Grand Rapids Comic Con!

November 20th, 2014 | Posted in News


I’ll be a special guest this weekend at the Grand Rapids Comic Con in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The show runs from Fri the 21st through Sunday the 23rd at the Deltaplex, 2500 Turner Ave. NW.

I’ll be doing a talk on caricature on Saturday the 22nd at 10:30 am:

Saturday Nov. 22nd- Main Stage

10:30 to 11:30 am

Tom Richmond, “The MAD World Of Caricatures”: Join MAD Magazine artist Tom Richmond for a fun and informative presentation about¬¨‚Ćthe art of caricature! Tom got his start in art doing caricatures in theme parks in¬¨‚Ć1985 while a college student, and parlayed that into a career doing caricature and¬¨‚Ćhumorous illustration for publications,television and film, advertising, newspapers,¬¨‚Ćgames and other media including being one of the “Usual Gang of Idiots” at MAD since¬¨‚Ć2000! Tom will talk about what makes a successful caricature, his process and how it¬¨‚Ćall works for professional illustration clients… he’ll even take you through a MAD¬¨‚Ćjob from start to finish!

So come by the main stage at 10:30 on Saturday if you are looking for a quiet place to take a nap.

Otherwise you’ll find me at a table #421 in the “Comic Room!” area with my plethora of copies of my book, original MAD pages, limited edition prints and plenty of drawing stuff to do commissions and caricatures for people. As always, bring me a cold Monster Ultra Zero (white can) energy drink and get a free sketch of Alfred E. Neuman as Batman!

The show hours are:

  • Friday: 4 pm until 9 pm
  • Saturday: 10 am until 7 pm
  • Sunday: 10 am until 5 pm

Hope to see you there!
