Ever since I could read, I have admired Mort Drucker's work in Mad. He's the guy who drew the wonderful movie and TV show parodies in the magazine. Until today, I had no idea what he looked like, or what his voice sounded like. Thanks to the magic of the YouTubes, now I know!
It's always interesting to see how an artist sets up his studio, and in this video, we get a good look at Drucker's workplace.
Mort Drucker, world famous caricaturist and humorous illustrator best known for his work in MAD magazine has made an exclusive, never before seen tutorial film about his process and life experiences.
