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.
