Book Update

April 22nd, 2011 | Posted in News

Things are progressing. The book is currently in the final stages of copy editing, I have an official ISBN number and have established a publishing company called Deadline Demon Publishing. It even has a website. The book officially goes on sale Wednesday, July 20th at the San Diego Comic Con. Orders via the website will begin after I return home on July 26th.

    Have you thought about, for people that buy the book access to an online video of you or your artists drawing live. Maybe illustrating some of the points of the book. I’d pay a subscription for this. Even if it was just shot with your phone. Thanks, can’t wait for the book to come out.

  2. George Cook says:

    Cool! I am looking forward to seeing the book when it comes out!

  3. Lee Fortuna says:

    Tom, I was one of the few people years & years ago that asked you to PLEASE put a how to book out , but you said you may consider it. But I couldn’t wait, so I printed everything you had from your tutorials section on this Mad Blog. Can you at least tell us there is “more” to the content of your new book? Maybe along the lines of cartooning in general? Sorry to put you on the spot before the release, we all that visit the Mad Blog daily would like to be thrown “a little bone” regarding a book of the secrets of one of our favorite cartoonist still living today! Thx Tom!

    • Tom says:

      Lee- While the text and illustrations from the tutorials are incorporated into the book, they are expanded upon quite a bit, there are considerably more illustrations, I continue on through the rest of the face and deal with other aspects of caricature, there is a chapter dealing with the specifics of live caricature technique and airbrushing live caricature, one on freelancing and caricature and one of caricature and MAD.

      • Lee Fortuna says:

        Great Tom! In this day and age with raising college teens & gas prices going out of control, it’s hard on a lot of us to purchase certain items that are not an “immediate purchase”, like food, fuel & mortgage,uhg! Therefore it’s nice to know there will be more content to what we already have access too. Personally, I will buy the book out of a “thank you”to the Mad Blog for all the years of outstanding information on the art form of caricature, but in the cartooning industry in general! Now,… I can only hope I can buy the book from you with a small sketch & signature inside,lol? Good luck Tom on the next stages of selling this wealth of useful information!

    Hi Tom,
    Thanks for coming with a caricature tutorial book.
    What a great contribution from you it would be!
    There are already tons of caricature books out there but yours
    is the Mad style and it will be unique!

  5. Joan says:

    I hope there are international deliveries…
    because it already has the space reserved on the shelf!!
    Regards from Spain!!

    • Tom says:

      I’ll deliver it anywhere their is delivery available charging only actual shipping costs. However I’m afraid you folks on other sides of the oceans may end up paying more for shipping than you do for the book. 🙁

      • Mufeed says:

        No problem Tom, your book is special even paying more for the shipping.
        Thanks for everything 🙂

    Hola Tom.

    Yo tambien escribo desde Espa?±a, ya he preguntado en alguna ocasi??n si veremos una esdici??n escrita en espa?±ol.

    Aprovecho esta ocasi??n para ver si puedo contactar con el anterior correo de Joan y cuantos interesados en la caricatura se encuentren en Espa?±a, ya que parece que en nuestro pa??s hay poco inter?©s en el tema. Me gustar??a contactar para ver si hacemos algo, dejo mi correo de contacto

    Tom, mis felicitaciones por el libro. Yo tambi?©n lo coprare aunque me cueste m?°s el porte que los gastos de envio.

    Hi Tom.

    I also write from Spain, I’ve wondered on occasion if we see a esdici??n written in Spanish.

    I take this opportunity to see if I can contact the mail before Joan and few interested in the cartoon are in Spain, since it seems that in our country there is little interest in the subject. I would contact to see if we do something, I leave my contact email

    Tom, my congratulations on the book. I also coprare even if it costs more to freight shipping charges.
