Animated Monday MADness: Dog with a Star Log

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 14:50:30 +0000

Here’s a look at another “mash-up” spoof I worked on for the animated MAD show on Cartoon Network, “Dog with a Star Log”. Sorry, the only video of the segment online is some camcorder pirated job on YouTube and I won’t post that here. Actually I thought this was one of the best segments I worked on in terms of my drawings being translated to animation.

Sunday Mailbag: MAD Changes?

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 15:07:17 +0000

What you are referring to is this: Above: Actual art I submitted for a page in the parody of “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” Page as it appeared in MAD #443, July 2004 The MAD art staff added the spaces between the panels, Sergio’s marginal, and of course the…

New Workshops: London UK and a second in Atlanta!

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 12:00:16 +0000

I’ve added a second Atlanta area workshop and one in London, England to the list of 2018 dates! The second Atlanta workshop takes place Feb 23rd-25th, the weekend following the original Atlanta dates. I already have half the class booked through the waiting list from the first workshop, so if you want in on this one don’t wait too long. Since I’m already going to be in Europe for the workshop in Switzerland, I’ve added another in London. The dates for this one are Aug 14th-16th, which is a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday as opposed to a weekend. August is peak wedding season in the…

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. Glenn was lucky to survive, and was left with severe impairment in speech, motor skills, eyesight and other issues including PTSD. Torres was arrested onsite and has been in jail since that day. Yesterday ended the…

This week’s sketch is of one of my favorite rockers from when I was a kid… the ageless Angus Young from AC/DC! As always, the original is available in the Studio Store.
