Return of The Mad Men

In a world gone Mad, Jack Davis & Co. had a reunion to talk about the good ol’ crazy days of Mad Magazine. “The usual gang of idiots”, as the writers/illustrators called themselves, have been humoring and horrifying readers with their colorful and off-color comic spoofs since 1952.

RIP: Blake Edwards

Legendary comedy director (and the husband of Mary Poppins), Blake Edwards, passed away this morning at the age of 88, but left us with plenty to laugh about…

Keep On Druckin!

Along with Jack Davis and Jack Rickard, Mort Drucker came from The Mad Magazine School of Art. Drucker’s cartoony style and celebrity caricatures have made him one of the “funniest” illustrators in the history of the movie/comics business!

Mad About Jack Rickard (1922-1983)

Jack Rickard may not have been as well-known as Jack Davis at MAD Magazine, but he was just as important to the wise-cracking weekly. No famous movie star or TV personality got away from the wrath of his wicked pen…

Philberts

Phil Roberts is yet another contemporary artist who draws in that humorous Jack Davis style. In fact, he not only draws like him — he actually did the poster for The Bad News Bears remake in 2005. But what’s interesting is that he also happens to be a very well known surf artist, too!

Rick Meyerowitz

Yesterday, I mentioned the comedic movie poster stylings of Jack Davis — and today here’s Rick Meyerowitz, another incredibly prolific illustrator who worked at National Lampoon (where he did the infamous Animal House one-sheet) and later with Maira Kalman of The NY Times.

MAD MAN!

Jack Davis is like the Jerry Lewis of illustrators. What a ham! From Alfred E. Neuman’s MAD Magazine to countless TV Guide covers, his comedic, caricaturesque style has inspired and influenced (i.e., been ripped off by) legions of cartoonists. His parodies will likely be parodied forever!
