Gouache on board. The face of Alfred E Neuman is the standard Mad office " Alfred - Pre- Painted- Reproduction- Face " used with some additional painting and rendering of Alfred's beard and Santa Claus Hat by Jack Rickard.
This portrait was used in the left corner at the top of the magazine on the cover of MAD Issue No. 188. I think every cover should have Alfred E Neuman on it and be the main focus of every cover. That's why I used to buy the magazine. This painting was published over 43 years ago.
