Last month I attended a gathering of MAD (Magazine) men in Savannah, GA, which you can read about here if you missed my posts. Present that weekend was CNN’s Todd Leopold who, along with photographer David Holloway, covered the event. They were planning on posting an article about the gathering on CNN.com, and asked me if I would draw caricatures of each of the attending MAD artists to accompany the feature.
That article just posted today, and while it is mainly about Al Jaffee (it’s this week’s CNN “Monday Profile”) it does talk about the Savannah weekend and features a little about each artist who was there… and my caricatures as well. Actually I had already drawn most of these MAD guys at one time or another, so I just took some existing caricatures in most cases and redid them so the formats and style matched. I drew new ones of Paul Coker, Sam Viviano (although based on a sketch I did a couple years ago) and myself.
You should definitely go read the article, but here are the drawings I did anyway:
Paul Coker Jr.
