Mort Drucker, Don Martin, Sergio Aragones… These are a few Mad Magazine artists that were influential to me when growing up. In the mid 80′s, I was about 10 years old and I loved Mad Magazine. I would collect my weekly allowance and spend it on that publication. The satire, the different drawing and artistic styles, the caricatures… all resonated with me. I would copy, trace and eventually learn to mimic the styles I loved in Mad. Below is a snapshot of the collection I acquired over time (Not seen are some of my earlier mags… they don’t have covers and are worn from re-reading over and over again).
