MAD Man

Since the cover has officially been revealed online, I guess I can spill the beans.

I submitted an article idea to MAD about "other uses for the iPad." The editors liked one gag in particular and decided to use it for the cover of the latest issue -- which features, of course, MAD's take on the latest Apple must-have gadget.

So I sold a cover idea -- my first -- to MAD. Is that cool or what?

I haven't actually seen the issue on the stands yet. I need to hit the local market and peruse a copy in person.

MAD might see a spike in circulation as I purchase every available copy in the Midwest.

UPDATE! Just got my subscription copy. Great issue...it even includes the latest episode of  my strip "Projectile Vomit Baby" --the world's cutest serial vomiter.

Cartoon Update

It's been awhile since I've posted about  my cartooning.

For those interested, I've cracked a couple of new markets -- BOYS' LIFE and the venerable WALL STREET JOURNAL.

I'm also collaborating on some toons with the wonderfully twisted Kit Lively. So far we've made a couple of sales to MAD and opened up a new market -- MAD Australia. Kit's also turned me onto some great  -- and grisly -- horror films.

There's some even more exciting MAD news -- which I'm not at liberty to divulge quite yet.

Stay tuned....
