The Great Jack Davis

Ed here: I likely became a fan of Jack Davis when I started reading Mad magazine in the early fifties. Davis went on to an enormous career in virtually every kind of commercial art. Drew Freidman has posted many of Davis pieces for TV Guide over the years. The site is well worth linking to. http://drewfriedman.blogspot.com/2011/06/jack-davis-covering-tv-guide.html

Always loved the work for Mad magazine. I was a little surprised when he did the cover of the Guess WHo's greatest hits. Slowly I began to realize that he was everywhere. By the time I finally saw Serpico (in the mid 80s on video) I realized that the movie was cast so that it already looked like the eventual Jack Davis parody.

Davis is also responsible for the funny, sarcastic comic-book advert for Altman's The Long Goodbye.
