Mad About Cartoons

Bill Wray is trying to make the transition fine art but is known as a cartoonist, a background painter/ Art director and sometimes animation director. This will be the place he post his ocasional animation and cartooning work and also be a place to bitch or wax sentimentally about cartoons in general. It’s been a love and hate relationship for many years and the long journey may not be quite over.

Old Mad Sample page

Here is a sample page I did for Joe Orlando back when he thought he had some pull with Mad--- He was really disappointed with the result, but when he retired, they hired me anyway. Joe could be a fun funny guy when joking around in his office, but he a sadistic fussy controlling side I thought came from his own lack of security as an artist of distinctly C level. Looking back it's not the greatest page,maybe it was me...

I thought your run at Mad was incredible. The world is full of goofballs in charge.

Probably not as dynamic as some of your other stuff, but that's what being a good artist is all about, keeping on improving.

Granted, the page is still pretty good!

Great page,that looks like a fun one to ink.
It's funny, they've reprinted all the classic CREEPY and ERRIE recently, and man was that very capable yet bland age of comics. guys like Grey Morrow, Joe Orlando and Reed Crandall are all great illustrators, but the make Al Willamson and Alex Toth look down right cartoony! now that dark horse is doing "creepy" again, any chance of you doing a story? seeing this page, that would be super keen.

Very Cool William. I actually knew Joe from the very first cover I did for Mad. Joe was one of the three guys who called me in to his office. He was a genuine Guy.

YOur work is awesome by the way. Thanks for the kind words on my blog~T
