A SON OF MAD
For the latest issue of MAD (vol 2, #7), I drew this tribute to the 1959 signet paperback cover for SON OF MAD painted by famed science fiction illustrator and MAD's then main magazine and paperback cover artist Frank "Kelly" Freas.
"The Weisenheim Museum" is a new section in MAD where various artists are hired to create a full page image, or images, and discuss MAD's immeasurable influence on their work. I chose to pay tribute to this particular Kelly Freas paperback cover.
Art director, Suzy Hutchinson.
