Number 1176: Cracked Jack Davis
Between his stints at Mad (mid-fifties to mid-sixties), Jack Davis’s familiar art was everywhere. I saw his work on magazine covers, record album covers, kids' books (Meet Abraham Lincoln, North American Indians, at Dell (Yak-Yak) and at Mad imitator Cracked.
Jack Davis is a true original, and he's been at his craft for a very long time. Here’s a photo of him I found online, taken at his studio in his home in Atlanta.
These pages are from two 1960 issues of Cracked, #13 and #15.
