What, Me Spy?

May 17th, 2012 | Posted in MAD Magazine

If you are ever in Washington DC and go to the International Spy Museum on F Street NW, you might see the above illustration on a T-shirt available for purchase . . . if you have the stomach to wear such a thing.

I did this for Warner Brothers Consumer Products specifically for the Spy Museum store, and as far as I know it is not for sale anywhere else including their online store. Just for fun here are a few of the other pencil roughs I did that they considered before settling on the trash can one:

I’m working on some other WB/MAD related merchandise art as well. Just finished one in fact, but can’t share it until I get the OK. They just gave me that on this spy one the other day.

Incidentally, the International Spy Museum has a whole line of Spy vs. Spy gear as well, but I didn’t do any of that artwork. I was hoping to pick up an Aldrich Ames dart board, but apparently they don’t have an official one.


  1. WOW! This is just… amazing! I love it! I love all the draw, but really you did a very good painting! Congratulations!

    I liked the running one too when I saw it! Great job with the coloring.
