I'm in MAD magazine . . . Big Whoop!





MAD 489, on stands now! I can finally share this with the world . . . I painted this a year ago, so it's great to finally see it in print! Been a dream of mine since I was 9 or 10, to draw for MAD, so it feels great to finally look through an issue with my work in it. My favorite part about the whole thing was working with art director Sam Vivano, he's a great art director, and I hope to work with MAD more in the future just so I can continue to learn from Sam. It's a fantastic issue, has great work in it from Hermann Mejia . . . worth the whole $4.99 just for his stuff!

How long did this take to create? Looks great, I'm going to pick up a copy when I go to the store today. Give me something to look forward to since I hate grocery shopping.

Thank you everyone!!!!! I had two weeks for this job, but only a week to paint it. The sketching stage took a while to get approved, I did many versions . . . .
