Jack Davis 1924 – 2016

We were sad to learn yesterday of the death of long-time Mad magazine cartoonist Jack Davis at the age of 91. Jack made his mark not only at Mad but all over the world of illustration – advertising, album covers, film posters; you name it and Jack illustrated it in his own delightful style. In his honor we are re-posting a post featuring his renditions of Timothy from artwork for Waterhole #3 (1967). Thanks Jack, and rest well.

It was announced today that veteran Mad Magazine artist Jack Davis will be retiring at the young-spring-chicken age of 90. To celebrate his amazing career, we thought it appropriate to re-post this entry from 2012. Thank you Jack, and take it easy – you’ve earned it!

Today’s pics are artwork from promotional materials for Waterhole #3 (1967), featuring caricatures of the cast by the stellar comic artist Jack Davis. Timothy makes a great cartoon!
