So I was excited to get the mail this week and find my ordered copy of Tom Richmond’s The Mad Art of Caricature. For the uninformed, Tom is one of the regular artists for Mad Magazine along with a host of other projects. Pretty much most of the movie/tv spoofs of the last 10 years has been his work. He also hosts a blog and has been an invaluable resource on copyright and caricatures.
Here is my signed copy.
On this blog post you can see Tom actually drawing the Alfred E Neuman to ship to me (ok maybe it wasn’t mine but it looks like it COULD be).
The book looks amazing and I can’t wait to dig in and find out all the things I have been screwing up in my own caricatures. But Tom, I think your foreign printer messed up a little with this insert. I can’t find this book or this author online..haha
On a separate note, I want to give a shout out to a Google Plus friend who has been very supportive over there. Artist Eric Johnson has created a new site called Made for Art . This is how he describes the site:
If you enjoy browsing interesting, creative sites showcasing the talents of interesting, creative people, you should check out my new site. Whether its art, poetry, webcomics, ebooks, sculpture, photography, crafts or hobbies, etc., let MADE FOR ART be your link to Creative Minds . And if you are a Creative Mind and would like to share your work and links on this unique, up and comings site, just let me know you’d like to be added to the MADE FOR ART circle!
Head over there as he has featured my work and if you want Eric to include you in the future reach out and support him.
