MR. ZIP

I have to mail some RANKIN/BASS packages right now! Do you remember when the post office had a cool advertising character like MR. ZIP (Image from the NEW book AD BOY) instead of rising postal rates that change every three months?

SUMMER IS HERE!

...and I am on vacation right now! :)

LANE SMITH

My pal LANE SMITH did this piece of art for me back when we issued the MAD MONSTER PARTY soundtrack on CD, for the booklet. LANE designed JAMES & THE GIANT PEACH and has illustrated and written many wonderful children's books including THE STINKY CHEESE MAN and the last DR. SEUSS book.

ALLEN SWIFT

Here is a picture ALLEN gave me of himself from about 20 years ago. ALLEN did all the voices in MAD MONSTER PARTY except the women voices.
