Totally Mad

Enjoyed receiving Mad’s latest collection entitled “Totally Mad, 60 Years of Humor, Satire, Stupidity and Stupidity.” Lucky enough to have received a credit (always nice to see my last name spelled correctly,) and the inclusion of my
“Angry Birds” cover from last Summer. An equal, if not greater thrill being placed right beneath the  art of one of my Mad fave’s-of-all- time, Sergio Aragones. Came with a nice letter from Editor, John Ficarra, with a footnote saying the title debuted on the NY Times bestseller list for graphic novels.
Graphic, Yes! Novel, Yes!

Adobe Ideas, Updated to Version 2.5!

Wahooo! Christmas just came early!
Adobe just updated their mobile app:
"Ideas" to version 2.5! Hot Dang! (Can you tell I’m Giddy!) Note the new tools: a brush tool that simulates pressure sensitivity by tapering the end of strokes, a pen, pencil, marker,
AND a paint bucket! Oh Yeh! (And, of course, it’s still native vector, so you can export and open in Illustrator on your archaic thing called a computer or PC, oh, I forget...) I was just thinking recently how I haven’t used Ideas on my iPad in quite a while. Well, it looks like that might have just changed! Maestro, bravo! BRAVO!
