Happy 89th birthday to the one and only Mort Drucker. Mort's movie parodies and brilliant caricatures in @mad.magazine were what began my love affair with MAD and the cartoons therein when I was a kid.
On a trip to New York when I was 25, the very generous Adrian C. Sinnott drove me to Mort's studio where I spent the afternoon listening to him teach me about drawing hands, how he learned to use wash and colours, how to get movement into his pieces. He's the most generous cartoonist you'll ever meet. That afternoon changed my life.
Fellow artists and Mort fans, I've posted a Dropbox link here to my collection of Mort's work over the last 15 years. I look at it all the time for inspiration. You're welcome to it! Everyone should see his amazing creations.
Thanks, Mort. Happy Birthday!
