognize a few drawings from the “Sketch o’the Week” in there… I used some sketchbook drawings as cameos where appropriate. Between the three pages there are 51 caricatures plus two pals of mine.
There are a lot of unique elements and issues that need attention when doing a crowd scene. As I mentioned yesterday, on Thursday I will post a fairly comprehensive tutorial on the composition, layout and execution of a crowd scene. Check back after our usual Wednesday sketch tomorrow.
