Seems like a long time since I’ve done one of these… every (supposedly) Monday I try and post some MAD related art or tid-bit no one has seen on the blog before. Sometimes it’s all the pencil roughs from a project, or something behind-the-scenes, or just some cool thing MAD has got going, like a book project or some such.
Today’s Monday MADness is something that demonstrates I am either losing my mind or have been in this business too long. It’s a caricature of TV talk show host Conan O’Brien I did for MAD back in 2010… my apologies for the LONG post:
The odd thing is, I can’t for the life of me remember what I did it for. I know it was not for the magazine, it was for some promotion or side project, and I never saw it used anywhere. It’s possible they were doing something where they had some kind of interaction with Conan, and they put this on whatever it was they were working on for him. No doubt that killed any deal they were discussing! Every once and awhile I’ll do some piece of art for something like that for the MAD guys. Anyway, no idea what this was for, but here it is.
