Will Elder, my favorite Mad artist, has passed away. For more information on Bill Elder's contributions to MAD magazine, the world of comic art in general, the advetising industry and much more seek out the wonderful "The Mad Playboy Of Art" softcover, and go to Philbert's blog from the link located on the left rail. I've also included a link to a fantastic article.
I'll leave you with one of my favorite pieces of Elder art from the 1950's entitled "The Restaurant!". You need to click on the image to really enjoy the detail. The detail is amazing. Enjoy.
