Mostly sketches. Occasionally a painting. Nothing political other than caricatures reinforcing the truism "Politics is Show Business for Ugly People".
Nice posing. I like the thrust of Batman's jaw.
I love it when you do super-hero stuff Rick. Have you ever read the modern day DC "Bizarro World" comics? Silly, offbeat, non-conventional stories featuring standard heroes, Batman, Superman, Aquaman, created by independent talents like Harvey Pekar and Jaime Hernandez. Very funny and creative stuff. Marvel did a similar thing with "Strange Tales II" just published.
No I haven't, but I will look it up.
I like Rick's subdued Don Martin-isms in his drawings.
Don Matinisms. And Tom Carrol talking MAD. Guess what I got to see by going to CAPs about 3 months ago. Sergio Aragones showing a slide show of all the Mad Crew being taken on the Bill Gaines exotic vacations. That's how Gaines gave the crew bonuses. I got to see Don Martin at his leisure. With Jack Davis, Sergio, and others from that era.
I just broke one of the laces on my Don Martins....Yeah, I like the ferocious Batjaw, too!
The Bizzaro World books sound cool. I would happily accept one as a belated Xmas present....
A Don Martin moment: What is the sound of a prince climbing Rapunzel's hair?Flabadip!(The hair coming down the tower)Ka-Chunk! (the prince leaps onto the hair and grabs it)Shook shook shook shook! (the prince shimmies up the hair)Mad's maddest artist indeed!
I like that you're still using Weezner's cartoon of you for your ID , Ron.
His cartoons are right on. Hope to see more.
