Happy Birthday Tom Richmond
The emperor of the caricature industry, proud member of the "Usual Gang of Idiots" (regular contributor of MAD Magazine), award winning illustrator, Billion Dollar Playboy, friend and long time boss turns 43 today.
This is a few years old already, hence the absence of extra wrinkles and fatigue. This was done for an MCAD newsletter to accompany an interview with Tom regarding a scholarship the National Cartoonists Society was offering to students majoring in comic art. Unfortunately it was not used due to space constraints.
Before anyone asks, "How could you do this to your boss?!"...believe me, he has seen it all, and a whole lot worse. But, as is always the case when I look at anything I've done that's even a few months old, I feel it's not very good, and I am much over due to take another stab at him.
