Getting new, fresh samples on the walls of my theme park operations was always a challenge… especially since I spent most of my free time doing freelance work. So, since much of my freelancing had to do with caricature, I would often convert the caricatures I did for various jobs into samples for the parks. This sample of comedian Tom Green from 2002 is an example:
I had originally done that caricature for a job for MAD (#406, June 2001):
Kid (looking at the sample on the wall): That’s Tom Green! Who drew that one?
Me: I did.
Kid: I saw that picture in an issue of MAD Magazine! YOU STOLE THAT DRAWING OUT OF MAD MAGAZINE!!!!
Me: I work for MAD Magazine. I originally did that for MAD.
Kid looks at me blankly, blinking several times for a few seconds.
Kid: “Yeah….. RIIIIIIGHT.” Walks way.
