I have been singing the praises of John Read‘s fantastic publication Stay Tooned! for some time now, and was delighted when John asked me to illustrate the cover of the upcoming issue number four AKA the “MAD” issue. The issue won’t be in print until at least next month, but John gave me permission the other day to preview the art I did for the cover.
The issue contains profiles of some of the Usual Gang of Idiots: Sergio Aragon?¬©s, Paul Coker Jr., Jack Davis, Don “Duck” Edwing, John Kovaleski, Scott Nickel, Ted Rall and myself, along with the usual other great stuff you have come to expect from Stay Tooned!. It was a fun cover to do and I can’t wait to see the issue. Although he told me he isn’t ready to do so quite yet, I am sure John will start promoting and taking advanced orders for this issue soon.
Here’s some close ups of some of the areas of the illustration:

So keep an eye out for this one coming soon!
