    Description

    Jack Davis What Did You Do in School Today? Original Cartoon Art (c. 1950s). Davis' career is largely defined by his star-player status with MAD -- both the comic book and the magazine. His broader scope lies partly in such self-contained cartoons as this one, which casts a sardonic glance at middle-class family life. Might say that Davis was anti-bullying before the attitude became fashionable. Brilliant in its combination of subtle, ironic humor with brash visual imagery. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 10" x 15". Excellent condition.
