Fold THIS!

October 4th, 2010 | Posted in MAD Magazine

A great article on a great cartoonist: Al Jaffe in the NY Times. Al’s getting a lot of press lately now that his book Al Jaffee’s MAD LIFE is now available… in fact you can order it here. My copy is on the way. Al Jaffee is one of the true geniuses of visual humor, and at 89 is still sharp as the proverbial tack and producing great work.

To say Al’s life has been “eventful” would be the ultimate stupid answer to a snappy question, if you’ll pardon the reversal. The article linked above touches briefly on what has been a life of epically colorful proportion… and I can’t wait to read his book which was illustrated by Al (of course) no doubt is equally epic color.

    I’ve been buying Al Jaffee artwork off of ebay for a few years – he and Bob Clarke are my favorites to collect. Saving up for a fold-in.

  2. I love your caricatures. I am also starting to do caricatures, I call them Gtoons and I always look at your stuff to get inspired. Thanks for the inspiration.
