New Workshops: London UK and a second in Atlanta!

November 17th, 2017 | Posted in News

Justice Served

Glenn sharing his great ISCA illustration of the MAD guest speakers in 2009: L to R: Me, Mark Fredrickson, Glenn, Sam Viviano, Hermann Mejia Two years ago this New Years Day, a talented, kind, and hard working caricaturist artist named Glenn Ferguson was attacked by a disgruntled co-worker named Freddie Torres, and brutally stabbed in the head with a pair of scissors at their workplace in Universal Studios Orlando.

Illustrated U.S. Presidents Book

October 26th, 2017 | Posted in News

The publishing house Papersalt creates “gifts to inspire, empower and educate kids and families”. They just released a kid’s book called The Presidents with interesting facts about each of the 45 Presidents of the United States, illustrated with caricatures by yours truly. You might think you recognize these caricatures as color versions of the ones featured on my no-longer-available president’s poster… and you’d be right! Papersalt bought the rights to these images for this book, and had me color them for the project. Here are some sample pages: The book is 48 pages,  8.5″ x 5.5″ wire-o book on heavy-weight uncoated cover stock. If interested… READ MORE

Eighth Printing of TMAoC!

October 24th, 2017 | Posted in News

It’s hard to believe but I just received the shipment of the eighth printing of The Mad Art of Caricature since its release in November of 2011. That sounds more impressive than it actually is, since the largest print order I’ve ever placed was 4,000 copies. Storage with my distributor is limited so I can’t order any more than that at a time, so I’ve done many smaller runs rather than fewer big ones. With this printing (3,500 copies this time), a total of 28,000 copies of this book will exist on this planet. Placed end to end they would stretch just over 5 miles.… READ MORE
