Summer of '82

I love Elwood Smith's cartoon illustrations, but I would NOT want to be anywhere near the beach portrayed here on this record sleeve from an album with a variety of musical artists.

We'll come back to an appreciation of Smith's illustrations later.

It's got a nice Mad Magazine flavour that really reminds me of the summer of 1982, actually. Nice post.

Yes, I'm surprised Smith was not a contributor to Mad, at least that I know of.
