Going Mad!

You can see from my portrait by Kelly Freas at the top of the page that I bear an uncanny resemblance to Alfred E. Neuman. I’m not the only one. I had a party for Harvey Kurtzman, the creator of Mad magazine, at my crib back in ’92. As part of the festivities we had a Alfred look-alike contest judged by Mr. Kurtzman himself. Not surprisingly, maybe, my son Donovan (to Harvey’s right) won (the nut doesn’t fall far from the tree).. Just above Donovan is my daughter Valissa, she didn’t make a bad Alfreida. I see Brian (Hi and Lois) Walker in the crowd there and Karen O-Connell, co-author of the George Herriman bio. Karen’s hubby Patrick McDonnell was also at the party, as was Al Jaffee and the great Will Elder (who was the hilarious life of the party). The beautiful Jan Arneson, the Art Director of The United Nations is above Valissa. A good time was had by Alfred look-alikes!

Here’s a self-portrait by Harvey that I love…

It reminds me of the portrait Dean Yeagle did of Reamer Keller for my soon to be released Arf Museum book. Great cartoonists think alike, I guess!

  1. software Says:

    More or less nothing seems worth thinking about. Not much on my mind today. Today was a total loss. My mind is like a bunch of nothing, but maybe tomorrow. So it goes. I just don’t have much to say recently, but whatever.

I.T.C.H is looking forward to your thoughts. Please, no flame. Thanks!
