Today’s Monday MADness is a look at the pencil roughs for a features entitled “America’s Next Top Mobster”, which was a mash-up of “The Sopranos” and “American;s Next Top Model” written by Desmond Devlin and appearing in MAD #482, October 2007.
As you can see my pencils got a lot looser on the last page, where I literally have circles for heads sometimes and only impart the very basic information for the MAD staff to review. Likely I was running short on time and I wanted to get these to the editors so I could move on to the finals, but Sometimes I am just this loose. By time I had done this job I had worked for MAD for seven years, and they knew what they could expect from me in the finals.
