Harry North is the only artist to contribute original material to both US and British versions of MAD.
North was doing low-key work at IPC, once Britain’s largest comic producer, before an opportunity with Look In prompted Harry to go free-lance in 1971,with features including On the Buses, ALF and more.
North was drawing MAD-like film spoofs in colour for Asterix creator René Goscinny in Pilote when spotted by US MAD’s John Putnam and others. 
He moved from Britain to New York in 2004, and has worked for ad agency Ogilvy & Mather and others.
