Monday MADness- Traff-eccch!

May 19th, 2014 | Posted in Monday MADness

This week’s MADness is from MAD #405’s parody of the Oscar-winning movie “Traffic” entitled “Traff-eccch!” written by Arnie Kogen. This was my very first movie parody for MAD, and the splash page was made up of a series of spot illustrations superimposed over maps of the United States and Mexico. The weird yellow and blue casts to some of the spots were to mimic the color palette of the film, which changed depending on the location of the scene… Mexico was yellow, Washington DC was blue and other scenes were normal color.

Back in the early days I did the pages as a series of rows of panels, which the MAD guys then assembled into full pages. A few of those are also below.
