Al Jaffee

While I was home for Christmas, my friend Kevin and I went to MoCCA for the very first time.  MoCCA is the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art in New York City (MoCCA).  Right now, they have several exhibits, but the featured exhibit was work from comic artist Al Jaffee.  He is well known for the work he's done for Mad magazine, most notably the Mad Magazine Fold-In comics, comics that read as two separate images when folded in and when unfolded.  P.S. He is presently working on an illustrated autobiography!  Several of these illustrations were included in the exhibit.

Jaffee's work was exhibited on orange walls!
I'm not sure if they're orange all the time or just for this.
I'd be interested in knowing the answer to that, actually.
This was also in the exhibit.
An example of a Mad Fold-In.
What a delightful man!
