This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Mort Drucker is an American caricaturist and comics artist best known as a decades-long contributor to the satiric magazine Mad, specializing in drawing movie satires.

Born in Brooklyn, New York City, Drucker entered the comics field by assisting Bert Whitman on Debbie Dean in 1947. He then joined the staff of National Periodical Publications (DC Comics), where he worked as a retoucher. Early in the 1950s, Drucker began doing freelance work.

In the fall of 1956, shortly after the departure of original editor Harvey Kurtzman, Drucker found his way to Mad.  His debut there coincided with a World Series broadcast, and publisher Bill Gaines told Drucker that if the Brooklyn Dodgers won the game, he would be hired. The Dodgers did win. Capricious though Drucker's alleged audition process may have been, it made for a good anecdote. More than a half century later, Drucker held the longest uninterrupted tenure of any Mad artist.
During the same period, Drucker pursued assignments in television animation, movie poster art and magazine illustration, including covers for Time. He remained active for DC, illustrating War Stories, among other titles. In 1962, Drucker teamed with Paul Laiken on the JFK Coloring Book for Kanrom Publishers.

Between 1984 and 1986, Drucker drew the syndicated daily comic strip Benchley in cooperation with Jerry Dumas.

Drucker also worked as an illustrator of children's books. His album covers include art for the pop band Bears and the long-running metal act Anthrax.

Mort Drucker was recognized for his work with the National Cartoonists Society Special Features Award (1985, 1986, 1987, 1988) and its Reuben Award (1987).
