Cartoonist Al Jaffee Discusses the Art of the MAD Fold-In
This year mark’s the 50th anniversary of the MAD fold-in, created by legendary cartoonist Al Jaffee. For the last half century nearly every issue of MAD has featured the fold-in, with every single one created by Jaffee. It’s an extraordinary achievement in an extraordinary career, and Jaffee sat down in an interview with ABC News to discuss the process of creating the feature each month, and the one fold-in in 50 years that the magazine had to say no to.
You can view the interview on Yahoo’s website. At 92 years old, Jaffee is just as engaging, sharp, and busy as ever, and the discussion of how he creates the fold-ins is fascinating and, if you ever attempted to guess at how he goes about creating them, possibly a little surprising.
