Those who frequent The MAD Blog know I do not lightly recommend artist’s blogs or websites. There are so many good ones (and so, SO many bad ones) that singling one out is tough to do.
However, I have no problem in recommending the spankin’ new blog of Australian cartoonist and illustrator Anton Emdin. Anton sat next to me at the Australian Cartoonist Association’s Stanley Awards:
Anton and me down under
… where he won a Stanley for Best Illustrator. As it happens he is also one of the nominees for the National Cartoonists Society’s divisional award for best Magazine Illustration/ Magazine Feature along with NYC illustrator Ray Alma and yours truly. I neglected to tell him that this will be my 6th, count ’em… SIXTH, nomination in this division and I have not won yet. I am the Susan Lucci of the NCS Magazine Illustration/Magazine Feature division. Either Anton or Ray have it in the bag.
Anton’s work is really terrific. Cartoony and fun as well as beautifully crafted with a strong sense of composition and design. Plus, as you can see from the sample above, he does work for the Australian version of MAD! Great work, and well worth a look.
