Cool Caricaturist – Mort Drucker of the MAD Magazine!

Mort Drucker turned 80 last year. Drucker’s caricatures fascinated me for years, before I even figured out the fact that there was an artist who was responsible for creating those extremely detailed, and beautifully proportioned caricatures.

It took me a long-long time to discover that those sketches and drawings that we see in the magazines were drawn by real, live people. For me, until about the age of 12, they were just “printed”. I didn’t think that humans drew them before they got printed! Weird…but true!

Drucker’s caricatures make you wonder how someone could have the patience, the steadiness of hand, and the vision to put it all on the paper in such an amazing manner.

Here are some links that will help you explore the works and understand the personality of this great caricaturist.

  1. The Mad Magazine is fun:) Though I don’t pretend to understand all of it (most of the jokes and the characters are unknown to me) yet I love the artwork it presents. It think it’s the best thing to have happened to caricaturists.
